How difficult is it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who has an Acer laptop which he tells me the touch pad is not working.

He is going to try and get warranty to look at it,

but he asked if it is difficult to find a replacement and install the replacement pad confused.gif

I have no experience with laptops, so I put the question to the OCN family grouphug.gif

There's a button on the keyboard to disable/enable it?

Could he have pressed it?

Don't know about the Acer but google is your friend. I had a similar issue with my Asus 1215b and after googling found that it was a very simple fix. I'm talking it took me all of 3 minutes to fix it myself. Turns out it was a very minor assembly flaw that was causing erratic behavior. I mean it could be as simple as the ribbon cable being loose. You'll never know until you crack that baby open and take a look.
