LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

SOURCE: my touchpad pointer jumps around, doesn't go where

Hello

You probably need to download and install the touchpad driver that is compatible with Vista from Sony. This will add the functionality to the Mouse Properties in Control Panel that you need.

or you should download the Vista Update for the pointing device for your Sony and it should solve the problem.

The updated driver had a selection to turn off the tapping feature.

SOURCE: I have an emachines e442-v634

Hello,
I would suggest you check the BIOS if everything is detected properly. Like the hard drive and the memory. If both are working properly and being detected by BIOS properly, then you just might need to install your Windows 7 thru USB. You might need to use a different computer to convert your Win 7 OS DVD to USB installer.
1. Use a different computer w/ DVD 2. Use ISO software to convert the Win7 DVD to ISO 3. Download the converter from this link click here or directly from this link 4. Make sure you have an available USB Flash Disk that has a capacity of 4GB or higher. 5. Once you're done converting the Win7 DVD to an ISO file, use the tool above to convert the ISO file into a USB installer.
This will only work if your hard drive is properly detected. Bootmgr error means 2 things, either the hard drive is not detected or corrupted windows installation.
Hope this helps!

When I plug in an external mouse, it won't click.


If an external mouse does not work correctly, you may need to install device drivers for it. Windows does not support all 'mice' just by plugging them in. Download and install the drivers for the mouse from the manufacturers web site. Do NOT do a factory recovery for a device driver problem.

Accer emachine e725 touchpad mouse not working............


Plug in a USB mouse and then try to download the Acer driver for your touchpad here: http://support.emachines.com/em/driver/index.html

If you install the newest driver off of the Emachines website, and the touchpad still doesn't work, then it is possible that the touchpad has gone bad.

My touchpad doesn't work on my aspire one D255 netbook. The wireless mouse works but the touchpad doesn't respond to any touch. How can I make the touch pad work? Is there a function?


Hi!

If the touchpad worked well before and suddenly doesn't work any more, it is most likely it was stopped by pressing the key combination FN F7. To be sure please press the same combination again and check if it works.

If it still not work, please check if the touchpad drivers are installed on you netbook.
To do so, please open device manager. (opening the device manager could be done in more different ways, e.g. click START button and, depending on your operating system enter devmgmt.msc in the Run box for windows XP or in the Search programs and files box in windows 7).
Now, under mice and other pointing devices you should find your touchpad.
If the touchpad is not listed in device manager, drivers for it have to be installed.
Drivers for your netbook's hardware are on the acer support page.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Every time I boot my EEE PC the touchopad is disabled. I plug in a USB mouse, enable the Elan smartpad through the properties of the Elan smartpad and it works ok until I reboot again. How do I enable it...


Usually there is a FN key that will enable the touchpad. I have EEPC and mine is the little blue FN key (usually next to the CTRL and Windows Key) + one of the number keys. Look for a little blue symbol that looks like your touchpad.

As for it being disabled every time you start, I find that very weird. Sometimes installing a wireless mouse, installs software that tells the system to disable the touchpad, so that the 2 don't conflict when using the mouse.

Wireless Mouse on a laptop with built inTouchpad on the keyboard


No need to disable the touchpad they should both work at the same time. Have you tried both the mice on another PC?. The first mouse should have the correct software already installed but you will most probably need to install software for the microsoft mouse. I hope you have tried resetting by hitting the button on the receiver then while its flashing the button on bottom of the mouse? If all this fails do have any other USB devices you can test on laptop?......good luck

PS I hope its not the batteries
