Note to future self, or to whoever may run into this issue:
I recently installed Windows 10 on a newly bought Acer E13 laptop. However I quickly noticed that I couldn’t get around as much as I wanted – the trackpad wouldn’t work.
Suffices to say that all manner of driver installs didn’t solve the issue. However, on an Acer community board, I found a hint to solving the problem. To enable the tackpad do the following:
- Reboot the laptop and hold down the F2
- In the BIOS settings which open, go to the Main tab and locate the Trackpad option
- Change the setting from “Advanced” to “Basic”
- Press F10 to save the settings and reboot
Hopefully this fixes your trackpad. Enjoy!
