Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Keyboard won't stop repeating the hyphen/underscore key.

\015 About two months ago I accidently spilled rootbeer on my keyboard. Barely any of the keys work now, so I have to use a USB keyboard & mouse. They're working out great, but on my laptop keyboard, it keeps randomly repeating the hyphen button, like this ----------------------------. It is VERY frustrating. I've tried uninstalling the drivers for the keyboard and switching to onscreen keyboard, but neither of these things has worked. Is there anything else I can try to do?\015

Answers :

\015\012You have few solutions to this
  1. disconnect the keyboard flex cable from the motherboard so the keyboard is not connected at all.
  2. \015\012
  3. replace the keyboard
\015\012On option 1 you would need to take the laptop apart from the top so that you can take the keyboard out so that you can disconnect the cable, then place it back in.
\015\012On option 2 you would also need to take the laptop apart / open it from the top to get the keyboard out and disconnect the cable. and replace it with a new keyboard.

Monitor spaz-mcgee ok this problem occurred once before a couple days ago but not to this extreme. it started out with the "." key on the keyboard. for some reason any text input area on the computer started to be filled in by the "." key. it would just repeat itself without stopping. if i hit the "backspace" key it would stop but if i let go, it would continue on its merry way again. it suddenly stopped and now today it happened again. only this time the monitor has gone negative. and by negati
