KEYBOARD HOT KEY ISSUES SCREEN CHANGING VIDEO SETTINGS..??? HELP

AFTER 2 YEARS ALL OF A SUDDEN MY WIFE HAS HAD THIS TROUBLE.
I NOTICED LIGHT UNDER F10 LIGHT AND I FIGURED OUT THE "FN" BUTTON AND TURNED THE LIGHT OFF THEN THE LIGHT UNDER F11 STARTED FLASHING AND IS INTERMITNET NOW. THE PROBLEM IS THE SPACE BAR AND IT CHANGES VIDEO SETTINGS AND MOST OF THE KEYBOARD IS NOT FUNTIONING CORRECTLY.

IS THIS A MACRO SETTING? OR WHAT COULD IT BE I AM USEING A USB KEYBOARD NOW. I AM NOT AN I.T. GUY AND CAN'T SEEM TO CORRECT THE KEYBOARD I DO NOT THINK IT IS KEYBOARD FAILURE RATHER THAN A SETTING THAT HAS GONE ASTRAY.
PLEASE HELP
THANK
SCOTT

    this is my first laptop.

    are keyboard failures common as it might be with desktops and cheap keyboards?

    do i fix my laptop keyboard or does it just become a desktop unit now with seperate keyboard and mouse?



    should i anticipate if the keyboard failed that i would have other failures in this unit a should prepare for that.

    i have just read something in the user manual pdf on page 159 and on called "fn-esse" keyboarding it looks to me if you like to type like texting it turns your keyboard in to special mode. when i get home i will try to read farter and turn it off. right now i can't type most keys and those f10 f11 lights would flash and the space bar keeps blacking out the screen while switching the video setting. i think my wife just turned something on that i ca't seem to turn off.

    Does this happen in safe-mode too (Assuming you are windows user here)

  • Biju Thomas Oct 16, 2013

    Tap F8, when the system is starting up... Will get to a menu choice that will have 'safe mode', chose that... the screen / colors will look lower resolution, but all applications should work. Let me know how it goes, before we sort the issue... If you face the issue in safe-mode, its beyond the OS (mostly)

My boot priority order changed now my computer wont go to my desktop


Hi!
Sorry, I hope I was not too late. You can fix priority order issue by restoring the default value of BIOS. You can do that by doing the steps below:
1. Reboot your Acer Aspire 5315 notebook.
2. Wait about 30 seconds until you see the Acer logo on your laptop screen.
3. Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the Acer Aspire 5315 laptop BIOS menu.
4. Select the BIOS option "Load Default Setting" using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Then press "Enter."
5. Press the "F10" key to save the BIOS that is reset to the factory default settings.
Hope this helps.

Spilled a drink on my keyboard and now 2 lights appear under the F10 and F11 key. when i turn it on it goes to a boot screen and will not budge. the one time i got it to boot properly i couldn't log in...


Hello,

Unfortunately, the keyboard is most-likely shot. For an immediate (possible) solution is to connect an external keyboard. This might allow you to boot the system but it depends on how much damage the liquid did.

Replacement keyboard are fairly inexpensive (probably under $50) and usually fairly easy to replace as long as you have a basic understanding of computer hardware.

To get pricing on keyboards simply do a search by typing the laptop number " L305-S5907" and and the word "keyboard"

I do hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!!

Regards

How do you turn the screen where it will be lighter


Laptops usually do not have dial buttons like normal monitors where you can manually change the brightness with a flick of a switch. However, to replace this, brightness control is usually put onto the keyboard. Try this:

1. Look at your keyboard and look for keys that look like they are marked to perform brightness/contrast control. These are usually symbols written in the F9, F10 and F11 keys but may vary for different manufacturers

2. These keys are usually accessed using another key (the Fn Key). Therefore, while pressing the Fn Key, click on the F9/F10/F11 buttons to play with the brightness control settings

Pavillion laptop is not booting.


Try to boot the notebook with F8 Key. (Safe Mode)

Also try to go into the BIOS setting and change there --> Power and Boot Priority.

For BIOS try: ESC, DEL or F2 keys.

My light under the f10 turns on for not reason and then 0 will start going in all of my username or passwork or whenever I type. Thanks for help Steve


That commonly happens when something a key is stuck. as you are having an issue with two keys the problem is likely dirt or moisture in the keyboard itself. as the f10 and 0 keys are near eachother and also near the edge of the keyboard I am leaning towards something being in the membraine of the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards tend to be spot welded and or glued making them impossable to take apart and clean properly. if you cant get it cleaned with compressed air you would be best to find a replacement keyboard from the original manufacturer or an otherwise broken laptop from ebay.
