you havent got a button on it do you which turns it on and off?
if it is orange, you've turned it off, if its blue, it's on. mine is just above my touchpad
not that i know of no?
bro nami- its an acer aspire 5720, just bought it like a week ago as an emergency because my hubby knocked my previous laptop over the sofa arm and it's broken and I was in middle of writing my dissertation and other assignments, so needed a laptop asap, got this Acer but I'm really not liking it. and now this touchpad thing has happened,, I don't want it anymore..not sure if the store will take it back and give us a refund or alow us to swap for another laptop.
