Hello,i've just replaced the motherboard of an acer aspire 3000 series laptop the touchpad now fails to work after much searching it comes down to the fact that i need to reinstall the generic windows xp touchpad driver which i can find nowhere so far. after so doing apparently u can then load the synaptics touchpad software and all should be well. is this right or am i barking (mad) up the wrong tree regards ian

Have you checked the device manager if there is a hardware that needs drivers? Does it show the touchpad under pointing devices?

It could be that you did no connect the cable correctly.

have you tried Safe Mode to see if either mouse is working.

also check in Safe Mode if any Pointing Devices are listed. If so delete them.
