Q: Acer Keyboard Case (included with Acer Aspire P3) ...

So at first i thought it my keyboard wasn't being seen by windows 10. but sometimes after holding the bluetooth button an unknown device appears that appears to be my keyboard. yet when i type in the connection code it doesn't respond and then the device no longer is showing. It could just be another bluetooth device though; i live in a dorm so there's many other people with bluetooth devices in the area. I checked out this: https://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/30072/~/how-to-pair-the-acer-bluetooth-keyboar... but it only applies to 8 and 8.1, not 10. Perhaps acer should release a driver update for windows 10 early adopters that fixes their keyboard to work with windows 10, unless there is a simple bug fix? I looked online but i seem to be the only one with this issue so far, possibly due to the newness of 10. Edit: found this post, which weirdly didn't show up previously: http://community.acer.com/t5/Windows-10/Bluetooth-not-working-after-installing-Windows-10-on-Aspire-... trying to update my drivers again to confirm this isn't an issue. edit 2: nope it added a connected devices section to replace the bluetooth section, but otherwise didn't solve the problem yet. edit 3: so after like 2 hours i finally realized what was the issue.In order for it to be discoverable you need to make sure to first install the new windows 10 specific bluetooth driver mentioned in the above post , then use the REPAIR option in the bluetooth drivers, THEN make sure the keyboard starts having both its blue and orange light flashing, reseting the connection. After doing these three things, the keyboard should be discoverable in the bluetooth connection menu of windows 10, listed specially as a keyboard. Then just type in the code and you should be good to go!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

OK, I know I didn't buy the biggest, baddest box on the block, but, as a side note, it seems to pretty well fill the gap between my smartphone and monster desktop.

All right, down to business. The ES1 come with 4 Gb of memory and can handle up to 8 Gb. While waiting for the laptop to be delivered, I went ahead and order the 8 Gb upgrade from Crucial. Confirmed with them that it would work. Would just be a simple replacement. But unlike other laptops that I've owned in the past, those with a separate covers for battery, memory, and HD (yeh, those), the ES1 has everything inside the case. Nothing is accessible. So before I got my hammer and chisel out, I wanted to know what to expect.

I contacted ACER support and was told that the MB has to be removed to replace the memory chip. Where did these design engineers get their training, from label of a Cracker Jacks box? Like a little extra plastic and a couple of screws would not have sent the price into the stratosphere. Support couldn't give me any information as to what it would take to do the upgrade, i.e., opening the case and removing the board. I even asked it there was a tech manual that I could refer to and was told one didn't exist. I find this hard to believe. Next I went to the ACER support forums and got the same runaround. On the web there not much more than a bunch (100s if not 1000s) of copycats doing the same datasheet reviews. The problem is that nobody's addressing the upgrading issues, ... Read more

As you can see it has a low profile case.
At the moment I can only fit small graphics cards into it, so basically how "tall" the gpu can be is cut in half since the wideness of the case is so small, as you can see just looking at the front. I deduced this by trying to fit my geforce 6200 into it, didn't fit because its too tall.

I was wondering if you guys could give me some links of some relatively powerful GPU's that would fit into my case, if you can't find anything higher than a 9800 then don't bother, I want to be able to play Mass Effect 2 and Battlefield 3 on all high.

So if thats the case, then I'm wondering if anybody here could help me find out my motherboard size? Because I don't want to buy a new case and than find out my MB wont even fit in there. I don't know much about compatibility between MB's and Cases, does it even matter? Should I just buy any bigger case and it should fit? Or am I in big trouble because its an ACER computer and the MB might not be a "common" form factor?

And on top of that I have another problem, I have a "wireless network" card in there, I think thats what you call it. And its a small size, so if I get a bigger case then it wont fit because of the..... thingy (The silver platting on the card that you screw onto the case) that connects to the back of the case.

There is, however, I highly doubt a standard user would ever want to do this. And you will 100% break your warranty, and quite possibly break your computer trying to replace it. It is your own responcibility if you do it. It is not user friendly to implement. But if you really want to risk everything, you can find the part online, but your risk. If you want, you can wait for a ACE member to answer your question.

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted anything.



I have a friends laptop I offered to help fix.
I don't remember the exact model, but it's an Acer Aspire One. Small older computer.

For whatever reason the keyboard stopped working properly. I disabled the keyboard drivers and they updated when the computer restarted. that didn't help. I also tried a side keyboard, that doesn't work well either. i did the number lock function fn+11, that doesn't work. The keyboard works some times and most the time it doesn't.

I went into the keyboard setting and tried resting it there and I went into the bios to see if anything was disabled, but everything was okay. i went even further, I unhook the keyboard from the laptop and tried using the side keyboard again and same problem. some times the computer starts acting weird. I go into the Internet(pretty much anything that has to do with typing) random numbers and letters start typing with the laptop keyboard and my side keyboard.

What can I do to fix it? I tried everything, I'm not sure if it's fixable. if i missed something ill reply as soon as i can.

Those can be really hard to fix. Youtube might have tear apart guides. But its better to just hook up a bluetooth or usb keyboard to it.

Try using the keyboard on another computer and see if it works. If it's a USB keyboard, you should be able to use it on your father's laptop. If NO keys work on EITHER computer, the laptop is most likely ready for the garbage dump. I suppose you could try opening it up and cleaning it, but if it's not a very expensive keyboard I wouldn't even bother. Just replace it.

Ok so I regularly play video games and work on this laptop but for a while when ever I hold the w key and release it the key would still act as if it is being pushed down and would not stop holding itself down. This also happens when I switch tabs and when that happens the w key becomes unresponsive for a while then it is able to be used a couple seconds/minute later. I am not having luck with cleaning the keyboard since there is no space at all to stick a spray in to remove dust or a way I know of to remove the covers of the keyboard but all my other keys are good.

Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.

My system is roughly 5 months old. I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to 7 home premium. There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to deep hibernation. The only way to wake it was to unplug the power from the tower. I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers, to finally reinstalling everything. No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer. I just got it back from Acer's repair depot. They had to replace the motherboard, hard drive, and fans on the system. They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue. I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold, the hibernation thing started again! It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory. Now it seems stable running Vista. I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell. Is it me or is Acer systems flakey?

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows 7 without having to format every week? I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly. Sometimes it won't even turn on. Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows 7?

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

Hey There

First of all: I'm a studend, so I can't speek good english, cause I live in Switzerland (plz write in German if you can )

So my Problem:

I've found a Acer Aspire 5920G with Windows Vista. This was so slow and annoying . So I deleded the whole OS and installed Win 7 Home Premium x64. Now I'm searching some drivers for my Notebook. My biggest Problem is the sound driver.
In Vista, there was a tool called "Acer eAudio Manager". I want to install it, because you can switch the equalizer to movie, music and game (and it sounds awesome with the bassbooster=D). I've downloaded the driver from the website and there was a error:

"This software can only be installed in authorized machine"

what can I do to install this tool? Some other tools, like acer power management or acer enet management, works great.

I thought I ask in this forum, because there were some good topics about the mouspad and synaptic of the 5920G (wich helped me=D)

I hope you understand my question and can help me

Hi there, Several keys have died on my daughter's V5-473P keyboard.  I searched here and all I found were lots of customers complaining about failed keyboards with no answers, so I ordered a $20 replacement keyboard on ebay. My question is about how to remove the top panel/bezel that surrounds the entire keyboard and touchpad?  It seems like any effort to use a thin lever to pry it up would damage it...  Do I need to come at it from the bottom by removing the motherboard, etc?  I'm trying to repair this on the cheap, since it's barely out of warranty and after removing the bottom case, I find it's falling apart around many of the screw holes (the bottom case appears more pricey than the keyboard). Thanks.

Not sure if it's software or hardware, but she's having an issue with aforementioned notebook keyboard - basically when she's typing in Word and gets up to a reasonable speed, the cursor will jump to an earlier part of the document and words will start to highlight.

Any ideas?
 

A:Problem with Acer aspire 5720 keyboard

Usually the best fix is to replace the keyboard... about $30 to $50.
Try cleaning it thorougly with a can of difluoroethane gas such as dust off, as sometimes they are just dirty.
You might also attempt disconnecting and reseating all relevant cables.

I am helping a friend with an Acer Aspire 4330. The problem is some of the keyboard keys produce multiple entries(of varying letter) when pressed. All hardware drivers are updated, however acer shows no keyboard drivers to update. A USB keyboard works fine when plugged in. My question is this: could this be a spyware related issue? I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.

No, it's not malware if an external keyboard works fine. The problem is with the physical keyboard. Before you start replacing parts, find out what happened to it. If someone spilled something on it, the keyboard might not be the only thing damaged. It looks like an old laptop. Not worth sticking much money into.

Not Sure if this post belongs here but here goes nothing. A few of the buttons on my top keyboard are locked and refuse to workEsc, F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F8 F9 F10 F11 Are not working. I press them and nothing happens.I'm fearful I may have hit some function locked key on my keyboard and is preventing me from using these keys. Is here anyway I can click on a button my keyboard and reset everything. Or go to control panel and enable my top keys to work again. How can I stop this from happening? Any help is appreciated.I attached a picture of what my keyboard looks like.My computer is an Acer Aspire 7745G - Windows 10 http://s58.photobucket.com/user/Mikevarga/media/20160814_132325_zpsjvtsjwnb.jpg.html

Hi guys,

I am facing a problem with my less-than-a-year-old Acer Aspire 5943g laptop. Certain keys on the keyboard wont work for some time when I switch on the laptop or when I get it off the sleep mode. These keys are Caps Lock, d, s, h, m, and some more. After 5-10 minutes of frustrating around, pressing random keys, these keys activate and start functioning. However, the cycle repeats itself the next time I switch on my computer.

I googled and found that there are many users out there with similar issues but none have managed to get their issues resolved or at least no one has provided a satisfactory answer so far. In this forum there is a exact same topic but that thread is closed. I would be grateful if those users can suggest me what they ended up doing to cope with this issue.

I checked with the Acer people in Indonesia and they say that I will have to give my laptop and it can take up to 14 working days. I might do that but looking for the last ray of hope through this forum.

Many Thanks for your help in advance.
