Keyboard in Acer® Aspire
If you are using the Acer Aspire desktop computers, you may not be experiencing much the pain and difficulty of having a non-responsive keyboard. You can just replace the keyboard with a new one or use a different on while fixing the other. If you are using the laptop models then this could be a problem for you. If you are having problems on your keyboard, you can consider these aspects to fix or diagnose the situation of your keyboard:
- Driver issue with the Acer Aspire®
- Hardware failure
- Battery issue
Driver issue with the Acer Aspire®
The keyboard much like the mouse and the printer is a hardware device and it requires device drivers to work. Device drivers are software components that are essential for the proper functioning and response of the device with the system. If the keyboard is not responding, check the drivers for any errors. If it has outdated drivers, updating them will fix the issue. You can also try reinstalling the drivers. This can fix the problems of the keyboard drivers.
Physical trauma could affect the performance of the keyboard. If the keyboard is not handled with care the hardware components could get affected, destroying the system. If this happens, the device might need some repairs from the service centers or you might need to have the keyboard replaced. Do not spill liquids or put too much pressure on the keyboard as it could lead to damage to the system.
If you have a battery that is not functioning properly on your Acer Aspire®, the keyboard may not respond under such circumstances. The keyboard requires a good amount of power for it to function well. For the whole device to work, enough energy is essential as the energy will be distributed first to the main components and then to the peripherals. If there is no proper input of power then the keyboard will not function. Check the battery or disable the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Battery Method to address the issue. If you use the keyboard with care then you will not face any problem.
