Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard

My keyboard doesn't work

Only a few keys on my keyboard work. I've had to plug in a USB keyboard which is a bit cumbersome. Any ideas much appreciated! It's a new laptop and I think my son may have been a bit heavy handed on it recently.

If it really is "new", then it probably is still under "warranty". Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Keyboard doesn't work


Does your laptop work when you plug in a USB keyboard? When you startup the machine, do the keys respond (depending on your laptop, push the key to get into the system BIOS). If it allows you to get into the system BIOS, then it maybe a software issue.

Keyboard problem & it doesn't work prefect


If the keyboard has a round purple connector, power down the computer then unplug and then plug in the keyboard. Power on the computer. If it works your done if it doesn't replace the keyboard. If this is a USB keyboard, with the computer on, unplug and plug in the keyboard if it works great, if it still isn't working replace the keyboard. NOTE if this is a multi functional keyboard (special keys at the top) make sure you install the driver and any software associated with the keyboard.

How do I connect this keyboard to the computer


Keyboards connect several ways. Older systems use a PS/2 connector (round) that plugs into the purple/gray jack on the back of the computer. The mouse plugs into the green jack next to it.
If you have a USB keyboard, it plugs into any USB slot.
PS/2 connections must be made with the computer off. USB connections work any time. If one slot doesn't work, try another.
If the keyboard doesn't work, try another.

When I try to plug in an external Mouse my Acer Aspire One is asking me to download hidusb.sys from the XP Home Edtion Service Pack 3 CD?


I'll assume your touchpad and built-in mouse are not working, hence your need for the USB mouse. If the touch pad and built-in mouse are working but you find them awkward to use (another reason some users connect USB mice to notebooks), then you might find it easier to briefly persevere and use the touchpad and built-in mouse for only a few seconds just to complete the simple steps outlined below. If not, the keyboard method detailed below is less efficient and more cumbersome but equally effective.
This driver that is being requested is already built-in to Windows. Use the TAB and down or up arrows keys on your keyboard to move the cursor to the button you want to activate -> press the ENTER key to activate the button that the cursor has settled on keys on your Click Next -> No (to alternative search methods) -> search the whole computer for the driver -> next -> finish -> if your USB mouse does not work straight away, press the windows logo key bottom left of your keyboard -> the use the keyboard arrow keys to move once up and then left to the shutdown button -> press ENTER -> use the arrow keys to move the cursor to RESTART -> press ENTER.

My laptop has no sound yet I have no money to purchase a sound driver. can I get a free one


Laptop's sound can fail to work for a couple of reasons:

(1) the sound drivers are not properly installed - as far as I know, every computer manufacturer's web site will allow you to download their hardware drivers for free. Hope you've already done that.

(2) the sound hardware in the laptop are either disconnected or failed - a small number of laptops actually use separate sound cards (instead of integrating the audio hardware on the main board). Hopefully you've already checked that, too.

(3) the audio output jack (headphone) is damaged - in which case the sound hardware is functioning 100%, but there's no sound produced due to a shorted jack.

That being said, if it's neither of the above, the cheapest means of getting some basic sound to a muted laptop would be a USB sound card and a set of external laptop speakers. If it sounds elaborate and expensive, I assure you it's not. Assuming you're running Windows (hopefully XP or newer), you can buy a USB sound card on eBay for around $2 and pay about the same price for a cheap set of cheesy laptop speakers - plug the USB sound card into a working USB port, plug the speakers into the USB sound card, it's plug and play, and ... viola - you'll get $4 worth of cheap sound. It's a bit cumbersome but it's a cheap workaround that I've done before when a laptop went mute and I had only a shoestring budget to work with...

If you are using a usb hub disconnect it completely and try connecting your Western Digital directly to a usb port on your laptop. If that doesn't work try booting into safe mode and see if it shows up then. If it works in safe mode a recent update to your virus program or another program could be blocking it. Hope I was of some help , Thanks for using FixYa

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.
