Question about Acer Aspire T310 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work

I got my computer off a friend and once I set it up, it only goes as far as the Green Acer screen which on the right bottom corner says:
Del: Start Set up F12: Boot Manual
But my keyboard and mouse won't work so I can't any further. Their both USB and I've tried them in all ports but nothing. Thing in when I went to pick it up, it was already set up and the Mouse was working. Not sure about the keyboard...

Does anyone know who to help?? Its got Windows 2003 installed..

Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.

SOURCE: Keyboard and mouse not working

Hi,

Just passing by, and i saw your concern about your pc.

sounds like you might have a posible glitch on *********** board.
the message "start set up 12" means the mother board supporting soft ware may be encountering issue.

a simple reset on what we call BIOS might solve this.

Locate the mother board manual and look for the BIOS reset jumper, in some cases just carefully remove the battery then leave it for 2 or 5 min to tottaly reset the bios. its alittle risky cause you might break the battery holder, so go with the jumper setting. and dont forget to place it back to its original position.

Hope it helps!

It say enter f12 boot dont know what to do or how


HI Penny,
This sounds like it's telling you to press the F12 key to boot up or access the boot menu, there may be another error for it to tell you this, like missing mouse, keyboard or other item. Look on the screen for any indication of this, let me know what you find

First reattch your mouse and keyboard cable connection to cpu.
Then check if still same then open cpu cabinet.
Refix RAM memory.
When cmos cell is gone this issue occurs so change cmos cell .
Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then refix into it.
Reattach ATX power connctor from smps to motherboard.
Reattach processor and its fan.
then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
