Look in Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the touchpad. The touchpad may not work if you have re-loaded Windows and have not loaded the drivers for the touchpad (or it may be detected anyway, but as a plain PS/2 or USB mouse). The touchpad drivers are probably available in the software and driver downloads for your model on the Acer web sites.

Check the Owner's or User's manual for the model.
Some laptops (e.g. some Acer models) have a keyboard key or key combo that toggles the touchpad on / off.
E.g. I have an Acer 5100-5328 at the present time I've been t-shooting - you use Fn and F7 to do that with that model.
(Hold down Fn, press F7, let go of both keys.)
For some laptops, you can't use a PS/2 mouse and a touchpad at the same time.

If you have spilled liquid on the laptop, or if you have dropped the laptop, the touchpad may not work.
(The Acer 5100-5328 was dropped - the mboard is damaged - the built in display, touchpad, keyboard, and all the USB ports, no longer work.)
