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 (1) to move the cursor.
•
Press the left (2) 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.
Lock Keys and embedded numeric keypad
The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.
Lock key
Description
Caps Lock
When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase.
Num Lock
<Fn> + <F11>
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.

* If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an additional word-bitmap (xxxx)
indicating the address line or bits that failed. For example, 2C 0002 means address line 1 (bit one set) has
failed. 2E 1020 means data bits 12 and 5 (bits 12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. Note that error 30
cannot occur on 386SX systems because they have a 16 rather than 32-bit bus. The BIOS also sends the
bitmap to the port-80 LED display. It first displays the check point code, followed by a delay, the high-order
byte, another delay, and then the low-order byte of the error. It repeats this sequence continuously.

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
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).

5.
142
Update the latest version BIOS for this machine by regular BIOS flashing process.
Chapter 5
Steps for BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk:
Before doing this, a Crisis Diskette should be prepared ready in hand. The Crisis Diskette 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. Copy xxxxx.wph to tool's folder and rename it as BIOS.wph.
4. Execute wincris.exe to start the Crisis Disk Build.
