|newegg and fedex rocks!!! got this product over a week now and really satisfied with what I paid. everything is working perfect. nice display. Anyway all these cons are not relevant, but pros are. Actually you get even more than you pay for! Very poratable. should remove battery when near plug to save battery life. or if use battery, adjust cpu speed on low. budget wise, everything work.|

The following teaches you how to use the touchpad: Aspire 3620:
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 the 4-way scroll (3) button to scroll up or down and move left or right a page. This button mimics your cursor pressing on the right scroll bar of Windows applications.
Left Button (1) Click twice quickly
Right Button (4)
Main touchpad (2) Tap twice (at the same speed as doubleclicking the mouse button) Tap once Tap twice (at the same speed as doubleclicking a mouse button) then hold finger to the touchpad on the second tap to drag the cursor.

Use the following procedure as a guide for computer problems. NOTE: The diagnostic tests are intended to test only Acer products. Non-Acer products, prototype cards, or modified options can give false errors and invalid system responses. 1. 2. 3. Obtain the failing symptoms in as much detail as possible. Verify the symptoms by attempting to re-create the failure by running the diagnostic test or by repeating the same operation. Use the following table with the verified symptom to determine which page to go to.
If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the computer. If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Re-install the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
If the touchpad doesnt work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. 2. 3. Reconnect the touchpad cables. Replace the touchpad. Replace the system board.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware problem. No service actions are necessary 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. The most likely cause is listed first. 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. This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when servicing a computer. If the symptom is not listed, see Undetermined Problems on page 82. The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and the error symptoms classified by function. 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.
