Hi guys, i have trying to repair an acer laptop for a friend, they had installed windows XP because they did not like Vista, but now the wireless does not work, i thought it would be a simple affair as i had recently fixed another friends IBM by going to the site and downloading the drivers, but in the case of this Acer, i am not sure which wireless card it has in, the acer website lists atheros, broadcom, and intel wireless drivers, i believe i have tried all three with no luck, in device manager it is also showing the "network controller" as needing drivers. Can someone guide me in the right direction with this?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hello everyone!

I recently bought a new keyboard for my Aspire 7741G. I wanted to replace the old kb with the new one, but i`m having problems removing the old keyboard. I`ve unscrewed all screws, but the top "plate" (the one that holds the keyboard) is still holding somewhere in the middle. Any advice on how to remove the keyboard? Or if someone knows where to find a service guide/manual for this laptop. Any answer is appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
 

A:Solved: Acer Aspire 7741G keyboard replacement

I don't know about Aspires, but while replacing a HDD in a Sony Vaio, the final screw holding the top plate was underneath the keyboard. All around the keyboard edges, there were "almost invisible" brackets holding the keyboard down. Had to use a very small screwdriver to carefully pop them.

Hi there I'm new to the forums so sorry if i've posted in the wrong place.

I'm trying to find out some information to help my parents, who's Acer Aspire Ones HDD has just failed, they took it to a local computer shop and they said at the cost of getting the new HDD and then a copy of windows they may as well buy a new computer.

I was wondering if there is an alternative, a way I could fix the thing without having to spend out for a new one. The HDD is a Western Digital 160gb Scorpio Blue, which i've seen on ebay going for £30 used, which then leaves the issue of getting the OS back. Anyways I will leave it at that as I think those on this forum will likely have far much more know how than me with this.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
 

A:Acer Aspire One HDD Failure

You'd need to get a set of restore disks from Acer, and they may charge a fee. Then you need an external optical drive to use the disks.

If this is a netbook, it's not worth the $100 or so you'll drop on it trying to get it back up and running. You can buy a brand new full-size laptop for $400 or another netbook for $200-$300.

Welcome to BleepingComputer From the description it appears like a failing hard disk. The best option would be to call Acer for a replacement if it is still under warranty.Else do this : Download GParted Live edition (USB or CD). Boot your computer using this. Take a snapshot or write down the details and post here the details of partitions on your laptop.Do not make any changes using GParted. BC experts will guide you further.

A:acer aspire netbook boot failure

I have two Acer netbooks in the house (different models). The first thing I did was buy an external DVD burner. The next thing I did was go to Programs, Acer, Acer eRecovery Management and burn the recovery DVDs.

Note: this is a radical last resort step because it restores your netbook to how it was when it left the factory. You lose all the programs you have installed, all the windows updates and patches and any programs you have removed because of new computer bloat will be back on your netbook.
You'd hold down the alt key and press F10 when you tirn on the computer. Click Restore Computer to Factory Defaults.

I'd probably recommend a less drastic measure first.
1. Buy an external DVD burner.
2. Get someone running Windows 7 (if that's what you are running) make a repair disk. If your computer is running 64 bit Win 7, the disk has to be made with the same bit-ness.

3. Use the repair disc to see if you can get Windows to boot.

Sounds like it is really messed up and you are losing a lot of time and headaches.

It would be better to do a factory restore, you could order factory restore discs from Acer for a nominal charge if the recovery partition is corrupted. Make sure that the drive is healthy, do the S.M.A.R.T. test diagnosis tool from Acer verifying the health of the disc. As always, backup your data first.

A:Acer Aspire 5536 (MS 2265) Power Up failure

Can you hear (or see) the fan running when you power up? It could be dirty or clogged and the laptop may shut down to prevent permanent damage from inadequate cooling.

You can try removing any drives (HDD and DVD), all but 1 stick of memory (try one then the other) and see if it makes any difference. Obviously it won't boot w/o a drive, but if it stays on, that would tell us something.

My Acer aspire netbook has suddenly developed a keyboard fault and I don't know if it is an XP problem or a hardware problem. The keys 1 zxcb and caps lock have stopped working.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I hate that my laptaps keyboard isn't backlit. Is there a backlit replcement for this?

A:Is the a backlit keyboard for an Acer Aspire E5-77...

There is, however, I highly doubt a standard user would ever want to do this. And you will 100% break your warranty, and quite possibly break your computer trying to replace it. It is your own responcibility if you do it. It is not user friendly to implement. But if you really want to risk everything, you can find the part online, but your risk. If you want, you can wait for a ACE member to answer your question.



First, CALM DOWN and look at my profile picture. Calm? Now post your message. If I helped, a Kudos would be great! Marking as solution will help others as well, thank you!

A:Acer Aspire E1-431 Keyboard is not working at all (All key).

Try using the keyboard on another computer and see if it works. If it's a USB keyboard, you should be able to use it on your father's laptop. If NO keys work on EITHER computer, the laptop is most likely ready for the garbage dump. I suppose you could try opening it up and cleaning it, but if it's not a very expensive keyboard I wouldn't even bother. Just replace it.

My laptop's keyboard stopped working (only the "a" and "1" keys will work). I believe this to be a hardware problem and would like to know what the exact model for a replacement keyboard is and where I could purchase one. After some researching some opinions said to change the entire top plate of the laptop, if that is a better solution I would need the model for it as well. Thank you

Ok so I regularly play video games and work on this laptop but for a while when ever I hold the w key and release it the key would still act as if it is being pushed down and would not stop holding itself down. This also happens when I switch tabs and when that happens the w key becomes unresponsive for a while then it is able to be used a couple seconds/minute later. I am not having luck with cleaning the keyboard since there is no space at all to stick a spray in to remove dust or a way I know of to remove the covers of the keyboard but all my other keys are good.

Usually the best fix is to replace the keyboard... about $30 to $50.
Try cleaning it thorougly with a can of difluoroethane gas such as dust off, as sometimes they are just dirty.
You might also attempt disconnecting and reseating all relevant cables.

Hi there, Several keys have died on my daughter's V5-473P keyboard.  I searched here and all I found were lots of customers complaining about failed keyboards with no answers, so I ordered a $20 replacement keyboard on ebay. My question is about how to remove the top panel/bezel that surrounds the entire keyboard and touchpad?  It seems like any effort to use a thin lever to pry it up would damage it...  Do I need to come at it from the bottom by removing the motherboard, etc?  I'm trying to repair this on the cheap, since it's barely out of warranty and after removing the bottom case, I find it's falling apart around many of the screw holes (the bottom case appears more pricey than the keyboard). Thanks.

A:Acer aspire 5943g keyboard problems

Chances are that the keyboard contacts are wearing out or it is full of dirt, try turning the PC upside down and gently tapping the keyboard, you may be suprised how much dirt comes out of it. You could also get a can of compressed air to blow out all the dirt, but if nothing helps a new keyboard may be the only solution.

I am helping a friend with an Acer Aspire 4330. The problem is some of the keyboard keys produce multiple entries(of varying letter) when pressed. All hardware drivers are updated, however acer shows no keyboard drivers to update. A USB keyboard works fine when plugged in. My question is this: could this be a spyware related issue? I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.
 

A:Acer Aspire 4330 keyboard issue

No, it's not malware if an external keyboard works fine. The problem is with the physical keyboard. Before you start replacing parts, find out what happened to it. If someone spilled something on it, the keyboard might not be the only thing damaged. It looks like an old laptop. Not worth sticking much money into.

Be sure it is not the socket... It is rare to very rare that a PS/2 keyboard will fail, bugt common for a USB keyboard to turn belly up.

Since the external works, it looks like you're ready for a new keyboard, but to be sure try the onscreen one; Accessories>System Tools>Accessibility>On Screen Keyboard. Also please don't post in bold caps. It's considered shouting. Also use the built in font as your post is quite large. Since your OS is Windows 7 and not 9X, I'm moving the thread there.

I am in the same position as you after buying the laptop from Amazon.  After talking with Acer chat, they have told me that there is no backlight on the model, even though the amazon product description includes a backlit keyboard and there are pictures of the laptop with backlit keyboard in the reviews.  I do not know what to do about the laptop.

Hi There, After I wake my Notebook from sleep mode, the backspace speed settings are really slow but the settings in the keyboard settings are the same - fast. This only seems to happen after waking from sleep mode. If I restart it or power up after shut down it's not an issue. Any ideas as to what the issue is?? Thanks!

The technical support people say if I can change the keyboard myself, then they'll simply ship me a new keyboard which I would have to change myself. Otherwise, I will have to send them the laptop which is a lot of hassle and the shipping would suck

You could try removing and reconnecting the keyboard as the connector may be partly loose; I've seen that on many models and Dell and Lenovo both had entire lines of laptops where the connection would just come loose and simply had to be reconnected.

Just ruled out malware in other section of this forum. Laptop's integrated keyboard suffers intermittent lock-ups for no apparent reason (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, right now, doesn't). Touchpad seems deactivated (tried FN + F7 in case of accidental disable, but that's not the case), every option related to touchpad are grayed out in 'mouse' menu (config panel). Before malware check-up,tried system restore to last week, all problems were still there, so I reverted back. I have to use visual keyboard to type. Have to work with external mouse because touchpad doesn't work. Tried reinstalling touchpad drivers from Acer website, and didn't work. Computer worked perfect a few days ago.

Sounds like you may have some system files corrupt. This can occur after a lot of spyware. Some times just removing it dose not correct what it has already messed up. Your best maybe to back up your personal stuff. Then do a factory reinstall.

Acer Aspire Model ZD1 :5920-0914 has bad keyboard problem. The only way to use is to type onto copy, & paste where you normally would be typing. It actually
 came back from getting fixed, before that it didn't have a keyboard problem & wondered if one of these buttons on it got pressed to cause this. Hope to get help.
But i think it's got malware or infection also, so which forum would be best? Please Help.

Tried to reset my CMOS to default, did not work.
Tried to go to Advanced Boot Options, laptop just kept restarting.
Tried to see if my D2D recovery was enabled in BIOS, it was.
Tried to use alt+F10, did not work.

I really don't have the time or money at the moment to buy a recovery disk (hopefully it can be voided), so I was wondering if
a.) Anyone had another troubleshooting tip.
or
b.) If anyone knew how to fix the alt+f10 method I tried.

It looks like your recovery partition is corrupted. You never want to rely on the recovery partition, because if your hard drive fails, the recovery partition goes down with it. The erecovery manager should've prompted you to make the recovery discs when you first started up the computer. It doesn't cost any money to make them. Since you don't havbe erecovery discs, it looks like you are going to have to clean install Windows 7 (which I prefer because it doesn't have all of the bloatware that you would have if you ran erecovery) To clean install Windows 7 on your computer, please follow this tutorial and post back with any questions: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

hi guys.

help

im having trouble with my laptop keyboard.
whenever i use my laptop keyboard the Fn function is "on" for the numeric keypad (the one usually on the right side of a normal keyboard). this started when i used an external keyboard. so thinking 'bout it i unplug the external keyboard but the same thing happens. the Fn function for the numeric keypad is "on". I have also tried powercycling the system but its still the same.

Please help. I can't use my laptop outside my house coz of that.
 

A:Acer Aspire One keyboard "Fn" problem

Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.

I also found a very similar post here: http://geeklord.com/2008/01/19/solution-to-keyboard-lag-problem-in-acer-aspire-4520-laptop/

Is one of these the problem?
Also, the little button on right side front doesn't light up. The one that turns on the capability for wireless. There is nowhere to set up the wireless, it shows nothing. Please help! My daughter needs to get online. Thanks in advance.

I put my computer into the shop for a diagnostic test and I was told the motherboard was fried. Of course the warranty is up and I didn't get the extended warranty because it was so expensive. I have never heard of a motherboard going bad after a year and a half. Anyway, is it worth replacing? I have looked around and they aren't cheap. I have never had a motherboard fry and I have had quite a few computers. One of my computers is 6 years old and still going strong. Of course the Acer was my newest computer and I loved it because it was a notebook with a huge screen. I am not happy...

Sometimes they are difficult to remove the first few times, you may need to use the open palm of you hand, hit the side cover in a glancing blow in the direction toward the rear of the case a few times.

Acer provides no documents other than to say to remove the chassis screws, then remove the panel, no pics.
