attached a USB or PS/2 keyboard with your laptop and goto control panel and double click on add or remove software select the software which you can installed & delete it. Actually this fault reason virus or otherwise reinstall your operating system.
This usually works for most device problems. Go to the device manager and scroll down to the mice and pointing devices as well as the keyboard. If the keyboard and the touchpad are listed in the device menu, then you can right click on the device and click on update driver. Windows will search update for a fresh driver. If the devices are not listed, then go to Acer support (link below) put in the model of the laptop....Aspire > 1640Z and a list of downloads will come up. Download the drivers for the keyboard and /or touchpad. After they are downloaded, run the apps, they usually self install.
If they are listed in the device manager (device manager is in the control panel....in XP, look in the system flder under the hardware tab.) and the above fix does not work, then scroll down to them and when you right click, Hit un-install, but keep the drivers. Do this one at a time and let the system reboot after each uninstall. Windows will detect the device and load the driver for it.
A few days ago my acer laptop aspire 1640z , began to behave slower than usual when typing on the keyboard. At first I thought it was a virus, I did all the necessary scans and found none. I then thought it might be the Keyboard driver, but it wasn’t. I went into safe mode by keeping F8 down when you start the computer and select the directory service restore mode, which resets certain applications back to its original state. I found that my internet AOL connection and explore and fire fox would not connect to the net. Make sure you have a disk for AOL or setup file for fire fox saved, to reinstall the software. This seemed to work a bit but by accident, I remove the battery from my laptop and kept the power cord connect and Wow! it works even faster than before. I have also notice that my battery does not hold a charge anymore. My theory is that because the battery is in critical status when connected to laptop…. (Even though the power cord is connected), the computer thinks that its going to run out of power and wants to go into hibernation mode which slows everything down including typing on the keyboard. So before you try the safe mode option, remove the battery and use only the power cord cable and see if this solves the problem. Mine is running fine again ,but when I put battery back it slows down again. I read on the net its affecting only Acer Laptops, probably because the way the power settings software is set up for the Acers.
I don't have the diagram but i can give you direction.
1. remove the power cover first (where power button is), it might have 3 screw that hold, if there is 3 screw on the power cover, remove it first.
2. after your removed the power cover, you can see the screw that hold keyboard. remove that screw and you can remove the keyboard.
