Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook ?

Keyboard problem I have an Acer aspire 3690 and my keyboard and the mouse stoped working at the same time. When I use a USB Mouse and Keyboard they work. I dont have a warranty anymore!! Should I just order the parts and repace them or is it some other problem ? I bought it November 2007 what should I do please help


Answers :

If they both stopped working at the same then it's probably a problem with the motherboard and not the keyboard or mouse per say.

Regardless we've got to try something, right?

I'd start with removing the keyboard and mouse from the device manager, then restart the computer (without the external mouse and keyboard)

If that doesn't work try updating the bios.

If the model you listed above is correct then the latest version for your laptop is located here:

I purchased recently a new (never-used) M5-1 (1370478) classic M-type keyboard, from clickykeyboards.com with a tiny trackball just above the cursor keys. It's great ! but with a string attached... The problem: the trackball moves the cursor on the screen only left-right, and barely, but not altogether zero, up-down. The mechanical parts seem tot function perfectly: good contact between the rubber ball and the ball-bearings and excellent and intricate movements. There's obviously something wrong


Based on my experience with this type of keyboard, most likely, there's a problem with the track ball itself. To isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:1. Try connecting your keyboard into different USB ports of your computer. ... PC Desktops
