Brand New and Locked

I bought a new acer 5100 yesterday. Turned it on and it is locked on the Welcome screen. It won't go away and does not have a x to shut off. Anything I try to do and bareley see behind it says "user not authorized". thinking of taking it back to the "Source" for a refund?

Unable to use touch pad....rt clk and slide key


If the laptop is that new, the problem is probably the touch pad "disable" button. Look for a small button just above or near the touch pad and make sure the touch pad is not turned off. If you cannot find the disable button, look in your user manual for the touch pad disable.

Blank screen with curser


If your Acer is brand new and less than 1 year old then I suggest returning it to the shop where you bought it and have it repaired under warranty. If you try to repair it you may void your warranty.
