Travelmate 2310 keyboard and touchpad problem

My keyboard and touchpad does not respond. But when I remove the battery and use the power adapter alone, they work. Perhaps I need to replace the battery. In the meantime, is there something I could do?

Boot up the system (without the battery).
When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies *
Wait till the systems shuts down by itself.
Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine.
Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay.
You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.

CMOS battery is bad

Hi there,
Replacing CMOS battery in Acer TravelMate 529TXV step by step: 1. remove all power sources (unplug cable, remove battery) 2. remove keyboard (carefully!!) by unsnapping it at the snaps upper and lower edge 3. in central part you see a metal cover mounted with 2 screws - unscrew those and slide the cower slightly downward (in the direction of the touchpad) to remove it. 4. You can now see a small battery, that is now very easy to remove. Take it to a nearest battery shop, buy one with EXACTLY THE SAME PARAMETERS! and reverse the whole process.

While charging my laptop , mouse pointer cant work and while it. why?

Hi avinamit,

I saw your question and I think I can help you with your concern.

you mentioned that when you connect your charger/Adaptor tp you laptop that the touchpad will not respond or move, I believe that your machine may be experiencing a small amount of ground from the adaptor to the touchpad, here is what we need to do,

  • First we need to turn your Laptop OFF
  • Once turned Off, remove the battery from your Laptop and unhook/remove the AC adapter/Charger as well.
  • Once the Battery and the Adapter is remove from the system, press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds this will drain any power left in the system, by doing this we will be starting the machine up with a new set of power coming from the Charger.
  • Once the power is drained is done connect the Adapter back to the machine and the battery try to power your system ON and check if the touch pad will work now with the adapter connected to your Laptop.
this may help you with your concern about the touch pad not responding when the charger is conencted, but still if the issue still exists then most probably the machine is grounded from the charger to the motherboard thus causing malfunction to some of your system devices.

thanks I hope this helps.

Acer 2310 travelmate, power button will not go on. There is no sound of a fan. It is in effect dead. Tried different outlet with no improvement. Unplugged everything and replugged it in.

ok, if there is no indecation that there is any power, I mean even no instant flash when you first try turning it on... sometime the power plug in the back gets loose inside. or the power adapter dies... I would try gently weglling the power plug while looking at the lights if anything happen then it is the plug. if nothing then I would try to test the adapter either by a multimeter or borrowing another adapter and seeing what happend... also try disconnecting the power and take the battery out, wait few seconds then put the battery back, then the adapter (all while looking at the lights) then try again.. still if nothing then it maybe the main board itself... best of luck

Touchpad is not responding and keyboard

Try shutting down the device and taking out the battery for 10ish seconds. Reinsert it, and power up your laptop. Sometimes this method takes 2 tries, but usually corrects the power/allotment conflicts keyboards and touchpads have with HP motherboards.
