The touchpad doesnt work


Hi integrity078...
Try this solution to your problem
*****************************************

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How to Fix Touchpad on a Laptop


<p><span>The touchpad of your laptop is a most important and frequently used input device. If your touchpad stops functioning, it may be difficult for you to use your laptop. Touchpad normally faces following issues. <br /><br /><b>Laptop Problems and Their Solutions</b><br /><br /><b>Problems with the driver</b><br /><br />Computer hardware communicates with your computer through real time software called driver. Drivers control computer hardware. It is possible that virus or human activity may damage the driver. You can check your driver's status through computer's device manager. You'll see a yellow color indication under "Mouse and other pointing devices" heading. You can download new driver form your laptop's manufacturer website. <br /><br /><b>Problems with connection</b><br /><br />Touchpad's connection with motherboard is delicate. It can be broken due to heating and other inner problems. So, if there is no problem with the driver, then the connection of the touchpad to the motherboard may have broken. <br /><br /><b>Misuse</b><br /><br />Touchpad of the laptop is the most delicate input device. Some people tap on it too hard or use a shrill tool as an alternative of a finger. This can damage the pad. <br /><br /><b>Fn Keys</b><br /><br />Touchpad driver is slightly different from the other devices that need drivers to function properly. It came with an operating system that you don't need to re-install it. Laptop keyboard comes with many functions than the common keyboard. It has Fn keys which are called function keys. Sometimes, your laptop's touchpad stops working because you accidentally hit some one of the Fn keys. You can follow these instructions to make your laptop touchpad working again. <br /><br />1- Search for Fn key on your laptop keyboard. It is commonly located next to the Ctrl key. <br />2- Now search for F1 to F12 keys on the laptop keyboard. These keys control sound, brightness of the screen, wifi etc. They are located on top of the keyboard. Look for the key which has icon on it that looks similar to the touchpad. <br />3- Let's take an example of Toshiba laptop. It uses F10 key to enable or disable touch-pad. Hold down Fn key along with F10 key to enable the laptop touch-pad. <br /><br /><b>Cleaning the laptop touch-pad</b><br /><br />It is a good practice to clean your laptop touchpad. To clean it, take a cloth dampened with sprit. Wipe your touchpad off with that cloth. <br />Laptop touchpad work best in moderate temperature and gasping environment. Moisture, excessive heat, can damage it. Try using your laptop with tidy hands. Sweaty and dirty hands can cause problems. <br /><br /></span><span><span> </span></span><br /><span><br /> </span>

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.

TOUCH PAD LOCKED


Hi,
Just check whether you have any hot key to disable the Touchpad from the keyboard. You can find this in your user manual or you can find out some symbol with hand on the keyboard. Press FN key and that key.

If you are not able to find this option means go through this step.

1) Switch the PC power off completely.
2) Unplug the power cord and take the battery out.
3) Press and hold the power button in around 60 seconds.
4) Put the battery in and the power cord.
5) Switch the PC power on.

Now you check whether your Touchpad is working or not.
Please let me know the status.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Dell touchpad disappeared


Try using your touch pad when your laptop is running on batteries (while power supply is disconnected).
Many of new power supply supplied with dell laptops are faulty and cause touchpad to work erratically/horribly

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad
