Hi all, I wonder if you can help me with something odd that happened. Last week I bought a new laptop for my sister, a acer aspire one 756. It comes with load of useless stuff installed. I have removed only office 2010 and installed office 2003, plus a virtual drive emulator, powerISO (I usually install cloneCD but I did so recently on a "acer aspire one happy" and I had an awful lot of problems with it, so I decided to change). Anyway, I have no idea if this is related to software installed but the fact is that the touchpad stopped working. It wasn't really a sudden thing though, it kind of started off one day and got worse. The touchpad doesn't respond to the input and the cursor doesn't follow what you do on the touchpad, it "jumps" that's the best way I can explain this, and the buttons don't seem to do their job, when you click using them quite often the click doesn't get through. I have unistalled powerISO just in case, reinstalled the touchpad drivers, but it still seems to be happening. Has anybody experienced something similar to this? I am a bit lost, and it is really frustrating because the lappy is brand new. Do you reckon I should bring it to support, could it be a hardware problem? I suppose I could plug in an external mouse but, I want it fixed to be hones. What do you guys suggest?
