Re: keyboard

I suggest you swapout the keyboard with one you know works right. If the keyboard works with the Acer than the other is defective. It wouldn't hurt to unplug & reseat your current keyboard just to make sure its connected correctly.

I play 2 beta games on facebook, and lately they stop at the loading screen

Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'

A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

HL-DT-ST DVD +-RW GSA-H21N ATA Device is not working gives a code 10....tried for new drivers was all updated..tried to uninstall and reboot then reinstall nada. This is a acer comp.

Right click on “Computer” or “My Computer” in XP. Select Manage and then on the right side select device manager. On the left if you see a yellow exclamation mark next to your drive and were getting any of the above error codes then we have a simple fix.
Go ahead and right click on the CD or DVD drive that has a yellow exclamation mark next to it and select delete or remove.

try to search:


Now that you are at the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Folder on the right side you will see several entries. right Click and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters. These will be remade once you reboot.

This will try to look for the drivers again..

New ACER ASX3200/8450 Desktop PC DVD/CD not woking

Either the drive is faulty (yes, they fail right from new more often than you would think), or the master slave jumper may not be set correctly on the back of the drive. If the PC came fully assembled, I would take it back and get the tech to check it. If you setup the hardware side of it yourself, check that the jumper is correct for the master/ slave situtation of the drive and make sure the cables are pressed in firmly.

Just purchased an Acer Veriton M464 recently. The keyboard musnt be confifigured properly as some of the buttons are mixed up and the right hand side number keys dont work! What can i do?

I'd say unplug the keyboard, boot the computer without the keyboard, then use the windows key to shut it down, then plug it in and turn it back on, if it continues to do the same thing you can look for a secondary program running that handles the keyboard and see if it has a configuration option. If none of these things seem helpful, look in the bios, see if there is something funky in there that handles keyboard functions. If all else fails, purchase a cheezy keyboard from best buy and try that, if it works properly then u know it's the keyboard, if it doesn't, return the entire system as it could be a malfunction with the "bios" basic input output system that is not translating information properly.

Just a fyi, I'd return it anyway and get a dell.

I have till t 500 casio suddnly stop working prodict keys main left hand side 12345678910 are working

Hi. I assume you mean a TK-T500. The model you gave seems incomplete.
Do the flat buttons give a beep when pressed? Is the menu sheet holder still on the same side it always was? (there is a number at the bottom of the holder. This must be showing the same number as it did when working).
If nothing happens at all when you press them, then the membrane inside the keyboard has usually suffered liquid damage. The keyboard will need to be taken apart and soaked if this is the case. Look under the holder and see if you can see any signs of liquid.

My logitech keyboard won't let me type the pound sign 0r the @ symbol

hi there
it sounds like your keyboard is set to an american style layout.
if the @ key shows up as a " mark and vice versa then you just go to the blue bar at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side you will see the letters EN double click on it and the option to change from english us to english uk will be there. change to english uk and then remove the us version completely as it can default back to it, restart your machine and you should be o.k.
