Acer Aspire F5 573GH - keyboard issue

Q: Acer Aspire F5 573GH - keyboard issue

Hello, I have a question about the number of button combination pushed at the same time.I've problem in my favourite game with this, because it isn't workinglike on my old notebook. When I press and hold a certain number of buttons some of them doesn't work. So , it's possible to enable more working combination at the same time on my keyboard, or it's the issue of hardware restriction ? Thanks .

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 tried everything to get the right driver for it but I am having no luck at all... is there anyone that could possibly help me identify this problem┐ 

A:USB Keyboard Drivers do not work Acer Aspire X3470

Hi rnoctus83, The keyboard should have an installation CDC for the driver or once you connected the system should look for the driver automatically, i would suggest to go directly to the manufactures page of your keyboard and look for the driver and installed manually and if it works that way.

Hi, When I bought my Acer Aspire V15 Nitro, it had a keyboard backlight. I upgraded to Windows 10 and lost all the pre-installed software, and I can't get the backlight to turn on anymore. I've tried pressing Fn+F9, which is the only suggestion I've found online so far, and I can't find any missing drivers. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Hello.


It seems the sensible thing to do is take it back to the seller and let them sort it while it's under warranty.

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.

Hi!  I am having a hard time trying to find the correct Driver for my Acer Aspire X3470.  Currently I am using the standard PS/2 Keyboard to input commands.  But I do not want to use that Keyboard and I want to use my USB Keyboard. I tried everything to get the right driver for it but I am having no luck at all... is there anyone that could possibly help me identify this problem┐ 

A:USB Keyboard Drivers do not work Acer Aspire X3470

Hi rnoctus83, The keyboard should have an installation CDC for the driver or once you connected the system should look for the driver automatically, i would suggest to go directly to the manufactures page of your keyboard and look for the driver and installed manually and if it works that way.

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.

my father let borrow his laptop and they gave it back in bad shape.. first bad mistake

so now we have this brand new laptop completely not working.

battery charges. and the hard drive seems to spin when i turn it on

i have not yet checked the memory or if the hard drive is not working external came here first to hear other ideas while im gutting

so when i turn on the power... light comes on hard disk spins charges but no screen no bios... my conclusion ofc is the Motherboard...was gonna gut it and make sure all is pluged in and switch the memory incase that was the issue as i read on ANOTHER post
 

A:Acer Aspire issue

Tell us brand and model, and configuration. also where you live (for buying parts) We fan figger this out.
Do you see any sign of impact damage anywhere on any laptop surface.
Do you have a recovery disk set from Acer, or can you get one?
One possibility that would cover most issues is that the hard drive was damage by moving the laptop while the hard drive was spinning. Also, the ribbon cable from under the keyboard to the screen has pulled loose from vibration... or that a memory module has come loose.
The borrowers may not even know that they damaged it.
Are either you or your father good with screw drivers and other tools. You will need a #1 screw driver of excellent quality for hardness, and one smaller driver that is also not a cheap one... Then you can remove the hard drive.
You can buy a new hard drive to test, or borrow one, perhaps.
I would get a new one from www.directron.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, www.newegg.com, www.frys.com, www.Outpost.com, www.PCMall.com, or other online computer seller.
I recommend the SATA drives from Directron where a 160 GB drive is now only $32.99 to $47.00 depending on what you purchase. The Seagate 160GB drive is only $39.99 plus shipping. Is that an investment you can cover in your budget.
When we hear more from you, we will discuss some ways you can test your system, once we know what it is.

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.

Welcome to TSG SmartTech13. Hibernate, sleep (standyby provides a quicker start up) are all pretty much the same thing these days and those options will all use battery. These function is to mainly to save electricity which doesn't us as much battery but still uses battery.

With todays technology savings maybe $1.00 a month. My recommendation if you packing your laptop up for the day is to shutdown. If your going to use it again later the same day then check the Power Options settings in the Control Panel

Hello. About two weeks ago I purchased an Acer Aspire R5-571TG laptop and while everything has been running great, the fan has been extremely active and loud.  Either idle, watching youtube videos or just working on Microsoft office, the fan will start running extremely loudly. I don't run any difficult programs and since it's a new laptop it's not loaded with anything at all, and I haven't downloaded any sort of program which messes with the OS. When I've checked the Processes, typically the CPU is in the normal percentile and the laptop itself doesn't feel extremely warm. I'm not sure if this is a technical problem or if I maybe have to disable a driver or something?

A:Acer Aspire v5 WIfi Issue?

From the screen shot it shows you are connected but are having a DNS problem. Preinstalled A/V software tends to cause this problem on a regular basis. It might be good to make sure you are using some valid DNS server IP's in your router like Google at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

Try removing or uninstalling any type of trial Anti Virus software which no doubt came preinstalled on your system. You will need to use the vendor specific uninstall tool for this.

It can also help to remove all preinstalled bloatware by using Decrapifier to show you what can be safely removed.

Anyway thanks to anyone who was searching in the background for an answer.
Cheers Tony

Hello. My problem is that my Laptop (Acer Aspire 5738PZG, approx. 2 years old) freezes. It most commonly does so while watching Youtube videos, but also while listening to music on Spotify, talking on Skype, and using Utorrent. It freezes for maybe 1 minute, when it will just resume doing whatever it was doing. Sometimes it also bluescreens. It does not happen while playing games or while using VLC media player. Flash player is correctly installed. The problem started after I had my computer on service about two months ago, but I moved shortly after so I haven't had the chance to go back and make them take another look at it. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to TSF try reinstalling your sound and video drivers from the computer makers support site for your model and remove utorrent ( we don't help if it is a torrent issue)

I purchased the recommended 8GB module from crucial to upgrade frm the 4GB module currently in my Acer Aspire XC-703G computer. After installing it in the main slot (without the other 4GB module) - the computer does nothing - not even a beep. I've tried both slots.I'm wondering if you can only use 2 x 4GB modules? Or maybe the ram is bad?This is what Crucial recommended:http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/aspire-xc-703g/CT7296366Crucial so far has not been much help.Any help would be appreciated.

A:Acer Aspire 5515 Wifi issue

I started your own thread for you here, as that post is not going to be of any help in the thread to which you posted.

If the wireless card is easily accessible through a small cover on the laptop bottom look to see if one is there and make sure it is secure.

Ok i noticed it at work and thought it was just our wireless router there, but my laptop couldnt detect any wifi connections, i was going to check the router but put it off since i'm the only one who uses it. but now am home and am having the same issue, it wont detect any networks, i reset my router, and made sure it was configured properly. it is as far as i can tell. when i click to change the button to change the order of prefered networks it took me to authentication tab of the properties. i ran the network setup wizard again, and now it doesnt even have the authentication tab... i dont know what else to check.. oh, and i also checked the bios to see if it had any wifi settings there. it doesnt seem to.

thanks in advance.

If your lappy has a switch to turn on and off the wifi check that. If not, Are you running service pack 2 or 1?

Someone asked me to install Windows XP on this Laptop for them. I never boote to Vista, and I doubt they use it before giving it to me.

So I install XP Professional and performed all the driver installs and updates all the way up to SP3. The laptop has an issue where the main speakers don't produce sound, just external speakers and headphones.

Someone even advised me to do a clean install and Leave it at SP2 , still the same issue.

Could this be speaker hardware failure? I didn't get any "error installing realtek" messages the whole time.

Another thing is, in the Device Manager -> System Devices , "system speaker" says no drivers are loaded for this device.

Any help, as always is much appreciated guys!

I'm using a acer aspire one 110 netbook which origonaly had Linux on which I replaced for XP.

When I try to use 3dsMax with directX or old games such as Dungeon Siege 2 I get an error saying: Unable to enumerate any DirectDraw devices installed on this system. Note: this error can occur if another application has exclusive control over display for example, Net Meeting's desktop sharing feature, or hardware does not support 3d acceleraation or if your video driver does not propperly support DirectX 8.

I'm not aware of any Netmeeting program. I have directx 9 installed and have used both 3dsMax using directX and Dungeon Siege on this hardware before on Xp.
I Think the right driver software is installed but not completely sure.

Could anyone please direct me to the problem with means to fix it?

Thanks in advance =)

Hi, I bought my Aspire V 15 Nitro Black Edition 6 month ago. Today my touchpad stopped working.The cursor disappeared, and no click or touch gestures on the touchpad would work. I tried reboot, still not working.Then I tried re-installing the drivers from the Acer Support website (TouchPad_Synaptics_18.1.22.2_W81x64) and rebooted.Still not working and now the touchpad is gone from the Windows device manager. At least USB mouse is working, but I'm working a lot with the touchpad so I really don't want to live without it. Any ideas how this can be fixed? Thanks a lot!

hi,When I go to format my Acer it gets to the Windows 8.1 section where you select the hard drive to install Windows on before clicking next, also has the option to format and I think make a partition but there is no hard drive showing up in that box so I can't continue from there, it's the part after selecting language and clicking install.Has anyone else had this problem? If so how can I get my hard drive to appear in the box?Is there anything in the bios settings that can make my hard drive appear in the box?Thank you.

My year old acer aspire 1410 has about 1/4 of the screen on the far left covered in several different colors of stripes. The stripes do not apper in screen shots and have no effect on the computers perfomance. The area in the bottom left corner of screen gets very hot and I can tamper with the color of the stripes by pushing on the hot area. I cant figure it out and would like to know if this is something that I can fix at home or I need to spend money to get some one to fix it.
Any ideas?
