Acer computers
« on: Mar 29, 2010, 16:28 »
Just been down to local computer shop with my son and his acer computer because the touchpad left and right buttons have stopped working. Apparently this is a well known problem with acer computers and not very cheap to fix as its the buttons attached direct to the motherboard that break because they are very flimsy and the only way to replace them is to replace the motherboard.
So I  guess he is going to have to use a usb mouse for now.

They are an absolute pile of summut smelly...!

Had one here for the Home Access Grant, basically get a free computer if you're kids are in juniors and your income is relatively low. Been back to Acer after 3 days as it stopped working and got the low down that the gov are being charged 400 quid for these by Comet and Acer, but the parts are so cheap they don't even sell this one publically.

However had another one previously and that broke after 2 months. So moral of the story seems to be - avoid Acer laptops like the plauge! Buy a Dell, HP or Sony....keyboards are nicer too.
