How do I disable my acer laptop keyboard?

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.

How do increase the volume on my acer aspire 5741 laptop

I hope I can help!

If you want to use the buttons on your keyboard to adjust your volume, just hold the "Fn" button just to the left of the windows key, and then push the "up" arrow or "down" arrow. To be clear, those are just the main arrow keys, up will turn the volume up, and down will turn it down (of course).

I hope that helps!

Have you tried pushing the key back on the blank spot hard? Usually it will clip itself back on.

Keyboard letter not working

Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

My keyboard is a mess when almost all the keys

They may have removed the keys to clean the keyboard and placed them back in the wrong spot.
Check the keys against another beyboard and see if the keys have been placed in the wrong spot.
Take it back to the people/company that did the work and tell then the keyboard is not working properly.

Button broke off PC keyboard

Is it a flat key or a normal keyboard type key?

If its a flat key make sure the things underneath the key are flat against the key and put it back on its spot and just press down on it until it clicks. You may need to press hard but please don't press too hard or you might do some damage.

Replacement acer key

In most cases the entire keyboard needs to be replaced. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer to purchase the keyboard as laptop parts are 99% proprietary.

Acer Laptop keyboard problem

It sounds like you have a problem with your CMOS battery. I had a similar problem with another Notebook recently. The computer does not know its CMOS settings (including the BIOS settings) anymore since the battery is empty or damaged. When you enter the device selection (F12) it saves the information again so it can boot normaly now. I think you should get a new CMOS battery and the problem might be solved. Also the keyboard problem might be fixed with that - i also had keyboard problems with the Laptop i mentioned above when the battery was empty.
