A. Could my DC adaptor cause freezing to my touchpad?

B. How much could it cost a replacement?

Thanx!

I think your screen would go on and off more than the touchpad. Try updating it
Acer Support Europe
I assume it's an Acer Aspire 5100

You might need to download the appropriate driver from ACER support site.
Remember to uninstall the driver that is not working first. If you have recently
upgraded the os or performed any os updates you may need to re-install the
driver too. Or even an updated driver may be needed.

Do you have or ever had an external PS/2 mouse connected to your laptop?
Disconnect it if it is connected and reboot. Sometimes even if you do not
have it connected the driver for it is still installed and can conflict with your
touchpad. Try uninstalling the PS/2 mouse driver from the os and reboot.

Question is it not working at all or just some of the functions are not?

DC power will not cause that to happen.

Thanks

The driver I 've downloaded was from Acer website - and first I ve unloaded the previous version.
I have formatted my laptop for maitenance in April 08, and still had problems, and downloaded last version of drivers.
I also tried to remove software completely from DevManager and rebooted; It installed without problems, it said.
Also, when I unplug the adaptor, touchpad works perfectly fine.
And no problem with working with both touchpad/external mouse either :thumbsup: (Also my external mouse (microsoft Optical 3000) hasnt the software or the drivers on it - only the installation via USB)

But when I have it on power, it freezes, stucks, and cannot move. I can click and scroll though only the icon indicates it.

Its very complicated :flowers:

Wish I had your problem. Im trying to disable my mouse track pad on my Gateway ML 3109 which I believe is also now made by Acer. Maybe we should switch computers!!! Wish mine wouldn't work, then I could type something without the letters going all over the document.

Good Luck. Sounds like a hardware disconnection to me.

You might try looking in the BIOS to see if there's an option to turn it off
