I was considering getting Acer AS1810T-8638. However, I looked up keyboard layout, some pictures show back-slash () not above enter key, but next to left shift key. (left shift key's length is shortened by half)
Some other pictures show it at where it should be (above enter key).
Since I use back-slash a lot, I need it to be at the right place.
Can anyone who bought this model tell me where is key is located on models being shipped currently?
Can someone please post a picture of the german keyboard version from Acer Timeline 4810? I'm considering buying one from Germany (lower price, SU9400 available) and I need to know if all the keys needed to my native language are there.
How to make my keyboard entries match the keypad layout? I have tried several English keyboard layouts available from the installed files but none of them exactly match my layout. For instance one layout (English International) require a space after every " or ' before the character will appear. I can understand this as it allows for certain special characters related to other languages. If I change to plain English then the key comes out as #. I have downloaded Microsoft's keyboard mapping application but it does not seem to work in Win8. I don't get any layout diagrams when I load a keyboard file. I am pretty sure it is the layout file because an external keyboard gives the exact same characters as the Dell factory installed kbd. I know there is commercial mapping software available but I don't want to buy it and find it won't work just as Microsoft's doesn't.
I've an Aspire 5720-602G16Mi which has no installed bluetooth module, but has the button fitted in the keyboard (comes up with "NO BLUETOOTH DEVICE"). I've seen all the threads on this and obtained the correct module (and driver if required) and know where on the motherboard to fit it - near the front of the laptop - probably socket BT1, so here's the problem!
I can't get the bottom off the case to access the right spot! :-(
I've taken out the battery, removed the 2 access plates - (I know how to remove the keyboard and the hard drive if neccessary) -BUT even when I've then taken out ALL of the visible screws I can't get the bottom of the case off.
AM I MISSING SOMETHING?
I realise there are "clips" all round the base but I also know that it's a fragile plastic so I don't want to force anything.
A step by step guide or a link to an existing one would be useful ( there may be one here but I can't find it)
i would like to know the significance of the second set of numbers on this computer....acer aspire 5720-4230. what is the 4230? im thinking of getting this laptop for my college kid. ive found some pretty low priced ones. im more concerned with dependability than looks or speed.
here are the specs on it:

I have aspire 5720 bought in 2007. It stopped suddenly. On pressing power button start up light comes on which stays about 5 sec and switches off. Tried with and without battery but same. Fan starts and in a se laptop is off. I have removed HDD and put it back and same to ram. Also did power reset by holding on power button for a minute without battery plugged in but no luck.
whether the AC power adaptor itself should show an LED light on while it is plugged into the power (and not just when it is charging/connected to the laptop too)?
My Dad has come over here on holiday with an Acer Aspire 5720 Model ICL50. It had been working fine, however this morning we started getting the low battery warning sound, despite the power cable being plugged in. We have taken plugs in and out, taken the battery out etc, but the laptop will show no sign of receiving more power via the adaptor.
I figure its either one of two things - either the adaptor has died, or there is an issue with the power connector in the back of the laptop itself, perhaps it got knocked and damaged internally or something.
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).
i turn on my computer again and it goes to acer arcade instanton. i exit it and then when vista boots up it tells me to chkdsk. im suspicious but i skip it... when i login it tells me that my user profile is messed and thata bunch of stuff is corrupt. i then do chkdsk and luckily it manages to repair it and i still have my files. however all of my settings and user accounts are gone... also a lot of things dont feel right.
i think after backing up i might do a reinstall. just to confirm, if i use the recovery dvd, D:/ will not be touched right? (D:/ is where my files will be saved)
My Acer Aspire One, which I love, does one thing that drives me NUTS! The touchpad, mainly noticed in games (FPS are the most detectable), doesn't respond while pressing keys... IE, I press "W" to run forward, and the touchpad doesn't work simultaniously... I can run, or look around, but not both at the same time... why is that? No other touchpad in a laptop I've ever used had the limitaion? And, when using an external mouse, the mouse works great, meaning I can move around pressing keys on the keyboard all while looking around. It just gets annoying having to stop, look around, then move, stop, look around, move, etc.
Is this a driver problem or a hardware problem? Even the EEE Pc that I use to have didn't do this, so why the new Acer? Curious, and no idea how to fix it.... Maybe it's even a setting somewhere I'm unaware of...
i've an aspire 5585 whose keyboard wont work anymore. i cant even enter bios(using f2 key at the acer logo splash screen where it says "press f2 to enter setup"), but the wierd thing is that if i turn on the laptop with F2 key pressed i get in the bios but still the keyboard wouldn't work and cannot navigate through bios menu. my touchpad works fine
I have a aspire 3690 running vista. The left side of the keyboard types fine. The right side some keys don't work other type multiple letters and preforms different action. I replaced the keyboard twice thinking i bought a faulty one but still have the same problem. If i use a external USB or the onscreen keyboard it works fine. I also flashed the bio and still no change.
I have an Acer Aspire 5630 and since 2 weeks i'm having problems with the touchpad and the keyboard. I tried reinstalling Windows Vista which didn't work. Then i tried windows 7 and it also has the same problem( also tried new drivers etc) . With an extern keyboard and mouse it is able to use te laptop.
fn+ f7 doenst work. (because de keyboard doenst work )
The strange part is that when i acces the bios, de keyboard works.
how to replace the keyboard? My daughter spilled spaghetti on the keyboard and some of the keys doesn't work anymore . If anybody knows how to replace it with photos and instructions I would appreciate it a lot.
I've seen how to replace the keyboard on laptops, but I'm having difficulty getting the cover panel between the display hinges and the top of the keyboard, on this Aspire 5920. Anyone know the trick to removing this panel, so I don't end up cracking it?
just bought a keyboard for acer aspire 3630 due to rsi - laptop appears to 'install' keyboard (no driver just plug in usb and use apparently) but then i cant actually type - it works fine on the desktop - im also using a usb mouse
