I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I bought an Acer Aspire E5-511, but I have problem with touchpad and Windows 8.1.The touchpad (Synaptics) is not working with Windows 8.1 x64, but it works fine with Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8 x64.When I install Windows 8.1 and have to choose? language to install? I can?t choose anything with the touchpad. I should plug in my mouse to continue. I doesn?t work even when it?s fully installed and with latest driver (available only for win 8.1 x64) from Acer?s website. I tried with an older driver, but had no success. I updated BIOS, but it doesn?t work again. In hardware IDS in device manager it shows HID\? not ACPI\? (like win 7/8). Fn+F7 doesn?t help.When I try to install Windows7/8 the touchpad is working properly at the beginning (I can choose ?language to install?, ?Time and currency format?? and the touchpad works after install even without driver).

Hi

i've got a problem with my touchpad on Acer Aspire 3690, couple days ago it completely quit working, touchpad + the left and rigth keys on it and the scroll key.
When I looked into device manager I saw the exclamation mark beside the SCSI/RAID host Controller. I tried to update or something with that driver with wizard but no result, and also as I turn my laptop on, that wizard turns on and offers me to install it, but at the end it not finds any driver. I re-installed the Synaptic but it didn't help.

Thanx for help in advance. Any suggestion will be appreciated

I have a month old Acer Aspire E 15 laptop. Its touchpad is very hard and for normal touch it just keeps roaming picking up cells. It can only be stopped by taking off the finger and then carefully taking cursor to an empty cell and press hard to click so the several picked up cells get released and I can work further. I tried Fn+F7 suggested by a forum member but it acts only an On/Off switch for the touchpad. Press Fn+F7 and it goes off, press again it comes back. But the hardness remains. A click with the touchpad means press the touchpad hard till it literally 'clicks'. Looks like the machine will be usable only with a mouse. Before I had a Lenovo and never faced any such problem. Anyone faced such a problem?And any solutions?

After updating to Windows 10 some months ago I've got some troubles with my Synaptic touchpad. Generally it's become less sensible so that I need to to tap more than one time and harder to select something. And when I've worked on my Acer Aspire 7745G for a long time the touchpad simply stop working, and the only thing that can make it work again is restarting the pc! A smaller annoying thing is that when drawing a line using the touchpad, moving a tiny bit too fast can make it accelerate out of my control. Hyper-sensibility one could call it! The problems occurs both when using the latest driver from Acer.com Synaptics 14.0.6.0, 2010/04/12, and the one installed automatically with Windows 10, Synaptics 19.0.9.4., 2015/07/14.

I love this forum and have found a ton of useful information but this is my first time posting.

So I have an Acer Aspire ES1-512-P18H laptop that came stock with Windows 10. I deleted the partition and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 in legacy mode with a USB flash drive. I then installed most of my drivers and noticed that the scroll function on the keypad was not working.

I went to Acer Aspire ES1-512 Drivers Download for Windows 10, 8.1, 7, Vista, XP and downloaded the "Mouse and Touchpad Driver" which is an Elantech driver. No luck.

I then uninstalled said driver and downloaded the Synaptics "Windows 8/7/XP/Vista 64/32-bit Edition v17.0.19" driver from Software Drivers | White Papers | Videos | Synaptics. Again, no luck.

I did some more research and found this article Solved: Aspire e15 (e5-511-p9y3) Touchpad not working on w... - Acer Community - 277578 and attempted to install Windows 7 in UEFI mode with Secure Boot off.

I then did some more research and found this to be a common problem when installing Windows 7 on systems made for win8/10 using UEFI.

After trying 20+ drivers from ALPS, Synaptics and ElanTech I have found the solution! Download this cabinet file

This worked for the ETD050A touchpad used in my Acer Aspire ES1-512-P18H with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed via USB stick in Legacy mode.

Hope this helps anyone else with the same problem when downgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 7.

Hi, I'm running Windows 10 on a Acer Aspire S7-392-6832 laptop. Lately I've been getting jealous of my Macbook friends because of the four-finger swipe that quickly switches the last two open windows (effectively the same as Alt-Tab on my laptop) However, I was wondering why my laptop is not concidered to have a "Windows Precision Touchpad". The drivers that I use (ELANtech - the main driver, and Synaptics) allows for 3 or 4 finger gestures, so surely my expensive 2013 ultrabook laptop has a touchpad that is good enough. Does anyone know how to make the touchpad show up as a "precision" model so I can use the useful gestures (that includes the app-switching in OS X)?  I've tried reinstalling the Synaptics and ELANtech drivers and messing with some other options but that did not work for me.  Thank you.

Laptop is an Acer Aspire 4730z with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, fully updated to current.

I installed an update to Avast's engine, and after rebooting, when I got to the Windows logon screen, both the mouse buttons on both the built-in Synaptics touchpad and an external USB mouse will only select an item, but nothing else happens. In other words, if I click on a user account, it selects it but it doesn't allow me to enter a password. Likewise, if I click on the shutdown icon at the lower right of the screen, it just selects it but nothing else happens.

But, I found that if I hit the tab key and then the enter key to select something on this screen, then the left mouse button starts working again on the touchpad and the USB mouse..

When I get into windows, the left mouse button on both the built-in touchpad and the external mouse continue to work, but the right mouse button on the built-in touchpad doesn't work. However, the right mouse button on the USB mouse works.

I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this:
- uninstalled Avast (I'm now using MSE as the anti-virus on this machine)
- uninstalled and re-installed the drivers for both mouse devices multiple times, using different versions (for the touchpad, one set of drivers from Acer, another set from Synaptics)

For the past few months, the right touchpad button does not work with the Windows 10 drivers. Windows 8.1 drivers worked fine. If I switch mouse settings to left handed, then the buttons work fine, but obviously this is awkward to get used to. I have rollbacked the driver to a very old edition and it worked fine, however then I had no synaptics touchpad settings so the touchpad settings could not be altered.

Something weird happened. It would not work no matter what I tried. I was watching a movie on KODI formerly XBMC. I accidently touched the Keypad and the Mouse moved. I pressed the Video button and it lit up. Only thing that I can figure out is that it took several hours for the driver update to work or that the Video triggered the Touchpad. I had uninstalled and deleted every instance of the driver including the Backup System Reserved created by a MS Tech, when my Windows Ultimate became corrupted. Initialy it had Win-7 Home Premium and when it would not install IE10 at the time MS gave me a free upgrade to Ultimate.Even then it took a week to finally get IE10 installed because the Computer Lacked Service pack1. Kudos to the MS Techs, they called me numerous times and worked on my computer. The spoke excellent English and are based in India. Laptop was out of warranty and Acer pretty much said tough luck, you gotta pay. MS did not charge me one cent.

Just ruled out malware in other section of this forum. Laptop's integrated keyboard suffers intermittent lock-ups for no apparent reason (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, right now, doesn't). Touchpad seems deactivated (tried FN + F7 in case of accidental disable, but that's not the case), every option related to touchpad are grayed out in 'mouse' menu (config panel). Before malware check-up,tried system restore to last week, all problems were still there, so I reverted back. I have to use visual keyboard to type. Have to work with external mouse because touchpad doesn't work. Tried reinstalling touchpad drivers from Acer website, and didn't work. Computer worked perfect a few days ago.

Sounds like you may have some system files corrupt. This can occur after a lot of spyware. Some times just removing it dose not correct what it has already messed up. Your best maybe to back up your personal stuff. Then do a factory reinstall.

I just had to replace the top cover, including touchpad, on an Acer 5741 running Windows 7 64 Home Premium. The cover appears identical to the old one, and everything works, but the symantics touchpad software doesn't recognize the touchpad as a touchpad; it shows as a "wheel mouse on PS/2 port". Therefore, I can't turn off the incredibly annoying "tap to click" function. The option to disable tap to click is grayed out... it appears that's because the touch pad is seen as a "mouse" not a touch pad, as it was before.

When no drivers are installed, Device Manager just sees it as a PS2 Mouse. When drivers are installed, Device Manager sees it as Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad.

Acer identifies three manufacturers of touchpads on the 5741 on its support website. I have tried all three; ALPS, Synaptics, and Elan; the Synaptics drivers install and work as above; ALPs installs but doesn't provide any control, and Elan doesn't even install.

At the recommendation of the vendor of the laptop cover, I tried a site called "magicdriver" to help identify the hardware, since Windows apparently does that based on the drivers. It does appear to be a synaptic touchpad based on "hardware ID" under properties, details, via device manager.

The OS is entirely up to date. I have tried the latest Synaptics drivers, I have tried using the original driver version that came with the laptop, and I have tried a couple of versions in be... Read more

A:Synaptic touchpad can't kill "Tap to Click" - Acer Aspire 5741

I determined that the touchpad in the replacement top cover was from Elantech. Even when deleting the Synaptics drivers under "uninstall programs" and deleting the driver in device manager along with the "PS/2 mouse" the device ID code implies that the hardware manufacturer is Synaptics. I downloaded the "Acer" versions of all three manufacturers' drivers from the Acer support page, then extracted them all to separate directories. I then installed and uninstalled them all. The key was to use "Update Driver" from within Device Manager to get them to properly install. That was hours of my life I'll never get back!

I have an Acer Aspire V5-573PG-7400. The touchpad randomly developed a problem today along with the keyboard. Weirdly, whenever I move 1 finger across the touchpad, it would zoom in and out instead of moving the cursor. It will do this half the time. The other half of the time, it will move the cursor but is very unresponsive. I also noticed that my keyboard stopped working whenever I try to type something. Oddly, I am able to type again after I press the "Ctrl" key. My Synaptics Touchpad driver was 19.0.13.0. I went onto Acer's drivers website and the latest Synaptics touchpad driver on there is 19.0.9.4. I downloaded and installed it and now there isn't any issues. Anybody have an idea on what happened or if it was a driver problem? Keep in mind that i've been using the 19.0.13.0 driver for awhile with no problems and the problem just appeared today.

Hi

Just installed windows 7 64bit and reinstalled all the original drivers (Some of which needed updating online due to the switch to 64bit) and everything seems to working perfectly, except the Touchpad. At the moment I'm using a normal mouse but I take the laptop out alot so the touch pad's funtionality is pretty important.

Hope someone out there can help me

P.S

I went to the Acer website and downloaded the reccomended driver but when i tried intslling it, it said it could not find the OS Specific startup program...

A:Acer 8930G Touchpad Problem

Hey.


I had the same problem on an Acer 8930G after installing W7 32bit. The Acer drivers didn't solve the problem. The manufacturer of the touchpad is Synaptics. I downloaded the driver from their site Drivers | Synaptics. That solved the problem.

Good luck

Just got my new Acer Chromebook R11 today, and I've noticed that the touchpad only works when its in tablet mode, which is super counterproductive since I would only need to use it in laptop mode, which I can't. Also the screen can't rotate at all, no matter what I do.. Anyone know how to fix these two problems? edit: nevermind, it just suddenly started working

You can try to download image.dll here: http://www.down-dll.com/index.php?file-download=image.dll
and uncompress it in your folder c:\windows\system32

Umm well where to start. I have a acer aspire one AOA-150. Intel atom processor n270. 1 gb of ram with 120gb harddrive. Well here's my problem one night i was surfin the net and for some reason it was working really slow. So i decided to turn it off. Next day i turn it on and get a stop error. From research and i found out i could do the e-recovery. But after it finishes the recovery i get the same error. So my question is, is it possible that my e-recovery was corrupted? And if so could i reinstall another e-recovery?
Thanks to any one that can help me on this problem.

A:Acer Aspire One problem

How old is the 120 GB hard drive? Brand?
When a laptop begins running very slowly, it is good to test the drive and memory, then run spyware and software removal tools.
Since you cannot do the infestations, can you put it into a desktop computer as a slave and run the removal tools there?,

Hi Guys, hope you are all doing well. My Sister has an Acer Aspire Desktop, and the other day it locked-up. She tried to end program but a Windows security alert popped up about a Virus trying to direct her to some Malware program. After she went there, (not knowing better) she then tried to Reboot and reset her User Account Password, but now it wont accept any Password. I tried myself, it goes directly to User Account Password, but when i enter every Password she's used, it keeps saying incorrect Password. I can't get passed this... Oh..BTW she doesn't have a Password Back-up on another Disc. Hope you can help me with this.. Thanks very much!

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.
