Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

Acer Aspire 3000 keyboard failing

My acer aspire 3000 keyboard seems to be failing. I\'ve had to attach a usb keyboard and mouse to use the laptop.

Keys on laptop are almost non-responsive (they have to be hit numerous times before working) and the cursor is jumpy and hard to navigate - if at all.

My daughter reformatted the HD last week with the acer restore disks thinking that would solve the problem, but it still persists.

Any clues what the problem is?

Thanks,

Karen

    I am having problems with my Acer Aspire 3000, my AWSZ keys are very tempremental...as you can see they are working at the moment (which makes a change!) but more often than not they dont work. I have read some of the solutions which i want to try but i dont know how to do this...HELLLLPPPP. i am pc literate of a sort but when it comes to the really technical stuff its all a bit gaga.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    i had exact the same problem, i fixd it by installing vista ultimate, its still had tht problem at first but i think vista fixd it in the 1st cuple of restarts. hope this helps

    Same problem -- cursor is jumpy and windows open and close by themselves. I'm ready to throw it out the window.



    Acer walked me through an uninstall and reinstalll of the mouse and touchpad and an entire system reinstore to no avail.



    Unless I find a solution, I'm going to try to return the computer; I can't work with it.

  • Hellknight Jan 20, 2008

    my acer aspire 3004 wlmi have the exact same problem. The keyboard is absolutly not responding and the computer works so slow that i cant even open setups. :S

  • andycam Jan 22, 2008

    Had the same problem on an Acer Aspire 5000, found out the battery is also the problem

  • bahenry Jan 31, 2008

    I'm having the exact same problem. I took my laptop in to have it checked out and I was told it was my motherboard.

  • adex02 Feb 16, 2008

    it is your battery folks. i know this sounds odd, but remove your battery whie the computer is on and up to windows. i'll be your mouse and keyboard will return to normal. i know it sounds funky but i found this out by accident one day. trust me. btw i own my own computer repair business and hae heard of this kind of this happening more than once. also be careful with you power plug (where you plug it in to the back of your laptop) if you ever have to wiggle it to get it to charge, DON'T! it has detached from the motherboard on the inside. this is a common fault on these computers, but it is an easy fix in the right hands. i do it all the time. just some fyi stuff for you there.

  • computron Feb 26, 2008

    Yes, It is the battery, is giving a lot of crazy problems.

  • andymcafee Mar 01, 2008

    Same exact problem here with my daughter's 3000. She kept telling me that she had to unplug it and let the battery run out in order to restart the computer. I was very close to reinstalling windows and losing all of my daughter's info when it dawned on me. I am going to try to get a new battery to see if this works. Has anyone tried putting in a new battery or is this just an issue internally?

  • gciriani Apr 05, 2008

    The keyboard froze; I reloaded the Windows XP several times without
    results. It takes a keystroke only after pushing the button for several
    seconds. It's not the hardware, because it works well in Safe Mode.





    I don not understand the recommended solution.

  • Anonymous Apr 26, 2008

    Just pull out your battery, you'll see it will work again... I had the same problem, so i guess my battery is dead...

  • Anonymous Jul 11, 2008

    Yup, no keepboard or mousepad... plus holding the power button would turn the unit off. We had to remove the battery to turn the unit off. Running without the battery did the trick.. Excellent!!! Has anyone then bought a new battery and then found everything back to normal?

  • Anonymous Aug 13, 2008

    Had same problem, laptop just 2 years old. Have been using external keyboard & mouse...hopeless, defeats purpose of having portable computer!



    Can keyboard be replaced - would appreciate some advice!

  • fixya-kambiz Sep 02, 2008

    I have the exact smae problem. WOW!!!! I had to pull the batter out to reset the laptop. The external mouse works when hocked up but I did not have a keyboard to hook up to test. from reading sound like the batter may be bad. I wonder if ACER knows and there should be a RECALL of this?

    I have the exact same problem, but discovered the battery causes it by accident, I had he battery out, and decided to put it back in and instantly the keyboard stopped working, I will never never ever buy another acer again, they have absolutely no support at all, it would be nice to be able to email a tech and see what would fix it. Has anyone put a new battery in?? My laptop used to work fine with the battery in it, I am wondering if it is because the battery went bad? But the battery holds power still? I am going to sell this garbage and buy a new computer, but I am going to research them first to see who has support, acer sucks.

    Same problem :-(

  • -Craziness- Jan 31, 2009

    Hello everyone, I hope this helps some or all of you!



    I have a simular problem with my Acer 5670. My computer froze on me yesterday, nothing would work until I pulled my battery out, but kept my power cord plugged in.

    Today I went on line to see about pricing out a new battery & found that Acer has a huge recall on most of their batteries. It took me like 2 minutes to fill out a form & they send you a free replacement battery.



    The web link is:

    http://www.acerbatteryrecall.com



    Just go to the bottom left of the page & click on "check my battery" then you'll have to choose from a note book model dropdown menu. With mine, I have the "Acer Aspire 5670", but they call it the "AS567x" AS meaning Aspire and then instead of putting a 0 at the end of the model # they put an x for all of them.

    I wonder if that's their way of budgeting... they may think people won't understand so they will have less batteries to replace. hummm...

    Anyway, good luck to all & I hope this helps.

    Thank you so much. My son's Aspire 3000 has been a great laptop, but recently everything has gone wrong with it. I decided to bite the bullet and reformat with the understanding that all his files would be lost. After reformatting the keyboard went dead. I googled the problem and your sharing posting solved the problem. Thanks again.

  • Anonymous Feb 14, 2009

    Same problem, but in Aspire 1640WLMi. I can see the processor working at 90% when the battery is connected. The solution is, of course, to detach the battery, or better to disable the Battery ACPI control. Bad Acer electronics!
    Thanks to everybody.

The problem is the battery as mentioned before. Disabling "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Battery Method" should solve the problem of the keybord and the mouse, this is, because the driver dosen't work properly with a bad battery. I think it fires a lot of hard interruptions that are blocking the keybord and the mouse interruption to the system (each time a key is pressed an interruption is send to the processor... if the battery driver sends a lot of interruptions, the key interruptions don't have time to be processed in time - that explains the fact that the system responds to a key press is that bad)

REMOVE THE BATTERY, goto device manager, expand "Batteries" and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" you can then install the existing battery without it disabling the touchpad and keyboard, this worked on an Acer Aspire 5000.

Disabling the battery fixed my keyboard problem. Amazing,
disabling the "Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method battery" in device manager. That way you don't have to have your dead battery out of your system in order to use it without issue.

I removed my Acer Aspire 5732Z battery yesterday and hey presto, I was ready to marry the guy who cme up with the solution, this morning I switched on my laptop and guess what it is worse.
This will drive me crazy, I got the machine in December and it is well within warranty, but they say they could have it for20 days, way down south in the UK, in Plymouth, impossible, may as well have no warranty.
Anybody out there got any good ideas.

I can't believe I spent all this time flippin out because the keyboard and touch pad would work then it mysteriously wouldn't, then it would and then it wouldn't. Re-install from scratch then uninstall, driver updates, re-install on and on for the past few months :(

I had the exact same problem and thanks a MILLION to "adex02" for mentioning the battery problem.

My keyboard would work fine in DOS and in the Acer Recovery console, but as soon as the windows setup screens came up and after that I could not use the keypad or the keyboard. Often if I hold the key down for 30 seconds it will type the letter, but not always. I just removed the battery and left it plugged in and it works great!
What a crazy problem!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I didn't have enough time to read all the posts, but the problem is somehow linked to the drivers. The keyboard and the touchpad work if the battery is taken out, but however they will work with the battery in if you reinstall the drivers, either with the CD they gave you or by entering Safe Mode and Drivers and then uninstalling the keyboard drivers... Then all you have to do is to restart into Normal Mode and.. It works... for a while...:)

I had erratic cursor problem on Aspire 5520. Tried disconnecting battery. For my Acer it did not work. Contacted Acer and they told me to disable tapping. If you have Alps driver for the touch pad, you can do it by clicking mouse icon in the Control panel, and then, uncheck tapping. Worked in my case.

I work at a computer store and we had two of these laptops with this problem, and indeed removing the battery fixed the problem. Really REALLY bad work by Acer...

Posted on Oct 10, 2007

I can\'t believe it either!! I\'ve had problems with this battery since i bought the laptop a year ago.. never lasted long.. recently it\'s been only able to last 5 mins..
Had the keyboard/touchpad problem too.. read this forum.. disconnected the battery.. and wollah!! fixed.. tried everything from driver updates and system restore..
Happy again.. thanks for the tip!!

Posted on Oct 04, 2007

The reason that the battery trick works is that when the battery is too weak and trying to charge the combined current draw of running the LT at the same time causes the 5v rail to drop below threshold. Good 5v is required to run the keyboard.

Posted on Jun 16, 2007

Wow... 25 years as a computer scientist and never, NEVER, would I think to remove the battery to fix the keyboard.....
...learn something new everyday :-)

Posted on Jun 10, 2007

It\'s the battery,


what the hell does that have to do with the keyboard and mouse? Apparently everything. I reinstalled like 7 times via the restore disks and two other versions of xp. Installed the drivers and everything to no avail. removed the battery and wallah. poof perfectly working keyboard and touchpad

Posted on Jun 06, 2007

I had the same problem; removing the battery works perfectly fine! As strange as it may seem...

- Sometimes, the keys become non-responsive due to dirt settled on the IC below the keypad
- So, the first thing we can do here is clean the keypad, if you know how to unscrew your laptop ot seek help from someone who can help you unscrew it

This may sound a little silly but you have not got the mouse and keyboard in the wrong sockets in the back have you ?

If they are usb have you disabled the USB in the bios by any chance ?

Hi my wireless keyboard & mouse do not work at all on my Acer Aspire M3970, but both a cable keyboard & mouse do?


There is a USB receiver underneath the battery panel of the mouse, although it looks like part of the workings of the mouse. It's only a very small thing with a USB plug on it but it is there. The instructions don't show a picture of it, so it's very easy to think you haven't got one until you look closely

Unclip it and put it in your USB port and it should come up.

I've lost my Acer Aspire Z5710 dongle. Is it possible to find some other USB device to connect existing keyboard and mouse? Maybe there're any third-party compatible dongle manufacturer?


Why can't you just connect the keyboard and mouse to the usb ports on the machine?
You should be able to find the part on ebay or Acer parts for that matter.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a fantastic day.

My touchpad still wont work for my acer 3000


There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.
