Touchpad Basics (with fingerprint reader)
The following items show you how to use the touchpad with Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader:
Move your finger across the touchpad (2) to move the cursor. Press the left (1) and right (4) 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. Use Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader (3) supporting Acer FingerNav 4-way control function (only for certain models) or the 4-way scroll (3) button (only for certain models) to scroll up or down and move left or right a page. This fingerprint reader or button mimics your cursor pressing on the right scroll bar of Windows applications. Left Button (1) Quickly click twice. Right Button (3) Main touchpad (2) Tap twice (at the same speed as double-clicking a mouse button). Tap once. Tap twice (at the same speed as double-clicking a mouse button); rest your finger on the touchpad on the second tap and drag the cursor. Click once.
Click once. Click and hold, then use finger on the touchpad to drag the cursor.
Access context menu
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 touchpads responsiveness.
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 Caps Lock Num Lock <Fn> + <F11>
Description When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase. 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. 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.
Scroll Lock <Fn> + <F12>
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.
Desired access Number keys on embedded keypad Cursor-control keys on embedded keypad Main keyboard keys
Num Lock on Type numbers in a normal manner. Hold <Shift> while using cursorcontrol keys. Hold <Fn> while typing letters on embedded keypad.
Num Lock off
Hold <Fn> while using cursorcontrol keys. Type the letters in a normal manner.
The keyboard has two keys that perform Windows-specific functions. Key Description

Clearing Password Check and BIOS Recovery
This section provide you the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for Aspire 5530. Aspire 5530 provide one Hardware Open Gap on main board for clearing password check, and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS Recovery.
Clearing Password Check
Hardware Open Gap Description
Item R379 Description Clear CMOS Jumper
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).
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 Diskette should be prepared ready in hand. The Crisis Diskette could be made by executing the Crisis Disk program in another system with Windows XP OS. Follow the steps below: 1. Power Off failed system. 2. Attach a USB floppy drive to the failed system. 3. Copy jalb028.wph to tool's folder and rename it as BIOS.wph. 4. Execute wincris.exe to start the Crisis Disk Build. 5. Select Removable and click Start.
6. Select Format Disk and click Start.
A progress screen displays.
7. The following message displays when the Crisis Diskette is created successfully.
8. Click OK to complete the process. 9. Insert the Crisis Disk in to the USB floppy drive attached to the BIOS flash failed system. 10. In the power-off state, press and hold Fn+Esc then press the Power button. The system powers on and the Crisis BIOS Recovery process begins. BIOS Boot Block begins restoring the BIOS code from the Crisis floppy disk to BIOS ROM on the failed system. When the Crisis flash process is finished, the system restarts with a workable BIOS. Update to the latest version BIOS for the system using the regular BIOS flashing process.
Steps for BIOS Recovery by USB Disk:
Before doing this, one Crisis USB Disk should be prepared ready in hand. The Crisis Diskette could be made by executing the Crisis Disk program in another system with Windows XP OS. 1. Plug in USB Flash Disk. 2. Run the selected formatting program.
3. Select Quick Format and click Start. 4. Select Format Final button then exit. 5. Copy JAT10X64.fd to USB flash disk root directory. IMPORTANT:Do not place any other *.fd files in the USB flash disk root directory. 6. In the power-off state, press and hold Fn+Esc then press the Power button. The system powers on and the Crisis BIOS Recovery process begins. BIOS Boot Block begins restoring the BIOS code from the Crisis USB disk to BIOS ROM on the failed system. When the Crisis flash process is finished, the system restarts with a workable BIOS. Update to the latest version BIOS for the system using the regular BIOS flashing process.
This chapter gives you the FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) listing in global configurations of Aspire 5530. Refer to this chapter whenever ordering for parts to repair or for RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization). Please note that WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. For whatever reasons a part number change is made, it will not be noted on the printed Service Guide. For ACER AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code from those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the local FRU list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines. NOTE: To scrap or to return the defective parts, you should follow the local government ordinance or regulations on how to dispose it properly, or follow the rules set by your regional Acer office on how to return it.
