Sounds like you have it set to wake up by LAN. Check the settings in the control panel under power options. If that don't help trty chaning the option in the CMOS setup.

My Acer Aspire 5100 tells me that my USB port are


Check the driver status of the USB. You can do this by accessing the Device Manager. For users using Windows XP, just click the Start icon. On the Run box, type devmgmt.msc. You can also do the same with Vista.

Next thing, check for devices with an (!) sign with a yellow background. These devices needs driver update or correct driver should be installed.

For a start, you can do a Windows Update. Click Start, All Programs, and then Windows Update. This will download patches for your system.

Usb ports wont work


Go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, and Device Manager. Look for serial ports/USB ports. Verify installed and active. If not, go to Bios 'setup' at start-up and activate from there. Be sure to save and exit even if you change nothing--otherwise everything returns to default.

USB ports wont recognize anything I plug in


Are you using XP? If so:
Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
2. Select PROPERTIES
3. Select HARDWARE
4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
5. Select UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB device.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook Boots to Windows, but nothing works. No keyboard, no mouse, no usb or CD, no external monitor. I have an Aspire 5100 Acer Laptop that has no keyboard or mouse function period...


Try booting your computer from CD ROM with the OS CD/DVD already inserted and when prompted just try repair. If that does not work re-install the same on the same 'partition' assuming it to be C by deleting the the windows system files only. While doing so keep the internet on and immediately after the basic version of the OS is installed and the m/c boots-up for the first time, go to the official website and download the latest drivers for every component like toch-pad, keypad, display, audio, etc.(i.e. almost all the drivers)

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

All USB ports not working


Sounds like a shorted out board. If you use a faulty device.. these can EASILY short out the USB controllers on the motherboard.

Alternative is to purchase a "PCMCIA USB expansion card" till you can replace the motherboard.

best wishes.

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
