Acer :: 5740G Keyboard Cleaning

May 17, 2010

I have a problem with my keyboard. I think I've been unlucky enough that something has gotten under my 3 and t keys. Not just sitting underneath but in the mechanism itself it would seem. They still work, but they are stiff and I really have to press them to get them to respond. Is there anything I can try to fix it that won't require me to void my warranty or take it to get fixed?

Acer ::5740G Won't Boot

Apr 16, 2010

I finally got my optical drive HDD caddy and installed a perfectly working 320GB HDD pulled from a macbook pro.

after installing it and putting the caddy into where the optical drive was, the computer would start up and display that it found 2 fixed drive and then mouse initialized.

After this... the computer just hangs. Nothing. When i press any key on the keyboard, i get a loud system beep.

I cannot even enter bios setup.

when i press F2 continuously to enter the BIOS only results the "entering setup..." to be displayed for 2 seconds, and then disappear... nothing... computer hangs again

THis do not happen if i pull out the new HDD i added.

computer boots find with or w/o the optical drive.

I have the aspire 5740G. I use an external BT keyboard. When I shut down or restart, bluetooth is always switched off (indication light is not illuminated). I can not log on with my BT keyboard.

Once I am logged on (using Aspire keyboard), I have to manually push the bluetooth button (or Fn + F3) and everything works. I have turned the power-saving feature off, with no effect.

Acer :: Aspire 5740G- Mute Button

Mar 16, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5740G running Win 7. I am really rather pleased with after my HP Pavilion.

I do have one gripe (OK, more than one, but this is the one that niggles most often).

Is there a way to assign Mute to the P button?

Yes, I know I can click on the speaker icon in the tray or press Fn+F8, but there really needs to be a one-button solution for when the phone rings or someone walks in unexpectedly.

Acer :: 5740G: Speech Recognition Not Working

May 20, 2010

I am having a big issue trying to get speech recognition working. When I speak into the microphone, the volume level hardly registers unless I tap on the device. I have Mic Boost turned up to +10db and I don't have any of the effects checked. I also unchecked the "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" radio box for both the Speakers and the Microphone.

I have reinstalled the drivers from Acer's website and then from Realtek's website--neither worked.

Acer Aspire 5740g :: DVD Drive Is Not Showing In (computer)

Nov 13, 2014

I have had to have a new hard drive installed as I got a error message saying old drive failing.

I also had a clean install of windows 7 as I was uncertain whether my discs I created would be ok.

I therefore have not got all of the freebies that were installed on the laptop as new. I now find that the dvd drive is not showing in my computer and nothing happens when I insert disc.

Acer Aspire V3-772G :: Odd Fan Noise After Cleaning?

Jan 27, 2015

Let's start off with: Acer Aspire V3-772G (Intel(R) ore(TM) i7-4702MQ CPU @2.20GHz, 8 gb Ram)
 
Regardless: After noticing a slight dip in preformance from games and use of my laptop in general so i decided to clean the fans. As this laptop is close to impossible to open up i decided to clean it the easy way, to blast compressed air directly into the fan in slow and infrequent blasts. After getting alot of dust out of the system i turned the laptop back on only to hear this "cd-reading"-like hissing from the left side of the laptop (where the fan is). Being worried i might have broken something i turned it stright off, and then on again realising there was not much i could do about it right now.
 
I am worried i might have spun the fan to fast, causing this, as the fan did not make this sound when i bought it new or before i cleaned it for that sake. It was bought online from a norwegian store (i currently live in norway) at 2014-08-18. I thought i would ask here before i contacted the store or support to see if this is just me over-reacting or if

Acer :: Is It Possible To Change 1810/1410 Keyboard For A Thinkpad Keyboard

May 22, 2010

Had a search on the forums and couldn't really find this.

Is it possible to change the Acer 1810T keyboard to a thinkpad one?

Are they the same size? Could it work?

I love the Acer, just not its keyboard and miss the thinkpad keyboard - which really encourages typing. The acer really doesn't.

If the thinkpad keyboard isn't possible, what else might be?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Keyboard Versus Acer Aspire One Keyboard

Feb 24, 2009

I currently have an AA1 and am curious to those who tried typing on both the HP Mini and the AA1 keyboards and noticed a difference. I believe the HP's keyboard is 92% and the AA1's is 89% I believe. It feels "okay" to type on, obviously not the best due to its size compared to a normal keyboard, but am wondering if the HP's is worth the price jump (paid 300 for mine).

Dell :: Cleaning My 1720

Feb 11, 2009

My laptop doesnt over heat or anything but I have had this dell inspiron 1720 for over a year now and I really would like to clean out the fans/vents.

I read people's posts and they make it sound so easy to do. Well i flipped my laptop over and i look near the vents. There are no screws near the vent.

I also checked my manual and it does not show you how to get to the fan without taking the complete laptop apart. Is the 1720 really this hard to get to the fan or am i overlooking something?

I really don't feel like taking the screen off and then the keyboard just to get the fan.

HP/Compaq :: Cleaning Out The Fan On The Dv5t

Jan 27, 2009

I wanted to clean the fan of my laptop by using the air compressor periodically so that dust wouldn't build up. Is there a recommended way to do it? Does the fan suck from the bottom and blow out the back and side? I was planning to blow the air compressor into the bottom side where i believe the fan is sucking air. Is it ok to do this while the laptop is on or should I turn it off?
