My parent's Acer Extensa 5630 touchpad is not working properly. The pad itself works fine, but the buttons don't. They have been working long ago, when the computer had Win XP, but a friend of theirs has installed Windows 7, so I am hoping that it is a software issue. I didn't see the machine since I was not close to their home. And they can't remember when it stopped working because they were using a mouse.
I have tried re-installing drivers, Alps and Synaptics, and none of that helped. I am afraid that it is a hardware problem. Is there a way to check?
