U may have a software problem & u may have to remove and REstore the drivers for the[keyboadr] button\volume control.

Did u get a RESTORE disk\CD for your t43 pc?

2nd) your keyboard maybe dirty and may need cleaning.

they sell a small vaccum cleaner with a small brush attached to the 'sucky' part.

If not use a " smoking Pipe cleaner " [looks like the ties that keep bread from coming out of the plastic bag] but with soft material around the entire length.soke with lighter fulid,Stick the "pipe cleaner" inbetween the keypads on the keyboard . make sure that u AIR FAN the keyboard  V E R Y   G O O D   AND MAKE SURE THAT THE power is off before u do this.

Pattern reset


Press - 'Volume Button up + Scroll button + Power button' all at the same time. As soon as the phone starts, release the 'Power Button' but continue to press the other two buttons until you see the green Android logo. Then release the other buttons and wait until lines of text appear on the screen. Scroll down (using volume key) to the text line "wipe data/factory reset". Once highlighted press scroll button once and wait until phone is formatted. When the lines of text appear again, choose the top one which says "Reboot phone". Then follow whatever instructions that come on screen. Remember you need to update your Gmail/Google account before you can access applications on "PlayStore".

Acer laptop switched on light up on switch but no screen display


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor. If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.

Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.

Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.

Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases. Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop. Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.

Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.

Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.

Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover. Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it. Pull the bezel off the laptop.

Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.

Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.
If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.

hope this helps
