Re: keyboard and touch pad locked

Reboot- if that does not work the keyboard/touchpad may be disconnected or bad. ram is under an access panel on the bottom in the middle- you need a small screwdriver to add ram (ddr)

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

Control Panel\
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon. Hope this helps.

Touchpad as stopped working

Are you sure you did not lock the touchpad?
Some laptops will have a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that locks or unlocks the touchpad.

Some laptops provide a feature where you have to tap twice in the upper left hand corner of the touch pad to lock or unlock it.

Some laptops will require a keystroke to lock or unlock the touchpad. Normally you will have to Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Download and reinstall the drivers.
Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

How do you unlock the keyboard

Is it that the keyboard is locked so no keys work, or is the touchpad locked so that the mouse pointer does not move?

I've seen more and more people locking the mouse pointer. If that's the case there might be a button to push that is at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles it on and off. Also on some brands, you will have to hit either the FN or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the F1 thru F12 key that controls the touchpad. Usually the correct key to press will have the icon of a finger in a square box representing the touch pad.

Unlock keyboard for a Acer AS7540-1284

The Keyboard is locked? Or do you mean maybe the mouse pointer is locked? Look on your keyboard and see if you see anything that resembles a mouse touch pad. Some systems will lock the touch pad, but it can be unlocked by hitting a combination of keys, such as holding the FN key + the key with the touchpad icon.

Touch pad doesn't work

Determine What's Wrong
laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif touch pad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touch pad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items.

Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."

Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touch pad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touch pad may need to be repaired or replaced.

Repairing/Replacing TouchpadA touch pad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touch pad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touch pad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost.

Attempting to replace the touch pad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop.So just attach a mouse to it so you can work easily.Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Keyboard and touch pad locked

You need the password to unlock it.  If yo don't have it you are out of luck. Password is stored on a separate chip and needs special tools and knowledge how to replace it.

If your laptop's memory can be upgraded there is usually a small panel you remove under the laptop. Then you need to tell some one at the computer store where you buy memory chips the make and model so they can give you the right chip.
