Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook ?

"Tapping" has dissapeared from Mouse section in Control Panel

\015 I've had an Acer Aspire 5520-5908 for close to two years now and I'm now experience problems with my touch pad. I'm highly aware that it's extremely sensitive (which leads to the cursor randomly jumping) and the solution to that is the "tapping" section under the Mouse tab in control panel. My problem is that "Tapping" seems to have somehow dissapeared on my computer entirely. Is there something I can download to get this back or something I'm missing?\015

Answers :

Ok, im not sure how into the settings you have explored, but here is one way to enable the tapping again, select control panel, go to printers and other hardware, next select mouse, next select the last tab on the page that pops up, click settings, then you should see a page that shows settings for your installed device, i think the second option down should say "tapping" click the check box to enable... hope this helps!

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right buttons next to the touchpad function normally. Did I inadvertantly do something to change the touchpad function? There's nothing in the small manual that came with the computer to cover this situation. Thanks for the help. Carl
