Preferred Solution: Acer Aspire P3 keyboard not working

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.)

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.

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 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

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 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.

Thanks for sharing. I've seen the battery reset fix a number of issues, but nothing as odd as the 8 key from working.

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***

Hi, newbi here, hello

I have an Acer Aspire One notebook. Two months ago I very stupidly spilled my cider onto my Acer, like a ninja I immediatley turned it upside down to dry out, I havent touched it untill this week.
It starts up, makes a high pitched noise until the windows start up, then shuts up. Key board not working very good, hit and miss as to whether keys work.
I plugged in another keyboard and this has been working until now.
I've tried re-booting but this has not done anything.
Now if I do manage to open anything, I cant do anymore than that, the mouse is working ok.
Is there anything I could do or should I just bin it.
Oh, and there arent any tech minded peeps in this houshold. :-o
 

Answer:Keyboard not responding on Acer Aspire One

One thing I can say, is the Sony Vaio has a very nice rubberized keyboard.

IF you are capable, I would take it apart, and THOROUGHLY clean it.

Other thing that bears mentioning, if it is possible to pull the battery from your laptop/netbook, pull it IMMEDIATELY should you spill any liquids on it.

That kind of goes for ANY piece of battery powered hardware.

You have installed XP without chaning the language and keyboard layout. Your keyboard is currently set to US layout (@ key = " key and vice versa).

You can set it to UK layout by going to the control panel >

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.

Hi GuysI own an acer aspire one v5-121 netbook ( 1 Ghz Amd Dual Core , 2 Gigs Ram , 500 GB HDD , 11.6" ) .Some of the keys on the netbook are malfunctioning . For example , pressing "Down Arrow" shows the digit "1" . So basically , one cannot move down a list of items in windows explorer using the down arrow - and it remains the same in all kinds of application - in the browser , while playing games etc . Simlarly other keys like "Delete" and "Insert" are also malfunctioning .  Another key that is working in an undesirable manner is the "Q" key . Whenever I use the Q key , for eg. in microsoft word , this "q" alphabet jumps to the starting position of the word which I were typing .  So all this makes the netbook almost un-usable for academic needs & beats my purpose .  Hope I can find the right solution to this problem here .

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted anything.



I have a friends laptop I offered to help fix.
I don't remember the exact model, but it's an Acer Aspire One. Small older computer.

For whatever reason the keyboard stopped working properly. I disabled the keyboard drivers and they updated when the computer restarted. that didn't help. I also tried a side keyboard, that doesn't work well either. i did the number lock function fn+11, that doesn't work. The keyboard works some times and most the time it doesn't.

I went into the keyboard setting and tried resting it there and I went into the bios to see if anything was disabled, but everything was okay. i went even further, I unhook the keyboard from the laptop and tried using the side keyboard again and same problem. some times the computer starts acting weird. I go into the Internet(pretty much anything that has to do with typing) random numbers and letters start typing with the laptop keyboard and my side keyboard.

What can I do to fix it? I tried everything, I'm not sure if it's fixable. if i missed something ill reply as soon as i can.

Answer:Acer Aspire One Keyboard failed

Those can be really hard to fix. Youtube might have tear apart guides. But its better to just hook up a bluetooth or usb keyboard to 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. 

Answer:Keyboard unresponsive Acer aspire V3-571

Hi Th3da,
 
Unless you can feel that the key is sticky, I don't know that there is much room to clean and the design is mean to keep stuff from getting in.
 
If the W key is just occassionally not being recognized, it may be an issue with the contact and the KB may need to be replaced.

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.

I have had a problem with my aspire R14 laptop since first getting it a month ago.  When I press a key in a certain are of the keyboard the whole keyboard bounces up and down.  The problems is most noticible on the 7,8,9,u,i,o keys and is less noticible on the keys around those keys.  It is hard to type because those keys respond differently. If I press down on the laptop case above the keyboard all those keys respond just like the other keys.  So I think the problem is that the keyboard and/or case are not secured well in that area.  Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Hi guys,

I am facing a problem with my less-than-a-year-old Acer Aspire 5943g laptop. Certain keys on the keyboard wont work for some time when I switch on the laptop or when I get it off the sleep mode. These keys are Caps Lock, d, s, h, m, and some more. After 5-10 minutes of frustrating around, pressing random keys, these keys activate and start functioning. However, the cycle repeats itself the next time I switch on my computer.

I googled and found that there are many users out there with similar issues but none have managed to get their issues resolved or at least no one has provided a satisfactory answer so far. In this forum there is a exact same topic but that thread is closed. I would be grateful if those users can suggest me what they ended up doing to cope with this issue.

I checked with the Acer people in Indonesia and they say that I will have to give my laptop and it can take up to 14 working days. I might do that but looking for the last ray of hope through this forum.

Many Thanks for your help in advance.

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.

I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.
 

Answer: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.

Maybe it was because the battery ran out. In my defense, it should've been put somewhere visible. In any case, suddenly keys won't work. I can't use the left shift, D, Z, V, N, L and who knows what else. I've done a virus scan and a malware scan and both turned out fine. The only other options I can think of right now are looking for a way to boot in safe mode, finding where the screws are in this thing, or wait for tomorrow to get some compressed air, even though the odds of all those keys getting jammed up by magic flying crumbs seems extremely thin. On a side note, a few weeks before, it would suddenly get stuck on random when I type. Something would turn into sssssssssommeeeeeethiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing. It's even worse when you try to correcr it, you'd sometimes end up deleting everything before that word. Edit: Did a run on keyboardtester.comThe faulty keys make a symmetrical layout with the keyboard. "D K Z V N ." and the up and right arrow key.That can't be a coincidence. Aliens?

hi, i bought an acer aspire 4730z four months ago. i downgraded vista with winXP and its been great until recently. i?m having problem with its keyboard specifically the 4th and 5th line from the top. whenever i press ?s? for example, it displays ?sx?, ?d? becomes ?dc? and so on. when i press ?a? it also engages caps lock. when i press ?vol+? the empowering technology button also goes on. when i press "." it displays ".?" everything is working fine except for the keyboard. can you please help me on whats going on? i know that it still under warranty but i don?t have time to have it repaired coz i have deadlines to beat and i really need my laptop. the service center told me that it will take 1 month the most for rma. i?m currently using a usb keyboard.
