The computer implays hotkeys or key combination to access most of the compurter's controls like screen brightness, volume, and BIOS utility.
To activate hotkeys, press and hold the <fn> key before pressing the other key in the hotkey combination. All of these keys should be in "blue" For example, <fn> + <F7> turns your touchpad off & on.

You know I've had my Acer for a year. I got it in Februrary of 2007. I had it for about a month and a half before the keyboard, then the mouse, then all of the usb ports went out. I sent it back and it took them a little over a month to fix it. THEN!!! they sent it back to me in worse condition!! I was getting the blue screen of death! Straight white and black lines were coming down my screen. I sent it off again they sent it back to me and it worked for a while and then the keyboard and mouse went out again and they told me they had to change out the whole motherboard! Well I'm now stuck with a laptop that I've never even gotten to really use! With no Warranty left! With a little research I found out this is a known issue with the acer laptops! I took it in for a a few quotes on what it'd cost me to fix it I've decided to just sell it on ebay! I can sell it for parts except for of course the keyboard mouse and usb ports..

I have the same problem. Keyboard and Mouse do not work from the boot the first second of the boot sequence so I can't even enter BIOS.
