Laptop touchpad doesn't work during charging

  handful 13:24 19 Oct 2008

My daughter's laptop touch pad on her Acer started to play up at odd times and she has now worked out it is when she uses it whilst it's plugged in and charging. Does anyone know why this may be happening? I will post details of model etc if relevant but sounds like a generic kind of problem to me? Basically stops working whilst plugged in but works perfectly on battery.

Thanks in advance to anyone who may have seen this before and can advise me.
