Restart your computer while holding the space bar. This will rebuild the devicetree which is where the trackpad and mouse instructions are, and that may clear up this issue.

Like most modern laptops, IBM/Lenovo laptops feature a built-in touchpad that you can use as a substitute for an external mouse device. If you experience a non-functional or "locked" touchpad, then you have one of two possible problems; either the touchpad's drivers are corrupt or a user has manually locked the touchpad. In either case, you can unlock your touchpad and restore it to functionality quickly.

Open your web browser and paste the following URL in the address bar:

Click the "Download" button and then click "I agree" to save the Lenovo touchpad driver installation file to your computer. Double-click the EXE file that you downloaded. Doing so opens the driver's installation wizard. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-install your Lenovo's touchpad drivers. If your locked touchpad is due to a corrupt or outdated device driver, then your touchpad is now unlocked and functional. Activate Touchpad Hold the Windows logo key and press the R key to open a run command box. Type "control mouse" in the box and press Enter. The Mouse Properties control panel window opens. Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click the Lenovo Touchpad in the "Devices" list and click the "Enable" button to activate the Touchpad. Click the "OK" button to save your changes. Your Lenovo's touchpad is unlocked and ready for use. Lenovo support

Aspire as3810TZ touchpad stopped working.


Press the mouse lock button. Most times you toggle the touchpad by a button at the top in the middle of the touchpad.

Some systems will have you to tap twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad to toggle the touchpad.

I've also seen some systems where you would have to Press and Hold the ALT or the FN key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

if all fails Click Start/Control Panel and look for mouse or touchpad. Go in and set the settings back to default.

You could try reinstalling the touchpad drivers.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Touchpad rivers.

Problem with touchpad. when i try to type i get the uppercase numbers instead of the letters.


Hello,
I believe you mean keyboad, because the touchpad is just the equivalent of a mouse.
Look for a key called CAPS LOCK. It may be pressed locking your keyboard to enter only caps. Usually this key has a LED that lights when key is in LOCK position.

Question: What are uppercase numbers?

Hope it helps.

There should be a button just above the touchpad to reactivate it. If not, it will be the Fn key + one of the Function buttons at the top which look like a touchpad icon.
