See if you can operate the laptop using an external keyboard. If you can this will help for the next stage.
1.) Did you upgrade from Vista to Win7? This can cause issues with the keyboard filters. Try to (using the external keyboard and mouse) download the latest drivers for the the motherboard
2.) Have you at any time spilled liquid on the laptop? Dried residue, especially from sugared drinks like coke can cause not only shorting of the circuits but also corrosion. If this is the case, you will need to open the laptop to try and clean the affected area, you might need to replace the keyboard also
Sounds rather serious, I’m afraid. Depending on your motherboard and BIOS type, that error message indicates either a failure to initialise the Display Card, or a failure to complete the memory check. Have a look at your motherboard manual and follow the instructions to ‘reset CMOS’. That may correct the problem if you’re lucky, but I’m doubtful it will.
If your motherboard has the BIOS chip inserted into a socket you should contact the motherboard manufacturer and see if a replacement chip is available. If not, you are probably confronted with a ‘dead’ motherboard. I wish I could offer a happier message, but BIOS upgrades are always a risk.
For the benefit of any readers thinking about upgrading their BIOS, here’re a few tips:
If your computer is operating smoothly, don’t do it. The main two reasons for performing a BIOS upgrade are
To enable support for a new processor that wasn’t available when the motherboard was manufactured..
To correct a ‘known issue’ with the BIOS for your motherboard that causes your computer to function incorrectly.
Don’t do a BIOS upgrade during inclement weather periods, when your electricity supply may be subjected to ‘flicks’ or ‘spikes’.
Try to avoid ‘Live Update’ functions for upgrading your BIOS – you’re at the mercy of your internet connection if you use them.
For preference, update from floppy disk. But be sure to use a new floppy, format it and add system files, and then perform a ScanDisk on the floppy, enabling the ‘Thorough’ option to ensure that a surface scan is conducted. Only trust your BIOS update files to the floppy after you’re sure it’s a reliable one. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Thanks.
When you buy a notebook, you generally get a proprietary motherboard. You can't simply buy a new, different motherboard and upgrade notebooks like you can with desktops or tower pcs. If you have a problem that requires changing the motherboard, you have to buy the exact same one.
You will probably want to try to salvage the CPU, RAM, and video card if you do buy a replacement.
What type of computer do you have (laptop or desktop) and what model ? what versions of Window, what type of mouse ( usb, wireless, mouse with ball underside, optical mouse, etc )
And did this happened after a software upgrade or installation ?
What happens when you replace the mouse with another mouse, does it do the same thing ? If you haven't tried with another mouse try doing that first as it may need to be replaced (depending the type of mouse) and that may solve your problem.
it sounds like there is a problem with the integration of software to bios "basic input output system" If the motherboard was replaced and then failed, odds are whatever caused the issue arose within the new motherboard they installed which was prolly a used one knowing Acer. I'd say try to over-ride the problem by 2 ways. 1 send it back to acer for another board, 2 purchase a usb keyboard and use a traditional mouse and when you upgrade, go dell.
For the guy who replaced the keyboard chip, that's useless, the basic input output system is what controls those functions,,,
