Hello, I have ACER Netbook. It's showing me TouchPad problem. The TouchPad isn't working properly. I checked inside my BIOS, OS and other Controlling Panels but found no defect. I think it's a hardware problem.
Is there any way to fix my TouchPad. One more problem is showing on Netbook. When i type on the keyboard, it starts writing automatically. I mean if i tap on the 'N' key it starts writing 'N' rapidly and continuously until i tap another key.
Please someone help me. I am having huge problem with these TouchPad and keyboard. My Netbook model is 'ACER Aspire D55'.
My Netbook’s Keyboard and TouchPad isn’t working
With your keyboard, maybe the rubber matting underneath it has already damaged and broken that is why the button just drops down and stick below because there is no more force from the rubber to push it up again.
I don’t know if there is an available replacement for the rubber matting of laptop’s keyboard but it will help if you let a technician examine your laptop. If I’m right about the damaged rubber matting, a temporary solution is possible using a tough adhesive to stick the damaged part.
But it’s only a temporary solution because it will wear out soon because of the hard texture of the applied adhesive.
About the touchpad, I think that’s the part that has a serious problem. It is attached to the laptop’s motherboard. I don’t know if it can be removed and replaced. Usually in desktop CPUs, when the broken device is attached directly to the motherboard, there’s no hope of repairing it instead the whole motherboard is replaced.
For best results, bring your unit to a qualified technician to see if it can still be fixed or not. But for the meantime, use a USB-type mouse as replacement for the touchpad.
