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!!!

I've lost my Acer Aspire Z5710 dongle. Is it possible to find some other USB device to connect existing keyboard and mouse? Maybe there're any third-party compatible dongle manufacturer?


Why can't you just connect the keyboard and mouse to the usb ports on the machine?
You should be able to find the part on ebay or Acer parts for that matter.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a fantastic day.

The green circular connection IS for a standard PS/2 mouse. Your USB mouse should work, however. Make sure it is connected BEFORE you power up and let the PC boot up completely. If the mouse will then not move, either the mouse is faulty or the USB port is disabled. Good Luck, Ian.

Wireless keyboard & mouse will not connect


Would try going into the device manager in the control panel and make sure that the usb dongle is being identified correctly by windows. Also, would unplug any other usb devices so that they are not interfering.

Is your mouse a usb or ps2 port? Does your computer detect usb port? Why don't try other mouse or check if a usb drive has installed.

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work


Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.
