Usually this means you are having a critical keyboard error. if its still under warentee then take it back but if not then just look for another keyboard for that model on ebay.
should be able to get one for no more than £20.00

Cannot connect acer pc to tv


The PC and the TV need to have the same kind of connection such as VGA or HDMI. If not you will need some type of converter between the two to make them compatible. Once you have them connected set the TV's input to PC, Computer or HDMI if you use the HDMI connection. Reboot the computer and see if the image appears on the TV. If not you can hit the FN Function key on the computer + the F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the External Display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit might have CRT/LCD on it or it might have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that corresponds to the external display to toggle the display between the computer, the tv or show it on both the tv and the computer.

If the keyboard doesn't have a Fn key often the Scroll Lock key is used, try Scr Lk + Down arrow to dim the display.
The manual indicates and Fn Key to the right of the Left Alt Key but that doesn't mean you have that keyboard eitther

Using acer aspire 5920 and touchpad has stopped working since installing usb optical mouse


Press Fn + F7 at the same time to activate and deactivate the touchpad.

The Fn key, or function key, can be used to activate or deactivate a number of functions depending on what F-key it is pressed with.

Lcd connection


Hi,

It would be uncommon for a laptop not to have a function key, Fn. This would be normally located somewhere bottom left of the keyboard often after the CTRL key and/or before the Windows key. Further, it is often required to press the Fn key + F? key where the F? would be one of the F keys with the small monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I cant get the keyboard letters to work that have the blue numbers on them without pushing the fn blue button in the bottom row at the same time


that is how the function keys on some keyboards work. Other keyboards have a key that says Fmode. When this is pressed then the blue keys will work all the time. Other than that the Fn key needs to be pressed at the same time as the function key you are using.
