ACER Touchpad: tapping pad doesn't work?

    Hi all:

    I've borrowed someone's ACER TravelMate 4072WLCi laptop and there's one
    thing about it that's driving me crazy: a rapid double click on the
    pad itself does nothing, while on all other laptops I've used a
    doubleclick on the pad is the same as clicking on the left mouse

    I've looked through the places in the control panel where this function
    might be controlled and I can't find any way to turn on the double
    click. Does this particular computer not support the double click
    function, or am I just overlooking something?

    There should be a Synaptics Pointing Device icon in the System Tray
    area. If you right click it, is the "Tap to Click" option enabled?
