Preferred Solution: my acer Aspire Switch 12 keyboard not working, key...

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is the keyboard charged ? It cannot charge while in front of the display (don't ask). Which USB ? 3.0 or 2.0 or both ?

(i'm going to try and explain this the best i can)My Acer Aspire E15 laptop's keyboard has stopped working so I'm typing this with an external keyboard. I've only had this laptop it for a little over a year and having the keyboard just stop working is very dissapointing and a little frustrating. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any possibility of getting this repaired, because I've been informed that the keyboards of these laptops are connected to the motherboard in a way that would require getting a whole new motherboard just to replace the keyboard. I don't know if this is true or if there is anyway to repair my keyboard without replacing the whole **bleep** motherboard, so if anyone knows it would be awesome if you could help me out. 

Answer:Acer Aspire E15 keyboard not working?

Not sure where they got that info. However you can replace the keyboard. That does take some doing. But I think a person would most likely replace the whole top part. That is track pad and all. I would say look on eBay for you type and see if they have any.When you take apart you remove power, battery, 14 or 16 screws from the bottom. Remove drive from the bay. Use old credit card to separate the 2 half. Then there is some ribbon cables that would need to be removed carefully. If you got the whole thing. Then put in New one same way you took out old. However if you just got the keyboard you will bee to take out 8 to 10 more screws peeling tape from the ribbon cables and to access the small screws then the keyboard can be removed. For me I would try and find whole top plate would be less work.James

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I want to ask you how to fix it? (the title says it all), it's not even work in the BIOS menu (well i can't even enter it :v)
I'm using windows 7 64-bit, I am typing with my father's laptop. Sorry for my bad english, anyway Thanks.
(And because I'm new here, i don't know if this is in the right or wrong section XD )
 

Answer: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.

I'm pretty sure my Aspire PS-131 is an All In One rather than a notebook. Feel free to move this if it's in the wrong place. This morning, seemingly all of a sudden, my PS-131's bluetooth keyboard stopped working. I charged it until the light turned blue, but the tablet no longer registers the keyboard on the Bluetooth screen. Sometimes an Unknown device will appear on the bluetooth screen, but I can't connect to it.  I have no idea what to do and I can't find anything online about it. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone else have an idea about where to begin? I've tried contacting Acer's live chat, but the serial number on my tablet isn't verifiable.

I can use the keyboard when starting in safe mode but not when windows starts??? The Tried reinstalling the driver but didn't work

Answer:Acer Aspire keyboard is not working

When Safe Mode works properly but Normal Mode does not, it typically means that a driver or some software has just been installed that is interfering with Normal Mode.The types of software that can do that are drivers, antivirus products, third-party firewall products, CD/DVD burning software or virtual CD/DVD software.If you can remember installing anything like that, uninstall it in Safe Mode then restart.

I just recently encountered a problem with my Acer Aspire E3-112 notebook keyboard that I had been able to fix and would like to share the solution with anyone who may encounter the same problem. I had used a USB flash drive to copy some files without any issues. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that the 8 key on the keyboard had stopped responding, but all other keys worked as normal. I had pressed Fn-F11 (NumLk) and the 8 key started working again. Pressing Fn-F11 again disabled the NumLk mode, and the 8 key also stopped working again. I tried rebooting the notebook, shutting down and powering back up, reinstalling keyboard driver, etc, but nothing worked. To rule out Windows OS related settings, I rebooted into BIOS, and noticed that the 8 key still didn't work when I tried to change the time, but the other number keys worked fine. The solution that finally solved the problem was to shut down the notebook, and then using a paper clip, push it into the Batery reset pinhole on the bottom of the notebook for four seconds. Upon normal powerup, the 8 key started working again. If your notebook has a removable battery, then removing and reinstalling the battery might have the same effect.

Does anyone have any further suggestions that I could try? At present I'm using the 'virtual keyboard'.Thanks

Answer:Acer Aspire all-in-one desktop Wireless Keyboard not working

If it were me, I'd try the K/B on another computer. If it works, then you know the K/B is good and the issue must be the computer it's presently connected to. This would mean the issue is likely software(drivers). You might want to check the manufacturer's website and see if there are newer Windows 7 drivers for the device. If there are, download and install them and reboot and see if your K/B doesn't work then.It matters not how straight the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate;I am the captain of my soul.***William Henley***

You could try resetting it...

1. Remove the battery (if possible) and also the adapter.
2. Press, and hold, the power button for about 20 seconds.
3. Then plug in the power, and see if the laptop will boot and go to the desktop. If it does, then put the battery back in. If it doesn't, try connecting it to an external monitor and see if you can get that to work.

I just got an Aspire switch 10 a few days ago. Last night it wanted to install some updates when I went to shut it down. I noticed it seemed to be hung up on the last one (81 of 81), but when I was ready to go to bed the screen was dark, so I closed it (it was attached to the removable keyboard). Today it won't turn on. It won't respond at all. I thought maybe the battery had died if it didn't power down properly, but I had it plugged in for two hours. Nothing responds. No power indicator light (it's so new I don't know if it even has one). No heat. No sound. No response. I tried pressing the power button. Pressing and holding the power button for a minute. Pressing (and pressing and holding) power + vol up and power + vol down. I can't figure out how to remove the battery (I'm not sure the back even comes off). I can't think of anything else to try. What's going on? How can I fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

I recently recieved an Acer Aspire Switch 11 for christmas and i immediately loaded it with low requirement games (the 2 in 1 is not very powerful obviously), for example. I downloaded Terraria and it runs like a dream on this cute little tablet/laptop. the only issue is that when i press down the keys A or D to go left or right, i cant control the mouse with the touchpad, it simply wont move, i can see it and everything it just refuses to move and the only way to fix it is to either release the keys or top move the pointer repeatedly until it decides to move. I would appreciate any help on this matter. thank you,

You are experiencing this because by default there is a delay setup in the settings of your Precision touchpad. This helps to prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while you type. You can turn this off or change the delay.
 
 
Use the following steps to disable the delay,
 

Open the Charms menu, then select Settings.
Click on Change PC settings.
Under PC settings, tap or click PC and devices.
Tap or click Mouse and touchpad.
On the right, scroll to the bottom and find the drop-down box. Tap or click on the box and select the option you want. In your case, select No delay (always on).

 
Another option would be to use an external mouse when playing games.

Hi all,          I have an Acer Aspire Switch 10 SW5-012-16AA 2-in-1 detachable laptop/tablet and I purchased it in Feb. of this year. Recently I've had the issue of when it's charging, the light on the power button/lock doesn't light up anymore and now when I press the button it really doesn't lock the screen anymore which causes my battery to die too fast and buttons to be hit while it's in my bag. Every other button on that side works just fine, it's just the power/lock button. Does anyone else have this issue? Should I see if this is covered under the warranty (if not man. I have an additional warranty with another company) and see if it can be fixed? I use this for college and it's my only computer so I hope it's not dying on me already!

 Hello and HELP !!                            Is there anybody with any idea on how to get past the password lock screen on the above computer ? Nothing sinister - just a forgotten password. I bought one for the wife for her birthday but have been unable to show her how to use it because i forgot the password i used on set up.   Hoping for help thanks 

Answer:ACER ASPIRE SWITCH 10 - Password problems

You have several options... Do you have another user logon on this laptop?  If yes, log on with that user, then create a new account for your wife, and copy over the data from the old user to the new account. If no other user, then either find someone with Microsoft DaRT software which includes an option to reset the password, or you will have to do a complete restore back to manufacturer's defaults.  Think you get to that by holding the <Alt> key then hit <F10> key whilst machine is booting up immediately after switch on. Hope that helps...

Towards the middle of last year I bought Acer R-15 from Best buy for my son who was going to Undergraduate school as I was impressed with the reviews on teh Laptop and I thought it would serve him well for Mechanical Engineering undergard course.
The power switch to the Laptop recently stopped working.   The Laptop will not turn on.   Brought it to Geek Squad technicians and they said that the power swich is not working nad they will not be able to repair it in store and it has to be sent out and would take 3/4 weeks before they wil get it back.   My son thinks it is a simple relacement of the switch which is connected thru a small I/O board.  As teh new semester has started, he cannot afford to be out of Laptop as he has projects and other work.   I have been searching for the part but am not abl et ofind it.    The LAptop has a MFG date of 06/12/2916 and has SNID of ***   with SNo NXGCFA0016***.
 
My son said he shoudl be able to swap the switch If we can find one.   i am not sure how quickly to get one.   The choice of sending the LAptop back to Acer to get it repaired under warranty will take too long.   I am not sure how to get the needed part,  Any help or suggestion are really appreciated.

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.

Answer:acer aspire switch 10 isn't listed on windows 10

I show the Switch 10 is on our list of Windows 10 qualified products (http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/windows10-eligible-models), but did not see drivers for this product on our site. I have sent a message requesting that the drivers be loaded if they are currently available. Please check our support site again in 2 or 3 days. It may take longer than 2 to 3 days depending on driver availability.

Hi,
I would really like your help as my Acer Aspire L320 doesn't switch on. when i press the power button the on light switches on and all you can hear is the fans switching on but there is no light on the keyboard or mouse and the display is blank i have tried another power supply but still no luck.

are you able to report the error message if any? normally BIOS isn't hard to update on modern PC like the Switch 10, you just need to double click the .exe file and follow onscreen instructions, like having the AC charger connected.

Hello, My english isn't really what you call good, but i will try my best. I bought the acer aspire switch a few days ago and this evening I have decided to get my router going once again. Evertything worked fine. My older Laptop and my mobile Phone connected without trouble and the Desktop-PC does as well. Only thing that doesn't connect to the Wifi is my Aspire Switch. It only connects if i deactivate the Security Passkey. As soon as i turn on WPA, WPA 2 or WPA/WPA2 it just disconnects (the router says there is psk/tkip is activated - dunno what this means, but i even if i change tkip to aes the aspire switch won't work). Would be great if you guys have an idea. I am not exactly an expert when it comes to problem like this, but the aspire switch can't be incompatiible to my router because it connects just fine if i turn off WPA. reagrds edit: The device uses Windows 8.1 i haven't changed a thing yet.

Answer:Acer Aspire Switch 10 - Wlan/Wifi-Problem

twenty,
 
Have you tried the Switch 10 on another wireless network to see if the problem persists? I am not familiar with the router you are using and if it is an older router it may need a firmware update or I might even suggest replacing it with a newer wireless router.
 
I would first try connecting to another wireless network as it seems the switch 10 is able to connect just not with the router/settings your are using. If the Switch 10 was having a hardware issue, you would not be able to connect at all.

It would begin to start then blue light would go out but the PSU fan would continue to run. I would unplug the power coard and plug it back in and the computer would start and run just fine. I replaced the PSU but now it is still not starting intermittently.

I recently installed Skyrim on my laptop and in the options it shows only the intel graphics card and suggests a low graphics setting. When I change to 'always use Nvidia' in the Nvidia control panel, the Nvidia card appears, ultra high settings are recommended and as soon as I start the game it crashes. From then on, until I switch the settings back to auto my laptop crashes right after startup whenever I do something, like open a browser. I'm using an external monitorwith 1920x1200 setting, not the laptop monitor, but the Nvidia card should be able to handle that, right? I also wonder about the auto-select feature, if the laptop crashes when I set to Nvidia only, did it ever select that card before?

After revert some stuff is not working properly (like native mail app), so I wanted to do a reset to factory settings. Now issue is, that Acer eRecovery is not working. Neither as app nor after Alt-F10. As app it gives an "hard drive is not configured for default factory settings" communicate. And after Alt+F10 it's something about disc being not connected. Recovery partition is there (don't know what there is on it, bu it takes 7GB of precious SSD space), OEM folder on SSD is also present. But recovery does not work. Any way to resolve this problem? Because if I have to pay for recovery USB I rather buy box version of Windows 8, repartition all discs and clean install Windows.

Wife has small Acer laptop running 8.1 and running wirelessly. It keeps on losing internet connection although shows full wi-fi signal. Icon shows asterisk and network connection shows 'limited'. Acer suggested complete reset which has been done several
times and then have installed new motherboard but it still has the problem. Have checked for and installed network adapter driver (Realtek) updates but problem still persists. It works ok for about 1 or 2 weeks after a reset but then it all happens again.
TalkTalk changed the router to eliminate that.  My desktop runs without any problems wired or wirelessly as do two other laptops (all now updated to Windows 10) and two Android phones. Dare not update Acer to Win 10 until I know it is not Acer problem
as guarantee about to run out. Spent 6 months trying to sort it.
