1) Check the settings of your anti-virus program. A lot of times an anti-virus program will not let a program download.

2) The main thing with Adobe Flash Player, is that it will NOT install a new version of Flash Player; with an old version present.

And it will NOT automatically delete the old version.

Use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool.
Then go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download AND install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool,

Go down to the bottom of the page, where it states in bold print -
Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller
Click on the blue - Tech note - in the paragraph.

Takes you to here,

Scroll down to -
1. Download the uninstaller for Flash Player
Click on the blue - uninstaller - underneath the above heading. [Uninstaller (674KB) ]

A small window will come up. Click on Save File.
A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.

When Windows loads back up again, go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, download and install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

You got a conflict on your DNS protocol you need to go into your 'command prompt' settings (right click start and click on command prompt ) and enter 'clear DNS' and see if that works.

Go into the device manager and remove the camera. Then scan for hardware changes. It will find the camera and load the required drivers. If, for some reason, it finds the camera but not the drivers, go to the Acer webpage for your laptop and download the drivers. When you install them, just point to that file.

there is a similar post (ACER x223w monitor) who describes somewhat the same issue.
Do you have some child safety feature enabled?

Usually in my experience most laptop keyboards are disposable. I have 2 suggestions for you.
1. buy a new same brand keyboard.
2. remove the flex connector, then use an external usb keyboard, or a bluetooth wireless keyboard.

hope it helps your problem.

If the computer doesn't power on what-so-ever, it may be your power ribbon. I have the same issue with my Dell Inspiron 15.

The power ribbon on your motherboard connects to the power button on your laptop which obviously turns on your computer.

That may have been damaged. I suggest taking apart your computer and trying to find out the issue from the inside. (Or, if you don't know how turn it in to a technician.)

I have actually experienced this before and surprisingly, it turned out to be a hardware fault with my built-in wireless device. I had to resort eventually to one of those USB plug-in wifi dongles. They cost less than ten bucks, and if you don't need the range, come in "nano" sizes that protrude less than half an inch when installed. Do disable the internal wifi device, either in device manager or better still, in the bios if using this solution.
