Is there any kind of troubleshooting I can do before I go last resort?
Did you turn the touch pad off accidentally? To turn it back on just hit Function+F7 If that didn't work, go to Device Manager, Mice and other pointing devices, properties and check the status. If its OK, reinstall the driver, and power off the machine and reboot. If there are no drivers visible during a reinstall, download them from the Acer website. If all the above don't work, take it back.
