The Synaptics Touchpad in Acer Aspire One does not not after the installation of the wireless mouse.

After you install a HD on my Acer Aspire One wireless mouse, the Synaptics Touchpad works not at all even if feataure troubleshooting indicates it works correctly.  Default is always to the wireless mouse. I tried to deavtivating the wireless mouse and reset to factory manufacturer.  This does not re-enable the Touchpad.

Try Fn + F7. This option turns the touchpad on and outside.

  • Built in mic on acer aspire one does not

    The microphone on my acer aspire one netbook does not work. I am running windows XP on the netbook and had this problem once before some time back, but can't remember what the person tech told me to uninstall that does the job all of a sudden again. I use also the audio if it helps Realtek HD. I tried several times to update the drivers and reinstall the software from the acer site, it does not work... any suggestions?


    Thank you for your message.

    I see that you are facing problems with the built-in microphone.

    Let's not worry! I'm here to help.

    Quick questions:

    1. what exactly happens when you use the built-in microphone? You receive an error message?

    2. What is the status of the device in Device Manager?

    Check out this link to learn more about device manager:

    By using Device Manager

    Let's try the following and check:

    (a) right click on the "speaker" icon located on the bottom right corner the screen of the taskbar.

    (b) click on sounds, click on the recording tab.

    (c) click Microphone, and then click Properties. (Note to make sure that this work appears under Microphone. If the job does not appear, click on Microphoneand then click set as default.)

    (d) in the Properties of the Microphone dialog box, click the custom tab.

    (e) select or clear the check box Amp Microphone .

    (f) click the levels tab.

    (g) set the slider for the volume to the desired level, and then click OK.

    Troubleshoot camera connection

    Vista references apply to Windows 7.

    You probably need to recharge the device drivers and any software control of the 'IF' camera, there is
    everything for Windows 7.

    Login as an administrator.

    Double-click Control Panel / Device Manager - Imaging - writing down of the brand and model of camera.
    on this subject and on the tab of the driver is version. Now, click on update drivers (who are unable to do anything as MS
    is far behind the pilots of certification). RIGHT click on the camera - UNINSTALL - REBOOT - it
    will update the driver stack.

    Now, go to the system manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for the camera and the other related camera
    software (if not more recent get the same).

    Download - SAVE - go to them and RIGHT CLICK - RUN AS ADMIN - reboot after each driver.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    Installation and update of drivers to 7 (update drivers manually using the methods above is preferred
    to make sure that the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system and device manufacturers are located)

    Then let windows updates on however prevent loading of drivers who are often older than the
    those that you have installed. If updates suggests a pilot and then HIDE it and watch manually to see if their
    really is a more recent version (at the time system manufacturer and the sites of the manufacturer of the device).

    Hi @decyferme,

    It's a great place to find answers and suggestions!

    You have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to draw your attention to the Guide of the HP Forums.

    Learn how to post and more

    How can I find my model number or product number?

    I understand that you had a problem with the touchpad for months because it is not responding. Although the driver is listed in programs and features in the Device Manager is not listed.

    Have you checked for virus and malware?

    Have you done all Windows updates?

    Have you tried to run the troubleshooter in Windows?

    Did you run HP Support Assistant to facilitate updates of HP?

    First you would try this step.  Some models, you can enable or disable the touchpad by double clicking on the top left corner of the touch pad.  Please see if it is applicable for you.

    Then in Device Manager, view hidden devices and search the hardware changes see if the touchpad now will be seen.

    Here is a link to the HP laptops - use and troubleshooting of the TouchPad and ClickPad (Windows 8) that should help you too.

  • My Acer Aspire R14 does not start with the cord of the charger plugged in with the battery connected to

    A few weeks ago, my laptop Acer Aspire R14 went totally blank. When I unplugged the power cord, it started right to the top, but at the moment where I plugged the power cord back inside would be closed. The battery dies quickly in this way, because it would not charge. I removed the battery then it started upward with the power cord. I thought it must be the battery, so I installed a new battery. which is not to change the problem.

    So, I ordered a new motherboard and after a few weeks, I received it today, installed, and I have always the same thing. It works well with the power cord plugged in until the battery is disconnected. But at the time wherever I connect the battery, everything stops, not to be revived unless I disconnect the battery.

    I need help! What could be the problem?

    Glad I could help.

    Hi Markprentice,

    ·         Since when are you facing this problem?

    ·         Remember to make changes to the system?

    ·         Have you defined a plan of power on laptop?

    I recommend you perform the clean boot.

    Put your boot system helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: After troubleshooting, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the above article.

  • Acer Aspire 5515 does not start

    Well, I have a 5515 Acer Aspire running Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. It hasent been working lately (VISTA USUALLY START!). I have no idea what my BIOS password. In any case, I have a never used Windows Vista Ultimate not copy to level. Can I pop in my computer and without starting Vista, (re) install vista? PLEASE HELP ME! I'VE BEEN WITHOUT A COMPUTER FOR A MONTH! I HAD TO WRITE THIS ON MY IPHONE!

    If you have problems with BIOS password, you will need to contact Acer at the link above.


    You can't get in your version of Vista has to do an upgrade, you need a license Ultimate FULL Vista to do a clean install, not an ultimate upgrade license.

    BUT you cannot change boot order if you have BIOS password problems.
    Contact Acer is the solution.

  • Touchpad HP Pavilion 17 works does not after using an external wireless mouse

    I have the HP Pavilion 17 laptop.  It is running Windows 8.1.  Everything worked fine until I used an external wireless mouse.  After unplugging the mouse the touchpad does not itself again.  I have therefore no pointer and no touchpad to use unless I have keep the external mouse not connected.  I tried the hard reset with the plug of the battery, unplugging, pressing the power button for 15 seconds and turning everything back on.  Still no work touchpad.  Had this happen last week and called HP because I only had the laptop for 3 days at this time here.  They had me do a system restore to an earlier point.  At this point, everything worked again and I toilet problem has been resolved.  This is why I used the external mouse always thinking that it wouldn't be a problem.  I was wrong.

    Also, I've seen other posts on a different notebook that has a toggle power button in the upper left corner of the touchpad to activate/disengage, but this was not one of these.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  My next step is to call HP again tomorrow and see if someone else has another solution.  I would obviously like the ability to use the touch pad or external mouse at any time without having to restart and go through all these other problems.  Otherwise, this phone pretty may be going back to the store this weekend.  :-)

    Thank you!!

    This fixed the problem! Thank you very much!! Seriously, 3 different phone calls to HP and not one of them ever talked about this easy solution!

    My first question; why don t you use the recovery CD?
    My second question: WinXP Pro contains SP2?

    Hey dude, or you have installed the fake software, drivers or / and updates are missing.

    First install all updates from Microsoft and secondly if you install divers manually do not forget that you do it in the right order!
    Did you check the Toshiba driver page exactly? You will find installation instructions. Have you followed this guide line?

    I thik you know now what to do.

    I advise you to put your PC with [Alt] + [F10] and perform the updates. Using "Back to Windows 7", you lose a lot of applications and have a few problems.
