I got the Aspire R13 (317T) a couple of days ago, and while I am really enjoying it there's a couple of problems with the keyboard.   The first is that is there any way to completely disable the backlight on the keyboard?  I'm tired of having to manually use the function keys to turn if off every time I open the lid.  This wouldn't be as much of a problem if there wasn't the second issue. Second, when the backlight is all the way up, there is a high pitched buzzing noise comming from the speakers.  I've found a coulple other posts that have the same problem but I don't know if it's a defect or an issue that can be fixed. I really like this laptop but these keyboard issues are starting to make me think I need to return it.Thanks.

Answer:Acer Aspire R13 backlight keyboard issues

jjsmall009,
 
As far as the backlight goes, no, you would have to use the keys to turn it off every time.
 
If you are experiencing a high pitch sound only when the backlight is at full brightness we can have our repair technicians look at the unit for you if you'd like.
 
Here is the link to set up repairs online without ever having to call in or you can chat online with a technician (available 24/7).

Just got the Acer Aspire R5-571T and it's a really nice laptop.  My only complaint is that the backlit keyboard shuts off after about 30 seconds and it's so annoying.  There should be an option in the bios to have it stay on all the time if I turn it on with the key combination.  If I turn it off with the key combination then it should stay off until I turn it back on.  Please add this option in the bios for this laptop and all other Acer laptops.

I've owned my Y2P for the last 3 or 4 months now.  Keyboard backlight always turned off/on with Fn Spacebar just fine... until today.  Fn+Space just gets the keyboard backlight to flash off for a second, and then back on. Also I checked and all of the other Fn keys work.  Also the Caps Lock light doesn't come on either. And if that's not all, My power indicator light is amber even when fully charged.  (solid, not blinking)

I have a new HP Envy 14 Ultrabook.  It has a backlit keyboard.  I know many people like that "feature", but I don't.  I assumed it would be easy to turn off the light in the control panel (e.g., in the device's settings), but there is no option.  I can hit the F5 key to turn off the general lighting, but then that F5 key glows blindingly bright all the time.  I want to either completely disable the keyboard backlights, or equivalently set the light level to be dim to the point of being completely off.  But I can't find any setting to do that in the power options, device properties, etc.  Nor has this question been satisfactorily answered in any other forums that I could find.  Thanks in advance for your help.

If an external display work it is definitely an internal issue. It could be a loose cable or a bad piece of hardware, which would require service probably to get it resolved.

I'm looking for information on my laptop, an Acer Aspire 8730G.  I'm trying to determine if the laptop screen takes two backlights or one.  Apprently, both were used in this build.  I'm hoping to get away cheap with a light replacement, rather than the whole screen.

Answer:Acer Aspire 8730G: one backlight or two

Most of the time it's going to be the inverter which is pretty easy to change.If you remove the screws in thebezel and tilt the screen back as far as it goes, you may be able to get the bezel off without having to disassemble the whole laptop.I believe there are three screws across the top and two in the bottom corners.Since you have to open it regardless, take out the old one and see if it's single or double.

 I know this has started to be covered already but the discussion was never finished. This was the original post: I have discovered that the keyboard backlighting won't turn off. The backlight on/off key is labeled as F5. I press it, but nothing happens. I've also tried pressing fn+f5, but that doesn't do anything either. I had been leaving the backlight on, but now I want it to only be on when I press the f5 key. Why won't the backlight turn off? I am having the exact same issue. I followed the instrustions of the helper, which were: Can you please get to the Desktop Screen of Windows by pressing the Windows Key and ?D? keys together and then press the F5 key? As you might know, F5 is used for refreshing a Window/Page. Do you see the Desktop Icons getting refreshed? This is to make sure that the F5 key is working or not?If you got confused with that suggestion, please open MS Word and then press the keys ?Fn? and ?F5? together and let me know whether you get the ?Find and replace? Window? I didn't understand the first part, but the second part I got. I opened Word and pressed Fn and F5 together and can confirm that the 'Find and Replace window appeared. However, I have no idea what to do from here or how to fix the problem, please help me. Also bear in mind please that I am 16 years old and know pretty much nothing about computers. Also, I only got this laptop for Christmas 2015 and am not very familiar with everything yet.

The screen backlight has issues staying on. At various angles of the laptop's lid being open, the backlight will turn off. It often takes me upwards of 30 seconds of fiddling with the screen just to be able to see the content on the screen. Seems most likely to be a hardware/quality/manufacturing issue. I've had the laptop for two years now, and have never dropped it or mishandled it. I first had issues with the backlight a few weeks ago where the backlight flickered once, and has gotten progressively worse to the point where now there's probably 100 degrees of a "dead area" where the backlight is instable and dies out randomly. HELPPP I know it's a backlight issue because when it does die, I can shine a light on the screen and can still interact with the screen (touchscreen) and can see the text moving.

Answer:Acer Aspire S7 392. screen backlight issues

In this case, check if reinstalling display drivers (VGA drivers) help in resolving the issue. To download the latest display drivers for your model, the following link can be helpful:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers If you are not able to find the right display drivers or if the issue persists even after reinstalling drivers, you are advised to contact nearest Acer service center by using the link below for further assistance:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service Hope this will help you.

Greetings, Got my brand new Acer Aspire Switch 12 the other day. I'm very satisifed with the form factor and with the device in general. Except for one thing. There is audible amount of noise coming from my unit when the backlight is set between 0% and 100%. The noise seems to emanate just under the "Acer" logo. This noise goes away when i set the backlight to 0% or to 100%. And it seems to be the loudest if i set the backlight to about 50% It is not very obvious but i can definitely hear it in a quiet room. Kind of defeates the whole point of a fanless design if you ask me. I think the noise is coming from the capacitors or coils in the backlight regulator circutry. I would like to know if this is a general problem with this model or is this just a problem with my unit. Fellow Aspire Switch 12 owners, do you have the same issue with your unit? Acer admins, is this a known problem with this model? I have to know, i have to decide whether i'm going to replace the unit, return the unit or just stick with it. I bought it from amazon.es.Part number of my unit: NT.L7FEB.004

Answer:Acer Aspire Switch 12 noisy LCD backlight?

mkatic,
 
I do not see anything in the documentation that talks about that issue, you can contact Acer technical support in your area to see what your options are, or you can seek them through Amazon; I believe that this might be their return policy if it helps steer you in the right direction.

Hi.  I bought a new Aspire R14 a few days ago and it is an awesome computer.  I already love the thing.  It is really a brilliant device and a great value with the latest Intel processor and a solid state hard drive. One thing that I would like to change however is to have the keyboard backlight not reset to off every time I close the lid.  I like the fact that the keyboard goes dark if I don't press a key for a bit and then lights back up when I do press something.  That functionality turns off, however, when you close the laptop lid and then you have to re-enable it with a press of function-F10.  It would be great if the auto on with a keystroke was always enabled.  People could just turn it down if they don't want the backlight. Actually, I would love it if the keyboard would just stay lit up all the time and I could turn it down/off when I want.  I realize this might make a small drain on the battery but I think it is a reasonable tradeoff for the increased usability.  From what I have read, this may have been the default setting in the past.  It would be pretty cool if there was a setting to allow people to choose how this function operated. Thanks for your consideration.  Again, great computer and I really could not be any more excited about my purchase!

And yours should be in the BIOS setup where you can turn on the numlock by default. You will have to look through all the BIOS options to see if you have that option listed in there. But if you looked through the complete BIOS settings and find none then it most likely means there isn't a option to set it by default.

Hi All,
I recently got an Inspiron 15-5559 Signature edition from the Microsoft Store. I've been trying to turn off the backlight on the keyboard but none of the methods allowed me to do so.
I've tried pressing Fn+F10, as well as just F10 while the Fn key is locked.
I have also installed Quickset but that isn't working either. The slider in Windows Mobility Center moves but it doesn't change the backlight brightness at all. 
Lastly, changing the keyboard illumination settings in BIOS doesn't change the backlit levels either.

Any ideas on how to get it to disable? Thanks

Hello, is it possible to set the keyboard illumintaion that it turns off when I dont use the keyboard for X minutes?The illumination is really annoying, when watching something. And turning it off manually is really bothering. Dell Vostro has it, is it also possible on thinkpads? Thanks!

Answer:Auto turn off backlight keyboard T430

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I would like to inform you that as of now, there is no such settings available to turn off the backlit keyboard after a certain period of inactivity. The backlight automatically turns completely off only when the screen goes off or when the machine goes to sleep. I personally think that what you have suggested would be an incredibly useful one and our engineers will take it as a great suggestion to implement the same.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

My T450 always turns on keyboard backlight when I power-on the machine or even just wake it up from sleeping. I don't look at the keyboard at all, so I don't need this backlight; but worse, it just uselessly consumes some power from battery (I do work without AC quite often), and I might miss the fact that the backlight is on for hours of working on battery, that's pretty annoying. Is that intended behavior? Can this "feature" be turned off? I don't see any option in BIOS for that. Thanks

Hi Sravan,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that the Backlight feature is no provided in G570 Laptop and if it is present a symbol will be imprinted on the ?Spacebar? key. If there is no symbol on it, this means the backlight is not present in your computer.
 
Do post us back for further queries.

The backlight "bleeds" from the edges of the screen. It is visible in low ambient light conditions. Come on Acer, you can do it better, this is 700 euro laptop, not a crappy 300 euro laptop, the screen bust be flawless. I returned the laptop, I cannot tolerate this. Check the attached image.

Answer:Keyboard backlight not working: Aspire R13 R7-372T

The R7-371T model that ships in North America has a backlit keyboard. FN+F9 decreases the keyboard backlight brightness, and FN+F10 increases the keyboard backlight brightness. While we can't help with Ubuntu, the best way to troubleshoot this is to restore the system back to factory configurations and test those function keys before installing any other software or operating system. If it works then this function is working as it should. If the keyboard light does not work after a restore then we would recommend the system be serviced for the keyboard light. Should this be the case please contact the Acer support for your region from this link:

Did you also replace the inverter? If not, that could be the problem.However, as the problem is intermittent, it is most likely a poor connection or broken cable. If a visual check doesn't reveal the fault, you could try a continuity test. Another test is to partially open and close the lid to check for on/off or flicker which would also indicate poor connection, broken cable or fractured ribbon cable.Personally, I wouldn't suspect the motherboard until all the above have been thoroughly checked and proved to be good.

I've seen this asked here several times, and the answer, as I recall from Lenovo staff, is "no".  It's a physical switch toggle with the Fn key and there isn't any software to substitute for that.

Answer:Acer Aspire Will not Turn on

At this point, you cannot be sure what it is that has gone bad. It could be the video card, the power supply, the motherboard or both the motherboard and the video card. It is possible an overheated video card went bad, taking the main board with it. One way you could test is to open the computer case and disconnect everything that is disconnectable from the board (except power). Remove video card and other add-in cards; disconnect hard disks, CD/DVD drives, etc. Then see if the computer will power up. If not, you have narrowed the problem to power supply, memory, main board, and processor.

Remove the power supply and take it to a repair shop and have it tested. They will probably do it for free on the prospect of selling one.

As an aside, it seems all expensive, high-end video cards have ten-cent fans. I've actually seen cases where those fans have seized in about a month. In my opinion, all of them should come with two spare fans in the box. They invariably fail and sometimes take the main boards with them. So, for any computer that has a video card requiring a fan to keep it cool, I recommend a secondary fan mounted in the case and pointed directly at the video card's heat-sink.

In this case, you can consider performing a power reset. To do this, follow the steps below:1. Unplug the AC adapter from your notebook.2. Turn the notebook over to remove the battery.3. Turn the notebook back over and open it.4. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then release the power button.5. Turn the notebook back over and slide the battery back into place.6.

In this case, it is recommended to remove the battery from the laptop and connect the laptop directly to the power adapter. If this solves the issue, there may be some problem with your battery. One more way you can check if there is a problem with your battery is, you can try using another battery (if possible). If it works fine using another battery, there may be some issues with the battery you were previously using. If none of the above steps work, you may need to contact your nearest Acer service center for further assistance.

Nothing at all shows on the screen? No windows startup sounds? Do you hear fans and drives spin up or LEDs flash (besides the charging LED) when you attempt to start it? If no no and no then it'd be hard to point to a specific fix, especially one that didn't require you to disassemble it. Is it still under warranty?

I have just bought an Acer Aspire E15 but I'm having problems turning it on.  It won't turn on, it lights up with the Acer icon then the screen goes black, the only way I can get it on is to keep trying, it seems I need to hold down the start key for several seconds for it to come in, it is hugely annoying, can anyone help please?

The machine should be under warrenty. That said If you do not have media, use the power button to restart your computer during the boot process three times (do not let it get to the end of the boot process) . This should bring up the Windows Recovery Environment.

After intalling win 10 my Acer Aspire S7-392 sometimes will not turn off. Especially if my Acer has been on for a while. Also when I close the desktop lid and later open the lid, the computer will not start (black screen). I have to manually turn off by pressing power. Have anyone the same issue on their Acer Aspire S7-392? Please respond if you have a solution...

I know this has been posted a lot but mine seems to be a little odder than what has been posted. My laptop just shut off one day and will only turn on when the back/bottom of the laptop is not on, which means my motherboard is completely exposed, once I put the back/bottom back on it will not turn on. I thought it might have been the fan, its not brand new fan and still wont turn on. Any help would be awesome!
 

Answer:Acer Aspire laptop won't turn on

This is not an easy one to help with without have the laptop in my own hands. You will most likely find that there is a bad connection somewhere that is being broken when the base is fitted. Have a good look at all the ribbon cable connections as one has probably worked loose.

Hi, Please forgive me if this is answered somewhere else but I've been searching on my phone for ages and got nowhere. Was using laptop on Thursday night closed it over when I went to bed. I'm often guilty of not shutting down and just closing it over. Last night came home to  make some changes to my fantasy team and out won't turn on! The leds at the front don't light up at all and there is no response. The charger offers nothing and I've tried taking the battery out and put it back in and held down power button. I've now exhausted my technical know how. Any ideas?  Thanks!

Answer:Help! Acer Aspire One 725 won't turn on or charge

Del86,
 
If your netbook is not showing a battery charging LED with the system powered off the first thing I would troubleshoot is the charging adapter itself.

Press & hold the power button for 5-10 seconds to make sure it's off. Then let it charge for several hours before pressing the power button again. Jack E/NJ

I recently bought an Aspire TC 710 desktop computer and unless my problem is solvable I'm starting to regret my decision. Whenever the computer goes into sleep mode, the power button starts to blink in a shrill, obnoxious way and I can't find family-friendly words to describe how much that annoys me. HOW DO I TURN THAT OFF????  Thanks so much for your help!
