Acer Laptop keyboard problem

I have a Acer Laptop. Recently when I press the power button to start,the laptop is giving a long beep sound and does not boot. However when I press F12 (boot device select) button it boots and I can enter WinXP. However after loading WinXP I have discovered that the uparrow button of the keyboad does not work. My question is, is this a problem with my keyboard or is my laptop being damaged beyond repair?

Re: Acer Laptop keyboard problem

I have a similar question. A long while back my down arrow key was completely broken off only leaving a missing whole spot and It can't be used. Now as of recently It seems to be affecting my other arrow keys. A few days ago when I restarted my computer It would stop at the opening load page and just repeatedly sound off like an alarm or a key being held down repeatedly. I have to continue pushing enter or any other key in order for It to stop and continue the startup. Today when I restarted It repeated the same thing above but this time when I logged in anything I clicked automatically scrolled from top to bottom over and over again and there was no way to stop It. No matter what I clicked It would do this. I now have a wireless internet keyboard using a usb port but It is still making the same noises when I restart. How do I disable my acer laptop keyboard?

P.S. I'm sorry for the very long question.

Re: Acer Laptop keyboard problem

It sounds like you have a problem with your CMOS battery. I had a similar problem with another Notebook recently. The computer does not know its CMOS settings (including the BIOS settings) anymore since the battery is empty or damaged. When you enter the device selection (F12) it saves the information again so it can boot normaly now. I think you should get a new CMOS battery and the problem might be solved. Also the keyboard problem might be fixed with that - i also had keyboard problems with the Laptop i mentioned above when the battery was empty.

My acer aspitre 5733Z makes a loud beeping noise on a black screen and won't stop until i shut it off? I tried disconnecting the battery but its not that?

First, try removing the battery and unplugging the laptop. While still unplugged and with the battery still out, press the power button for 30 seconds or so (this will release the static electricity inside). Then put the battery back in and start it up again. This is called a hard reset, and it will fix a number of problems.

I cant start my laptop . when i press start i gives beep sound twice and blanck screen

Sub out the ram one at a time and power up each time, if you are lucky! the machine will start up, if not! remove the main battery and try again. If no change! the motherboard is the problem and you will need somebody to take it to the next level and find out the cause.

Acer extensa 5620 starts booting with a beeping sound . any way when some keys are pressed the beeping sound stops and the copmuter performs normally.

This is likely caused by a stuck key somewhere on the keyboard. A computer's BIOS will beep repeatedly if it is receiving too much input when booting, like if you were holding down a letter key while starting up. By pressing other keys you're probably breaking the repeating input which is why it stops beeping and works normally.

My recommendation would be to check all of the keys on your keyboard to see if any of them are stuck down or generally sticky, or if any of them appear damaged in any way.

If they are not, it may be a problem in the connection from the keyboard to the laptop's motherboard, which would likely require the laptop's keyboard to be replaced, which can be a tricky process. I definitely advise consulting a professional to do a repair like that.

Hope this is helpful!

My acer wont load when i first turn on, or load,gives 2 loud beep

Sounds like the hard drive is going bad. Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop behaves like that if it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad. If it still does then it could be a motherboard problem.. With it making those beeping noises when you first turn it on, they keyboard could be going bad because that would make a laptop start beeping like that as well.

Laptop amkes a beep sound but doesn't boot

Hi Saniple, more than likely those are beep codes and should give us an idea of what is going on. Typically there is a specific pattern of long and short beeps. If you can identify them for us we can start the troubleshooting process
