Re: My Acer Keyboard wont respond when i press the key's
A few days ago my acer laptop aspire 1640z , began to behave slower than usual when typing on the keyboard. At first I thought it was a virus, I did all the necessary scans and found none. I then thought it might be the Keyboard driver, but it wasn’t. I went into safe mode by keeping F8 down when you start the computer and select the directory service restore mode, which resets certain applications back to its original state. I found that my internet AOL connection and explore and fire fox would not connect to the net. Make sure you have a disk for AOL or setup file for fire fox saved, to reinstall the software. This seemed to work a bit but by accident, I remove the battery from my laptop and kept the power cord connect and Wow! it works even faster than before. I have also notice that my battery does not hold a charge anymore. My theory is that because the battery is in critical status when connected to laptop…. (Even though the power cord is connected), the computer thinks that its going to run out of power and wants to go into hibernation mode which slows everything down including typing on the keyboard. So before you try the safe mode option, remove the battery and use only the power cord cable and see if this solves the problem. Mine is running fine again ,but when I put battery back it slows down again. I read on the net its affecting only Acer Laptops, probably because the way the power settings software is set up for the Acers.

Unfortunate but truthful Fact: acer computers have the worst manufacturing practices/cust. service etc., they use old outdated parts from other major manufacturers, that's why their garbage is almost always cheaper than most other brands. Even their highest priced models, will fail in one or many areas just before or after the "warranty" is up, then they'll just stall and wear you out until you give up, sound familiar by any chance? Did you ever try to get help from them? Anyway, Do the keys go down and or click when you try to type? Or does it feel like there is something blocking them from underneath, in other words so they are able travel down then back up quickly and smoothly in their housing when you press on them. You'd be amazed what gets inside and under the keys on a keyboard. Try to blow some compressed air to loosen any particles or foreign matter that might have snuck in there. You can carefully and gingerly snap the keys off, but use an online guide on how to do it, just research it... The inspect and access what you see and go from there. OR you can also carefully and gingerly hold it with the keyboard facing down, and run your hand across the keyboard back and forth quickly to loosen any thing that might have gotten under the keys, and I have personally done this with my keyboard im typing on right now while I had my vacuum running over the keys (compressed air works too, I use a small compressor) instead of my hand, and it eventually loosened up, then sucked up the foreign objects that were blocking my keys. It doesn't take much to clog up the movement.
You might have a faulty keyboard or a key may be continuously pressed without you seeing it physically. When you get to that screen again, try running your hand across all the keys a few times and see what happens. If not, just go on ebay and find a cheap one and replace it.
It seems that the function key (Fn) on the bottom left of the keyboard is stuck or jam. Try hitting the key multiple times or raise it with your fingers. Then try to press I and O again. Below the is image of the key you need to press and clear the jam from. You can also pat the keyboard/ laptop from at the bottom in case the jam wont clear by pressing the key.

Hi! Sorry, I hope I was not too late. You can fix priority order
issue by restoring the default value of BIOS. You can do that by doing
the steps below: 1. Reboot your Acer Aspire 5315 notebook. 2. Wait about 30 seconds until you see the Acer logo on your laptop screen. 3. Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the Acer Aspire 5315 laptop BIOS menu. 4. Select the BIOS option "Load Default Setting" using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Then press "Enter." 5. Press the "F10" key to save the BIOS that is reset to the factory default settings. Hope this helps.
make sure the mouse and keyboard are in right connections...if you look closely youll see icons next to ports.
try without mouse at first start up ,load windows and use key with windows logo on it to access start and scroll to shutdown tab and restart...plug in the mouse before restart.
if logo tab isnt assigned press ctrl + esc to access start menu.
This is a problem I had at onre time and it turned out that I had selected the USA Keyboard in stead of tthe UK Keyboard, you could have the same error or vice versa (ie Uk instaed of USA) so go to START then select CONTROL PANEL then select KEYBOARD and check which is selected and correct if necessary.
Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again
