Hi,

Just check for the key combination on your keyboard (ex. Fn + F4 or F5..depends on the what key was designed for the touchpad), the touchpad might be locked.

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.

Hi

Press fn + f7 key to unlock the touchpad.

If not, run the SYSTEM RESTORE to bring back the old setting. Go to START, choose ACCESSORIES, choose SYSTEM TOOLS, choose system restore and choose PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES.

> you just have to reinstall driver for your touchpad but if after doing that and still not working then touchpad might be busted

My touchpad has stoped working on my Acer Aspire 5732 Z


Hello,

Sometimes it differs but you can try pressing FN and F7 together on your keyboard to see if that will enable the touchpad again.FN should be next to your left-ctrl on your laptop keyboard.

On other Acers, there's either a seperate button to enable the touchpad or a different Function key. See on your keyboard the function keys and choose the one that looks like a tochpad, with a pointing hand. Sometimes the icon on the key just looks like a mini-touch-pad.

I have HP Compaq 610. Touchpad scroll was working but when I install windows 7, my touchpad scroll stoped working. Can anybody help me to resolve this problem?


You will need to install the WIndows 7 drivers for your touchpad from HP. I have recently been on HP's site and find VERY few Win-7 drivers for any of the older machines.

I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall the touchpad drivers from Device Manager.
Press Windows Key and R key.
Type devmgmt.msc and click on OK.
In the Device Manager expand Mouse and other pointing devices.
Right click on touchpad and select Uninstall.
Right click on the touchpad now and select scan for hardware changes.
You can even try to reinstall the new touchpad drivers for your notebook model from acer support website.

I believe your touchpad is damage, but did you try to use Fn+F7 to enable touchpad.
Just in case your touchpad is disable when you start.
