Question about Acer Aspire 9300 Notebook
Cat sat on my keyboard, hit something, now I can't enter in 'search' or do a system restore. Just above the keypad are a half-dozen symbols. One is an 'A' in a box. Normally there is no light over it, now there is. I can't find my manual. What is this light and how do I turn it off? (On the assumption that activating the 'A' in the box is an indicator of my problem.)
ITs for turning on the CAPITAL letters on the keyboard. All you have to do is Hit on CAPS LOCK key on your keyboard and you are done. Nothing wrong with the PC/Notebook.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different
you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.
Open your internet browser, then download and install MalwareBytes and
run a Quick Scan.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:
"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and
install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the
site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not
click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui
Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or
Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a
QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in
red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text
document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text
document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED
RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it
finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your
If after the above steps you still have the problem try downloading and reinstalling the touchpad driver.
and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Toshiba
Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.
the issue still exists try Rolling your System back to a date and time
before the keyboard started acting up by running System Restore.
Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System
Restore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you
started having problems. System Restore does not delete you data, documents
music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the
restore point you selected).
System Recovery loses all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. It sets your system back to the time you first purchased it.
