My R61i Function keys are not working

Hi,

I have R61i "8932A87" having Windows XP-SP2. All function keys are not working. I checked that keypad light and wireless function keys are working. Rest does not work.

I dont know if any specific driver required for function keys to work. But if required why those two keys are working?.

Even I installed bluetooth driver, blue tooth device does not get detected.

Can you please guide me about this.

A software issue for sure
The reason why I say this is because you stated that the device could not be detected even with bluetooth driver.

What do I do when my acer r-1600 will not respond to the " F12 " button instructions?


what function does the F12 button do? maybe the program you are using doesnt make use of this function key, in which case nothing will happen. do other function keys work OK? maybe you need to push a Fn button as well to activate the F12 key. have you tried a different keyboard?

F12 function key doesn t work


Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard.
They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12."
Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond.
Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up.
Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key.
This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work.
Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software.
If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again.
If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality.
Navigate to the link entitled "Microsoft Support: Some Function Keys do not Work Correctly." (See Below.)

How to delete al my data and reboot my computer


Hi shotta-101,

Most ACER computers have a recovery partition or disc that is bundled with the PC that can automatically do the job for you. I would suggest that you read the manual of your computer first or contact ACER support so that you will know how to do this function, since it would be a lot faster to just restore your computer to factory defaults than doing a clean reinstall. Sometimes you just need to press a certain button or key on the keyboard in order to run this function.

If you still want to do a clean reinstall of Windows, you can check out these guide to help you. If you're installing Windows XP Pro/Home SP2 you can you this guide:

http://www.windowsreinstall.com/winxppro/sp2installxpcdnewhdd/indexfullpage.htm

If you're installing Windows Vista Basic/Home Premium, here is a guide to follow (this can also be applicable with other versions of Vista):

http://vistahomepremium.windowsreinstall.com/upgrade/upgradetovista.htm

After that you still need to install the drivers and programs for your ACER desktop PC using the discs that came with the PC.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
