Defaulting as in date / time ?.... if that is the case ensure that you have put the bios battery back in correctly.... or replace the battery.

What is the best way to prevent spillage from messing up the keyboard


It depends on what kind of spillage. Unless you can find some cover to put over the keyboard, the simplest solution is to keep ALL LIQUIDS as far away from the computer as you can manage.
however, depending on the type of liquid, you can in most cases, if your fast enough, you can wipe off the spill, or disconnect the keyboard and pop the keys off to clean underneath. (keeping sure not to touch the circuit board underneath). Most desktop keyboards allow you to do this quite easily (just make sure to do them one by one- the last thing you need, is to forget where each key is supposed to go, and put for example the "K" key where the "G" key is supposed to be. ) a quick response is especially needed for spillages with sticky liquids, such as Orange Juice or Coke/Pepsi (a computer service tech's worst nightmare) or liquids that will dry with a thick stain, such as coffee/milk products.If the problem is just water however- leave it out to dry for a few days in a really warm, dry place. The board should work with no problems afterwards.
Hope this helps!

I need recovery cd download for acer aspire m1640


There aren't any restore disks because most Acer's have them built-into the hard drive.

Just press SHIFT + F10 when you start the computer.

That should put you into the Acer eRecovery Menu.

If that key combo doesn't work try:

F10
Alt + F10
Fn +F10
ctrl + F10

Let me know which one works, I always seem to forget.

Best of luck!

Liquid poured on my laptop


Alright, the problem is obviouse, Imasuming you have turned it off.

Remove keyboard, usually you have to pop off the plastic bracket and remove a couple screws underneath or on the bottom of laptop to remove keyboard.

Soak up any water or moisture.

Leave the keyboard off for a couple of days in a dry place as well as the laptop.

Remove the battery as well.

If the laptop didnt short out when the water fell on it, then theres a good chance its alright once you dry everything out.

After 3 days or so, and you know its all dry, put back together and give it a try.

If it shorted out when the water fell on it, then the laptop is probably a gonner. You should be able to salvage the Hard drive, RAM and CD Drives.

The mother board is what would go out if water shorted it, you may be able to replace the mother board and it may work fine. It up to you if yo want to try.

Good luck.

Compatability of Memory Upgrade


DDR RAM needs to be installed in pairs, as in if you have two 1GB sticks these would, in a four slot board, be inserted in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. The other odd 512MB stick could go in any other slot theoretically speaking. But, you would be better off leaving it out. The SPD chips on the two 1GB sticks should match themselves to time at the slowest common or fastest common denominator.

There is a chance that by having the odd bank population that you said worked for awhile installed as you had, that the MB RAM slots were put under unusual voltage stess. There is a pretty good chance you can remove the 512MB stick, leave the two 1GB sticks in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. But, this is VERY important: consult your board manual or access it online and read what the population requirments are for the slots as in some cases, the two matched sticks go in 1 and 2 or 3 and 4. This little oddity is found from time to time.

Consult your manual or download it and read how the slots need to be populated and stick with the two 1GB sticks.

There are memory testing programs you can find for free at majorgeeks dot com and test your RAM once you have it populated correctly.

In the future, I'd suggest you purchase RAM from Kingston or Corsair directly online as they usually offer a lifetime warranty and this RAM right now for you board is dirt cheap.

Hope this FIXED, as in ANSWERED you question and was more than helpful. Should you feel compelled to rate this solution after reading, either rate it FIXED or not at all. I know its helpful by default, that's what we do here. But only a thorough answer can FIX your situation. You should be fine if you follow my instructions. But, please consult you manual.

Beer spillage on my macbook pro keyboard and now some of the buttons(including space bar)do not work or responde


Turn off your computer and let it dry out. Leaving the computer running will just cook the liquid and make it stickier. If you ever have a spill again, turn your comp off right away and let it dry out for a good week.

I spilled wine all over an old laptop of mine. Some buttons wouldn't work. I gave it to a friend who asked for it and she says it has worked great for her.

Give your comp a bit of time to dry out. Let it sit in the sun in a window for a week, then try to turn it back on.

If the above doesn't work, ask the guys at your local computer store what you could try to clean it.

Hi,
One or both of your RAMs have developed a fault. Change both RAM. After changing RAM pl format again and than try. Do not insert those faulty RAM again. Get your RAM tested by a software which is available on Microsoft site for free.
