I have the same keyboard and n30 device before, it worked for me, although I think your wireless keyboard version has some incompatibility.

If you chainpus version is the discontinued one like here:

Then it supports only up to acer n10 as shown in it's compatibility list here:

Acer n30 Screen Tap Freeze

Sounds as if the touch screen membrane is defective, which is a darned nuisance, but not impossible to fix .... if you are confident of dismantling the n30, you can buy a new touch screen membrane from Ebay for about 4 pounds/6 dollars.
It is a very skilful job to remove the old touch membrane from the actual display screen below it, not really for a novice, and all internal components are very delicate, so i suggest you find a tame technician before you buy the new membrane. The touch membrane connects to the motherboard via a tiny flexible 4 or 5 pin membrane ribbon cable, it's a miracle of miniature engineering inside the n30, so do ve very careful if you decide to do it yourself, best of luck!

Acer N30 battery problem (even new battery does not last enough)

try checking your power saving options, you can drop down the backlight a little lower to extend battery life. Also you can lower down the volume of the system sound and check if the bluetooth is on, then turn it off. Recharge it and then check if the battery life extends. You also need to occasionally soft-reset the n30

Acer n 30 doesn't make phone calls

do you want to use the N30 over WAP/GPRS, dial-up land land line or a GSM modem. The N30 does not have any kind of modem or cellular capability built-in, only 'blue tooth' so depending on your requirements you will have to obtain a sutable external device. You are not compelled to use a mobilephone hand set though.

Has anyone been able to sync an E-100 using the infrared port with a Windows 2000 laptop?

You might find it slow but it very definitely works. Make sure that in the windows system setup com1 is assigned to th IR hardware & not the serial port (9 pin) hardware.
