Touchpad
The build-in touchpad is a PS/2 compatible pointing device that senses movement on its surface.
The cursor responds to your finger movements on the touchpad. In addition, the two click buttons provide
the same functionality as a computer mouse, while the scroll key enables easy up and down scrolling in
documents and web pages.
The touchpad is located in the middle of the palm rest area, providing maximum comfort and efficiency.
Touchpad Basics
Use the touchpad as follows:
!
Slide your finger over the surface of the touchpad to control the movement of the cursor. Tap the
touchpad to perform selection and execution functions.
!
Press the left (1) and right (3) buttons to perform selection and execution functions, just as you
would use the buttons on a computer mouse.
!
Use the scroll key (2) to scroll through long documents and web pages. Press the top of the key to
scroll up, and the bottom to scroll down; left to scroll left, and right to scroll right.

Launch Keys
Located at the top of the keyboard are four buttons, in addition to the power button. These buttons are
called launch keys. They are designed as key 1, key 2, key 3 and key 4, from right to left. By default,
key 1 is used to launch the email application and key 2 is used to launch the Internet browser. Key 3
and key 4 start the Launch Manager application. The first four launch keys can be set by the user. To set
the launch keys, run the Acer Launch Manager.

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.

step 2.
Sound Check
To determine if the computer’s built-in speakers are functioning properly, perform the following steps. Before
you start the steps below, adjust the speaker volume to an appropriate level.
66
1.
Try different audio sources. For example, employ audio CD and ditital music file to determine whether the
fault is in the speaker system or not. If not all sources have sound problem, the problem is in the source
devices. If all have the same problem, continue next step.
2.
Connect a set of earphone or external speakers. If these devices work fine, go to next step. If not, then the
main board may be defective or damaged. Replace the main board.
3.
Follow the disassembling steps in Chapter 3. Esure the speaker cable is firmly connected to the main
board. If the speaker is still a malfunction, go on next step.
