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.

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.

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.

Using the Keyboard

Your Gateway EC14D has a close-to-full-sized keyboard and an embedded numeric keypad, separate cursor, lock, 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 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, 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.

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:

New versions of system programs

New features or options

Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted. Use the Phlash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.

NOTE: If you do not have a crisis recovery diskette at hand, then you should create a Crisis Recovery Diskette before you use the Phlash utility.

NOTE: Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Phlash.

NOTE: Please use the AC adaptor power supply when you run the Phlash utility. If the battery pack does not contain enough power to finish BIOS flash, you may not boot the system because the BIOS is not completely loaded.

Fellow the steps below to run the Phlash.

2.An Encode key is generated for unlocking utilities. Note down this key.

3.Execute the UnlockHD.EXE file to create the unlock code in DOS Mode using the format UnlockHD [Encode key] with the code noted in the previous step, as follows:

UnlockHD 76943488

4.The command generates a password which can be used for unlocking the HDD.

Password: 46548274

5.Key in the password from the previous step to unlock the HDD as shown.

Miscellaneous Utilities

Using Boot Sequence Selector

Boot Sequence Selector allows the boot order to be changed without accessing the BIOS. To use Boot Sequence Selector, perform the following steps:

1.Enter into DOS.

2.Execute BS.exe to display the usage screen.

3.Select the desired boot sequence by entering the corresponding sequence, for example, enter BS2 to change the boot sequence to HDD|CD ROM|LAN|Floppy.

Using DMITools

The DMI (Desktop Management Interface) Tool copies BIOS information to eeprom to be used in the DMI pool for hardware management.

When the BIOS displays Verifying DMI pool data it is checking the table correlates with the hardware before sending to the operating system (Windows, etc.).

To update the DMI Pool, perform the following steps:

1.Enter into DOS.

2.Execute dmitools.exe. The following messages show dmitools usage: DMITOOLS [ /R | /WP | /WS | /WU ] [ STRING ]

dmitools /r ==> Read dmi string from bios

dmitools /wm xxxx ==> Write manufacturer name to eeprom

dmitools /wp xxxx ==> Write product name to eeprom

dmitools /ws xxxx ==> Write serial number to eeprom

dmitools /wu xxxx ==> Write uuid to eeprom

dmitools /wa xxxx ==> Write asset tag to eeprom

IMPORTANT:The following write examples (2 to 5) require a system reboot to take effect

Example 1: Read DMI Information from Memory

Input: dmitools /r

Output:

Manufacturer (Type1, Offset04h): Acer

Product Name (Type1, Offset05h): TravelMate xxxxx

Serial Number (Type1, Offset07h): 01234567890123456789

UUID String (Type1, Offset08h): xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx Asset Tag (Type3, Offset04h): Acer Asstag

Example 2: Write Product Name to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /wp Acer

Example 3: Write Serial Number to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /ws 01234567890123456789

Example 4: Write UUID to EEPROM (Create UUID from Intel WFM20.pdf)

Input:

dmitools /wu

Example 5: Write Asset Tag to EEPROM

Input:

dmitools /wa Acer Asstag

Using the LAN MAC Utility

Perform the following steps to write MAC information to eeprom:

1.Use a text editor, for example Notepad, to edit the MAC.CFG file as shown:

WriteData= '001122334455' <------- MAC value

StartAddr=7A <------- MAC address

WriteLeng=6 <------- MAC value length

KeepByte=0 <------- can be any value

2.Boot into DOS.

3.Execute MAC.BAT to write MAC information to eeprom.
