U r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..

if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..
hope it'll work..

better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

Hi:
A better solution is to just swap out the keyboard. They are reasonably inexpensive on ebay, about $15, and are not hard to change!

What version of windows are you running? If you hit the Windows Key (typically between the ctrl and alt keys) + P you can cycle through the display modes. You may have it set to computer only, however Win Key + P will change the mode. Try setting ti to Duplicate, Extend, or Projector only.

Please try these steps:
1. Turn on the computer, while it's loading, tap the F2 key to access BIOS. You may also try F10 if F2 is not working. 2. Go to Security, enter the password then change password. Do not type anything on the new password just press enter. 3. Save the changes.

Some liquid was spilt on the key board an the side of my acer aspire one notebook, how do i disasemble and clean it so i can get it back to working, or is that even possible?


You can remove the keyboard and clean any liquid under it. ( The keyboard is one-piece ... and you may not be able to clean easily under each key.)
Review the first few steps to "upgrade the RAM" ... it describes how to remove the keyboard... http://forums.redflagdeals.com/acer-aspire-one-upgrades-how-609546/

Check out the series of pictures (at least the 1st 3) and accompanying instructions to do this ... http://s344.photobucket.com/albums/p322/bb320/

I have no recovery cd´s.And the erecovery pressing ALT F10,doesn´t work. I´m not able to do anything with the computer because it just goes black(Acer Aspire 5920G)


Contact ACER -- they will sell you ($30?) a replacement set of Recovery CDs. Or, since your computer has a valid "authentic" Microsoft sticker, with a 25-key license-key, you can install Windows from any "retail" version of XP, and enter your license-key.
After installing, you may have to go to ACER's web-site,
to download hardware-specific device-drivers and install them,
since the "generic" Windows CD-ROM will not have those drivers.
Also, access http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
and click "custom" and later "hardware" to see if the "missing"
device-drivers can be downloaded via Windows Update.

Keyboard issues


Try reseating the notebook keyboard into its slot properly.

If that doesn't work any certain keys are only working before you get into windows then that tells me the kids may have spilt liquid onto the keyboad. As far as the usb ports recognizing an external keyaboard and an external mouse. it should be able to do that.

If the usb ports are acting funky then the kids may have spilt water onto the keyboard and the liquid fell into the motherboard. Try going into the BIOS and resetting defaults and see if that makes a difference as well and if it doesn't then the keyboard and motherboard may be faulty.

If you need any more help, let me know and I'll help you further.

Keyboard not working


sounds like the liquid did its damage to the motherboard. you could try removing the keyboard and cleaning the inside out using a magnifying glass and some q-tips but does not sound good my friend. i suggest you take it in to a repair shop nearby and have then do a thorough inspection but be prepared to have to replace the motherboard if it has damaged or corroded solder joints


good luck!
