KEYBOARD NOT FULLY WORKING SOME KEYS ARE WORKING FULLY SOME ARE GIVING DIFFERENT WORD I.E. PRESSING S SHOWING X


specify your complete problem what do you mean by my acer laptop is clicking ....

have you problem with your laptop power or OS failure??

check for warranty ..sometimes this happens cause of the voltage problem in your arrea??? check your charger for this


my second openion is

board is X3100 rite .. now check the RAM is it inserted properly , then check for the processor .. unplug it from frame and then insert again check if its not burned .. the chip on its upper level will be shinning and new if it isn't , if it is dark and burn-y type then your processor is out , there is always a power bulb in mother board,,, if it is on when you turn the laptop on then your main board is OK . and if its not then out of work .. sorry for that i am a professional at boards but sometime if you don't see a thing for your self ,things don't work,,,, it is this way ,no matter how much i try if you don't explain the things right to me i wont be able to figure it out . more over have you tried to plug it by VGA cable to a monitor or LCD..

about your issue first of all i wonder that Was the adapter you bought directly from Lenovo? I just know that dell builds in a chip to detect the adapter, some other adapter might work but it will burn down the board after quite some time . may be your another lap top didnt spend much time on that adapter ,
secondly

my second openion to you is I would say your laptop lcd and other parts are fine it is a mother board you require.
If you browse ebay there are lots to choose from at different prices. It is a straightforward job to replace .:)

laptop wont turn on


Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue.
1. Remove the battery.
2. Confirm that the AC adapter has power.
3. Remove all the customer removable units (CRU) except a single ram module.
Here CRUs to be remove:
* Optical drive
* Primary Battery
* PCMCIA cards
You will only removed the above peripherals if Dell will allow it.
7. Connect the AC adapter directly to the system.
6. Attempt to power on the system using only the AC adapter.
7. If the system does not POST, connect an external monitor and check for POST. This will let you know if there is a problem with the LCD.

I hope this helps resolve the issue.
