Hi there, I own an Acer Aspire 6530 on windows 7 64bit ultimate. The problem is with the synaptics touch pad, it's stopped working and the times it does work it glitches all over the screen, i have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it to no avail. Nothing I do seems to work! Now .. when I plugged in a wireless mouse windows recognised it and downloaded the drivers but that does nothing at all ... I'm having to use the keypad and it's getting rather tiresome! Any help or suggestions would be appreciated ... Thankyou in advance :P

Could there be any conflict to the wireless mouse or is it a standalone problem for the touchpad itself?

Try the drivers from here http://www.kombitz.com/2009/01/11/synaptics-touchpad-driver-for-windows-7/

Also check the BIOS to ensure the laptop will recognise and use a USB mouse.

Are you sure the mouse has a good battery and is turned on?

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

Have you checked in Control Panel/Mouse to check that all settings are the way you want them?

Can you borrow a USB mouse from a friend to check that that works.
