Acer Aspire V3 5729 :: Keyboard Suddenly Stopped Working
Jan 29, 2015
I woke up this morning and for some reason my keyboard has suddenly stopped working it was ok last night. The touchpad and touchscreen are fine but nothing on the keyboard works? Only had it for about 5 months....
I have a problem with the touchscreen of my laptop Acer r7 ! i was watching a movie form an external HDd when the touchscreen stopped working! i rebooted the system (nothing happened) and i also made an factory restore! STILL NOTHING!!! the touchscreen is NOT WORKING!!!
Earlier this week I wanted to use Pokerstars, but I was due an update (I already had it installed). I updated and loaded it up, although it seemed to lag at the log in screen, so I CTR+ALT+DEL and ended it in task manager. I reopened the program and had the same issue, so I task manager'd it again and it still didn't work. So I rebooted. When I rebooted, all of a sudden I had no option of connecting to a wireless network - only ethernet and VPN in the settings.
I have been into device manager and can see that I have a Qualcomm Atheros Driver in my network devices, although it has an amber warning with code 52 (driver unsigned).
I tried going onto Acer website and downloading the latest driver, which comes with a set up package - unfortunately this didn't work. I tried uninstalling the driver and pointing to the driver that I had downloaded manually; but every time it tells me 'You have the best driver set up for this device' and reverts back to the unsigned driver.
I have tried FN + F3 to disable and enable flight mode - no impact.
I read somewhere about updating bios settings - but there are none in the download section when I put my serial number into the Acer website.
I also tried downloading drivers from other external website and downloaded some third party program called 'Driver Assist' as the way the page was set up fooled me into thinking that was the legit download - it didn't work, and I have subsequently uninstalled it
I have only had the laptop just over a month new, and all had been working until then. Extremely unlikely to be any other spyware as the only things I have installed on here are Steam (FM15) and Pokerstars. I don't even really use this for browsing, just those two apps.
Further info - not sure if relevant but I installed the Acer WLAN + Bluetooth setup as a potential fix, and the bluetooth element seems to be functioning fine - not sure if they're on the same integrated card?
I have an acer aspire 5750z computer, a while back my wifi suddenly stopped working, but the ethernet is fine. I've searched the internet and tried to install the required driver (Atheros), but when I try it says that the "drive might have been ejected please reinsert it now" or something along those lines. When I go to the driver manager the wifi driver isn't even listed under network adapters, oonly the ethernet drver was there. I've heard that if your computer has had a virus or if you had dropped it the wifi card might have been damaged and I wanted to know if that's true, and if so can I buy a new wifi card?
Ive had this Acer laptop E1-510p with window 8.1 and all of the sudden some of the keys accross the keyboard stop working. These keys are random and even when i plug in a generic keyboard it does the same thing ....
I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop, and up until maybe two weeks ago my in-built speakers had been working perfectly fine.
When I tried using them again this week, I noticed the speakers stay absolutely quiet and don't make any sounds. However, if I plug in a headset on the onboard soundcard jack the sounds work fine.
I have had this laptop with me on multiple trips but afaik this happened during one, so is it possible that something has disconnected inside the laptop itself or is it maybe a common bug with these laptops?
I have a xps15z and the hdmi connection suddenly stopped working about a week ago. I have tried everything I can think of to get it working again, reinstalled drivers, tried different leads, different monitors but no success yet.
The weird thing is when you plug in the hdmi lead the external monitor is detected on the nvidia control panel and the windows display settings. Also I can scroll across to where the extended screen is and drag windows over there but nothing shows up on the monitor. The monitor says there is no connection.
Relevant system specs: windows 7, nvidia Geoforce GT 525m graphics card (runs the external display), Intel(R) HD Graphics family (runs main laptop display).
For about a year, I've had an SDXC card in the built-in card reader of my Folio 13-1020us.
It's been working fine until a couple days ago. Then something I was downloading to it failed to complete, which is how I noticed that it had stopped working. Now, it doesn't appear in drives under My Computer, and it doesn't appear in Device Manager.
In an older HP laptop, I can at least see the card's drive letter and the name I gave it, so I think the card itself must be fine. But I can't see anything at all when I place it in the Folio.
I have a feeling the reader itself has just failed. I'm out of warranty by just a few months. Do I have to extend my warranty and send it in to get it fixed? I do not want to use an external reader because I use the card as extra storage space.
Operating system: Windows 7 SD card: PNY brand, 64GB SDXC
I am trying to troubleshoot a E1-531-4836 the Right hand side of the keyboard has stopped working, and the touchpad does not respond properly either. I tried reloading drivers, a system reset, and I am left with the same problem. I have plugged a USB mouse and keyboard in, and I can sort of use the computer, I can not get all functions to work completely.
My laptop's touch screen function stopped working just a while ago. When I shut down my laptop, tere's this windows update that lasted for more or less an hour. After that, the touch screen just stopped working. Note that there hasn't been any program installation prior to the antivirus uninstallation - all programs and files contained in the laptop is as it was the moment I bought it. *Laptop's running Windows 8 Single Language
My D620 suddenly stopped working with an AC adaptor, won't charge the battery, won't operate without the battery. I have several AC adaptors and none of them work now. However, when docked the ac works fine and the battery charges with no issue.
I tried plugging several devices into a USB 3.0 port on my z510 this morning to no avail. The USB 2.0 port is working(I have a mouse plugged into it and it works fine) but the USB 3 ports will not work at all. I tried looking at device manager; it says everything is working properly. Power management doesn't turn any of the ports off.
It was working fine 2 days ago. Is it possible to turn the ports off? Because nothing is being recognized.
I looked for drivers on Lenovo's site; no USB drivers for windows 8.1 at ALL. What do I do?
X220 tablet (about 2.5 yrs old, out of warranty) was working completely fine last night; this morning, no sound is coming from the laptop, either through speakers or through headphones (audio jack). I am, however, able to get sound through a bluetooth-connected speaker.
I had hoped this was a software issue. Tried uninstalling/installing all sound devices, updating BIOS, updating drivers, system restore to previous date, rebooting a million times, etc. No joy.
When I run the sound troubleshooter, it says that no speaker, headset, or headphone appears to be plugged in. The sound icon has a little red circle/white X next to it. When I try to plug in headphones, nothing happens -- does not seem to detect the event. When I press the mute and volume buttons on the tablet, no response.
Also, under Device Manager -> Sound, video and game controllers, it lists only "Bluetooth Hands-free Audio" and "Intel Display Audio". I don't think either of these is the normal X220 audio driver, is it? What else should be there? I downloaded the Conexant Audio Software from Lenovo's site (this is what came up when I searched for audio drivers for the X220 tablet), and tried to install it, but halfway through, it said the install failed because it couldn't locate the device for the driver.
This sounds like it's a hardware problem -- any way to verify? Also, which piece of hardware exactly? Is it the sound card (that's presumably integrated into the motherboard --> no easy fix)? I'm guessing it's not the speakers themselves since the headphone jack is also affected, but what is my best line of testing at this point to confirm that?
I have an acer aspire 5920g laptop that has recently stopped working , when I power on the computer the fan goes on and the power on light also goes on and two other lights flash once but nothing comes up on the screen and the computer never starts the boot sequence....the fan then goes off but the power light stays on , I already put new thermal compound on the processor and graphics card...I tried removing the ram modules , the wifi card and the hard drive ect. nothing seems to work ,
I purchased an Aspire E5-511 about a week ago. At first, I had no problems with the USB ports and what I plugged in would be recognized and work, but now none of them will recognize anything that is plugged into them. This is for multiple devices that work on other computers, so it is not the devices, and obviously it's not the hardware if all 3 simultaneously stopped working. Googling the problem has led nowhere. Additionally, the webcam used to come up automatically in the "Camera" app; this no longer works either and it says "To get started, connect a camera." I have restored the system back to factory defaults, had all files deleted and re-did the entire initial process all over again, to no avail.
I have had my acer laptop just over a year know and everything has been fine until a few months ago. All of a sudden my dvd drive stopped working which was a major problem as I routinely back up my hard drive as I use it for work. The warrenty has runout.
I have run into an issue with my Acer laptop which is leaving me really frusrated. For some reason one morning my touch screen stopped working. There has been no damage to my screen at all.
I have concted Acer Technical Support which in usual fashion were of completely.... Before I got in touch with Acer Technical Support I tried:
Refreshing the HID Monitor drivers Removing/Reinstalling the HID Monitor driversBoth of these were unsucessful, according to Device Manager, the HID monitor is working just fine. Upon calling Acer Technical Support their suggestion was to reinstall Windows because the tech though that it was an software issue.
I just reinstalled Windows are still have the same issue. Device Manager shows that the hardware is fine and functional from a driver standpoint.
I've also tied ensuring that the cable behind the monitor is in tact as in this post: [URL] Thus far nothing has worked.
My touchscreen on the laptop stopped working properly after I upgraded to Windows 8.1. I tried installing a few different drivers, and the touchscreen will work temporarily, until I put the computer to sleep and wake it up again. Also, I get an error message that a "USB Device fails" when the touchscreen stops working....not sure what that's about.
I've had my netbook for a few years and this error message has been appearing bottom right since I got it. Both USB ports have always worked fine. Device manager it shows a USB controller as not recognised by Windows. f I try to 'update' it says wndows doesn't recognise it. I can disable it but of course it renistalls on reboot and the message starts again.
I ignored it as it didn't do any harm. Recently I did a factory reset expecting this to do the trick but it didn't. I also updated the bios to v2034 I think but there's not much content to it so I've not got any USB options there.
I'm wondering if there are chipset drivers I need to get, though the Acer site doesn't offer anyting new there.
I have a HP pavilion G6 model number C0Y35EA#ABU. I had an automatic update for Windows 8 and my keyboard stopped working immediately after.I have checked device manager and it says there is no keyboard and gives a code of C24.If I go into setup before Windows the keyboard works fine so I know it's not a hardware issue.
Keyboard backlit stopped working (it used to work earlier). In BIOS the keyboard is now defined as a nonbacklight (BIOS was updated by L521XA13W.exe from dell.com/support/drivers), not sure how it was defined while working...
I've looked for a solution at community.dell.com/support-forums: - pressing Fn+F6 doesn't switch it on,- launching BacklitKB.exe from QuickSet says the backlight is on but it's not (I can adjust brightness, timing, turn it off/on but it still won't work),- reinstalling the QuickSet doesn't work,- Windows Mobility Center lists the backlit keyboard, but doesn't bring it on;- putting it to sleep and waking it up also doesn't work as well as restarting it.
My keyboard suddenly stopped working after waking my computer up from sleep. The on screen and touch keyboard still function normally as well as the mouse touch pad built into the laptop, but the physical keyboard does not. The LED for the CAPS LOCK button wont even light up when pressed. The keyboard back lights however do turn on and off when the computer is powered on or flipped between tablet and laptop mode.
I have tried restarting the computer on several occasions as well as doing a complete shut down. I have updated all drivers and even uninstalled all of my keyboard drivers to no effect. I have tried running a diagnostic, but I either get an error that says the diagnostic could not run or that no data has been collected by the testing. All other scans of my computer show no issues.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and the 98% ofthe keyboard has stopped working. I turned it on and tried to log on but nothing. I tried restarting it, taking out the battery and even cleaning the keyboard still nothing.
