SOURCE: Acer Aspire 3000 keyboard failing

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)

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)

Replace the keyboard easily available for cheap. Get full manual at Acer website but replacement is easy, be careful of the clips holding the connection to the motherboard, don't remove just slide upward to release..

Keyboard not working


Try hitting "fn" key and f7 key at the same time. If that doesn't do anything, look in Intel Graphics control panel running in the task bar and look for a section called HOT KEYS. And disable the HOT KEYS. See if that works.

My mouse and think pad do not work


There are 2 possible answers to this common issue, the first is that the aspire has a mouse lock. check your keyboard on the function buttons for a picture of a mouse with a line though it, hit function and at the same time press the mouse with the line through it and if its locked off this will turn if back on. The second answer is driver issues, if the first suggestion dont work I would go to the Acer website click on downloads and drivers and enter your model number. Then download and install your think-pad and mouse pad drivers and install.

What button do i press on my acer extensa 5235 to use a monitor instead of the laptop screen as it is smashed


1. Down near the botton left corner of your keyboard, you should see a blue colored "Fn" key.
2. Look at your top row of Function Keys F1-F12. Locate the one with a picture of a monitor on it. It is typically F5 or F7.
3. While Holding the "Fn" key, hit the F5 or F7 key. Give the laptop about 3 seconds to switch between modes.

That should switch the display over for you.

I have tried holding the zero key while pressing the start button on my toshiba satellite, but it does nothing to bring up any recovery.


Try hitting any of the following keys:
  • F8 (should bring up the windows boot screen, and on there you should see "Repair your Computer" or something similar).
  • esc
  • del
  • f7
  • r
  • c
  • ~
  • home
I believe F8 is the one you need to hit, but the others are keys I've seen to be various boot options in the bios. Note: F8 needs to be hit after the BIOS screen but before the loading windows screen.

Region unlock a Sony DVP-SR500H


Ok here's what I've figured out for Sony dvp sr500h...

To get to the hidden menu, you need to start with the DVD player power OFF
then hit
TOP MENU
CLEAR
POWER (to turn the dvd player on)

and you should now see the hidden menu

then go to option 2
then option 4

then this is as far as I get...you can enter codes here but none I've tried have worked....

the ones I've tried so far are 2812, 34570, and 12450

if anyone can figure out the correct code please post here.

INSPIRON 640M WILL NOT GO INTO SAFE MODE , IT GIVES OPTIONS BUT NONE OF THEM WORK , THEN IT GOES TO THE BLANK SCREEN.


Try going to safe mode manually. The steps mentioned below will help you accessing the safe mode

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Safe Mode/Safe mode with networking".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

I've tried pressing fn and f7 at the same time and it won't work, neither will any of the other suggestions. And my computer keeps saying that the touchpad is enabled. Is there anything else that I can do...


Try hitting just the F7 key only. I had an issue with an HP Mini laptop and was hitting the Fn and the F7 key and found the key combination didn't work when I pressed both Fn and F7. But it did work when I just hit the F7 key (even though "F7" was written in blue, the same color as the Fn key, it turned out that I didn't need to press Fn and the key for F7 to gain the functionality of the F7 key. HP tech support informed me of that when I called them due to a similar issue I experienced a while back).

Try to hit F7 alone. That may help you out.

As for the touchpad, it should be enabled. (Unless you're using a different pointing device and want it disabled). There are options where you can turn off the touchpad on start up, but I would advise against doing so.

My touchpad has stoped working on my Acer Aspire 5732 Z


Hello,

Sometimes it differs but you can try pressing FN and F7 together on your keyboard to see if that will enable the touchpad again.FN should be next to your left-ctrl on your laptop keyboard.

On other Acers, there's either a seperate button to enable the touchpad or a different Function key. See on your keyboard the function keys and choose the one that looks like a tochpad, with a pointing hand. Sometimes the icon on the key just looks like a mini-touch-pad.

As soon as I power on My Dell D610 in boot screen appear : '' MANUFACTURING MODE: LEVEL '67'''
''PRESS FN + X TO RETURN THE SYSTEM TO NORMAL MODE'. This does not appear to work, it then shows hit F1 for shutdown, nothing happening with that operation either.
