Touchpad Basics (with fingerprint reader)
The following items show you how to use the touchpad with Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader:
•
Move your finger across the touchpad (2) to move the cursor.
•
Press the left (1) and right (4) buttons located beneath the touchpad to perform selection and
execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse.
Tapping on the touchpad is the same as clicking the left button.
•
Use Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader (3) supporting Acer FingerNav 4-way control function
(only for certain models) or the 4-way scroll (3) button (only for certain models) to scroll up or down
and move left or right a page. This fingerprint reader or button mimics your cursor pressing on the
right scroll bar of Windows applications.

Using the Keyboard
The keyboard has full-sized keys and an embedded numeric keypad, separate cursor, lock, Windows, function
and special keys.

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys
function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators +, -, *, and /). Use
this mode when you need to do a lot of numeric data entry. A better solution
would be to connect an external keypad.
Scroll Lock <Fn> +
<F12>
When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press
the up or down arrow keys respectively. Scroll Lock does not work with some
applications.
The embedded numeric keypad functions like a desktop numeric keypad. It is indicated by small characters
located on the upper right corner of the keycaps. To simplify the keyboard legend, cursor-control key symbols
are not printed on the keys.

Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility. However, if
you encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup. Please also refer to Chapter 4
Troubleshooting when problem arises.
To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when “Press <F2> to enter Setup” message is prompted
on the bottom of screen).
Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change
boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.
Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu. In this menu, user can change boot device without
entering BIOS SETUP Utility.
Navigating the BIOS Utility
There are six menu options: Information, Main, Advanced, Security, Boot, and Exit.
Follow these instructions:
•

Machine Disassembly and Replacement
This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for
maintenance and troubleshooting.
Disassembly Requirements
To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:
•
Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
•
Flat screwdriver
•
Philips screwdriver
•
Plastic flat screwdriver
•
Plastic tweezers
NOTE: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the
screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.
Chapter 3

General Information
Pre-disassembly Instructions
Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, make sure that you do the following:
1. Turn off the power to the system and all peripherals.
2. Unplug the AC adapter and all power and signal cables from the system.
3. Place the system on a flat, stable surface.
4. Remove the battery pack.
Disassembly Process
The disassembly process is divided into the following stages:
•
•
•
External module disassembly
Main unit disassembly
LCD module disassembly
The flowcharts provided in the succeeding disassembly sections illustrate the entire disassembly sequence.
Observe the order of the sequence to avoid damage to any of the hardware components. For example, if you
want to remove the main board, you must first remove the keyboard, then disassemble the inside assembly
frame in that order.

If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:
•
Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.
•
Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.
•
Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
•
Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
•
Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.
NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk
BIOS Recovery Boot Block:
BIOS Recovery Boot Block is a special block of BIOS. It is used to boot up the system with minimum BIOS
initialization. Users can enable this feature to restore the BIOS firmware to a successful one once the previous
BIOS flashing process failed.
BIOS Recovery Hotkey:
The system provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, for enable BIOS Recovery process when system is powered
on during BIOS POST. To use this function, it is strongly recommended to have the AC adapter and Battery
present. If this function is enabled, the system will force the BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called Boot
Block.
Steps for BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk:
Before doing this, one Crisis Disk should be prepared ready in hand. The Crisis Disk could be made by
executing the Crisis Disk program in another system with Windows XP OS.
Follow the steps below:
1. Power Off failed system.
2. Attach a USB floppy drive to the failed system.
3. Insert the Crisis Disk in to the USB floppy drive attached to the BIOS flash failed system.
4. In the power-off state, press and hold Fn+Esc then press the Power button.
The system powers on and the Crisis BIOS Recovery process begins.
BIOS Boot Block begins restoring the BIOS code from the Crisis floppy disk to BIOS ROM on the failed
systems.
When the Crisis flash process is finished, the system restarts with a workable BIOS.
5. Update to the latest version BIOS for the system using the regular BIOS flashing process.
