Question about Acer Aspire 5000 Notebook

Problems-Keyboard/touch pad & bluetooth/wireless button

Hey guys,

To those who have helped me over the last few months thank you!

I have finally managed to get windows running on the laptop, unfortunately i am still coming across a few problems! Yeah i know problems with an ACER ASPIRE 5000.

I am still suffering with a temperamental touch pad and keyboard, one minute it works the next it doesn't!! I have taken apart the shell and cleaned and made sure all connections are connected properly with no avail. This isnt stopping me from using it as i have a spare set of keyboard and mouse, it is just a nuisance more than anything. Any one come up with a solution yet (all drivers have been reinstalled).

The main issues i have now are the bluetooth and wireless connection buttons at the front of the machine are no longer working!! they were before i reinstalled windows but now they are not! Again all drivers have been reinstalled!!!

All of these problems are not stopping me from using the laptop but it would be nice if i could get it work 100%

If any one has any suggestions my ears are open!

Thanks again

Thank you for choosing Fixya.com

It sounds like the motherboard might have to be replaced but before you get there,open it up again and check that the bluetooth switch is actually on the switch on the motherboard.Same goes for the wireless. If that does not solve the issues then the motherboard itself needs to be replaced.The usb controllers are still working so that is good but the thinkpad is not and if you reseated them and also reinstalled the drivers then it can only be two things the motherboard or the thinkpad itself. I hope this was helpful
Thank you again

My Dell Vostro 1014 laptop's touch pad does not work!! The buttons work fine but I'm having problems with the pad. The drivers are up to date and the application used to control the touchpad c


If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

Try connecting an external mouse via USB port. If that works you probably need to have the palm rest (top plastic piece that contains the touch-pad and buttons) replaced.

Touch pad sony viao vpceb3j1e not working


Hey there. Often times this is a problem caused by accidentally turning it off. Look for a button on your keyboard or near the touch pad to turn the touch pad on/off. If you're using windows 7 and possible below, you won't need drivers to get the touch pad to work normally.

Wireless mouse is not working. computer says the wireless button is turned off. can't find it to turn it back on. hp dv6 1030us


Check your bios settings when the computer first turns on it well say press F2 to enter setup (could be a different F key) if it doesn't say that, try pressing F2, F1, F10, and F12 or the DEL key. if these don't work, Try again and press all the Fkeys across the keyboard. on will take yo into setup and you should find a wireless device setting to turn it on. If you can't find one, you may not have a wireless adapter installed in your system.

New Lenovo Y430 keyboard and touchpad does not work


Finally, I decided and insisted on being given a replacement for another defective Y430 unit. I am just so glad that the problematic 2 units were discovered before the 7-days allowance for return/replacement of defective units. I now have this third unit of Lenovo to replace the first two defective ones. I do hope this works well and will not make me do a fourth trip to the seller for any returns/ replacements/complaints again. :)

Sony vaio touch pad not working.


My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.

Wireless Button Disabled


After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!
