ACER ASPIRE 5101AWLMI I have had a continued problem with the mouse and usb ports are not working. I was told it was because of a recent Acer update. Can you please supply me with a copy of Windows Vista so that I can get it working.

    I recently spoke to someone on Acer Helpline who was of no use having already spent hundreds of dollars trying to get this problem fixed. I see others have this problem as well! I was told it was due to a Windows update which rendered my usb ports unseable!!!! Now I am told to purchase Windows Vista to solve the problem. Why should I need to do that when the problem was not caused by muself!!!

Technically it was! YOU chose to install the update - dud you not think to create a restore point beforehand?

try restoring your pc to an earlier time

My Acer laptop ASPIRE 5738 does not recognise USB Mouse, previously it is working fine. But if I attach other USB device it is working. It is only problem with USB mouse.


Do you have another USB mouse around that you can test with? It sounds like the USB port on your laptop is fine but the mouse is the issue.
If you can find a spare around and test or alternatively you could try to bring the laptop to a friends house and borrow their USB mouse temporarily.
My guess is that the other mouse will work fine. How many USB ports does this computer have? You can also try changing which port you plug it in to.

My external mouse quit working on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop.I have tried plugging it in to all the ports. It says USB device not recognized.


you might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty
((if applicable))
make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware make sure you have the correct mouse selected also under hardware you can troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot
in xp
hope this helps

My mouse pad does not work nor does USB cable


Has the mouse lock been applied.
Press and hold the "FN" key and then press "F9" this should unlock the mouse and touch pad.
Failing that try updating the drivers for both using the device manager as I have found that recent updates have disabled my touch pad and I have rolled back the drivers to the previous ones.

USB ports not working


I think the root issue of usb ports not working is a problem with your USB port's drivers no longer communicating with your computer. This often occurs when you install an update to your computer's operating system.

USB ports not working Acer Aspire laptop


Two solutions would be to either restore your pc to before the problem started,using system restore on accesories menu, or use the recovery cd or the recovery folder Acer laptops usually have on the 'D' drive and re-install usb controllers and drivers.
