Keys doesnt work

Acer Aspire 4520G laptop 10 months old, newly re-installed system 1 week ago. PROBLEM: 2 keys and the enter key suddenly doesnt work, so now I cant enter my bios password. I have tried to press numlock and fn and all other keys, but I just get a beep. I cant locate the battery on the motherboard to reset bios. The problem occured while using the laptop so I restarted, and now I cant get beyond the password screen, which is the first thing that appears after starting. It doesnt help pressing any of the F-keys, the password screen is the only screen that appears, so I cant boot from external disc or other. Plz help

Ok..... firstly check to make sure the "NUM LOCK" is off!!! if no joy get a usb keyboard and restart the pc with keyboard plugged in, hopefully if the usb controllers are enabled in the bios you will be able use the usb keyboard and enter your password, use it until you resolve the issue

1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

What function keys do i press on startup to re insatll the operating system on my acer aspire 3690


you can use the recovery disk which came along with the laptop to reinstall the OS. There is no function key to start the installation automatically, there is a backup / restore button in some laptops which can reset the OS. Check the manual for any such button on your laptop.

The enter key of my laptop sudden stopping working?


I would try getting some compressed air. Sometimes called canned air.

1915830-4u4zdtshcqwq1u3gjz1kqwnk-5-0.jpg Blow inside the keyboard, under and around the enter button and see if it helps. Do not hold the can upside down or sideways while spraying! It shoots out as ice and can hurt things further!

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.
