aspire 5050 keyboard does not work cannot turn off

Had a problem with when I booted the Aspire 5050 laptop. The keyboard and mouse would not work after windows xp loaded. I obtained the solotion from the following link and took the below steps -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/51337-35-keyboard-mouse-work-vista-login-screen

1) Followed the acer website link and downloaded the appropriate keypad drivers by looking for Aspire 5050 (5050 is the model)

2) Put it on a pin drive.

2.5) Unplugged the acer 5050 battery and still allowed the power cord to be plugged in (in effort to save time)

3) booted the acer 5050 laptop and kept hitting F8 to go into safe mode

4) logged into safe mode as 'Admin' and ran the setup from the drivers after inserting the pin drive.

5) shutdown windows

6) plugged the battery back in, turned the power on, everything works fine.

Thanks, Rusty!

On my acer 5742-7645 my touchpad has stoped working?


Hi,

Just check for the key combination on your keyboard (ex. Fn + F4 or F5..depends on the what key was designed for the touchpad), the touchpad might be locked.

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5535-5050 only starts in "safe mode"


when you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.

Good Morning: I have an Acer Aspire 5920


Hello,

As by your description, the FN F7 key combo did not solve the problem. Please restart the machine , press F8 then select from the list "Safe mode" then press enter. Then see how the Touch pad reacts in Safe mode. If it works perfectly in safe mode, we can assume you have a software problem that is preventing it from working in normal windows mode.

Please download and install the latest BIOS for your machine. The E525 has a issue where the TP just stops working, upgrading the BIOS solves the issue on the E525...

Please install one of these drivers for the desired Operating system...
