Hi...um 3rd post here I think.

There seems to be a new delay on the Acer Aspire 5532's track pad and it's keyboard.

I can't use the keyboard and the mouse at the same time. Is there some way to change the settings so that this problem can be fixed.

Check the mouse settings dialog for a link to your touchpad settings, which may or may not be a Synaptics Touchpad. In there, there should be settings for whatever you're looking for.

I did that, and I can't seem to find the setting for that.

Hey there. I have the aspire timeline 5800TZ, which I think uses the same bios and such. I had the same problem with the trackpad so I tried upgrading to windows 7 and all that did was make the menus flash sporadically as the trackpad glitched and picked up responses that didn't actually exist. After waiting on hold for an hour or so, the Acer rep told me to reset the laptop to factory defaults. Once I did that everything worked fine. Of course it went back to Vista, but I guess it was worth the trade off. It might be worth a try if you backup your data first.

Hi, hope someone here can help me. I've got an Acer Aspire 5100 and 2 nights ago i was using it and all was well. Fell asleep while watching a movie on it and it blocked 2 hours after i fell asleep more or less. Thought nothing of it, turned it off and rebooted it. Got a CMOS error that I've had a few times before so unplugged it, took battery out and plugged it back in again. When it started up, both keyboard and touchpad are dead. When i get to the windows log-in screen, sometimes the FN + F6 combination works but that's all. I've took it to a friend who is a PC Repair guy and he says all cables are firmly connected, no problem there. Anyone have this problem ever? I don't know if I need a new keyboard or what to do. I rang Acer and they want the recipt but as it was a present from my exgirlfriend, i don't have it. My mate says maybe i leaned on the keyboard while sleeping and had some keys held down for a prolongued time and the CMOS or BIOS has locked the keyboard and touchpad and that maybe resetting the CMOS/BIOS by jumper or removing the battery will unlock them... Any suggestions anyone?? Really hope i can repair it cheaply as it is the only pc i have!!
