When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators +, -, *, and /).

If the keyboard cable connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test.

If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU:

1.

Reconnect the keyboard cables.

2.

Replace the keyboard.

3.

Replace the main board.

The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this computer: q

Numeric keypad

98 Chapter 4

q

External keyboard

If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat the failing operation.

Memory Check

Memory errors might stop system operations, show error messages on the screen, or hang the system.

1.

Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostic program (please refer to main board.

2.

Go to the diagnostic memory in the test items.

3.

Press F2 in the test items.

4.

Follow the instructions in the message window.

NOTE: Make sure that the DIMM is fully installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an error.

Power System Check

To verify the symptom of the problem, power on the computer using each of the following power sources:

1.

Remove the battery pack.

2.

Connect the power adapter and check that power is supplied.

3.

Disconnect the power adapter and install the charged battery pack; then check that power is supplied by the battery pack.

If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply check in the following list: q

“Check the Power Adapter” on page 100

q

“Check the Battery Pack” on page 101

Chapter 4 99

Check the Power Adapter

Unplug the power adapter cable from the computer and measure the output voltage at the plug of the power adapter cable. See the following figure

Pin 1: +19 to +20.5V

Pin 2: 0V, Ground

1.

If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter.

2.

If the voltage is within the range, do the following: q q

Replace the System board.

If the problem is not corrected, see “Undetermined Problems” on page 116.

q

If the voltage is not correct, go to the next step.

NOTE: An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate a defect.

3.

If the power-on indicator does not light up, check the power cord of the power adapter for correct continuity and installation.

4.

If the operational charge does not work, see “Check the Battery Pack” on page 101.

100 Chapter 4

Check the Battery Pack

To check the battery pack, do the following:

From Software:

1.

Check out the Power Management in control Panel

2.

In Power Meter, confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total

Battery Power Remaining are correct.

3.

Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter.

4.

This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging.

From Hardware:

1.

Power off the computer.

2.

Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground).

3.

If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.

To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the computer.

If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature.

Re-install the battery pack.

If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.

Touchpad Check

If the touchpad doesn’t work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU:

1.

Reconnect the touchpad cables.

2.

Replace the touchpad.

3.

Replace the system board.

After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware problem. No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time.

Chapter 4 101

Power-On Self-Test (POST) Error Message

The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes. The most likely cause is listed first.

NOTE: Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in FRU/Action column, if the FRU replacement does not solve the problem, put the original part back in the computer. Do not replace a non-defective FRU.

This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when servicing a computer.

If the symptom is not listed, see “Undetermined Problems” on page 116.

The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and the error symptoms classified by function.

NOTE: Most of the error messages occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware device, e.g., the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the way it has been configured.

NOTE: If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus, reset the computer, enter

Setup and install Setup defaults or correct the error.

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 advanced diagnostic test for the system board in loop mode at least 10 times.

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.

Chapter 4 115

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 99.):

1.

Power-off the computer.

2.

Visually check them for damage. If any problems are found, replace the FRU.

Clearing Password Check and BIOS Recovery

This section provide you the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for

Aspire 5730Z/5330 Series. Aspire 5730Z/5330 Series provide one Hardware Open Gap on main board for clearing password check, and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS Recovery.

HW Gap position on M/B space:

Gap name in Aspire 5730Z/5330 Series is G10

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).

Chapter 5 119

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 system.

2.

Insert the Crisis Disk to a USB floppy drive which is attached to the BIOS flash failed machine.

3.

In the power-off state, press Fn+Esc and hold them and then press Power Button. The system should be powered on with Crisis BIOS Recovery process.

4.

BIOS Boot Block starts to restore the BIOS code from the Crisis floppy disk to BIOS ROM on the failed machine.

5.

If the Crisis flashing process is finished, the system will restart.

If the Crisis Recovery process is finished, the system should be powered on with successful and workable

BIOS. Then a person can update the latest version BIOS for this machine by regular BIOS flashing process.
