Touch pad not working on my Acer 5738z

Hello,
Help my Acer aspire 5738z mouse touch pad has stopped working and the laptop is in use all the time (3 kids etc...). Also in trying to find a solution I appear to have frozen/locked the keyboard. Has anyone any ideas as to fix this problem.

  1. Hi :)

    The touchpad can be turned off .... read the manual to find out which keys...or use a USB mouse..

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I did check out the manual and tried restoring to a previous date but to no effect. In the end I tried a suggestion from a work colleague which worked (I don't know why, but it worked) :- Removed battery / unplugged power supply / pressed the turn on button and held down for 30-45secs / re-fitted battery / connected power supply and re-started the laptop.
    Back to normal!
