Hi recently my laptop Acer Aspireone model ZG5 lost alltogether the drivers of the Synaptic pointing device and so the mouse pad stopped to work. I've already tried to download the software and install it on my computer but the problem hasn't been fixed. Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance fabrizio

Restore to before it failed.

It looks from photos I have seen as though the pad has an on-off switch, my 9 series does. It should be top left of the pad.

Or top right on some Aspire series.

Try FN + F7 ??? This is the combination for turning trackpad on/off, I believe

Oops. Just re-read my post and realised I got it wrong. The mouse on/off button IS on the right, the (expletive) photo was the wrong way around! Doh!
