I have an Aspire 1350.
Some of the keys, when pressed, return the wrong scan code and
therefore return the wrong keys.
For example when I press enter I get a <tab>;p3...
I used a couple of remapping programs that are basically GUI registry
editors for the scan code and it even seems that 1-3 different scan
codes are returned for the same key. This happens on other keys too
like the =/+ key. It returns a scan code of 63 most of the time - a
large number like 53382 infrequently, and 66 rarely - by rarely I mean
I tried a new keyboard and I am using the supposedly newest BIOS. I
called Acer and they told me it was a keyboard problem even though I
told them over and over it wasn't.
Seems to be the keyboard controller (kbc) but I would really like to
find a way to fix it rather than mapping a different key to enter.
Anyone know of a greater revision BIOS than A29? Any way to flash the
kbc - I see it has a version number in BIOS too. Any other ideas on
how to overcome this problem and make the enter key work - hardware or
