My Asus X502c will not let me type the same letter more than once and it started making a clicking sound

I will assume you are using a computer with Windows operating system? Windows 7 for example. You need to use System Restore, this way you can take the computer back to a time when it was healthy.
Click on the Windows icon on your Desk top screen
In the box "search programs and files" enter
"System Restore"

Follow the instructions. Your computer will tell you a date you can restore to. Go back a few weeks on the calendar, and be patient as it takes you through the process.
Very easy, and works well

My keyboard is typing numbers instead of alphabets

Hello abeebissa, First try hitting the FN(function key) + numlock, if that didnt help try FN + F11(have heard some models use this instead) If that doesnt work you can go to Programs>Acer >Acer eRecovery Management choose "yes" at the prompt then, a window gives you the options to Backup, Restore, Settings, or Help. Click on Restore. This will give you a choice of Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults, Restore Operating System and Retain User Data, or Reinstall Drivers or Applications. Pick Operating System and Retain User Data. Just follow instructions from there.

Typing slow

Slow performance can be from many different problems. The keyboard may be fine but the PC may have a problem. Except for a wireless keyboard which may have a low battery or obstructed receiver problem.

First go to START / Programs / System Tools / System Restore. Select SET RESTORE POINT and give it a name. This will let you restore your system to the current condition if anything goes wrong.

Try downloading "CCleaner" from (it's FREE). Install it and let it clean up your Windows and your Registry. (You might de-select Cookies option to preserve your logins saved on your Internet browser) It will offer to save original Registry before cleaning it up. In most cases this will resolve slow performance from outdated Windows instructions and Registry errors.

Next go to My Computer / Right click on C drive (boot drive) and select Properties. Go to Tools and select Defrag Drive. If problem is serious you should also run Check Disk and select to make automatic repairs. These programs will take some time to run.

If the problem still persists, update and run your Anti-Virus software. If you do not have Anti-Virus software go to and select AVG Free from the right hand column. This is a very good Free Anti-Virus software.

Disclaimer: The programs I recommend are suggested because they are free and very easy for the computer novice to use. I have no financial interest in these programs. I recommend and use these programs in my computer repair business.

    the procedure you followed was right

    4. Step 4 You will get a dialog box that offers you three choices that you choose by clicking on the option button:
      Restore my computer to an earlier time (this is the one that you want.

      You also have the choice of creating a restore point, or undo my last restoration.

      Click on "Restore my computer to an earlier time". Then click "Next" at the bottom of the dialog box.
    5. Step 5 You will be supplied with a cal ender, from which to choose a previous date to restore to. I always choose the last date that my computer was still running properly.
    6. Step 6 You will see a warning page telling to shut down any open programs. The messages also assure you that you won't lose any information, and that the restore is completely reversible. Windows will shut down your computer, and start it back up with the settings that were in effect on the date and time that you restored to.

    hope you do...

    Here is what I did to get the touchpad to start working again. My laptop is Gateway and a couple years old, running Windows Vista.

    1. Start>Control Panel
    2. Double-click on Mouse icon (or button, depending on how you're systems set up).
    3. When a the Mouse Properties window pops up, choose the Device Settings tab.
    4. Click on the Settings... button.
    5. A new window pops up and on the right side there is a list of options - choose Tapping.
    6. Once clicked, there is a check box that allows you to Enable Tapping.
    7. Click OK to close out your windows and the tapping option should be enabled on your touchpad.

    Hopefully this helps.
