Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
It sounds as if your keyboard might not be connected any longer. This might be the result of a sudden jarring motion to the laptop, or a drop.
Use the above illustration to lift out the keyboard and make sure the Keyboard flex cable is attached to the connector (scroll down at the site listed above to see illustrations of the cable and connector).
The same link shows how to connect the flex cable, if it is disconnected.
Hope this helps.

If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.
I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.
I hope this helps.
