Acer :: Aspire 5735Z- How Do I Permanently Disable The Touchpad
Apr 21, 2009
I have an Acer notebook, Aspire 5735Z. Each time I turn on my computer I have to disable the touch pad using Fn plus F7. This disable function is not permanent though. Is there a way to disable the touch pad permanently?
I am unable to find a way to disable tap to click on touchpad for Aspire v3-572. I don't see a tab for changing this setting in Mouse settings from Control Panel or anywhere else. I tried reinstalling the Synaptics driver from Acer Recovery Management but still no luck. This is not acceptable. Am I the only one having this problem?
It happends with Internet Explorer,Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome,when I post long messages in forums or blogs,or when I upload files in hosting websites like imageshack or megaupload,Firefox tells me that "The connection was reset"
In the other computer I have I can upload files without problems and I don't get errors,the two computers share the same net.
So I don't know why my notebook reacts like that when I try to upload files or write long posts in forum..is it only my notebook's problem or is it a Issue of the Acer Aspire 5735Z Notebooks,and how can I repair it?
A few days ago I bought an Acer Aspire 5542 (AMD Turion II X2 M500) with Windows 7 .
The software on the laptop is running very smoth because the Aspire 5542 is coming with Windows 7 64 bit.
The problem it's just one: the fan is a bit noise and is permanently ON(when the laptop is idle also ....)(the same situation like for Timeline Series)
Someone of you had the same laptop with the same problem?
Someone have a service manual for this new model(Aspire 5542)? Is it posible to buy one(service manual) from somewhere? I want to try to open the chassis to seen the fan, and to try to solve this problem....If someone already do it first please post some pictures!
I currently have the 5735z aspire. My problem lies with Acer not having any support for this notebook. I have been searching for anything to give a bios update. I have found the 5730 aspire is practically a mirror of my laptop except for the screen size.(5735z has a 15.6) I was curious if I could use the updates for the 5730 on mine. They both have gl40 chipset and the same cpu. I noticed the bios updates starts at 1.07 and goes up to 1.14.
Mine is currently 1.07. So my question is can I use the bios for the 5730?
Just purchased a 5735Z and I know it's not going to be the most powerful machine when it comes to games, but i've found its performance dismal in even some of the older games.
I've been playing quakelive a bit lately, but I can't run it past 800x600 without major lag, and fullscreen is unplayable even at 640x480. I installed Sims 2 just to test out an older game and that is running at about 15-20fps max at lowest detail.
I've tried updating the drivers, and I have the latest chipset and graphics ones. Do you think installing XP would help performance? Also what about using a 64bit operating system - is the T4200 a 64bit chip and would that help at all?
I want to disable the wireless lan from connecting to the internet every time I reboot the computer. It is driving me nuts with all the securutiy connections and I think it makes my laptop crash, because it is trying to do stuff.... Actually I have no idea, I just dont want to have to push the disable wireless lan connection every time I reboot.
I would like to push the button to connect to wireless lan if I so choose to do so.
In certain chatrooms the built in cam comes on automatically. I'd prefer to use a better external cam but I can't find an option in settings to switch to the external cam. It seems the internal cam comes on by default.
I've had a number of Acer laptops over the years, I've just bought the 8930G as a replacement to my desktop so that I can hide it from my 18 month old son when not in use.
For the most part, I am very very happy with it, it's display is awesome, both built in wireless and Bluetooth, and BD.
I have a few questions.
First off, sound when play BD and DVD's, you can barely hear the voice on any film, had to resort to using travel speakers whilst I was away as I could not hear any voice in any films in a small room. Yet normal sound is amazing, how can this be? Anyone had this problem and solved it?
Second, is there a way to make Bluetooth on permanently? It's a bit annoying having to turn it on all the time.
Wireless performance appears quite slow on my wireless g network.
There is a new BIOS version, 1.13, but it does not say what the changes are, anyone know?
I am considering adding a second hard drive to it to store movies and music, I am considering by a 500gb drive, can anyone recommend a drive?
I've just bought an Acer Aspire 5920G and the Crystal Eye webcam works perfect with MSN and so does the internal microphone. However, I've started hosting a show on an Internet radio and the sound quality from the internal mic is too low. Therefore I bought a microphone that I plugged in the appropriate jack on the laptop (next to the jack for the headphones) but when recording or broadcasting it seems that my laptop uses BOTH the external and the internal mic. Could anybody tell me how to DISABLE the internal mic and use the external instead?
I've tried to disable the Crystal Eye from the Device Manager on Windows Vista but that doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to modify the settings from the recording devices but the LineIn is not plugged in. I'd just like to plug a mic and use that instead of the webcam's one. Any help would be really appreciated as I have to host a show in 2 days and I don't have a clue on how to solve this problem.
I am simply trying to boot from a USB or the disc drive in an Aspire E1-510p-2671.
I have set the boot priorities correctly. I have turned SecureBoot off. I have turned on the F12 boot menu.
If I turn the machine on and let it do its own thing, it loads Windows 8. If I tape F12 to go to the boot menu so I can manually select something, my only options are Windows Boot Manager, or If I have network boot enabled, I get two network boot options.
I cannot change SATA mode off of AHCI, and I cannot change boot mode off of UEFI. I have scoured Google for this issue and it seems loads of people with Acer laptops cannot boot from anything other than their HDD. Changing the UEFI option has fixed it for everyone I have seen able to switch it, but I cannot switch it. What is going on? Why am I being blocked from booting from particular devices/ports? Makes no sense.
According to the solutions I found when I googled the problem, I should be able to disable edge swipe by simply updating the synaptics drivers and turning off "edge swipe" under synpatics settings. However, there is no such setting even with the latest drivers 17.xx
According to a link given as a solution to the same problem, this page was given as a link, and its the same solution I saw on google. [URL] .....
However, I do not have the option to turn it off under settings.
i recently got a new studio 1555, i wanted to disable my touchpad while using an external mouse so i use the feature in the touchpad properties that disables the touchpad
once an external pointing device is connected. The problem is, once i disconnect the mouse the touchpad does'nt turn on again, is that normal behavior? should'nt the touchpad come back to life once i disconnect my mouse.
I just bought an Acer computer, and am to the point where I am about to return it for a MAC because I cant turn off the tap to click feature. I have tried going through the control panel and messing with the mouse settings. I have tried to install the elantech driver as well as the synaptics driver. I can't get the drivers to actually work. I have contacted Microsoft and they are basically like "we don't know so go ask Acer."
I am trying to disable integrated video card,because it eat my ram. In BIOS (Inshyde) didn't enabled advenced menu On offical Acer site don't uploaded drivers for Windows 7 x64 and BIOS image (( Supports don't answer, just send me respond to email about acceptance my post.
While typing on a browser, my screen zooms in and out periodically, and I'm sure it's because I'm accidentally touching something. How do I disable this? I've tried going into mouse/touchpad settings but there isn't any option about changing the zoom.
How to quickly disable touchpad on HP ENVY 15t-j000?
I just got one of the newest Haswell notebook. With older HP laptop touch pads there is a spot at the upper left corner to disable the touchpad. With the latest Synaptic touchpad on the new ENVY 15t there is no keyboard or touchpad button to disable the touchpad when you are using a mouse.
how I disable the touch-pad on my Latitude E5400 so that I can use an external mouse. I have a bad habit of brusing my touchpad with my palm and move the line on which I am typing to one elsewhere in the document.
