Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5720 Notebook ?

The touchpad pointer is becoming increasingly erratic. For example it will not point easily where i am trying to locate;it jumps at random around the screen; it highlights without this function being selected; it scrolls at random etc etc


Answers :

Try going into control panel & find the mouse section. See if you can adjust the sensitivty down. You may have a program built in from acer to adjust this too. I reccomend turning off the tap feature on the mouse pad. When they get old they get real touchy. If turning the sensitivity down doesn't work, you can try & see if there's an updated driver or re-install the old one. If all else fails,it's time to head to ebay to find the touch pad.

We have an ACER Aspire 5600 and it randomly loses brightness so its very hard to see the screen. Sometimes if two users are logged on you can get the screen bright on one log on but not on the other. The only thing that works is to restart. ACER ePower Management LCD brightness is set to 100% and yet its not always functioning that way. Our laptop battery has lost its power so we are currently running it off the mains, does that have something to do with it? Thanks Helen
