Need updated BIOS

Laptop keyboard doesn't work. I power it on and it goes to "start windows repair or start windows manually" I can't chose one because the keyboard doesn't work. It automatically counts down 30 seconds and starts the repair but 4 seconds later I get a blue screen that says "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS." What do I do?

Connect a usb desktop keyboard to your laptop using that keyboard
go on the web as usual, if you still can not get the laptop to work
use another computer and, go to your computer makers website
find your computer model and download the manufacture's bios
software burn to a cd then install the bios flash on your laptop as they direct.

SOURCE: no battery detected reading on my toshiba laptop

If the laptop was purchased new in November, 2008, the laptop is still under warranty. So, contact Toshiba for repair or replacement.

If not purchased new in November, the battery would probably need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hello, I have Asus f5z, video

This could either be a problem with the graphics driver, or a problem with the graphics card itself.

Try once more downloading the latest version of the driver from here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-32.aspx and installing it while your computer is running without the graphics driver turned on. Then try re-enabling the graphics driver to see if the updated driver solved the problem.

If updating the driver doesn't work, it's almost certainly a problem with the laptop's video card. If this is the case, you'll want to have it looked at by a professional, or contact Asus support directly to see if they can help you resolve the issue.

Hope this is helpful!

No key board in bios


Try hooking up a USB keyboard and seeing if it works.

If it does work, the keyboard on the laptop may need to be replaced, but I would first check if the cables are plugged in securely.

This can be tedious to do, but the cabling for laptop keyboards are very finicky, and the slightest bump while installing a keyboard can dislodge the connection enough that you might get this error message.

If this is the case when you try to boot the PC completely the POST process may stop saying it cannot detect a keyboard.

If you mean specifically that the keyboard doesn't work while in the BIOS, but works everywhere else such as in windows.

You may need to install a BIOS update for the laptop mainboard.

Checking the manufacturer's site for the most recent BIOS update might fix the no keyboard in BIOS issue.

BIOS updates are not for the faint of heart, they sometimes can be intimidating to do; And you will want to take some caution when doing so.

Laptop keyboard mouse not working


Toshiba has released a few different advisories related to its Satellite line of laptop computers having keyboard problems. Remember that damage caused by liquid or physical damage is not usually covered by warranty.

Bios Fixes
On Satellite models 1955-S801, 1955-S802, 1955-S803 and 1955-S804, the BIOS (system utility setup program) had trouble reading the firmware for the wireless keyboard. BIOS version 1.40 repaired this problem. The BIOS flash program can be downloaded from the Toshiba website. http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=286356xml&sliceId=&dialogID=124900040&stateId=0%200%2084585964 b> Satellite 1955 Text Anomaly b> Toshiba reported a strange, software-specific problem between the Satellite 1955-S801 and S803 computers and Microsoft Word and Excel. Users who held down the shift key for more than five seconds while using the arrow keys would see their highlighted text disappear. The only provided solution was to use an external keyboard attached with a PS/2 connection or to release the shift key if pausing while highlighting in those programs. General Troubleshooting for Satellite Keyboards b> For general concerns about the keyboard -- if it doesn't appear to be working -- try these few steps. Use the keyboard before Windows loads: hit F1 on the first screen that appears after turning the system on. If they keyboard works here, it's probably a Windows problem. Try attaching an external keyboard; if it works, the internal keyboard is likely broken.
Toshiba Laptop Mouse Problems
Some symptoms that occur with Toshiba laptop mice include jumping and vanishing pointers. These situations have occurred after software upgrades have been made. The problems can often be solved by following basic mouse troubleshooting methods. Overall, Toshiba laptop mice contain the basic functions characteristic of the USB variety.

Function b> The mouse device is used to move, open, delete and otherwise connect with items available on and through the computer monitor. In Toshiba laptops and many others, the mouse pad replaces the point and click USB mouse device. This enables the mobile computer laptop to be more compact, portable and ready to use. b> Features b> The mouse pad on a Toshiba laptop is located in the middle, directly below the keyboard. The control buttons, both primary and secondary are situated below it. The primary key, on the left, represents the left-click button on an USB mouse device. The secondary key on the right represents the right-click button on an USB mouse. This button is used to pull up the short menu of an item after selecting it. Update Keyboard Driver b> Many Toshiba mouse issues can be solved by updating the driver. The driver enables the mouse to function properly. Update the keyboard driver first to increase mouse and keyboard device compatibility. To complete this task, click "Administrative Tools," accessible from the Start menu. Next, click "Computer Management," and then select "Device Manager." Click the "Keyboards" expansion node to bring up the list of installed hardware, and then right-click on the keyboard that is in use. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties," go the "Driver" tab and press "Update Driver." Device Manager is a useful tool to update, rollback or uninstall incompatible drivers. b> Update the Mouse Driver b> Update the mouse driver by following most of the instructions in the above section, "Update Keyboard Driver." However, after selecting "Device Manager," click the expansion node next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Select the current mouse device in use and right-click on it. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties" and go to the Driver tab and press "Update Driver." b> Check BIOS Fixes b> Some older Toshiba laptop models require BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fixes. Most of the downloads are available from their website. Since, the BIOS chip is the liaison between the hardware and software, any issues should be addressed promptly. Symptoms, such as erratic mouse behavior or the pointer disappearing, are signs of a need for a BIOS fix or driver update. b> Compatibility b> Toshiba and most Microsoft Windows products are compatible. This is vital when it comes to updating necessary drivers needed for continual operating system function. The service packs they approve of are listed on their website. Hope this helps.

My keyboard is not working . after i upgrade my laptop to windows 7


The operating system does not have direct access to the keyboard, this is handled by a keyboard controller chip on the motherboard (so that it can be controlled by the BIOS). If the keyboard works before Windows 7 is loaded then there is no hardware fault. If the keyboard does not work at all, even before Windows is loaded then you need to check the connection of the keyboard to the motherboard. If it is a problem only within Windows 7 then try an external USB keyboard. If this works then there may be a driver problem.
There may also be some setting in the BIOS, so use an external keyboard if necessary and get into the BIOS to check all the settings there.
Check online for a BIOS update for your laptop.

Starting Windows and Keyboard Problems


- that is why you are getting "Windows Boot Manager" is because your Operating System was already corrupted so if you have Recovery Disk you need to do clean install (re-installing OS again)

- you can also try to do One Key Recovery by powering off the computer then press the button sitting beside of the power (have a curve u)then you should be getting windows loading files but if not you should call Lenovo to ask Recovery Disk

- regarding your keyboard you need to contact Lenovo as well in order for them to replace your keyboard..just call 1-877-453-6686

The voice and sound on my laptop is not working dell d10


Step 1 .Reset the default BIOS settings:
You can try resetting the sound default in the BIOS. Here's how:
1. Turn the laptop on. When the Windows logo first appears, press the F1 key or Dell key repeatedly until you see the BIOS setup screen appear.
2. Press the F5 key ( Setup defaults). In some other PCs depending on the manufacturer the BIOS at start-up will have one of the default options that have names such as - ‘Load Fail-Safe Defaults’ and ‘Load Optimised Defaults’.You will have to choose ‘Load Optimised Defaults’
3. Select Yes or OK, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.
4. Press the F10 key, then select Yes or OK to save the default settings. Press Enter.
5. Exit the BIOS and restart your system checking for sound.
( For most system's entering the BIOS will be the same but if it differs for your system, consult the operating manual for instructions on entering the BIOS.)

If this doesn’t work go to step 2

Step 2 . Configuring on-board sound in the BIOS:

The on-board sound setting in the BIOS should be Enabled. To enter the BIOS, turn on the laptop and when the first screen appears, press the F1 key /Dell key repeatedly until the BIOS Setup screen opens. Use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to select the Advanced tab. Press the DOWN ARROW key to select Onboard Audio Options and press ENTER. If Onboard Audio Options is not available, select I/O Device Configuration and press ENTER. If Audio Codec is listed, select it and press ENTER. Select either Enabled or Disabled depending on your configuration and press ENTER. Press the F10 key and then press ENTER to save and exit Start Windows and check for sound. If there is still no sound, continue to the next Step.

Step 3 . Reload the current sound driver

To do this, follow these steps
1.Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2.In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
3.Locate the audio device that was included with the computer.
4.Right-click the device, and then click Properties.
5.Click the Driver tab.
6.Click Uninstall.
7.Make sure that the Delete the Driver Software for this device check box is cleared, and then click OK.
8.In the Device Manager dialog box, click the Action menu, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
You should see a message that a hardware device is being installed. Additionally, the uninstalled audio device is now present in Device Manager.
9.Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

If that doesnt work and you have an installation CD, the audio drivers should be on the disk.

If you don’t have the CD go to your computer manufactures web page to search for updated sound driver software. Read the instructions on the download pages carefully
before installing.

If there are no updated sound drivers available, use Microsoft's Windows Update feature. Connect to the Internet and try the following items until Windows Update opens:

1.Click Start, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
2.Click Start, click Settings, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
3.Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
4.Go to Microsoft's Web site and click Windows Update from the Downloads menu.

Check if the sound works now….if it still doesn’t work then most likely the sound card might be faulty.

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

Keyboard/touchpad problem.


The keyboard and touch-pad are connected to an internal USB interface, If no USB interfaces are working at all this suggests that the USB host controller (a physical computer chip) has failed.
You can try a chip-set reset; disconnect both power and battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (timed), this will reset all chip settings to default and discharge any static buildup but this is in no way guaranteed to fix the problem. If the laptop is still under warranty arrange for repair.
In the mean time most of the Aspire 5100 series have a PC card slot on the side so you could use a USB or PS2 host card to connect a keyboard and mouse.
