Notebook Keyboard will not work and neither does the touch pad for the mouse
Hi My Name is Ben, I have an acer aspire 1640 just recently when I turn my notebook on the mouse does not seem to work, it will work for 2 seconds then stop working, the keyboard does the same thing. It will not allow me to log on. What do you think the problem is?, and do you think it is worth repairing? Some people tell me it is the Hard Drive, I dont think it is. Can you Help me?

if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing
I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.
If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. Try to boot on Safemode. Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.
Check to make sure your touch pad is not turned off. Regarding the keyboard you need to check to see if you have set the laptop to work off an external keyboard. Check the function keys at the top of the keyboard they are used to turn on and off the keyboard and mouse functions
