Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

2 Answers

Computer going crazy computer just "freaks out" occasionaly sometimes like when im using it. Like i'll be typing somthing and the little 'typing line' would just jump back where the crusor is sitting and i would start typing at that point. And then sometimes it like almost freezes and then like every page that i had opened in the last 5 mins would start popping back up and closing and then screen would start flashing...and the crusor would start flashing and i would eventualy have to 'ctrl,alt,del' it and restart the computer to fix it. And I would lose everything that I was working on at that moment. Its really annoying. I called the customer support line and they sent me some 'recovery disks' to run on it, but im kinda skeptical about doing that because then i'll lose EVERYTHING on it, and the computer will go back to its orginal configuration like it was when it came from the manufacturer. Is there any other option to fix this problem or is this the only option i have?? Please advise..

Re: computer going crazy

Actually most recover disks give options so that it can fix problems like install drivers without wiping the drive and starting over you just have to get the command codes for this from the manufacturer. especially if its windows by microsoft.

Some keys on keyboard not working on my acer aspire 5253-B2692

Im going to assume you didn't spill anything on the keyboard here...The best solution for you is to take the keyboard out and reseat the ribbon cable that holds it in place. Sometimes those cables get just a little bit loose, but a little can cause a lot of trouble as you can see. Let's see how much "notepad" or some other writing program you have....type every single letter and number and see which ones you are missing. Let me know if there are any others that don't work....then we'll go through the process of taking the keyboard out and reseating it.

Hey..i have a hp probook 4420s. its mouse pad ain't working due to which i have to use an external mouse. please tell me how to fix this problem.

First, make sure your trackpad button is enabled... if that isn't the problem, then go to your device manager and check that there isn't a driver issue, if there is you'll see a little yellow triangle next to the category "Mice and other pointing devices".
If there is an issue, highlight your touchpad, then right click and choose "Uninstall Driver".

After the driver is uninstalled, go to your start menu and shut down the computer, then restart it and the new driver should automatically reload into the system.

If its not a driver issue, then its the touchpad itself and you'll have to contact a technician for repair/replacement.

Jumping cursor

This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.

The fan kicks in because your processors temperature gets above a threshold, and this usually happens when your computer is under heavy load. And when your computer is under heavy load, the computer will most likely be a little slow. Thus the fan speed can only help your computer; you don't want to change anything there.
I'm a little perplexed about your mouse problem, post back with more details.
