...maybe the touchpad has been disabled or turned off - although device manager detects it as working OK ? You have not mentioned whether you have tried to turn it on or off - it has to be turnrd off - manually or automatically - if you are using an external mouse.
Greetings. I have an Acer 2312 laptop running WXP. The cursor can not be moved by the touchpad. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the touchpad and its drivers several times wih no success. Device manager tells me everything is just fine. The cursor responds normally to my wireless mouse so I can live without the touchpad but I don't feel comfortable when something malfunctions; particularly when I don't know what caused the glitch.I have searched the sites of Acer and Symantic and found no useful information.If anyone has a clue on what the solution Is I wouldmuch appreciate hearing from you. stewart
