Try hitting the S key and check for clips, staples, lint, food, fingernails or other debris that may be holding it down, if you can, pry off the key and check it as well, carefully blow on it.

Model acer travelmate 4000 nodisplay on lcd and external monitor


You say the trouble is with the keyboard. Can you attach an external keyboard via USB and see if you can push Fn key with F5 (I think it is the F5 key - try Fn with others - keep Fn pressed and repeatedly press the F5 or F6 etc.) several times to see if the screen toggles between LCD and external monitor. For this to work you will have to restart the computer after attaching the external keyboard. Press the start button until the computer goes off, and press again to restart.

Itf you ascertain that the trouble is with the 99.N7082.01D, make sure to try to fit it in correctly, or perhaps the Fn key has some dust or liquid in it so it does not function. Then you have to try to clean it from the inside after you disassemble.

SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY


Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Phantom 'd' key


Thespian,
There are only two reasons, that I know of, that would cause this problem. Either the keyboard or the keyboard interface chip on the motherboard. Of the two, I would suspect the keyboard more. Even though you have had the keyboard checked out, I'd suggest doing a double check. It could be the "D" key mechanism itself, the associated keyboard circuitry, the keyboard cable or the cable connector.
I don't remember, right off hand, does this model have a way of connecting an external keyboard? If so, try that. If it works, you've just verified 95% of the motherboard as being OK.
The ideal way of checking out a problem would be to swap out the keyboard from a similar unit, but would imagine you would have already tried that if you had access to one. If you are absolutely sure that the keyboard is OK, then the only choice that you have is to replace the motherboard. OH! One other thing to check might be the connector on the motherboard. Look at it very closely to insure that there is no foreign material in it and that all of the contacts are uniformly formed and lined up.

If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
If you can add anything else that might help, or have any questions, please ask!

Keyboard not working on acer travelmate 2350


it could be the sensors are damaged under the keys, but hopefully its just the driver. Right click on my computer icon and click properties and then the hardware tab, then device manager and look down the list for keyboard. Click the + sign and then right click on your keyboard under that and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and it will reinstall itself and hopfully work as it should do, if not then the keyboard itself is damaged in some way.
