Acer :: TravelMate 6293 Keyboard Problem - Resolved With BIOS Update

Jan 23, 2009

I have a brand new 12" Acer TravelMate 6293. I've instaled XP, Vista, Win7 and Ubuntu.

HP Omen 15 :: Backlit Keyboard Not Working After BIOS Update

Jan 23, 2015

This morning my HP Omen arrived in the mail, fully functional with everything in tact. After I left my laptop to install the updates from the HP Support Assistant (One of those updates being a BIOS update), I came back to find my computer restarted and my backlit keyboard not working. After trying to use the HP OMEN Control to fix the keyboard, I found that the keyboard will flash briefly when I click "Apply To All Zones", but then immediately turns off again. Is there any way to fix this Backlit Keyboard issue ir can we see an update in the near future that fixes this issue?

Looking at fitting an SSD which needs AHCI.  So I looked on microsoft and saw registry edit which I've done. Then I  changed to AHCI in BIOS and get BSOD so set it back. Also I see that there are problems with Smsung Pro, does any problems with Samsung evo ? Why mSATA is not recommended for boot disk and only for cache ?

Dell Latitude E6540 :: BIOS Update A10 Breaks Keyboard Input

Jul 28, 2014

The A10 BIOS update for the E6540, released on the 4th of July, causes severe keyboard issues on Linux. During routine typing, keys will 'stick' until any other key is pressed. The keys that stick vary and seem random: sometimes it's the space bar, sometimes alphanumerics and sometimes, worst of all, the backspace key.

This went on for a couple of weeks, I then noted that the BIOS update changelog included "Keyboard input improvement." and so rebooted back in to Windows 7 and downgraded to A08. I have had no problems since.

OS: Arch Linux, kernel 3.15.x, KDE 4.13.x

I've also had problems with the backlight coming on on its own, after the lid has been shut, but I have not been able to determine if this is a firmware issue. I do note however, that LCD backlight issues have been addressed in this BIOS update as well. My current workaround is to use the possum mode thingy (Fn + B), which turns off all sound and vision.

Acer :: Travelmate 2310 Keyboard + Mouse

Oct 24, 2007

THe Keybaord and touch pad stopped responding, put in a USB mouse, and that works. It crashes when you try to shut down, and holding down the on/off switch does nothing (the whole keypad has died, but lights still work).

Remove battery, and reboot, F2 works to get into BIOS. Alt F10 does nothing on bootup so i can return to factory defaults.

Press F8 and boots into safe mode, keyboard and mouse work fine. Reboot into normal mode, keyboard and mouse no longer work (mouse works if you moce it as windows starts to load, then it just stops). Have to remove battery to reboot.

Complety removed all partitions and formatted, then tried to restore with my backup disks made long ago, but as soon as windows boots, same problem.

Alt F10 still no longer works on bootup, although it is enabled in the BIOS.

It is an Acer Travelmate 2310,

I have even tried to install a new version of XP, from a standard disk, but half way through install, keyboard stops working.

The fact it works in safe mode tells me it's cant be dodgy wiring, whcich usually means driver problems, but the fact ti does it with restore or new install is very confusing.

Acer :: Travelmate 2356XM Keyboard Not Working

Oct 22, 2009

manual for a 2356 Travelmate or how to remove the case to check if the keyboard connection has come loose? I have performed a factory type reset using the setup and recovery disks but the keyboard still does not work. I have plugged in a usb keyboard which works fine but using it defeats the purpose of having a laptop. The reset was needed as i believe something nasty had got on board. The reset has cleared this all up but the keyboard still does not work.

Mar 6, 2015

I have an acer TravelMate P255-MG with Intel core i5 and AMD Radeon graphics HD 8750M. I recently updated my laptop os from windows 8 to 8.1.

Sometimes I shut it down and the next day i turn it on and it gives a "Video FATAL error". I'm downloading the drivers needed from the website( VGA Intel and VGA AMD). Will these drivers solve the problem?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410 - CTRL Key Does Not Work After BIOS Update To 1.45 (German Keyboard)

Aug 4, 2014

I updated the BIOS of my TP T410 (2522), German keyboard, to 1.45. After the update both CTRL keys do not work any more. The same for AltGr. When I activate the FN CTRL switch in BIOS the FN key - as supposed - works like the CTRL key. But when I deactivate it again the FN gets back to its proper function and CTRL does not work.
 
When I connect an external keyboard via USB it works perfectly. How to get the CRTL key working again?

Acer :: Travelmate 2450, Reset The Bios?

Oct 10, 2009

I bought a 2450 and the keyboard, touchpad and usb ports are all not working. I did some reading and someone had said that a reset could fix this problem, he said it was a problem with Acers bios. I'm trying to find where to jumper it, i read that you jumper J3 that is around the memory. I did that and don't think it reset, i figured the bios would give me a time warning or some sort of setting's warning. I thought i should see if anyone knows the procedure. Otherwise im thinking about cutting the lead to the top terminal and soldering in a jumper (which i don't want to do).

Acer :: BIOS Replacement Or Reset For Travelmate 2300

Jun 16, 2008

if it's possible to buy and install a replacement BIOS for an Acer Travelmate 2300 (as my 2300 died half-way through a flashing process-it will power on but there is nothing on the screen) or is the BIOS chip soldered to the motherboard and not possible (I've no technical skill at soldering).

Or is there a way to reset the BIOS? I could find nothing on the Acer website specific for this model.

Jan 23, 2009

1. Is their any unofficial, modded, or good BIOS for this laptop? I currently have 3508

2. Is their anyway to update the graphics card bios for this laptop?

Acer TravelMate P453-M :: Changed BIOS Boot Settings - Black Screen

Jan 19, 2015

Laptop still under warranty. I recently had a motherboard and HDD replacement. I wanted to install Windows myself, but the BIOS was set to UEFI, and I couldn't seem to boot off of a USB drive. So I switched it to Legacy, booted from the pendrive, and installed Windows just fine.
 
For whatever reason, I went back to try and change the setting to UEFI. Now the laptop switches on, but refuses to boot. I get a black screen, with no logo or any prompt whatsoever to access the BIOS. 

I read a bit and seems I need to remove the BIOS battery, let the memory clear itself to reset BIOS settings to default, and try again? If it matters, I re-installed Windows 7 64-bit.

Acer :: Touchpad/Keyboard Dead After SP1 Update On Vista Business

Nov 19, 2008

I have an ACER Aspire 5670. Recently i installed windows vista business.

From the day i installed vista my battery appears to be broken.

Ok let's say battery cells were destroyed (Fedora installed on the same system report that battery may be dammaged)-So it may be destroyed in a couple of hours.

The second weird thing is that it persists not to recognize one device. In the device manager it has a hardware ID: ACPISMCB000

Third weird story. Today my notebook prompted that there was SP1 update available. I installed it (in 3 phases - 2together at shutdown and 1 after restart)

After SP update my keyboard stopped working - same thing with touchpad. I uninstalled SP1, uninstalled synaptics driver and re-installed it - same thing.

In a forum somewhere i read that battery causes these problems. I took battery off and now i am writing this message from my notebook's keybord ... touchpad still dead...

both keyboard and touchpad work perfectly in Fedora 9 and that usb mouse/keyboard work perfect too in Vista.

Acer :: Update BIOS And Got BSOD

Sep 6, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 5315 and was running Bios v1.33. It has been running warm for sometime and thought an updated BIOS would help.

I tried the ACER site but didn't see any BIOS updates listed for XP. I have XP Pro on it now.

I followed a different link and found BIOS 1.45 so i Flashed it using WinFlash.

After it completed it shut down, i waited a couple of min. and powered back up, when i did i saw the BSOD for about 2 seconds and then goes to selective startup (Normal, Safe, Safe w/networking etc...)

I have not tried safe mode yet but in normal it just goes back to that screen again.

I saw the thread on using the FN+ESC mode but not sure if i really need to do that.

what I should do to restore it back to 1.33? I have to check my external HD but i think i still have that 1.33 version saved that i used when i did it the first time.

Acer :: Bios Update Failure 5633Wlmi

Nov 17, 2008

I upgraded to 4 gb and the Bios was only showing 3gb/Vista 4gb.

I updated the BIOS via bootable DOS Fdd after reading things here and knowning that it was not possible via x64 Vista.

Update finished and notebook shutdown, not restart.

Now it will not turn on.

No lights with power adapter or battery.

I have tried the "crisis" disk method. holding fn+esc.

Tried power in and holding Insert.

I've tried with and with out battery/power adapter.

Opened and bridged the clear-cmos for 30 seconds.

Reseated RAM and CPU.

Tried all of this with 1gb, 2gb 3gb and 4gb.

but alas she is still in a coma.......

I have tried Acer support for help but they want it sent to them, I want to avoid this if I can.

Can a failed BIOS really kill a notebook?

May 20, 2010

I have been having some performance issues with some of my games. I tried to fix it with no success. I figured I should update my BIOS, which I haven`t since I bought my laptop.

I downloaded the BIOS update (3238) from the Acer website. I clicked on the application and it brought me to WinPlash64. It automatically started the bios update, but it got stuck on Flash New BIOS. I had to shutdown my laptop since the BIOS did not update.

how to flash my BIOS properly or tell me what I`m doing wrong?
