Windows 7: Boot menu at start up, 2 min of beeps before Win7 successfully starts

Hit update driver and point it manually to CardReader_Broadcom_1.0.0.219_Win7x64\XD\x64 and see if it will find it. Should be in that folder.

I tried to navigate to the folder, it tells me that it is installing it, but then stops and tells me that the driver is not intended for the platform.


(I am having issues with 2 keyboards and this acer, more with an external USB one (that works on my asus) than the keyboard on the acer. I can explain more if you like.)

You mean your usb keyboards are not connecting to the laptop? IS this since the driver install, and have you rebooted the laptop since doing this?

Now the external keyboard issue seems to be working itself out upon every restart, just like the mysterious right click thing. Beyond keyboards, what we did with the driver updates today got a third USB port to recognize anything in it, when it did not before. So, thank you again.

With the keyboard on the laptop, I can never get the left "shift" key to type a "(" and I don't know if it has to do with anything at all. All other keys where shift can apply work fine with that left key. "9" types out fine alone. The right "shift" key does type out a ")" and everything else it is supposed to, I think.

I still cannot download that card reader driver.

I have rebooted three times since my last reply and still get those mind jarring beeps.

Sorry late reply mate now Malcom has already said what I would have done and just so we know what that card reader device is can you run PART B: of this please and let us know what brand and model that device actually is - I am not sure just where it might be located but in my pic there a few places you could look .
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT as a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE (sometimes the usual one for Gigabyte boards)
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
Limits +/- (minimum - correct - maximum)
12v1 = 11.4 - 12 - 12.6v
12v2 = 11.4 - 12- 12.6v
5v = 4.75 5 - 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 3 3.465v
-12v = -10.80 - -12 - -13.20v
+5VSB = 4.75 5 - 5.25v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s
See this for the rail voltage info
PSUs 101: A Detailed Look Into Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Hello. I downloaded HWiNFO64 v5.46 for Windows (Native 64-bit), launched it, selected "sensors only" at the welcome page, and this is what I see. I don't see an attachment that seems to relate to this on your last post, cannot figure out how to close a right window, select sensors, nor can I tell where the power section is. The program also closes on its own and won't relaunch; I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it once, but it still does it.

Relaunch it without senors only. Then it will open a second window behind with the info John wants.

The program closes itself whenever I come back to my browser to read what it is I am supposed to be looking for here. Then when I go to my start menu, click on the program, tell it yes I want the program to make changes on my computer, the spinning wheel shows up and the program never launches no matter how many times I try. This has made me uninstall the program via windows uninstaller twice, then reinstall it again. But the last time the uninstaller told me it could not delete all of the files. I tried installing it again but it said the program already exists but I told it to do it anyway and it did. It's behaving the same way now as the last two times I have installed it--dropping off then won't open again.

I could try download Revo Uninstaller to uninstall it again, download HWiNFO64 again, but I am thinking I might be chasing my tail with it...only to have it behave the same way.

I got the program to work, somehow, I think, for now. I guess their most current version is on another page of the website.

Were there supposed to be two pic attachments on your last post? I am seeing nothing on your pic that I can discern as (Nuvoton) with VBATT to compare what I see to. I have attached a photo of something--not sure what--that looks similar to the one pic in your last post. Hopefully it is useful for us.

Hmmmm, I do not see a section 2 or anything about rail voltage on the page titles.
