was there any liquid damage? just to check the intregrity of the hardware i would maybe boot off of a linux distro just to check and see if it works that way. ubuntu is free and if you can choose to "try linux without installing" option just to verify. this will let you know if it is a hardware or software problem.
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)
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.
first of all u have to re install windows( operating system)
before inserting the windows cd u have to plug an external keybord and mouse and start the system.
boot from cd and continue.
the laptop keybord and mouse could be unusable anymore.
A temporay solution is to use a pcmia card with usb port slots. That way you can connect a usb keyboard, usb mouse or any other peripheral device thru this slot. It has worked for me for 1 month so far. It is the most inexpensive way to temporarily fix this aspire 5100 manufacturer defect. I believe that this model easily overheats and affects the motherboard in areas that control dvd, usbs, keyboard and mouse. I am contemplating a suit against Acer for this 'lemon' of a product. There has been no recall nor support from Acer to fix this problem and they continue selling this and other defective products. Feel free to email me at email@example.com from comments or questions.
