Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an ACER Aspire 5600 laptop. The keyboard or mouse will not respond or function (apart from F2 and Alt/F10 which work intermittently). A remote mouse works but a remote keyboard does not. I have restored the laptop to its factory settings but still no keyboard or mouse. The only time that the keyboard worked was when I was tying in the details to restore the factory settings.

Acer aspire 500 will not power up. I have tried taking out the battery plus alt f10, f2 and f8, any suggestions?


Does it look as if the computer is working, but it just the display that not working?
Try tapping the keyboard for sounds.

If so it may be the LCD screen is at fault, not the computer.

Factory reset without using a disk and ALT + F10 doesnt work


his MIGHT work:

1. Click "Start," "Turn Off Computer" and then "Restart", if it is on. If your computer is off, turn it on by pressing the power button above the keyboard.
2. Press the "F2" function key on your computer's keyboard to enter the BIOS utility.
3. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Main." Confirm that the "D2D Recovery" is "Enabled." If the D2D option is "Disabled," scroll down to the option using the down arrow key. Press "Enter" to change the option to "Enabled."
4. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Exit." The "Exit Saving Changes" option will be highlighted. Press "Enter" to save the settings and exit the BIOS utility. Your Acer Aspire will restart.
Reformatting the Acer Aspire
1. Press the "ALT" and "F10" keys together while your computer is restarting and the Acer logo is showing to enter the Acer Aspire's reformatting utility.
2. Follow the on-screen prompts. Your laptop's hard drive will reformat and the original applications will be reinstalled. Your computer will restart after the reformatting process is complete.
3. Enter your name and other personal information when prompted during the Windows operating system setup process.

Have an Acer 5100 Aspire. Keyboard, touchpad both not working. If I hold down Alt+Tab+F10 while powering up the laptop will keep the computer from booting up, but nothing else. I have tried USB keyboard...


Do one thing performing the recovery option by ALT+F10 and restore your system to factory default

before that you take backup with the important data

My mouse pad doesnt work and my login screen is froze


Hey,

This is a common fault in the acer aspire 5000 series.

Your keyboard and mouse are no longer functioning? Does usb keyboard work?

when you turn the computer on and it says on the corner of the screen to press f2 or this button to enter setup, are you able to enter setup?

If not, then you have a bigger problem on the laptop.

do you still have warranty on it?
