Hey there runforever,

If you think it may have been caused by a spilled drink or some similar occurance (as happens to me more often than I'd like), I have a way to fix it for you. This works on sticky keys caused by other reasons, its just the drink thing that led me to this solution.

  • Put your keyboard in the freezer. (Yes, I'm serious)
  • While its cooling, go get a can of 'canned air'. They sell it at Radio Shack or other electronics stores for blowing dust out and off of circuit boards and such.
  • Once the keyboard is as cold as its going to get, blast the area around the 'F' key with the canned air. Hold the can upside down for a maximum freezing effect. Work the key and blast it again.
  • What this has done is make whatever is causing the key to stick, freeze and become brittle enough to actually chip off. The air blows it away from the keyboard.
  • Plug it in and try it while its still cold.
  • If it works, there you go
  • If it works, then stops when it warms up, you're on the right track. There is just some more crud left in there. Repeat the freeze/blast thing.
I know it sounds weird, but it works for me. It will for for you.

Mike

Full system restore of Acer TravelMate 2310


If you have th eOperating system disk, you can re-install from scratch - but that will lose your documents - so you should back them up to DVD.

Then install all the drivers you need from the Acer site found here,

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, thank you.

Reformatting an Acer Travelmate 2310


Enter the first recovery cd, and choose the option to format the hard drive and install a fresh copy of windows. Then enter the second recovery cd when it asks. It should have an option of formatting the drive when you put in the recovery cds. There is not that much that can go wrong, since you want to delete everything anyway. Hope that helps :).

Is the caps lock light illuminated? If so, you might have to hold shift and hit caps lock to turn off the caps lock. This is an option for old typists who came from manual typewriters that you might have turned on by mistake.
