Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
Only certain keys will respond
Unfortunate but truthful Fact: acer computers have the worst manufacturing practices/cust. service etc., they use old outdated parts from other major manufacturers, that's why their garbage is almost always cheaper than most other brands. Even their highest priced models, will fail in one or many areas just before or after the "warranty" is up, then they'll just stall and wear you out until you give up, sound familiar by any chance? Did you ever try to get help from them? Anyway, Do the keys go down and or click when you try to type? Or does it feel like there is something blocking them from underneath, in other words so they are able travel down then back up quickly and smoothly in their housing when you press on them. You'd be amazed what gets inside and under the keys on a keyboard. Try to blow some compressed air to loosen any particles or foreign matter that might have snuck in there. You can carefully and gingerly snap the keys off, but use an online guide on how to do it, just research it... The inspect and access what you see and go from there. OR you can also carefully and gingerly hold it with the keyboard facing down, and run your hand across the keyboard back and forth quickly to loosen any thing that might have gotten under the keys, and I have personally done this with my keyboard im typing on right now while I had my vacuum running over the keys (compressed air works too, I use a small compressor) instead of my hand, and it eventually loosened up, then sucked up the foreign objects that were blocking my keys. It doesn't take much to clog up the movement.

The problem is the battery as mentioned before. Disabling "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Battery Method" should solve the problem of the keybord and the mouse, this is, because the driver dosen't work properly with a bad battery. I think it fires a lot of hard interruptions that are blocking the keybord and the mouse interruption to the system (each time a key is pressed an interruption is send to the processor... if the battery driver sends a lot of interruptions, the key interruptions don't have time to be processed in time - that explains the fact that the system responds to a key press is that bad)
