Acer :: 8940G's Touchpad Stops Working When Any Key Is Pressed

Nov 13, 2009

Has anyone experienced a problem with Acer notebooks where when the user presses any key on the keyboard, the touchpad gets disabled? The 8940G we are reviewing has this problem and I have never seen this happen before. When the touchpad stops functioning the little Synaptics status thing on the taskbar still shows the sensitivity blob when you finger presses the touchpad. This tells me it is still working but something else is interfering.

I have looked around the Synaptics menu for anything relating to this feature and found nothing. I disabled the "hide cursor when typing" feature in Windows already and that didnt fix it.

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Stops Working

Feb 15, 2009

If anyone out there runs into an issue with the touchpad on a Sony Vaio where it suddenly stops working it may be due to static electricity. I bought a brand new VGN-NS240E (Jan 08 @ Best Buy) and while setting it up I ran into this issue and have seen many other reports on the WEB of the Sony touchpads suddenly dying. Try these steps for an easy fix:

1 - power down the unit.
2 - unplug the power adapter.
3 - remove the battery.
4 - hold down the power switch for about a minute or two.
5 - re-insert the battery.
6 - reconnect the power adapeter.
7 - power the unit on and see if the touchpad lives!

These quick and simple steps worked for me 2x. Noted on the second time it happened that I shocked the machine after walking across the carpet, that's why I said above I think its related to a static charge - bad design on this model of touch pad I suppose. I have Dell laptops and Acers never seen it before until this Sony.

Dell Inspiron N4050 :: Touchpad Stops Working Properly Every Time Plug In External HD That Is AC Powered

Jan 14, 2013

The touchpad of my Inspiron N4050 stops working properly everytime i plug my external HD that is AC powered or the HDMI cable. It doesn't matter if the AC of the laptop is connected or not, the touchpad becomes impossible to use. I tried using it in other places thinking of an energy problem at my place, but it still occurs. Other laptops work normaly with the external harddrive and the HDMI.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Touchpad Stops Responding To Any Gestures Or Mouse Cursor Keeps Shaking On Screen

Sep 17, 2014

I've been having problems with this device since the day I bought it. The second day I owned it a bad pixel jumped onto the screen. After pushing it for some time physically on the surface of the screen it dissapears for another day or two.

But my biggest problem is taht sometimes touchpad simply stops responding to any gestures or mouse cursor keeps shaking on my screen. The only ting I can do is turn off the whole touchpad and wait for it to repair itself.

Also it happens that for no apparent reason my notebook behaves like as if I had been pressing CRTL button all the time, while I dont do it at all. Pressing S key alone makes it run into save options. Left clicking on the page makes it open in a new bookmark.

Acer Aspire E1 :: Touch Randomly Stops Working - Windows 8.1

Mar 5, 2015

I have had my aspire e1 touch for a couple months now and a couple weeks in it randomly wouldn't detect the touch ability.  I have to shut the laptop down and back on again for it to work (simple restart won't work)  It's a new computer so I haven't upgraded any os, it's running with the Windows 8.1 it came with and I have chrome as the browser.  It seems to happen when I wake it from sleep, not in the middle of using it.  When the touch is not working, the device manager doesn't even detect that touch is an option (it's hidden, but grey and cannot be enabled)....

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Wireless Stops Working And The Light Is Off And It Won't Go On When I Move The Switch

May 3, 2009

Okay so my first question is this: Right now my wireless light is on showing that it's wireless, but if I close my laptop, or if it goes to sleep, and then I go back onto my laptop the wireless stops working and the light is off and it won't go on when I move the switch. I have a Aspire 5590

My second question is: I've hooked up a second monitor to my laptop I checked the settings and it works like this, if I move my mouse to the right and keep going, my mouse appears on the second screen. How can I make it so that the start menu and everything goes from the first to the second screen that way I can close my laptop, cause if I close my laptop screen it disables the second screen also/

Acer Aspire V3-572g :: HDMI Ports Stops Working After Windows Updates

Jan 26, 2015

I have an Acer Aspire V3-572g. My laptop came with windows 8.1 installed already. Currently, my pc is being reset to factory settings because I can not figure out how to keep the hdmi from going out after windows updates. The only way I can keep get the hdmi port to work is the factory reset it. The only way from keeping the hdmi working is by turning off windows updater. However, I'd like to figure out how to keep the hdmi working without doing so. My graphics card is Nvidia 840 M. Here are a list of things I've done after my laptop stops recognizing the hdmi.
 
Uninstall and reinstall the display drivers, both from intel and Nvidia
Update the drivers to be up to date
Downloaded intel's utility manager to keep driver update to date
Downloaded factory installed drivers from Acer's website
Contacting microsoft and have them remotely connect to my laptop
Restored back my laptop to previous working conditions (although the hdmi never worked by going to a restore point)
Swapped hdmi cords and displays

After several hours of researching and trying different things I'm stumped. I bought this computer with the sole purpose of connecting it to a TV. I've also had this issue with another laptop which I returned. This problem isn't a hardware problem as I'm connected to the same monitor with an old desktop using the same cords. I'm guessing there is a compatability issue with windows and the display drivers when there is an update.

Dell XPS 15 :: Touchpad Left Button Only Work If Pressed 2 To 3 Times And Battery Failure Message

Mar 23, 2013

Using an XPS15. My left touchpad button has some problems. It seems to only work if it's pressed 2-3 times, or if you push it down hard...

Could this be related to any settings / firmware? - I think it's more likely that's it's probably failing and needs to be replaced?

I have a permanent battery failure message...

Acer Aspire 8940G :: BD Not Playing Blu-ray Disks

Oct 13, 2014

I have an Aspire 8940G I bought almost 5 years ago. I got it with an Optiarc BD-ROM BC-5500S. It worked fine for years but for the last 6 months, it won't play Bluray disks. It doesn't even seem to recognize that there is a disk in the drive if it is a bluray.
 
I have tried everything that I could find recommended to do but to no avail. It just makes that ba-DUM sound 3 times when I put a bluray disk in and then nothing.
 
I'm running windows 7 64-bit that I installed as soon as I got the machine. No major changes recently. I've tried MS Fixit, updating driver from sony (doesn't actually work, fails every time and I then have to reboot to get power back to the drive).
 
I'm thinking that the mechanism that works the laser for the bluray just stopped working and therefore it is not able to read bluray disks anymore.
 
My question then is can I get any another Optiarc BC-5500S and istall that? Or does it have to be one specifically made for an Aspire 8940G? Maybe I can got one for a Vaio or HP and then change the bezel to fit my aspire 8940G?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Fan Stops Working After Some Time

Jun 4, 2011

i ve got thinkpad t440s model  20AQ004VRT so it got europe only geforce  GT 730M video card. I've noticed that if i use it all day long( about 4-5 hours, maybe got something to do with sleep mode) fan stops spinning and notebook gets really hot under high loads. Fan starts working only after reboot. I've tried to use tpfancontrol but smart mode stopped detecting cpu tempreture and even somehow crushed battery life detection, so ive had to remove it.

Other than that, I've got gorilla glass bit extruded from the left side. I can push it but it keeps coming back to that position.And ive had fingerprint reader error - system could not find it after some time of use, but that problem resolved itself somehow, maybe after ive removed northon protection system...

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: WiFi Stops Working After A While

Feb 20, 2013

I own an Inspiron N5110, and dunno why, but the wireless stops working after a while. I had this problem in both windows 7 and ubuntu, and why this problem occurs. 

And when it stops, it really means STOP, cause it stops detecting networks, when usually there are like a dozen of these around, and no matter what i do, how many times i disable and re enable it, it never seems to work, until i restart my laptop.

In ubuntu, this problem occurs whenever i download large files, and in windows 7, whenever id start any virtual machine.

Acer :: 5920g Touchpad Stopped Working

Nov 17, 2008

about 2 months ago i bought an Acer 5920G, a week or so ago suddenly the touchpad stopped working, i dont recall how it happened, i think i just booted Windows Vista as i usually do and the touchpad didnt work when i tried to click my user name so i could enter my password to logon.

I thought maybe the driver had gone bad so i rebooted and booted Windows XP( on a different partition) and in windows xp the touchpad also didnt work anymore.

Is this a hardware failure? Or are there other possibilities? I tried removing the driver and reinstalling, but it still didnt work.

Just the normal mouse settings like pointer speed. I already downloaded the 2 driver which are on the acer support site: TouchPad_Synaptics_18.1.2.1_W81x64_A and TouchPad_ELANTECH_13.6.1.1_W81x64_A. I have installed boot of them sucesfully (there was the green pick).
 
Also for ur info there are no warning signes for unknown devices in the device manager.

Acer Aspire E15 :: Laptop Touchpad Not Working

Feb 11, 2015

How to get my Acer Aspire E15 laptop (E5-571P-55TL) touchpad working again?  It worked when I began using it in January and now does not, and I have been checking the FAQs and spent hours also looking for and downloading user guide info which did not work (maybe I did not EXTRACT it correctly).  The little mousepad or touchpad below the physical keyboard. 

I use Google Chrome, not Internet Explorer, by the way, and not the Microsoft Account login stuff, which is messing me up too, as first I had to create a password to login to my laptop,then apparently it wants me to create and use another password and login email, which apparently I did once after some problems with it,and now I cannot get it to let me login OR send me a forgotten password for Microsoft Account.  It wants to call me at a number whose last 2 digits displayed are not mine!

Acer Aspire V5 :: TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Jul 25, 2013

I first noticed the issue with sensitivity. The mouse was really sensitive. I then noticed that the gestures don't work either. I cannot scroll using the mouse. So I went into great depths and tried to figure out the problem (but no solution).
 
So I performed these steps:
-Changed the pointer speed to the fastest (I didn't like the slow pointer speed). The pointer was still pretty slow.
-Decided to change the TouchPad specific drivers. I go to the ELAN tab under mouse settings. I look and see that the "Options" button is greyed out. I also noticed that it said "Standard PS/2 Mouse"I decide to find the software to change the settings and located it in C:Program FilesElantech. I open ETDAniConf.exe and decide to do a test. I uncheck the right click and left click, and some other scroll settings. No avail.
-Then I decide to uninstall and install the drivers. Did that. Nothing changed. Changing the tapping, button, scrolling options does nothing. The mouse settings still shows it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse" even though the tab says ELAN.
-I decide to take a big step and just reinstall Windows 8 altogether using Acer Recovery. Reinstalled it, still facing the same issue. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2" mouse.
-I try another way to attempt to fix the issue. I try to find the most up to date similar driver. I located on that was much newer (2013 version rather than 08.2012). Installed it, restarted computer. Still no avail. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2 Mouse".I decided to go the last route before posting the issue here. I downloaded a copy of Windows 8 Pro from Microsoft website and transferred the ISO into the bootable flash drive. I split the hard drive into a clean partition (60GB) and installed fresh Windows 8 Pro on it, without all the Acer Drivers. Of couse I was missing the network drivers so I had to go on my Desktop to download the drivers online.
- I decide to first go and download the TouchPad drivers. Downloaded them, copied on a Flash Drive, ran them on the Acer laptop. Restarted computer. Still facing the issue. 

I got the laptop for a good discount from my work (as a bonus of working there). It was a one time discount. As you noticed, I mentioned that it was recognizing it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse". That is the huge clue that tells me that the drivers are really buggy. The issue here is that the TouchPad drivers are not recognized like it is a TouchPad, but as a Mouse. A mouse that can only do right click, left click.

Acer :: Touchpad Is Not Working In Aspire E5 511P7UX

Jan 12, 2015

My laptop is just 4 months old bt I am already having the problem in my touchpad. It is not working. I had Windows 7 on my laptop. The touchpad was working very well and smoothly but suddenly one day, it stopped working. I thought it happened because I was using Windows 7 so I installed Windows 8.1 hoping that everything would be okay but even during the Windows installation, I had to use keyboard commands. The touchpad didn't work at all. It is not working even after the Window has been completely installed. For an alternative, I am using an USB mouse. And, do not suggest me Fn + F7 because I am not that dumb to not to know that simple trick. My keypad is not working at all!

Acer :: Aspire V5 / TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Feb 27, 2015

I rarely use the laptop's touch pad and use a wireless USB mouse. I forgot my mouse and the touch pad wouldn't work when I started up laptop. Borrowed someone's wired USB mouse and it worked, so I ran to Walmart and picked up a $7 wired mouse.
 
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Elan > Unistall > Reboot = Touch pad now working.
 
But apparently the Elan didn't reinstall as I don't see it anymore in the Programs and Features list. I thought about downloading and installing the Elan drivers, but I don't want to "fix" something that isn't broken right now.
 
/edited to say *wireless* USB mouse

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Touchscreen Stops Working If USB Device Is Connected

Sep 25, 2013

First year, my Yoga's touchscreen was always working correctly, regardless of connected USB devices.
 
Since some time, if I connect a device into USB 2.0 port, touchscreen gets immediately disabled, no more responding to any touch. In Device Manager, it is not showing any errors. I found a workaround that in Device Manager (HID Devices branch), touchscreen must be set Disabled, then Enabled and then it comes back online. But I know this action was never needed before.

I think it began happening around the time when I started to use Yoga with barcode scanner Heron D-130. But the problem is now happening regadless of USB device, even with devices which were not impacting the touchscreen before. Perhaps not barcode scanner, but some Windows update caused this. Do you have any solution for this so touchscreen will keep working after another USB 2.0 device is connected?
