Hi,

Have you checked if the touchpad is listed under either Mice and Other Pointing Devices or just Other Devices in Device Manager? See if there is a listing for a USB touchpad controller.

Hi, Acer machines often have a key that turns off the touchpad. It is often a function key (Fn) and is often on the F7 key but could be anywhere. The symbol looks like a hand on a square with a small circle and diagonal. Make sure your touchpad is not turned off. The key is pressed once (along with the Fn key) to turn on and again to turn off.

I tried many times to use (fn) with f7 but still not working don't know whether I'm doing it wrong What must I do help me plz.

I use the pointer to access driver manager so it it's not functioning I cannot do that. No pointer= no browser, no file explorer, no nothing. It highlights but no action. And no hand on a square w/small circle and diagonal (is it the F8?) And how would I know if the touchpad is on or off? It's an ELAN pointer

Hi @ Barbara Dandfordhirsch,

Connect a USB mouse to the laptop and use it to navigate through to Device Manager etc etc

kaikho, Here is something you can try from forum below. Go to the Acer driver page for your computer. Download the Intel IO chip set drivers for Windows 8.1. Run the setup for the driver in "compatibility mode" and install. You will need to restart the computer. The computer will then recognize the track pad as a valid device. Then download and install the Synaptics (or Elan) driver for Win 10 from the Acer support page and restart. If the track pad is not immediately active on the restart, hit Function F7.

You can also check out the link for more info./trouble shooting ideas. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

I updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The touchpad was not listed in Device Manager. Went into bios, changed touchpad option from Advanced to Basic. Re-booted and works fine.

Turns out, installing windows 10 in Legacy BIOS is a bad idea if you like your touchpad.

I Reinstalled windows in UEFI and now it works fine :)

After trial and error numerous times with the win 8.1 drivers and all nonsense, I noticed that my bios didn't have the option to change touchpad setting from advanced to basic so obviously I needed to update my bios... Change setting and its that's
