Many touchpads seem to click by themselves if you don't apply enough pressure when you use them. Changing your behaviour might help, and some touchpad drivers have options for adjusting their accidential-tapping-response. =)

If - however - the touchpad clicks all by itself even when you're not near it at all, maybe the touchpad buttons are a bit loose? Check if the springs beneath them seem to work like they should.

Go to acer website and download that model manual, make sure you have ADOBE READER on this machine..If your pointer is not working then you need to download the touchpad driver or if you are using a mouse then it may be a bad one.

My acer aspire has a roaming curser


sounds like you need to go to your control panel and go to mouse and go to pointer options and check pointer precision, uncheck snap to or uncheck display pointer trails. Your problem will be in mouse and what you have checked or not checked.

I want to acquire a written users manual for the Acer Aspire 6530 laptop, as there was not one provided when I bought the brand new laptop on 13th October. As a beginner using a laptop, I am not proficent...


What you require a book which can teach you how to use a laptop computer. Best book is in the Dummy series. If you can get that book you will learn the basics of laptop. Now days there are many other help books are available. Basically there is no difference in the use of desktop and laptop. All the functions are same except instead of mouse you have touch pad. To download the manual go to the following link and download http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ACER/ASPIRE%206530G-_E

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

hey
please elaborate on what exactly has happened..
if by mouse pointer jammed u mean touchpad not working
then first check if it has been accidentally disabled, in acer laptops press fn and then a key in blue colour which looks like a mouse pad in the f1-f12 series.
else, try attaching an usb mouse to check if the pointer is moving or if there is a problem wid your touchpad.
if not, it could be because of a virus which has changed ur registry files, in such a case the problem gets a little more complicated where in ull have to restore file,etc etc
for further keep free to mail me @

Cursor disabled


Try going to control panel, then personalization, then mouse pointers. Under mouse properties, go to pointers and try to use windows black (system scheme). See if changing your mouse poiners makes it appear.
