    i took off the battery and hold on the power button for 20 seconds to restore the settings. tried holding the CTRL & ESC and switched it on for booting. then switched off again. When i switched it on again and press the F2 key, the bios did not appear on on the screen.

This is generally a driver glitch. You will need to use an external keyboard and mouse, in order to uninstall the drivers for the onboard keyboard and mouse from the device manager, then disconnect the externals and reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers for them automatically. If this doesn't work, then the problem is with the motherboard and you will need to have it serviced.

SOURCE: key board and touch pad do not work

Did it shut off on the keypad? Sometimes things are being so frustrating that we forget that the keypad has a shutoff that can get bumped. Make sure it's on.

My touchpad still wont work for my acer 3000

There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.

How long have you owned the notebook? This sounds hardware related. If so then the touch pad would have to be replaced.

I have a aspire 4520 acer laptop that sometimes freezes up with a white screen and what looks like an equal sign types of lines going through it. kind of in a pattern from one corner to another. it also...


the freezes and lines is most likely the video card failing, or overheating, or damage from overheating.

Its a common problem with the acer aspires, what can you do about it? Vacuum the dust out form the fan or use canned air to blow it out, there will be a lot of it.

Try one of those cooling pads that goes under it.

depending on how bad the problem is with the video card which in most of these laptops can't be user replaced. Got warranty? It might help or might not help at all. That is generally caused by poor cooling and dust in the fan heat sinks so the air doesn't flow and too much heat being generated by the board and its components eventually damaging the video card or the motherboard.

About the 2nd problem, its mainly caused because of your hand touching the touch-pad try a news paper on top of the touch pad or a usb keyboard and see if that problem goes away.
