Touchpad
The built-in touchpad is a pointing device that senses movement on its surface. This means the cursor
responds as you move your finger on the surface of the touchpad. The central location on the palmrest
provides optimal comfort and support.
NOTE: If you are using an external USB mouse, you can press Fn-F7 to disable the touchpad.
Touchpad Basics
The following teaches you how to use the touchpad:
T
Move your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.
T
Press the left (1) and right (3) buttons located on the edge of the touchpad to do selection and
execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse.
Tapping on the touchpad produces similar results.
T
Use the 4-way scroll (2) button (top/bottom/left/and right) to scroll a page up, down, left or right.
This button mimics your cursor pressing on the vertical and horizontal scroll bars of Windows
applications.

There are two control signals that come form system to control lamp brightness. One signal is
named DAC_BRIG, which limits current to meet LCD lamp current specification. Another one is
named PWM, which adjusts lamp brightness. This inverter brightness is adjusted by PWM burst

mode. The PWM burst mode is that turning on and off the lamp at rate of 150Hz. The effective
brightness is a function of the duty cycle.
Features
1. Wide range 9V to 21V input voltage.
2. Birghtness adjustment by PWM duty mode.
3. Close loop controls lamp current.

NOTE:
*1. The inverter can work in 7.5V input voltage (continuous), but 7.5V electronic characteristic will
not be care.
*2. Limited lamp maximum current by DAC_BRIC signal:
When DAC_BRIG voltage is 0V and INV_PWM enables (100%), lamp has max. current.
When DAC_BRIG voltage is 3.3V and INV_PWM enables (100%), lamp has min. current.
When add 1V DAC, the 100% Lamp current will decrease 0.5mA.
DAC_BRIG signal comes from system chipset with internal resistance of 3K Ω
*3. Inverter operating frequency should be within specification (45~65kHz) at max. and min.
brightness load.
*4. INV_PWM enable implies INV_PWM signal is High level (On duty cycle is 100%). It is a square
wave of 150Hz to adjust backlight brightness that is a function of PWM duty cycle. Backlight
brightness is maximum value under INV_PWM at 100% and brightness is minimum under
INV_PWM at 30%.
*5.The system interface signals belong to 3.3V.
*6. Please make sure open lamp output voltage should be within starting voltage specification.
*7. Inverter should pass human body safety test.
*8. Inverter should be no smoking by any component open/short test.
*9. Transformer voltage stress should not be over 85% under any condition.
(turn on overshoot transient and line transient.)
*10. Audio noise should be less than 36dB at 10cm distance.

Chapter 4
Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a
hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement
should be considered only when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing an intermittent problem, do the following:
1.
Run the diagnostic test for several times to isolate the problem.
2.
If no error is detected, do not replace any FRU.
3.
If any error is detected, replace the FRU. Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.
If an error is detected by the main battery test, see “Check the Power Adapter” on page 78
If an error is detected by the display test, see “Index of Symptom-to-FRU Error Message” on page
84 .
If an error is detected by the floppy disk drive test, see “External Diskette Drive Check” on page 76.
If an error is detected by the keyboard test, see “Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check” on
page 77.
Chapter 4
87
Undetermined Problems
The diagnostic problems does not identify which adapter or device failed, which installed devices are incorrect,
whether a short circuit is suspected, or whether the system is inoperative.
Follow these procedures to isolate the failing FRU (do not isolate non-defective FRU).
NOTE: Verify that all attached devices are supported by the computer.
NOTE: Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the failure is operating correctly. (See “Power
System Check” on page 77):

1.
Power-off the computer.
2.
Visually check them for damage. If any problems are found, replace the FRU.
3.
Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:
T
Non-Acer devices
T
Printer, mouse, and other external devices
T
Battery pack
T
Hard disk drive
T
DIMM
T
CD-ROM/Diskette drive Module
T
PC Cards
4.
Power-on the computer.
5.
Determine if the problem has changed.
6.
If the problem does not recur, reconnect the removed devices one at a time until you find the failing FRU.
7.
If the problem remains, replace the following FRU one at a time. Do not replace a non-defective FRU:
