Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5517 and all of a sudden, the keyboard will stop working. The touch pad works fine but nothing on the keyboard (nothing! the letters, numbers, hotkeys) will work. Can anyone explain to me what's going on?

With an Acer, most likely the keyboard went out or the ribbon cable from the motherbaord came loose. The touchpad and keyboard are separate units so will work independent of each other. It's a simple replacement.

I have an Acer Aspire 5517. Just the other day, my touchpad and keyboard stopped working. What do I do?


1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.

2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.

3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it

4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.

Thanks.Have a great day.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

Unable to use touch pad....rt clk and slide key


If the laptop is that new, the problem is probably the touch pad "disable" button. Look for a small button just above or near the touch pad and make sure the touch pad is not turned off. If you cannot find the disable button, look in your user manual for the touch pad disable.
