    Hey,


    So here's the 411, I recently bought an Acer Aspire One 532h from my trip to New York and in my haste to get everything packed, I left the small clover plastic thing you need to put on the end of the charger in the box when I threw it away. When I got back I purchased a universal charger from ebay for about 20 quid; When it arrived it seemed to charge fine but i've noticed if i charge it while the netbooks still on, the mouse really jitters making it almost impossible to use.

    I tried updating the software (ALPS touchpad) but that just made the touchpad not work at all, so i had to roll it back. Although, if i plug in a usb mouse it seems to work fine with being charged.

    So here's my question: is it the touchpad software that is buggered or the actual charger? I still have the American power cable so if anyone has the technical name for them clover plastic things and if they're widely available/cheap I'd much rather buy one of them and use the official charger then this universal one anyway.

    Another thing to note is when its being charged I can just hover my finger over the touchpad and it'll register but when its not plugged in it won't, probably just because of the extra power going to it but I just want to be sure.

    Thanks

    You said the ALPS driver didn't work, are you sure you don't have the Synaptics touchpad instead?

    I tried installing the synaptics touchpad driver but for some reason it was being reconigsed as a mouse; but with that aside it still had the jittering problem.
