How to disable Laptop battery?

My Laptop battery is basically dead, because of this it makes it so that my keyboard and touchpad don't work on start up. I think that this is a common problem with acers.

I can make my laptop work by simply removing the battery. The problem is that I don't want to leave the battery out on a permanent basis to avoid damage to the laptop and I don't want to get a new battery because.... I'm cheap! and I usually keep my laptop on A/C power anyway.

Is it possible to keep the battery in but make it so that it doesn't try and charge?.... if its not a stupid question.

    Here is a link to another person who has the same problem. It is the main battery that is the problem, its been a bit iffy for a while because to wouldn't hold much of a charge before this problem occurred.

    I think that it is somehow stealing the power from the keyboard at start-up in order to charge, at the moment I remove the battery when I want to boot my laptop and then put the battery back in after a little wile. I am amusing that the problem occurs at start up because that is when large amount of power is being used.

    Basically I am getting fed up of pulling my battery out and prating around with it and I am worried that after a long period of doing this would damage my laptop (even further lol). What I want to know is if there is some setting that I can change to stop the laptop for using the main battery.

Touchpad not active


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Fn-F9 not working


From the description the laptop keyboard needs changing, check www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to keyboard, but I would use external keyboard first to verify. To disable the touchpad go into device manager, check list and click on the left box, right click and highlight disable, press ok or apply.

Hi jilglh...
Try this method

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

Inspiron Keyboard Jumps Around


Install the latest touchpad driver from support.dell.com

There is a setting in the touchpad tab of the mouse driver. Either Enable PalmCheck or Disable touchpad when typing (Depends on Synaptics or Alps drive I believe)

With palmcheck enabled, the touchpad is disabled when typing

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

Thanks for helping, murpium and poplock, but...


Dear fix-the-prob Unfortunately there is no magic key to enable you to do this. Computers do not have 20 backup systems like airplanes. Which would be nice but it would cost like one too! You have two options though to solve this,
  1. Firstly either change the laptop’s keyboard (which is a bad solution if the keyboard is fine and the problem is actually the motherboard)
  2. Second is to find any USB keyboard (easy these days) plug it in an USB port at the side of the laptop. The bios is forced to see this keyboard instead of the laptop’s.

Might seem ovious but you may want to try Acer support and look for a new Driver.. Also check under Control Panel...Mouse options... and also check device profiles to make sure windows isn't loading a "docked profile which may disable touchpad and laptop keybaord use.
