    boiledcandyfrog,

     

    Have you made sure that it is not just disabled? I believe that FN+F7 enables/disables the touch pad.

     

    You can also try removing the drivers completely and letting Windows install drivers rather than try to update them from what is already installed.

    You need to prevent Windows from installing it's own touchpad drivers as i have found these to be problematic. In Control Panel/System/Advanced System Settings/Hardware/Device Installation Settings  select "No"

    This will prevent Windows 10 device drivers from re-installation after installing Acers own Touchpad drivers.

     

    When Windows 10 drivers become more reliable, return the Device installation Settings back.
