Hello, I have an Acer Aspire E5-551G-t0jn laptop which has not been restarting properly after upgrading to windows10.The laptop WILL boot up if I press and hold the powerkey until it cycles off, or do a SHUT DOWN instead. However, when I just perform a reboot it simply hangs at the Acer logo indefinitely. I performed a clean install of windows 10 and the problem persisted. I then installed a linux distro alongside windows 10 and the issue persists there too, so I'm not certain it's just windows 10. However, until the upgrade, 8.1 and my linux partition both restarted fine without hassle. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciatedThanks

Answer:Acer Aspire E5-551g not restarting properly

The problem was the Intel Ultimate-n 6300 Wireless Nic I installed to replace the buggy Atheros one, since swapping back everything works as should. I never suspected the wireless nic could be the problem, but it turns out that particular card and Acer's E5 551G laptops do not get along and resulted in the laptop hanging at post after rebooting.

Answer:Acer v17 nitro keyboard is not working properly

Hi,Go to Device manager(right click windows logo at far left bottom in taskbar), expand keyboards, right click keyboard and click uninstall, then reboot and let windows install the driver, this may or may not rectify the problem but worth a try.

Hi,
We have Windows 7 64 bit with an Acer older laptop.
We are not sure what we did but our keyboard has changed in that we cannot use Ctrl + Cto copy or Ctrl + V for paste and other functions. Also our mouse pad does not work anymore. We are using an external USB keyboard and it works fine with a USD wireless mouse and sometimes a USB wired mouse which work fine.
My question is what can we do to restore our laptop keyboard?
We do not have or original Windows 7 CD anymore.
We have tried to fix the mouse driver but I think I made it worse.
We have tried to update the HID keyboard device but Windows says it is up-to-date.
Same with PS/2 keyboard device.
Same with the mouse- up-to-date.
Could we hit some key combination that changed the keyboard settings?
We have looked in the Acer PDF but see not solutions.
Thanks,
Chip MX (we are living in Mexico)

I have a license Windows 7 , my laptop is no DVD drive , with the usb drive can not set windows 7 , really want to set the mode uefi on GPT , there is no possibility to install Windows 7 64bit uefi on GPT , I'm not talking about old issues when away from the monitor just hurt your eyes , Thank you after updating the BIOS, it became normal - but installation windows 7 In simple mode still tired eyes , there is no way to install Windows 7 64bit uefi on GPT the appearance of the installation it just hangs at the beginning of the installation  before I had a laptop ASUS there are no such problems _I used to think a lot better about such good company like ACER what happened ? Why so bad begun to treat usersI also changed the drive 5400 to 7200, for some reason there is not much growth in this laptop, the other works faster, perhaps it's because the economy mode? canwas also beat and add a menu BIOS so that the user himself could disable such as integrated graphics?

Our OEM version of Windows 7 is designed to run on GPT. We are unable to provide support for running legacy operating systems in UEFI mode.

HelloI have an acer v3-551g still guarantee about a year ..Broke the hard drive and bought another with greater capacity and installed windows 8 microsoft original 30 days to activate .. However before the disc damage I had done full backup through the eRecovery, and now I can not restore this new disc .. What can I do to restore full backup (including all software acer)?I've tried using the alt f10 but does not open the eRecovery .I can not even through the windows 8 install recovery software to restore the backup ..Thank you

Answer:Help Please Acer V3-551g

ALT+F10 works only with original HDD, since the erecovery is stored in an hidden partition. i don't know if your erecovery backup is a bootable disk, but have you try to boot on DVD instead of HDD? press F12 at boot and select DVD as bootable device.

I am working on an Acer Aspire 5050. When I first saw it, you had to strike the keyboard keys with force and repeatedly to get it to type a letter. On average, for every 10 strikes, it would type 4 strokes. I have researched this and have found no answers, just a lot of speculation and "try a restore or reformat", which is not an option for this owner. I tried disabling the Launch Manager, which controls the keyboard, but it made no difference after it reinstalled. I did see a post about the ACPI possibly being an issue. Since I could not find a way to disable it, and I did not want to risk having no battery management and who knows what other side effects, I decided to try the unit without the battery installed. I shut down the computer, removed the battery and rebooted the computer. Guess what - no more keyboard issue!! However, as soon as I put the battery back in, the keyboard stopped working properly again! The battery still seems to hold a good charge, lasting 1.5 hours according to the owner.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks!

Hi I have a V3-551G-X419 with AMD A-10 processor and AMD RADEON HD76660G+7607M W/2GB Dedicated VRAM. my problem is it keeps on flickering.  it used to only flicker when it was on battery mode and then it would stop when i plugged it in, now it won't stop flickering and its really hard to keep on working with this laptop because of it.  haven't tried using an external monitor on it but when i use team viewer and control the computer from my tablet, there's no flickering. in addition, before all the constant flickering, the monitor seemed to darken a little and it seemed that part of the monitor had a busted light now with all the flickering, the busted side is gone and it brightness of the monitor is back but it keeps on flickering. any ideas please thanks.

Answer:My screen keeps on flickering! Acer V3 - 551G - X4...

Normally this would be either a loose cable at the screen end connector, same cable but loose on motherboard or cable wearing due to abrasive damage near the hinges. However, I have been looking at a V5 571. The build is so light/cheap that distorting the screen is easy to do even if you're careful. This has led to some users having cracked screens, broken hinges and dodgy circuit boards. This Acer upon disassembly of the screen (which is also poorly designed, with the whole circuitry arrayed along the bottom where the most stress is) just got worse and worse. I can get it to display properly if I squeeze the bezel at the bottom, then it flickers and fogs up. The keyboard packed up while I was doing this, never had that happen before and I've been repairing laptops since they came out. More people are reporting these problems. Acre say its misuse. I say that's rubbish! Take 'em to court if you have to, but get a proper technicians report first.

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though). However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it. What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise. I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes). So because having an immobile laptop is a pretty big problem for me I decided to look up the problem ...

Answer:Acer Aspire V3-551G Fan and Overheating Problems

I have a similar problem. my fan makes some kind of croaking noise jst before it starts to spin whenever i put on the system, and intermittently later on. I advise you don't open your system until you've exhausted other options. my own system is jst about 6 to 8 months old, so i am not looking forward to changing my fan anytime soon. have you tried looking through the base of your system to check for dust? you should search online. there are various supposed fixes worth checking out. i tried installing speedfan, which didn't detect my fans. as i couldn't risk opening my system to check the fan myself, which involved removing the keyboard and motherboard, i took it to a technician. came back, and the fan is still making that sound(incidentally, it didn't make the sound at the technician's), in addition to a new one i suspect is from the hard drive. In essence, if you later have to take it apart, make sure it's a real professional who knows what he is doing. And whatever works for you, please update this discussion. I'd like to check it out on my system. also try to run a hardware diagnostic. haven't had any success with that myself, but that's because i can't seem to find a software that works for acer. i jst opened a new discussion for that topic and hope i'll get a new reply soon.

Greetings, I've been working with my laptop and noticed a few things. It's always ran rather warm, especailly when playing games. So I didnt think much of it since it is very thin, I just limited how long I'll run heat generating applications anyways long story short, someone suggested that part of my problem may be a bug and a bios update might fix it. So after going to the Acer site, I discovered there are infact 2 bios updates for the E5-551G models, one dealing with thermal State functions and another for improved system performance.  So I think it'd probably be beneficial to update my bios, however I also know a botched update can brick your laptop.Is there a way to backup my current Bios and restore it should the update be a failure?Do I need to do the updates sequentially or will just doing the last one bring me up to speed? I do not want to brick my laptop. So some advice on this matter would be very appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Acer Aspire E5-551G Bios Update

You can flash the latest without doing sequentially, so flash 1.11. about brick and BIOS backup: brick is very rare if you follow stricly the instructions, if it bricks....Acer service will fix it or you can try to follow some online instructions, but it can't be talked here.as far as i know, Acer BIOS flasher doesn't backup the old BIOS

My FPS are increasing drastically when i UNPLUG my laptop , like +20frames beside those i have . I observed that my CPU and GPU are being used at an almost full potential when my laptop it's on its own battery , but when its plugged in , the gpu's ussage drops on about its half ussage . Can someone help me with a fix ? Please , I'm struggling for months now .

I bought an E5-551G a few months ago and it's been nothing but dissapointment. Neither the 2.4Ghz built-in wifi nor the (supposedly) Gigabit ethernet port function properly. They both max out at 5mbps. The touchpad drivers crash everytime the computer is put to sleep. Only way to fix is reboot the system or uninstall the device from device manager and scan for hardware changes. Never buying acer again.

Sorry to hear that you are having issues with your notebook, here are a couple troubleshooting steps I can offer that might resolve it.
 

How old is the router you are using, does it have the latest firmware on it? The Ethernet (wired) connection would have to have some sort of outside influence to only be getting 5 MBps speeds.
Reinstall the wireless network connection drivers see if that fixes it.
Download the touchpad drivers from our support site, remove the touchpad drivers from the device manager, then install the drivers you downloaded from our support site directly.
Perform a refresh to see if there are any corrupt files that need fixing.
Uninstall any 3rd party programs or applications that may have been installed to see if that resolves it.

your laptop is not on Acer support for windows 10:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/windows10-eligible-models maybe you can try checking drivers on other V3 models, like 532 or 472; or searching on hardware manufacter website.

My current laptop, which is an Acer Aspire V3 551g X419 will not charge as of recently. It's a little over 2 years old, but I have replace both the battery and charger within the past 6 months, so I am mostly positive that neither one of them is at fault here. I've also tried getting the DC port replace in case that was error that was keeping it from charging, yet that turned up with zero results. So as it stands I have no clue what the issue could be or how I can resolve it. And to add, the replacement charger and battery I am using both support 19V, as suggested.

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though). However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it. What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise. I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes). So because having an immobile laptop is a pretty big problem for me I decided to look up the problem ...

Answer:Acer Aspire V3-551G Fan and Overheating Problems

I have a similar problem. my fan makes some kind of croaking noise jst before it starts to spin whenever i put on the system, and intermittently later on. I advise you don't open your system until you've exhausted other options. my own system is jst about 6 to 8 months old, so i am not looking forward to changing my fan anytime soon. have you tried looking through the base of your system to check for dust? you should search online. there are various supposed fixes worth checking out. i tried installing speedfan, which didn't detect my fans. as i couldn't risk opening my system to check the fan myself, which involved removing the keyboard and motherboard, i took it to a technician. came back, and the fan is still making that sound(incidentally, it didn't make the sound at the technician's), in addition to a new one i suspect is from the hard drive. In essence, if you later have to take it apart, make sure it's a real professional who knows what he is doing. And whatever works for you, please update this discussion. I'd like to check it out on my system. also try to run a hardware diagnostic. haven't had any success with that myself, but that's because i can't seem to find a software that works for acer. i jst opened a new discussion for that topic and hope i'll get a new reply soon.

Hi,

I was cleaning my laptop's keyboard yesterday with a damp cloth (Apparently too damp), and when I turned it back on, the keyboard wasn't working properly. To sum it up, this is the list of problems it has right now:

- None of the keys work if I press them.

- Despite that, the computer thinks that certain buttons are being held down.
At first, I Removed the keyboard keys and tried to dry them with a hairdryer (I was careful to not let it get too hot).

Unfortunately, I turned my laptop off for this, by holding down the power button, as I couldn't do it with the start menu, as the computer registered the keyboard pressing down a button, directing me to the search browser.

Anyway, that meant that when I tried turning the laptop back on, it gave the screen which states that my laptop did not turn off correctly, and that I must select an option for restarting, and then press 'enter', which ofc, I can't do.

Its been nearly 24 hours since It stopped working, and I'm quite sure there is no water left in the keyboard (I could be wrong, but the initial amount of water that must have seeped in must have been tiny to begin with (The cloth I used was not that wet at all- I had strained it before I used it)

Answer:Keyboard Not Working Properly

If this is a wireless keyboard, have you tried resetting the keyboard and reveiver? Usually a small button on bottom of keyboard, and another button on the wireless transmitter... also you could try another usb for the receiver.

If its a wired kb check the connection... after you power system down. Unplug and then plug in again firmly. You could also try a different usb here as well.

Hello,
Few days ago I started to notice that some of the letters on my laptop keyboard randomly stop working. Sometimes they work and sometimes they won't work at all. These are the keys that stop responding: A,X,C,F,N. Basically I boot my OS and then whenever I try to press on one of those letters they don't respond. Another thing to mention, if I hold the letter for about 5-15 seconds it starts working again. At first this wasn't a big problem, but then it just got worse. This started to happen more frequently. Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

I have been having trouble getting my satellite laptop to boot up. Recovery disks & pressing F keys weren't working so I decided to open up the laptop to see if there were any loose connections. To my surprise, the laptop seemed to work again once I'd taken out the memory sticks and put them back in! Unfortunately before I did this I opened up the keyboard and had a look inside.

When I booted up and tried to use the keyboard keys half of them work and the other half seem to think they represent two other keys e.g. if I type the letter 'E' I will get '3' and '-' together. After 5-10 minutes the whole keyboard will then become totally unresponsive until I reboot again. Obviously I think I have done something here as this problem has occurred since I opened up the underside of the keyboard. Could this be a hardware fault I have caused or is there anyway this issue can be resolved without replacing anything?

Many thanks

Tom

Answer:Keyboard is not working properly

Hi Tom

Theoritically it could be just an lose connection between the keyboard and the motherboard but I?m afraid it can be some serious issue.
Possibly you have damaged the keyboard connector, cable or something similar and not the keyboard does not function properly.

I think the keyboard should be replaced to check if only this part is affected

Hey guys,

I am running XP on a Compact Presario SR1910NX and have been trouble shooting some basic issues.

I had recently cleaned my system of viruses with help from techguy, however the keyboard and mouse started acting up, by means they would not work either at boot up or after the computer took a nap due to non use.

I bought a new mouse and that did the trick, however, the keyboard is another issue.

I can use it only when in safe mode, which is how I am accessing this forum. Other than that, once the computer is turned on, all the lights on the keyboard light up, stay lit and the keys do not function.

I have tried different keyboards, but all have the same issue.

I am assuming it has something to do the the computer accessing the port for the keyboard.

I have also tried to do a system restore back to the point that the system was working and was clear of issues, but no matter what date I choose, I get an error message stating the computer can not restore the system, no other details as to why.

I have attached a copy of the current hijack this log to see if I missed any viruses or what not.

ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling, trouble shooting, checked for software changes, ect. even tried my backup keyboard.

Answer:keyboard not working properly

Your backup keyboard doesn't work either in the same port?


Does it still work 'outside' Windows ie in the Bios etc.


Desktop? USB? Have you tried a different USB port?


Uninstall all your keyboard software and plug in your back up board to a different port if you can.


When starting up your PC, look at the lights on the keyboards. During the POST (before it starts Windows) you'll see the lights (capslock, Numlock etc) flicker. When Windows actually loads, it will flicker again as it 'handing over' control to the OS and the OS drivers.


When Windows loads, after login, Do the lights stay on or go dark completely?


To save on screen typing (which is a pita), quote and yes/no some of the questions.

Greetings,I would like to ask the community a question about my LCD screen problem. When I turn on my notebook LCD monitor it's working normally, but then after 1 or 2 seconds it's dimmed, but only on the right side. Before I could get rid of the dimmed spot by turning off / on monitor by pressing Fn+F6, but it's not working anymore. In the beginning dimmed spot was smaller, but now it's getting bigger. I have Linux Mint and Windows 8.1 in dual boot and the problem appear in both operating systems, so it's not software related. I don't think my LCD screen is broken, because it's working normally in beginning and then it gets dimmed. Maybe it's the problem with inverter or some cable? Do you have any suggestions? Any input would be much appreciated. My notebook model is Acer Aspire V3-551G NX.M0FEX.008 LCD dimness before (Windows 8.1) LCD dimness now (Linux Mint 17.1) Thank you!

My son's ACER V3-551G-8454 stopped booting and tried to boot from the network, so I assumed the HDD was dead.  Replaced the HDD, and ordered a recovery disk set from Acer to try and reinstall.  However even with the recovery disk 1 of 3 in the DVD Drive, I still get: "No Bootable Device -- insert boot disk and press any key" The thing is that the "ATAPI CDROM : MAT**bleep**A DVD-ROM UJ8E1" is visible in BIOS and set as the first boot device.  So I can't figure out why the boot media won't read.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

Hello, I had the same issues when I went back to Win7 from 10... The only way i was able to get it to work right is for the first few log in I had to restart my system rather often. I know this isn't a FIX but was what I did.... Load Windows 7, Let it do the Updates for about  3 minutes.... First I tried 8 min but still to many Updates. So 3 works for me.... I am also connected over Wire on a Giga lan with Ultra Fast connection over my ISP... So times could vary for you.... After 3 min I had 20 to 26 updates ready to work. restart the computer. They worked. Did that about 3 times. ON the 4th time I let it down load 90 updates to see if it would work. And it did just fine. Then after that I went to look at missing updates to make sure they were going to update or had..... added some that were OPT.... about 50ish on the last and they all updated fine. But for some reason if I let them all try and update from the start they would fail. I think that is because they were trying to put in updates before other udpates that needed to be done first....  I don't work for Microsoft or Acer and this is only first hand from one of my systems. This isn't a Fix only my way of making it work.  So if you have a fast interent connection and not over WIRELESS I would say that for the first few times you start your computer just let it run for a few min and then go to start button, and restart so you are only doing a few at a time....  LEt me know how...

Hi,only joined a week ago,not really into computers that much,but being a bit silly,got one second hand,it does work,but I have had a few problems,the windows update didn't work,but went onto Microsoft site and sorted that,there were a few other things that needed to be looked at,but the main thing that's come upis,i wanted to get windows live up&working because I use Gmail,and for some reson when I logged on it came up page not found most of the time,however the windows live will not or cant send or receive email,no matter what is done,so I got a scan done by Microsoft & it came back with a lot of things that are not up to date,or not set right,the list is fairly long.

So in my mind I wonder if the best way to resolve thease and any other unkown problems would be to look at having the old 7 completely removed & a new windows 7 installed,as I don't really know what,or whatnot has been done on this laptop.
Any help/thoughts/ideas would be welcome.Dont buy second hand already learnt!!!!!

I have a Qosmio X70-A-12N, newly bought last September, Windows 8.1, 64 bit.


After working properly (and great!) for half a year, the keyboard started to stutter.

If you type a paragraph or two, with let's say 250 words, every then and now, let's say every 10th or 20th word (undpredictable), a key-stroke yields no results. I tried a different keyboard via USB: no problems, so it has to do with the Qosmio in-built keyboard.

It does not depend on specific keys, and it does not depend on the pressure with which you press down the key.
Any key may turn out to be ignored every now and then.

All drivers have been updated to the most recent issues, BIOS is 1.50.

It seems that the problem is most prominent when working on battery (not sure).

Is this a software or a hardware problem? Does the keyboard need to be exchanged?

Answer:Qosmio X70-A - keyboard is not working properly

My first thought was BIOS update but according Toshiba download page you have latest BIOS version.
You know it is not easy to say what is wrong there. I cannot say for sure if there is some problem with the keyboard but maybe you should contact nearest Toshiba service provider, explain the situation and ask for help.

They should know what must be done. at least, they have very good diagnostic tools and it is possible to detect the problem.

Answer:Satellite Pro A - Keyboard isn't working properly

Hi Rob!

Can you please tell us what notebook model you have?

Have you tested an external keyboard on the notebook?
I assume it?s something wrong with the internal keyboard and that must be replaced. You can get a new keyboard from an authorized service provider and they can exchange it for you.

Is that a solution for you?

Hi there!
The other day I inserted a USB cable connecting my phone with my laptop Inspiron 7537 in attempt to charge it. The moment I plugged it in the laptop restarted. I immediately removed the cable. The laptop booted normally but I noticed that my right Shift key stopped working at all. Also the 7 number key on the numbers row below F1-12 buttons types as 9, not as 7, and when Num Lock is on behaves as Arrow Up key.
About the Shift key I tried switchin on/off Sticky Keys, Filter Keys, running Dell Diagnostics and nothing helps. The only sign that I have that is still working is the sound it makes after turning on the Filter Keys, but nothing else.
When reading all the forums there is no such problem, but most often both Shift keys not working.
What can I do?

Thanks.

This issue is identical to a post last year, "Keyboard only working in certain situations in games". Sorry to double post, that thread seems to be closed despite receiving no responses.

ISSUE: After image restore, laptop keyboard no longer works properly in games.

DETAIL ISSUE:
* Keyboard seems to be working fine in all 'standard computing tasks' and in fact when typing into developer consoles, chat bars, etcetera in several games. Typically it does not do anything at all, but I have noticed that sometimes it acts like a stuck key has been pressed; I press "W" to move forward and my character constantly runs forward.
* Keyboard mysteriously seems to work when I am holding the ctrl key. For example, in Portal 2, I can move around completely fine while crouched with CTRL. Spacebar also seems to be unaffected.
* Mouse works fine at all times.
* Keyboard worked fine until I wiped computer and reinstalled everything. Currently fully updated and otherwise perfectly working Vista SP2.

HAVE TRIED:
Validating/reinstalling game software (before I realized it was every game)
Running in windowed mode / fullscreen mode
Checking stickykeys settings
Reinstalling keyboard driver
Updating directx

---

Thanks for any input - even an indirect thought might lead me down the right path! Since I've checked Hardware > Driver > ActiveX > Software I'm not sure what other elements even come into play here.

Answer:Keyboard not working properly in games

Check the settings in the game or buy a game-controller/joystick instead as keyboards were never intended for game playing except for the very simplest of children's games.

Hi folks. I just had to do a reinstall of my Window's 7 and since have had a problem with 2 keys on my keyboard. When I use the apostrophe key, nothing happens, but when I type something after, it appears. It's no big deal really, but I'm rather anal and it just bugs me when something isn't working right.

I have used search here at SF and gone through the tutorials, but can't find anything that quite matches. I tried to update driver's but the little box on the screen tells me driver's are up to date. I checked Device Manager and it doesn't indicate any problem. I checked Keyboard in Control Panel and it says the device is working properly.

If anyone has any suggestion's I would appreciate hearing them, if not I'll learn to live with it.

Recently my keyboard and trackpad stopped working properly.  They DO work, but I must hold my x360 at a 45 degree angle to get them to turn on.  Everything functions perfectly when the laptop is at this angle, but the second I put the laptop down in a "normal" laptop position (keyboard horizontal/screen slightly angled) the keyboard and trackpad shut off.  This makes typing, shall we say, an undesireable task!  I am currently using a portable bluetooth keyboard and a bluetooth mouse as a workaround. I have scoured the internet for a solution and have not had much luck.  I am unsure if this is an orientation sensor calibration problem or if it's a hardware issue.  The only post I've found that mentions a possible solution is this one which mentions an orientation sensor firmware update available only through support:  http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-10-Screen-Auto-Rotation-... I have restored this laptop 3 times now hoping to reset whatever the issue might be, but to no avail. To be clear, this is NOT the rotation problem that is widely reported elsewhere.  Everything seems to be working OK as long as I hold the laptop at a strange angle.  Basically, if I try to use my laptop like this... _/ the keyboard and trackpad don't work.  When I move the laptop to something like this...\/ the keyboard lights up and the trackpad works "normally." OF COURSE, my...
