Question about Acer TravelMate 2500 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an acer Travelmate 2500

I have just installed a standard layout keyboard with a number pad on the far right.
when i remove the usb keyboard, the Std built in keyboard will not function propely, it seams that it does not have the right config for the "Fn" button.

every button that has a "second function" it defalts to using the second function instead of the qwerty layout.

any ideas?

My acer travelmate 2500 overheats when playing games


The cooling on the Acer Travelmate 2500 is worse than most because it contains thin copper heatsink fins which grab the dust as it flies past. Great for getting rid of heat; terrible for getting rid of dust.

prise off the two corner pieces that cover the hinge for the screen. Underneath there are two screws. Remove these, then peel away the keyboard and the plastic covering. There you will see the fan system. Four screws (on springs - careful) will have this away but be aware of the power cable which is tucked in behind a piece of metal. At all times be careful not to damage the keyboard ribbon cable which is usually pretty fragile.

Another few screws (tiny ones) will have the top of the fan off then you can clean and put it all back together. The result: a laptop that actually blows air through and cools what it should.
Kindly rate if this helped Regards

Key board problem


It would seem that the keyboard may be defective. It is a fairly standard keyboard layout, so SHIFT-2 should produce the @ sign. It looks to be a fairly cheap fix:

I spilt coffee on my laptop. The keyboard is not working


usually laptop keyboard and touch pad have a protecting cover for situations like this, but would depends on how much, how far and how long the liquid stayed on the keyboard and pads surface.

one thing to check though.

remove again the keyboard of the book and check the keyboard cable going to the board if its tightly fix, same with all other connectors.

if still the same problem...then the keyboard is fried.
