My hp dv7-1245dx has no response from keyboard and touch pad. I can go into the bios but ther keyboard stops working once in bios. is there anything I can do?


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

Recover from failed bios upgrade


Hello,
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
  1. To enable support for a new processor that wasn’t available when the motherboard was manufactured..
  2. 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.

1. Goto COntrol Panel > Mouse properties
2. Then goto wheel tab - exception
3. Then add the programs that arent working.
4. Click apply then ok.

If you don't have the exception area in the mouse properties. Then goto add/remove programs and remove the mouse manager that came with the mouse.
One of these solutions should fix your problem.

Keyboard.mouse,usb notworking


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,,,

Try looking for a bios update on the acer site.

Upgrade graphics processor hp pavilion zv5034us


Honestly speaking, I recommend you to go for a New Notebook rather than changing the Motherboard since it is not possible to purchase another Motherboard for this Notebook with a better graphic card.

The actul Motherboard of your Notebook will cost you pretty more and I personally recommend you to go for a New Notebook with which you can get latest Graphic Card and hardware components.

You can find the list of parts available for this Notebook from HP Part Store from the link below :

http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.asp?mscssid=EJVUXR20AGCT8PMRJKPJXR6FSGX6C2W2

However, if you donot have any issues with the Notebook currently, go ahead working with it.

Hope this helps...
