Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Laptop keyboard typing gibberish

Hi! I have an Acer Aspire 5920 and the keyboard is not typing the right letters. I tried to go into Control Panel, keyboard, but could not solve the problem.

Any suggestions?

The only thing that has changed in the last three months is I hooked up a regular keyboard to my computer. Could that have messed up the laptop keyboard??

    Omigosh. I feel really silly now. It turns out that I just needed to turn off the num lock key on the right keypad.



    Well, now we know the solution to this problem :-) Thanks!

You have turned on the Number Lock. This enables the number keypad that is embedded in the main keyboard. There is set of three lights to the right of the power button; the middle one indicates when the Num Lock is on or off on the keyboard. To toggle this on or off press and together. The key is between the and the at the lower left of the keyboard.

Crystal eye web cam not found on aspire 5920


Hi,

Acer aspire has inbuilt web camera and therefore will work only if the correct drivers are installed. Please uninstall the drivers first from control/panel/add remove programs. Next reboot the system and then go ahead with the installation.
