  • Hello,

     

    1. What model do you own exactly?
    2. Could you give me the first ten characters of the computer serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.

    Didn't solved the problem (the PC started without password, that was something interesting to learn about).

     

    Thank you for trying to help, this forum's are awsome for that, the "community spirit".

     

    Thanks you again,

    Go to Device manager, right click the Keyboard and uninstall the driver, reboot and see whether it fixes the problem, it's just a shot in the dark so don't blame me if it doesn't work Smiley Very Happy

     

    EDIT: You could also try switching to different keyboard language(Eng US/UK) and switch back to your default language.

    didnt work but thank you for trying

  • Hi vbispo,

     

    Have you loaded the default settings in the bios setup utility?

    Sorry but I don't understand that, my IT knowledge it's very limited...

  • Hi vbispo,

     

    The first way:

    1. Restart your laptop
    2. When you'll see the Acer logo , press [F2] to access to the bios setup utility
    3. Press [F9] to load the default settings
    4. Press [F10] to save and exit
    5. The laptop will reboot automatically

    Hi,

     

    sorry for the late reply, away from the damaged computer until today. Well, one of the keys that is not working is the f2 (like the i, or the back space...totally apart keys).

     

    Thanks

  • Hi vbispo,

     

    Second way, watch these videos:

     

    Windows 8: https://youtu.be/QGiG1oljjZI?list=PLLsoMz8c0i1taZstgF35c4VOWyEAAx564

    Windows 10: https://youtu.be/UPIUkPGaGys

     

    Reminder:

    [F9] to load default settings

    [F10] to save and exit

    Hoping [F9] and [F10] keys work.
