The touchpad on my Acer laptop isn’t working. When I plug in a standard mouse, that does work. Is my touchpad dead?

remove the battery, unplug from the wall, hold the on button for 2 minutes, reinsert battery and reboot windows
Hello, First thing you should check, is to see if your touchpad is activated? Most times for acer laptops you have to press following keys together:
Have you checked in device manager to see if the touchpad appears there and/or there are any problems with drivers and stuff? Have you check if touchpad is enabled in device manager? If there is/are any problems, you will see an exclamation mark next to it and some yellow or red warning. If you want to check, you can do the following:
-- log in with an administrator account
-- click on windows key + Pause/Break key at same time
-- click on device manager
-- scroll down to mice and other pointing devices
-- click on the + sign to expand it
-- highlight on entry and then right click
-- select properties and check under general tab for any problems. If there is any problem it should tell you so in the box at bottom. If there is a code, make sure to record it and then research it or post it here.
-- on menu, click on the driver tab
-- select update drivers and if there is any, make sure to update it
-- close device manager and then restart computer
-- try to see if it works
-- if it doesn't, follow the same steps and instead of selected update drivers, select uninstall and restart computer
-- if you are running windows 7, it will install a generic driver
-- see if it works
Is there any software like Alps or synaptics installed? Make sure software is up to date, if not just download the most recent version.
That solved my problem thank you so much!
Hello, I am glad your problem is solved. If you have any more questions, you know where to come and ask them.
