Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

2 Answers

Sluggish/nonrespondent keyboard I have an acer aspire 3000 notebook and the keypad/mousepad have become very sluggish to non-respondent. However, when I boot in safe mode, they both work perfectly fine, so I do not feel it is dirt on the keyboard or battery problem. I too have tried reinstalling windows thinking maybe I had a virus or something but nothing seems to work. Could it possibly be a driver issue?

Its the Battery! Remove the battery from the Laptop and run it off the mains you will find that your laptop is running just like new. I had same problem.

Yes if you reinstalled windows, the wrong drivers may be in use any way. Download the touchpad driver first and install from link below, then go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager>mice and pointing devices and click on the '+' sign and it will show your touchpad, right click on it and select uninstall. Do the same with the keyboard on the '+' sign again in the same hardware list, then restart your laptop and the items will be re installed and the drivers assigned automatically. There is no specific keyboard driver only a generic one so you have to hope that the touchpad was having some sort of conflict.

Acer Aspire 3000 keyboard failing

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)
