Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

The keyboard, built in and external mouse do not respond.

My laptop comes on but I cannot enter my system because I have a password to allow me to do so. I will have to type in the password using the keyboard but the keyboard does not respond. The built in mouse and the USB ports do not work also.

If BIOS menu has User password set then nothing will work until you type in the password. The keyboard will appear not to be working until correct pwd is typed. Try entering your password like this
pwd1<Enter> pwd2<Enter> pwd3<Enter>
where pwd1 is your guess at the password and <Enter> is when you press the <Enter> key on keyboard.

Mouse didn't detected


Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

Hp550 computer not going to sleep mode properly


No matter which model of HP laptop you own, battery life is a big issue. Hibernation mode is designed to increase the battery life of your HP laptop by switching off the monitor, hard drive and other parts of the unit after they have been idle for a specific period of time. While hibernation mode works well most of the time, in some cases, your HP laptop may not wake from hibernation the way it should.

Docking Station Issues Many hibernation problems are caused not by the HP laptop itself but by the docking station to which it is attached. Some models of docking station interfere with the normal operation of the hibernation on the HP laptop. The easiest way to test this is to remove the laptop from the docking station and allow it to sit until hibernation begins. If hibernation mode works with the laptop undocked but not while docked, you know the problem lies with the docking station instead of the HP laptop. b> Remote Desktop Issues If you need to connect to your HP laptop from elsewhere, it is helpful to reset the power settings to the Always On mode before you leave your home or office. Many models of HP laptops do not wake properly from hibernation when users connect to them remotely using the remote desktop feature of Windows. When users connect with remote desktop, the program sends a signal to the remote computer that should wake it from hibernation and allow it to function normally. However, this process does not always work as intended with HP computers, so it helps to change the power settings to allow a seamless connection. Video Drivers Problems with HP laptop hibernation also can be caused by a corrupt or outdated video drive. HP laptops come with built-in video processors, and the drivers they use are installed during the initial setup of the unit. If there is a problem with that driver, HP releases an update, so if you see problems with hibernation, your first step should be to check for an updated video driver. b> External Keyboard and Mouse Sometimes the HP laptop does not respond properly and does not wake from hibernation when you use the built-in keyboard and touchpad mouse. The sensitivity of HP touchpads varies from model to model, and that sensitivity can be reduced over time. You can test for this problem by attaching an external keyboard and mouse to the laptop to determine whether that resolves the problem.

I bought a Sylvania SYNET07526 in CVS and everything was working fine. Yesterday I put a password to login to then I turn it off. Today I turned on the netbook and asks me the password but do not let me...


Hello, I think you can plug in an external keyboard in one of the usb ports on the side (not the back ones) One is for an external mouse, and one for a keyboard.
If you have an external keyboard with a usb plug on it, try plugging it in and entering your password that way.
Doesn't everything bought new have warranty of some kind?-It does in the UK anyway.
Kind regards,

CANT ENTER MY PASSWORD TO GET IN MY COMPUTER KEYS NOT TYPING ON SCREEN ITS LIKE THE WIRELESS KEY BOARD IS NOT RESPONDING


My advice would be to put new batteries in the keyboard and see if that works, failing that, pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to log in to your system then re-connect the wireless set to re-install the drivers.

Dear Sue_s46,

Try and double chek all settings relate to keyboard and mouse by following below steps.

go to control panle- Mouse, double check it has not changed the settings the way normally works for left-right click and wheel.

regarding keyboard, go to control panle- regional and language settings. double check all settings are fine there.

if you dont get luck with anything, you might have Sony utility relate to keyboard/mouse. you can search for that program from start menu and within all programms.

let me know, if nothing works or any other issues.

also, let me know which operating system you have on Sony Laptop?

Dell Studio 15 laptop mouse does not work at start up.


It sounds to me like the mouse buillt into your laptop is conflicting with the Dell external mouse. If you go into control panel and click on mouse, you can disable your built-in mouse. Restart your computer with the USB mouse plugged in and see if that does the trick. I would be surprised if it does not. On the off chance it doesn't work, you will have to enable your built-in mouse and we can check to see if there are any additional conflicts happening through your hardware profiles in the system area of control panel.
