SOURCE: Acer Laptop keyboard problem

I have a similar question. A long while back my down arrow key was completely broken off only leaving a missing whole spot and It can't be used. Now as of recently It seems to be affecting my other arrow keys. A few days ago when I restarted my computer It would stop at the opening load page and just repeatedly sound off like an alarm or a key being held down repeatedly. I have to continue pushing enter or any other key in order for It to stop and continue the startup. Today when I restarted It repeated the same thing above but this time when I logged in anything I clicked automatically scrolled from top to bottom over and over again and there was no way to stop It. No matter what I clicked It would do this. I now have a wireless internet keyboard using a usb port but It is still making the same noises when I restart. How do I disable my acer laptop keyboard?

P.S. I'm sorry for the very long question.

If you have the installation or restore CD insert that in the CD drive and restart the computer. That should stop the problem. For some reason Vista systems like to default to asking for an Administrator password when you enter the recovery for systems. This is not normally the same password you use everyday. It is a password you typed in when you installed the system to begin with. The problem is most people have the store they buy the PC at do the initial install so they don't know what it is. You can try contacting the store that did this install or Acer to see if they have an idea of what it is. It maybe a combination of initials or your last name depending on what the store policy is.

Boot menu

Your computer's BIOS, or basic input/output system, regulates several important system functions before your operating system loads.
The BIOS can even tell your operating system which device it should load from, whether the computer's hard drive or a USB stick.
You can control this and other options from the BIOS boot menu.
If you own an Acer Aspire One netbook and want to access the boot menu, you can do so by entering the computer's BIOS.

Turn off your Acer Aspire One netbook.
Turn it back on.

Press "F2" when you see the Acer logo appear as the computer boots up.
This will open the computer's BIOS menu.

Press the arrow keys to highlight the Boot option.
Press the down arrow key to highlight specific boot settings to change.

Windows operating systems support a variety of boot options on the Windows Advanced Options Menu that allow you boot your computer based on your need.

They support boot options such as Safe Mode, which is generally best for troubleshooting and virus removals; or the Safe Mode with Networking, which allows to use an Internet connection while troubleshooting system problems.
Within seconds, you can access the boot menu and select the option that works well for the task you want to accomplish.

Shut down all currently running programs and restart your computer.
Press "F8" repeatedly before the Windows icon shows up on your screen.
This will bring you to the "Windows Advance Options Menu."

Scroll down and select the boot option you want.
Press "Enter."You can select from "Safe Mode" "Safe Mode with Networking" or your regular booting option.
Choose the boot option based on your need.
For troubleshooting, it is advisable to select "Safe Mode" because only a certain amount of drivers and resources run allowing you to resolve issues.

Choose "Reinstall Applications/driver" from the Options provided and press the "Next" button.

Select "Driver" and "Camera" from the Drivers screen. Move to the right side of the window and choose "Install Camera Driver Now."

Let the laptop reboot and install the driver.

Hi from london, have new acer aspire 1 zg5 new keeps shutting down after boot can u hlp pls?

Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:
Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe mode" then press Enter.

Once you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System Failure.

Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.

If the system failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot the system to "Last known good configuration"

Acer Aspire 5315

Shut the notebook completely down. Now turn it back on, and as soon as the Acer screen comes up, hit the “F2′ key to enter the BIOS. Navigate to the second page of the BIOS (titled “Main”) by pressing the right arrow key.

You may wish to turn of “Network Boot” by selecting it with your arrow keys and hitting enter, then changing it to disabled. This is often used in a cluster-lab environment, and for normal users only slows down your boot process.
You must now turn on the F12 Boot Menu by selecting it with your arrow keys, hitting Enter, and changing it to “Enabled”
Now switch to the “Exit” page, and hit Enter to “Exit Saving Changes”. The BIOS will ask you to confirm, tell it “Yes”.
Now the notebook will reboot, and you must hit F12 to boot from your CD.
On the “Boot Manager” screen, chose the second option which should be an ATAPI drive, such as a DVD-RW or CD-RW, highlight it with your arrow keys and press Enter.thank u,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
