First step is to go to your touchpad properties via the control panel and make sure everything looks ok. If the settings are ok, then go to your BIOS (when you turn on the laptop you will get an option to press escape or delte or F2 to go to the settings/BIOS. Once here, go ahead and look for an option to reset all settings to their default state. Save the settings and restart the computer. Hope this helps.

Im on my niece acer aspire 5534 laptop and her mouse touchpad isnt working can u help


There should be an image on the number or function rows of the keyboard that is colored the same color as the FN key. On that look for the one that resembles the touch pad, press and hold the FN key then press the touchpad key to activate the touchpad. I think it is the F7 key.

My touchpad is not working on my acer aspire 5315 my cat walked over keyboerd when i was using it and curser has gone what can i do


Hi there,
Your Touchpad is disabled, thats why its not working, to enable again, simply press Fn+F7 Key, you will see a small blue icon on F7 key, with a finger pointing, its basically a short cut for enabling/disabling Touchpad,
If it doesnt works, restart your laptop once, and restore the BIOS settings to default, save the settings and reboot laptop, and it should be working again,
Feel free to reply to this post if you require more assistance,
Regards-BA

I've tried pressing fn and f7 at the same time and it won't work, neither will any of the other suggestions. And my computer keeps saying that the touchpad is enabled. Is there anything else that I can do...


Try hitting just the F7 key only. I had an issue with an HP Mini laptop and was hitting the Fn and the F7 key and found the key combination didn't work when I pressed both Fn and F7. But it did work when I just hit the F7 key (even though "F7" was written in blue, the same color as the Fn key, it turned out that I didn't need to press Fn and the key for F7 to gain the functionality of the F7 key. HP tech support informed me of that when I called them due to a similar issue I experienced a while back).

Try to hit F7 alone. That may help you out.

As for the touchpad, it should be enabled. (Unless you're using a different pointing device and want it disabled). There are options where you can turn off the touchpad on start up, but I would advise against doing so.

Thanks. The Fn F7 idea did not work, the Enable/Disable toggle in Control Panel made no difference BUT the simple pressing of the TINY finger pointing next to the power button DID work. Duh!
