    some of the keys, the e,r,d,s,2, keys are the ones that either repeat or not work at all, the laptop just bleeps on a cold boot but as soon as i touch one of the keys it boots, the right click +double tap functions dont work until its finished booting then i have to touch any key at all then its ok until the e or r keys are touched then they just keep repeating. i know this as i opened a notebook txt and watched the letters repeating... please note this is a LAPTOP so replacing it isnt very viable.
    thanx guys for any useful tips.

Make sure that you have the correct regional settings in the control panel, local settings, if this is right then it could be that you have an english version keyboard so you can set the region settings in the same place via the control panel to uk then try and adjust the region to a custom set up.

Take care

No monitor or keyboard, fan is loud, Monitor puts up th no input message but wont turn on, keyboard lights are not on either


> fan is loud

When you first turn the computer on, the full runs at 100%, until the motherboard's "POST" (Power On Self Test) procedure has checked all the hardware, and "beeped" the speaker just once.

So, no "beep" (or multiple "beeps") and the 100% speed of the fan suggest a hardware problem with your motherboard.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

When I turn on my acer, a loud beeping sound continues until I shut it off. What happened?


Those beeping noises are called, simply enough, a Beep Code. The continuous tone usually means that your computer has a bad memory stick (or multiple bad sticks). They will need to be replaced.

If the computer is under 1 year old, you can get this done for free under your manufacturer's warranty. Otherwise, the new memory will cost usually a minimum of $50, depending on where you buy it.

My acer wont load when i first turn on, or load,gives 2 loud beep


Sounds like the hard drive is going bad. Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop behaves like that if it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad. If it still does then it could be a motherboard problem.. With it making those beeping noises when you first turn it on, they keyboard could be going bad because that would make a laptop start beeping like that as well.

Built in Mic doesn't work


OK you need to install the Audio manager software, and the software that controls those buttons. Go to the web site and get them and install, after you do, all buttons will work, and you will be able to access the Mic. If you go to sounds in control panel. and click SOUND, then RECORDING you should find controls there? You must configure it before it will work. It still may work without audio manager installed, the buttons will not, you need this.

Black screen!


It sounds like a Back light failure. A good computer shop should be able to repair it. Also could be a screen failure. a lot of work for those who have not worked on these before. but its fixable!! find a local good shop :)

Computer turns on, but won't work afterwords


Hi,

Nev, the two loud beeping sound of the system when turning it on could be a problem with the memory or the system board.

Try disconnecting the power and take out the battery, then press and hold the power button for 5 seconds then look for the memory comparment and reseat it.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
