Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

KBD nonfunctional after sticky key option box pops up.

I have an Acer 3610 that is about 3 years old. I have been using an external MS wireless kybd and mouse on the laptop for about 2 years now. Yesterday my sticky keys options box popped up so I "X" out of it and it went away. Now the KYDB is nonfunctional on either the laptop itself or any other external keyboard I plug into the usb port.
The touchpad is still fully functional as is the wireless mouse.
The kybd shows up in the control panel and there is a report (sound) when I either plug or unplug the keyboard from the USB port. I can access my external HD as well as most things that don't require a password. I have blownout the keyboard with compressed air. Used a restore point from last week. banged on the back of the computer.
I have never seen anything like this, Anybody got any ideas??

Its seems your problem are Drivers, the easiest way to check is to go to your Control Panel then select Device manager look for yellow either question marks, yield signs or highlighted areas (example post). Update the drivers and it should be working like a champ. Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 3610 does not recognize wireless internet connection is available when it is running on battery alone. Plug in the AC cord and it recognizes wireless is available but then takes forever to...

If you are running windows vista or windows 7 then you need to go to the power setting on the system, in the advanced options and look for wireless power setting. Turn the when on battery setting to leave the wireless card running instead of turning it off.

Go to display settings, screen saver, power options, balanced power or power saver, and look in there for the wireless adapter.

Kids :) To solve your problem first you need to find out if there is any key that is broken or loose. What you could do is 1) turn off the laptop and wipe the keyboard hardly with a towel to release one of those broken keys. 2) if this doesnt work, you need to unplug external keyboard, and then goto start-> right My Computer -> Manage -> device manager -> keyboards -> rightclick standard keyboard and disable it.

Now put in your external keyboard and test your keyboard. Dont worry your mouse is still working and you can enable your onboard keyboard again. Try this and let me know if your problem is solved or detected. If your external keyboard works, i guess there is a problem with your onboard keyboard. you would require to service it. cheers.

How to switch to a external monitor? my laptop is an ACER 3610

Look for an icon on your keyboard that looks like a box or a screen. it is usually on the top number area, somewhere between 2 and 8 most the time. Press the FN key (usually blue) and HOLD it, then, TAP the screen key. It usually has 3 settings: 1. Built in LCD, 2. External, 3. Both LCD and External. Also, depending on your video card settings, the external could DUPLICATE your desktop, or EXTEND your desktop, but that would be adjusted by the video card driver program, not the hardware.

Sticky keys

Now by sticky keys do you mean that when a key is pressed that it stays pressed even though your not hitting the key anymore? Or is it that certain keys such as Cntrl, alt, and delete stick. If its the latter you'll need to go into control panel and open up ease of access, from here go to make the keyboard easier to use. Once here there will be an option to have sticky keys, uncheck this box if it is checked. Also there is another option in this menu that says filter keys. If this box is checked uncheck it. Hope this helps.

Wireless network

If it is an internal card you should be able to obtain them from Acers website. If it is an external go to that vendor and extract the files from them!
