Keyboard and touchpad iffy!

I had a friend bring me a Acer Aspire 1640 laptop that was having problems with the touchpad working "jerkily" and the Keyboard getting slow or not working at all. I found that if I took the battery out and just had the AC cord plugged the problems went away! We're ordering a new battery and in the mean time she can use the laptop with just the power cord (and battery removed).

Acer Aspire 3004 keyboard and touchpad error


Just resolved same problem on Acer Aspire 5000 by removing the battery, then goto device manager and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" you can then put your existing battery back into the latop with any problems with the keyboard and touchpad. Mad solution I know but it worked for me

Acer 1640


  • shutdown and power off your acer laptop
  • then remove the battery out of laptop
  • connect the power and switch on ur laptop
  • let it boot to operating system
  • check if its working now? ur keyboard and mouse should be working now
  • you can now connect the battery and keep working.
  • if u want to power off, put ur laptop in hibernate more, rather than shut-down. so u dont have to reboot next time without battery.
  • if u restart or start ur laptop after a shutdown, make sure to remove the battery first

    i hope this will help.

Keyboard/touchpad freezes when the battery is plugged!!


I SOLVE THIS ISSUE 100% WORKING
THE MAIN PROBLEM IS ON THE CONTACT BETWEEN THE BATTERY WIRES AND LAPTOP
IF YOU MOVE THE BATTERY IT WILL WORK SO SURE THE PROBLEM WITH THE LINK BETWEEN THE BATTERY AND THE LAPTOP
SOLUTION : TO MOVE THE IRON OUT OF THE LAPTOP TO THE RIGHT TILT THEM TO RIGHT SIDE A LITTLE BECAUSE THE BATTERY WIRES IS TO THE RIGHT SIDE (WATCH THEM) NOT IN THE MIDDLE AND AFTER THAT PUT A STICK ON THE BATTERY TIGHTED IN ITS PLACE SO IT WILL NOT MOVE ITS NOT FREEZING NOW THANKS
