Touchpad
The built-in seamless touchpad is a pointing device that senses movement on its surface. This means the
cursor responds as you move your finger across the surface of the touchpad. The central location on the
palmrest provides optimum comfort and support.
Touchpad Basics
The following teaches you how to use the touchpad:
T
Move your finger across the touchpad (2) to move the cursor.
T
Press the left (1) and right (3) 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.

NOTE: When using the touchpad, keep it - and your fingers - dry and clean. The touchpad is sensitive to finger
movement; hence, the lighter the touch, the better the response. Tapping too hard will not increase the
touchpad’s responsiveness.
NOTE: By default, vertical and horizontal scrolling is enabled on your touchpad. It can be disabled under
Mouse settings in Windows Control Panel.

Using the Keyboard
The keyboard has full-sized keys and an embedded keypad, separate cursor keys, two Windows keys and
twelve function keys, and two 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

(for selected models)
Acer eDataSecurity Management is an encryption utility that protects your files from being accessed by
unauthorized persons. It is conveniently integrated with Windows Explorer as a shell extension for quick data
encryption/decryption and also supports on-the-fly file encryption for Lotus Notes and Microsoft Outlook.
The Acer eDataSecurity Management setup wizard will prompt you for a supervisor password and default
encryption password. This password will be used to encrypt files by default, or you can choose to enter your
own password when encrypting a file.
NOTE: The password used to encrypt a file is the unique key that the system needs to decrypt it. If you lose
the password, the supervisor password is the only other key capable of decrypting the file. If you lose
both passwords, there will be no way to decrypt your encrypted file! Be sure to safeguard all related
passwords!

If BIOS flash procedure fails in your system, perform a BIOS recovery procedure by using the crisis recovery
diskette. During this procedure, the system will force BIOS to load and execute a special BIOS block (also
called boot block) to restore the BIOS code from the crisis recovery diskette.
Note the following when restoring the BIOS settings:
T
T
Use the <Fn> + <Esc> hotkey to enable BIOS recovery during BIOS POST.
Important: When using the <Fn> + <Esc> hotkey to enable BIOS recovery, we strongly recommend the
following:
t
Make sure the battery pack is installed to the system.
t
Make sure the adapter is connected to the system and plugged into a wall outlet.
A crisis recovery diskette should be prepared in Windows XP/Vista.
Perform the following procedure to restore BIOS:
1.
Power off the system.
2.
Connect a USB floppy drive to the system.
3.
Insert the Crisis Disk to the floppy drive.
4.
Press and hold <Fn> + <Esc> keys, then press the power button.
The system initializes the BIOS recovery process. The boot block BIOS starts to restore the failed BIOS
code from the crisis recovery diskette. Once the process is completed, the system will restart.
After a successful BIOS recovery procedure. RD/CSD can update the BIOS by regular BIOS flashing
procedure.

System Check Procedures
External CD/DVD-ROM Drive Check
Perform the following procedures to isolate the possible problem a controller, drive, or CD-ROM.
NOTE: Make sure that the CD-ROM does not have any label attached to it. The label may damage the drive or
cause drive failure.
1.
Boot from the diagnostic disc and start the diagnostic programs.
2.
See if CD-ROM Test is passed when the program runs the CD-ROM Test.
3.
Follow onscreen instructions.
If an error occurs, reconnect the drive to the connector on the mainboard. If the error persists, do the following:
1.
Reconnect the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
2.
Replace the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3.
Replace the mainboard.
Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check
Remove the external keyboard if the internal keyboard is to be tested.
If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected error occurs, make sure that the flexible cable
extending from the internal keyboard is correctly connected to the mainboard. If the keyboard cable
connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test.
If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following procedures in sequence to correct the problems. Do
not replace a non-defective FRU:
1.
Reconnect the keyboard cable.
2.
Replace the keyboard.
3.
Replace the mainboard.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this computer:
T
Numeric keypad
T
External keyboard
If any of these devices do not function, reconnect the cable and repeat above procedures.
Memory Check
NOTE: Make sure that the DIMM is properly installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an
error.
Do the following:
88
1.
Boot from the diagnostic diskette and start the diagnostic program.
2.
Go to the diagnostic memory in the test items.
3.
Press F2 in the test items.
4.
Follow onscreen instructions.
Chapter 4
Power System Check
Do the following:
1.
Remove the battery pack.
2.
Connect the power adapter and check the power supply.
3.
Disconnect the power adapter and install the battery pack; then check that power supply.
If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply check in the following list:
T
“Check the Power Adapter” on page 89
T
“Check the Battery Pack” on page 89
Check the Power Adapter
Unplug the power adapter cable from the system and measure the output voltage at the plug of the power
adapter cable.
1.
If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter.
2.
If the voltage is within range, do the following:
a.
Replace the System board.
b.
If the problem is not resolved, see “Undetermined Problems” on page 103.
c. 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 if the adapter’s power cord is properly connected to the
system.
4.
If the operational charge does not work, see “Check the Battery Pack” on page 89.
Check the Battery Pack

After rebooting, run Tracking Pad PS2 Mode Driver. For example Syn touch driver.
2.
Run utility with the PS/2 mouse function and check if the mouse is working.
3.
If the PS/2 mouse does not work, then click if the main board to switch board FPC is connected properly.
4.
If the main board to switch board FPC is connected correctly, then check if the FFC on the touch pad PCB
is connected properly.
5.
If the FFC on the touch pad PCB is connected correctly, check if LS851 JP1 Pin6 = 5V are pules. If yes,
then replace switch board. If not, then go to the next step.
6.
Replace the touch pad PCB.
7.
If the touch pad still does not work, then replace the FPC on Track Pad PCB.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement
will occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware
problem. No actions are necessary to be taken if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time.

Power-On Self-Test (POST) Error Message
The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes.
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.
The error messages are listed in the coming pages to indicate the BIOS signals on the screen and the error
symptoms classified by functions. If the symptom is not included on the list, please refer to “Undetermined
Problems”.
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.

Unknown interrupt
* If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 3O (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.

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:
102
1.
Run the advanced diagnostic test for the mainboard 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

System Check” on page 89.)
Follow procedures below to isolate the failing FRU. Do not isolate non-defective FRU.
1.
