I started my computer up yesterday and the touchpad was not working. It has nothing to do with the FN key either. Does this wear out after awhile? I've had my acer2025 since the summer of 2004. Any troubleshooting to check if it is just broken?
My Acer 5520 came with the touchpad set so sensitive that by just by passing over icons I am opening windows that I dont want to. My sisters older Acer also has an "Alps" touchpad with Alps driver and under the tapping tab in the mouse window she has a "touch sensitivity" button that adjusts from light----to-----heavy touch and thats all I need.
After checking various computer stores that carry Acer and other brands it seems that some have this feature and some dont. Annoyingly also is the fact that no-one in the sales dept in these stores knows what I'm talking about and when I show them they say it's the first time they've encountered it. Surely if I'm spending over $1000. for a new notebook I should be able to control this. I have tried updating the driver from the Acer websight. Both the Synaptics and Alps drivers they offer don't have this control either. Some Acers however have it and they are not necessarily the upscale or newest models. So what gives?
I recently purchased an aspire 1 netbook and Ive had an intermittten problem with the touchpad. It encounters an error and the box do I want to send error or dont send pops up but the touchpad is unresponsive. I have presssed fn and f7 which disables touchpad then I enable it again but this doesnt recitfy the problem. Only rebooting computer does.
I sorted my 5315's battery problem (it was the AC adapter), only to find that now the touchpad is quite unresponsive. It won't move smoothly, constantly stopping and starting.
I've played with all the settings I can find, and installed the latest Synaptics XP driver, but Windows seems to see it as a "PS/2 port pointing device" - the laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port, so this is obviously incorrect.
I have an Acer 5100 and the touch pad has died ( including all the buttons ). Was perfect one day , turned it on the next day and it was dead. I'm surviving on an old IBM mouse plugged into USB port at present.
Have checked the mouse properties and it says it is working properly ( which it obviously isn't ) . Have uninstalled and re-installed including checking for latest driver on line . The mouse properties still tell me everything is working properly .
My Acer Aspire One, which I love, does one thing that drives me NUTS! The touchpad, mainly noticed in games (FPS are the most detectable), doesn't respond while pressing keys... IE, I press "W" to run forward, and the touchpad doesn't work simultaniously... I can run, or look around, but not both at the same time... why is that? No other touchpad in a laptop I've ever used had the limitaion? And, when using an external mouse, the mouse works great, meaning I can move around pressing keys on the keyboard all while looking around. It just gets annoying having to stop, look around, then move, stop, look around, move, etc.
Is this a driver problem or a hardware problem? Even the EEE Pc that I use to have didn't do this, so why the new Acer? Curious, and no idea how to fix it.... Maybe it's even a setting somewhere I'm unaware of...
Basic issue is that all of a sudden the touchpad has stopped working and that little icon that was in the systray has dissapeared. it was working fine a few weeks ago. i currently am using a USB mouse, but i need the touchpad at uni as the desk space is very limited. its a shame this issue has came up now a day before a MAJOR assesment is due, and i cant finnish it because i cant use the mouse at uni.
Anyways, so i have tried the FN+F7 thing, doesnt work. Tried Re installing and rebooting the drivers, still doesnt work. tried a system restore to when it was working. still doesnt work i have basically tried EVERYTHING mentioned on various forums and on google. nothing seems to work. the drivers appear to be installed but wont work for some reason. i will attach photos to the main options so you can see how it appears to me.
there are no bios otpions i looked for those. seriously its so weird, nothing works and its very frustrating! in the past few weeks i have installed adobe illustrator CS3, dont know if that could be the reason for it not working, but i dont think so. I have windows XP SP2. when i try installing the original drivers off a backup cd my dad made, it just installs and does nothing. i downloaded the newest drivers from the website and still the same thing. the program does appear in the program files, and the control panel/add remove, but just doesnt seem to run!
I really want a middle click and just more options in general but there seems to be no way. i called up tech support and the guy told me i have a generic mousepad and there was no on other mouse options besides the basic ones in mouse properties.
Today i bought the new Acer 8930G with the Touchpad on the left of the keyboard. The touchpad works great, i can stop tracks, skip tracks and mute. But i cant control the loadness of the sound. The touchpad gives a reaction (the LED lights when i touch the sound-regulator), but the software doesnt recognize it. The sound just stays the same!
I deinstalled a lot of software, maybie i got the wrong one and there's a conflict now or something?
If i cant bring that to work, i'd like to be able to make regulate the sound via keyboard (a button to make it bit louder and a button to make it a bit less louder), how can i do that?
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.
i have an acer aspire 5335 and the touch pad aint working i have not installed anything new or used a mouse or anything i have even restored back to factory settings and i cant seem to install the drivers i have downloaded them from acer offical site but they aint working. i cant even open the synapsis to even do any test or anything and i have tried the fn+f7 and that is not doing anything.
I have an Acer Aspire 5630 and since 2 weeks i'm having problems with the touchpad and the keyboard. I tried reinstalling Windows Vista which didn't work. Then i tried windows 7 and it also has the same problem( also tried new drivers etc) . With an extern keyboard and mouse it is able to use te laptop.
fn+ f7 doenst work. (because de keyboard doenst work )
The strange part is that when i acces the bios, de keyboard works.
The laptop just does not work with the battery in. It will boot up but the keyboard and touchpad do not work. Taking out the battery works fine...but my question is, will I ever be able to use the computer with a battery in it? Do I need a new battery? Or is my laptop forever a battery-less one?
I can't seem to load the Touchpad Software fot the Acer 5630 Laptop ? Do I use the Alps or the Synaptics Software ? When I load the Alps I get pop-ups on startup that don't go away asking me if I want to start Apoint.exe and other files. I uncheck the pop-up but it still keeps coming back ? When the computer fully loads and I right mouse click on the Touchpad Icon in the right bottom tray it shows up like regular mouse software. It used to have an area asking me if I want to shut the touchpad. Not anymore. As for the Synaptics Software if fails when I try to load it. Do you have a solution to this problem ? I do use a USB Mouse and never use the Touchpad.
Is there some way to quickly change the configuration of the touchpad? My wife and I use the same computer but don't like each others setup. I would be nice if there were some way to easily switch from one configuration to the other.
My touchpad broke days after I got the laptop, I go to Acers site for drivers and then when I download them I get told they have errors. I cant click or scroll with the buttins either, it is utterly useless and I am having to use a terrible USB ball mouse.
Under control panel: mouse properties tab hardware, there is no mouse shown. The same with device manager, there is no mouse listed. Changing mouse settings has no effect. There is still no mouse pointer, even though I can see it move when I hover over icons, I can click, and I can locate the pointer when I press ctrl (radar symbol). As soon as I plug in an external mouse, the mouse point appears, a mouse appears under mouse properties hardware, and I can move the pointer via touch pad also.
With this process able to work with touch pad in Windows 8.1. Another problem observerd that the TP behaving abnormally. It stop sometimes and sometimes move. Checked with Windows 7 , found to be working fine
2 days ago I bought a acer notebook. The touchpad is working but not the gestures. If i go to the "mouse settings", there are no specific settings for my touchpad. Just the normal mouse settings like pointer speed. I already downloaded the 2 driver which are on the acer support site: TouchPad_Synaptics_126.96.36.199_W81x64_A and TouchPad_ELANTECH_188.8.131.52_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.
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?
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!
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.
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!
I bought a new Acer Aspire E5-521-65BL and I'm having problems using the touchpad. It is switched on, but it isn't working very well. When I look in the device manager, I see HID-mouse twice, but I can't see a touchpad installed. I tried to download and install the synatics driver from the acer website, but I only get a message that the driver is up to date.
