Preface

Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information.

1.This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g. add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.

2.Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.

Touchpad Basics

The following items show you how to use the touchpad:

Move your finger across the touchpad (1) to move the cursor.

Press the left (2) 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.

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

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys

<Fn> + <F11>

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> +

When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press

<F12>

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.

System Utilities

BIOS Setup Utility

The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/ Output System).

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 if a 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, Power, Boot, and Exit. Follow these instructions:

To choose a menu, use the left and right arrow keys.

To choose an item, use the up and down arrow keys.

To change the value of a parameter, press F5 or F6.

A plus sign (+) indicates the item has sub-items. Press Enter to expand this item.

Press Esc while you are in any of the menu options to go to the Exit menu.

In any menu, you can load default settings by pressing F9. You can also press F10 to save any changes made and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

NOTE: You can change the value of a parameter if it is enclosed in square brackets. Navigation keys for a particular menu are shown on the bottom of the screen. Help for parameters are found in the Item Specific Help part of the screen. Read this carefully when making changes to parameter values. Please note that system information is subject to different models.
