Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Keyboard / Mouse Not Working

I ran a HD Defrag and went to bed while it was running. Apparently comp shut itself off. Next morning, booted up comp only to notice that it wasn't seeing Keybord / Mouse. Tried 3 different Keyboards / Mice.
It will boot up but I have no way of entering user password to complete boot up. Any suggestions? For time being, I had to rent a computer until this one is fixed or new one purchased (pending tax refund)

    Thank You. However, there are no PS2 connections on this particular computer. This computer only has USB connections.



    Thanks

Hi armywifeb, for a small fee you can go to Wallmart or BestBuy & buy a PS2 to USB cable for your PC This cable is a Y connector which allows you to plug both, you're PS2 mouse & PS2 keyboard into one end of the Y cable, than plug it into a free USB port. This should help you get through tax season. The link below will give you an idea of what your looking for.
(This is the part).

After tax season is over, please back up all your personal data to either a CD/DVDRW or a slave drive. You will need to format the drive & re-install windows before thinking of buying a new board.
I also suggest, not using windows to format the drive but the drive's Mfg's software tools to format, test & setup of the hard drive. (Better testing & better tools). Just find the name of the drive (Listed on a white sticker) & go to the web site of the Mfg. Download either software for a bootable floppy disk or the software tools for a bootable CD.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
If I can be of more service, just ask.

Mike

Keyboard locks on startup, mouse pad works, FN & ECS (for Standby) works


your comp is infected for sure.i`ve seen many cases where my customer`s comp is infected and they face the same problem.
make sure you have ethernet cable plugged in to your laptop so we can use safe mode with networking. shutdown your computer.on top of the keyboard you have F8 key.the moment you`ll press the power button to turn on the computer start tapping F8. advance boot up options will appear. select safe mode with networking
try restoring your comp to a previous time when it was working. if it doesn`t work don`t worry just follow the steps below.In any case you have to clean virus out of your computer.
download,install and run this software.after running the scan clean all the infections and restart your comp.

Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

Left click not working


This problem of yours has a simple solution:just change the left push to on switch.desolder the original one, get a switch from the local electronic market of the same type(if possible OR another one which will b placed correctly on d pcb and which ensures that d click works)
The problem is that the spring in d switch has lost it's physical properties,which is a aging problem.
Solder the new switch,and there u go,click click click,all working fine.

I had this problem for a very long time as well. Turns out this is an encryption issue. It's off-balance. You need to reset the encryption, and here's how:

On the LEFT side of your wireless keyboard press and hold Ctrl+Alt, and press F12, then release all three buttons. Now push the Connect button on your Wireless Receiver, then the connect button on your wireless keyboard. Now press Esc. Try it. See if it works. It did for me.
