Acer :: Mousepad- Left Clicker Broke

Aug 24, 2008

The mouse part of it works perfectly, as does the right clicker - but the left one is completely useless, which isn't good as that's the most important one.

I noticed this a few weeks ago that it was no longer as 'secure' as the right one, i.e. is seemed to be giving way on one side of the left clicker, and was moving about a bit in it's place. Now it's gotten progressively worse and no longer is able to click even, so it doesn't work and I have had to plug in an optical mouse to the usb port.

I lifted the little mouse clicker slot up with a knife to see what is wrong but all that seems to be the problem is that it is incredibly loose and no longer sits straight in its positioning. Underneath both clickers there is a small button attached to the mainboard and obviously the clicker needs to touch this to perform its' actions. But the left one doesn't seem to be reaching..

So basically I want to know is it likely that Acer would repair this for me? The laptop is still under warranty.

I guess the only long-term solution is an entire new mousepad, which would be expensive.

And that'd suck because 3/4 of it works perfectly and it's just this one button.

Dell :: Broke The Left Ctrl Key On My Latitude D800

Feb 12, 2009

I think I've bent one of the metal connecting parts on the actual keyboard too, so I think I'll need to replace the whole thing and not just the key.

In either case this key is not getting back on. Do current Dell Latitudes use the same keyboard, or am I going to have a hell of a time finding a replacement?

I took the key off because the button wasn't working, and sure enough there was a big wad of dust/hair blocking it...problem is I think I was too forceful when I removed it.

Notebook is a 2003 model.

Acer Aspire ES-512 :: Touchpad And Clicker Quit Working

Feb 5, 2015

Bought an Acer E 15 ES1-512-c88m first of December. Barely got 12-20 hours of use out of it. Worked fine for 3 weeks and then all of the sudden last night I opened the lid after sitting idle plugged in for 20 hours and immediately the touchpad began acting like I was trying to highlight, drag, or draw boxes around things continuously - when all I was trying to do was move he cursor. At first I assumed it was cold or confused. Shutdowns, restarts, HID driver reinstalls did nothing. After a hour or two of troubleshooting the touchpad performance worsened, to where at this point NO clicks of taps of any kind will work, so I can't pick or select anything - and am forced to navigate menus and options by keyboard - many of which I can't get to.

Final result: all I can do now with the touchpad is move the cursor around, but nothing else. The clicker is mechanically free and never stuck.I'm disappointed because my older Acer 10" D255 from 2011 has never had any issues.Sadly the only impression I'm getting is that the circuitry for the "click" function either shorted or has somehow gone "out of spec" or "out of cal". There is no way to even find out what kind of touchpad it is, because it's not listed on any data sheets.I'm guessing the best thing to do is get it replaced free of charge because it is practically new, but I wondered if there may be any other solutions with less hassle. Who would do this - Acer or NewEgg (where I got it from)?

Acer Aspire 5742Z-4685 :: Right Click Does Not Work On Mousepad

Sep 5, 2014

The right click button does not work on the mouse pad, as well  as on a usb mouse. I have used Acer factory recover disks to restore it to out of the box condition. Same issue. If you use control panel to switch buttons then the only thing that happens is the cursor moves no click at all.  Also after a period of time letting the computer warm up suddenly the cursor is working but even the left click will not function it will highlight the icon but not allow you to click it. I am wondering is the only solution to replace the motherboard since it appears to be a heat aggravated problem. And before I forget, yes I have replaced the drivers a couple of times clean install as well

Acer :: Left 4 Dead Lag On 6920

Mar 31, 2009


I have the above model and it seems to be performing quite nicely. However, what I've noticed on all Valve games is that after a few minutes, the frame rates drop from mid 70s-80s (low) to 10-15 regardless of whatever resolution, texture or ingame setting I change post this sudden drop. restarting the game makes the problem temporarily dissapear but is back within a few minutes. The effect is especially noticeable when there are about 30 zombies on top of you

I've tried disabling one core, reducing sound to low and have even monitored temperatures via nvidias system checker as well as speed fan. At no point does GPU/ CPU temperature exceed 60 degree celcius. Have also tried several drivers all the way from 178.x to 182.x (using modified infs) to no avail. Please share your input regarding this problem.

I also accidentally uninstalled acer bioware protection and upon reinstalling cannot set it up since clicking a blinking finger on the setup menu states "Unable to select fingerprint device!"

Music sounds rather "tinny" and baseless using these inbuilt speakers. I assumed with all this dolby gee whizz, id get a sublime experience

Dell :: Tab Key Broke

Sep 4, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. I got it in April. Tonight while I was typing, something didn't feel right with my Tab key. All of a sudden, it popped up and off out of no where.

After looking at the "x hinge" on the back, there is a small chipped piece of plastic that hooks it back onto the keyboard that's broken off.

Dell is saying I can't get a replacement X-Hinge and that I have to pay to replace my entire keyboard.

Is this true? Do I not have any other alternative than to be completely raped by this company? The laptop is only 4 months old.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Mousepad

Somehow on the left side of my mousepad a slight tear has appeared in the pad. Initially I didn't have any problems with it but now my mousepad has begun to start staying in a vertical line and not allowing me to scroll side to side. I gotta believe that its from this tear, the tear is like the surface in this spot has begun create like a slight lower in a spot.

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Left Keys Not Working

Apr 21, 2009

I have had this laptop for only a year and the other day when plugging in my power while the laptop was on, left keys on the keyboard stopped working. A friend suggested I take the battery out for a bit and then plug it in without the battery. So I did and the keyboard worked for a couple of days like that. Then one day it stopped working again.

To be exact these are the keys that are not working:
Esc, F1, F2, F3,
~, 1, 2, 3,
Tab, Q, W, E,
Caps Lock, A, S, D,
Shift, Z, X, C,
Ctrl, Fn, windows, Alt

Acer Aspire 5517 :: Turns Itself Off When Left Idle

Sep 4, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 5517 Laptop.
Operating System is Window 7 X 64 Home Premium.
AMD Athlon TF-20 1.6 GHz Processor
2 GB RAM_ Physical Memory
220 GB Hard Drive
I leave my computer on during the day, and leave it occasionally  for short periods of time..Lately, when I come back to it, the screen will be black..It is black because the computer turns itself off, for no reason that I can find out. When I turn it back on I get a caption that says the "user (name)has been locked out." Below that is a caption that I can click on that reads "switch user." If I  click that caption, it says "user logged on." Which is the user that was just locked out! I click on that and my desktop comes up like nothing happened....
So far, to try and correct it, I have flashed the BIOS, because it needed updating. I thought this might work, but it  has not corrected the problem. I  have also done all of the standard things like defrag., cutting down on desktop icons, fewer starting programs, etc.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV9000 18.5V 3A Adapter Broke

Aug 26, 2009

My girlfriends HP dv9000 adapter broke at the cord where it plugs in the the laptop and she needs to buy a replacement. It is an 18.5V 3Amp adapter. She found one on ebay (claiming to be new) for like $0.99, but I'm extremely skeptical that it will work satisfactorily and may even damage the laptop.

Do you all have any suggestions for replacing it? Purchasing a new one from HP would work, but it is definitely the most expensive options. Has anybody had any luck with ones from other sellers, from ebay, amazon, etc.?

Dell :: Did I Just Broke My Laptop When Installing RAM Wrong

Oct 13, 2009

I have a dell inspiron 6000 computer and installed Ram into my laptop. The thing was i tried to push it in and it would not go in. I then later saw there was a spot where u can push the ram in and eventually got it in. I did use lot of force pushing it in.

When i open my laptop, it opens but the screen is black and then turns off in like 7 seconds. I then took out the new ram and installed the old ram. It still has the same problem. Does that mean my laptop does not work anymore? Does it also mean i cannot return my RAM to the online site where i purchased my ram since theres a 30 day policy?

Sony :: Broke My Keyboard On My Z Laptop 6 Key Is Only Working Key

Mar 21, 2009

I was taking my Z690 apart to put in a larger hard drive and I did something wrong because the keyboard no longer works even in the bios. The cable seems snug on both ends. I tried removing it from the motherboard and plugging it back in and it still doesn't respond. I've rebooted - pulled the battery booted again - the 6 key is the only key that works. I've tried caps lock - 6 is the only key that types. The touchpad doesn't work either.

HP/Compaq :: Keyboard Ribbon Snap-on Broke

Sep 18, 2009

My HP notebook's keyboard frequently stopped functioning. Each time required that I turn off the computer then turn it back on again. Recently the amount of time between each off/on was so short as to make the machine unusable, except when at home with an external keyboard. So I decided to venture into ensuring the keyboard was securely attached to the motherboard. I'm not expert and ended up breaking one leg of the plastic snap-on that holds the keyboard ribbon onto the motherboard. Oops.

So now I would like to know where I can obtain another one of these cute little snap-on thingies. I've looked into purchasing a new keyboard, which I'll probably do anyway, but I confirmed with a number of sellers that the plastic snap-on is included with the motherboard, not the keyboard. Bummer. So anyone have a suggestion on where I can get this snap-on thingy from?

Note that my notebook is an nx7000 and the keyboard has a model number 337016-001. Also, I've attached a photo of the snap-on thingy:

Apple :: Macbook - Graphics Card Just Broke

Jul 9, 2009

my roommate's macbook's graphics card just broke (according to apple store), so we're trying to get it replaced.

Before doing that, we want to back up her data.
Since upon bootup, the LCD does not display anything for her macbook, we're trying to run in target disk mode.

The apple store printed out instructions for us to do this via firewire cable, but we cannot locate he firewire cable at the moment.

Can this be done by means of ethernet cable?

Alternatively, we're thinking of using the video adapter to view her macbook's screen on an alternate monitor, not sure if this is possible or not due to the bad graphics card.
