Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Is there any reason why a single letter key would stop working on a computer purchased new for Christmas and used for less than a week? There is nothing beneath the key, it's been taken off and put back on and it still doesn't respond unless it is prodded harder than normal typing.

Maybe the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the system board is not fully inserted. I have had this problem in the past and its only solveed by completely dismantling the laptop and even then its not 100% certain thats what thet problem is

If you used it for less than a week its obviously still under warranty , just backup all the important data and get it exchanged

It sounds like your function key is either stuck or broken. Try prying the key off (carefully) with a knife or something to check if you can see the damage. You can also try cleaning it (search google for keyboard cleaning procedures). If it's broken, you may need to purchase a new one. They can be found easily on e-bay.

Why is it that its slower than before when i first got it and i got this less then a week! it also take forever to load up n sometimes freezes on me while I'm doing something online and listening to music.


Unless you have added a lot of software since purchasing the computer, you should return it to where you purchased it. There could be many reasons why it is slowing, malware or a virus are two, but failing or incompatible hardware is the reason why you should return it. No new computer should freeze!

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

New watch has stopped


There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:
  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead or dying battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement or somehow damaged the movement through usage and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

Unable to see the pictures because screen is dark ( Kodak C713)


Sounds like a back lighting issue if it worth it to you, you can have it serviced. You can also purchase a camera that for less then you paid for that one and it will be better and new with a warranty.
Keep me posted.
Thanks,
