Dear npjay,

Please connect a usb keyboard at one of the laptop's port. This will most likely (and hopefully) trigger windows installation to use this one.

    Forgot to mention the following info,

    When the installation is finished you can remove the usb keyboard and reboot. Windows will most likely find new hardware at startup - which will be your keyboard.

    If the keyboard is not found I should start thinking that something is hardware related.

    Regards

Can't install Windows XP to Aspire One AO725 netbook


Yes you can't install Win xp in this PC, Even if you want to install then you have to down grade Your laptop BIOS and can only be install WIN XP SP3. But i will not suggest you to do that because your laptop is design for WIN 7 not for WIN XP.

Acer Aspire 5571 AWXMi Keyboard not working in 2003 Server


it might not be a problem with the software.

With the power out I would try taking the keyboard out and reseating the keyboard into its slot.

Turn on the laptop and press F2 to see if you can go into the BIOS. If you can then you know your keyboard is working. If you can't get into the BIOS then you know the keyboard is defective and will have to be replaced.

If you can get into the BIOS also make sure to get out and let the laptop reboot, if you cant do the ctrl alt del to get to the login screen then you know its a Operating system problem cause it works for the BIOS but not for the OS.

Hope this helps cause now you know how to tell if its either software or hardware related.

TRYING TO INSTALL WINDOWS XP ON ACER ASPIER 3680


Your problem is that XP does not recognize the SATA drive.Here is a link for the Acer 5315 that explains what you need to do for XP to see the drive http://soulpass.com/2007/11/10/installing-windows-xp-professional-sp2-on-acer-aspire-5315-2153-laptop/
Here is a link to the XP drivers that you will need http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html The Intel drivers from the first link should work with your laptop
If you don't have a USB floppy drive you will need to create your own CD with Nlite http://www.nliteos.com/
Have installed XP on my daughters 3680 so it can be done.

USB Midi Controller


the 'Add New Hardware Wizard' and force it to install the non-certified M-Audio drivers that were supposedly installed when running the M-Audio installer. (Skip internet search, and browse to M-Audio folder in Program files, it will eventually find them.) There are two M-Audio USB drivers that need to be 'forced' via New Hardware Wizard. But Windows thinks its drivers are a better match and even though 'device is working properly' it doesn't get recognized in your software. replaced them with the 2 USB ones from M-Audio, DAW finally recognized the keyboard. I even went through regedit to clean up all the M-Audio stuff so I could get a fresh install.

Good Luck you can do this /Have a great Sunday and a safe one.

Acer notebook 3002


I would try plugging an external keyboard or mouse in to see if that works. If it does, either the keyboard/mouse (2 in 1 on laptops) drivers are invalid in which case you can go to http://support.acer.com and download the keyboard/mouse drivers and/or utility. Otherwise, most likely the keyboard/mouse hardware is the porblem. In which case either the cable connecting it to the rest of the laptop is loose or more likely the entire keyboard/mouse device is fried. I suggest contacting the manufacturer (Acer) and if your laptop is still under warranty get them to replace it; if not buy it. -The Tech Guy
