    Yes my acer aspire 5100 notebook did exactly the same thing.Was fine then all of a sudden mouse would not respond,so I tried keyboard and it would not respond? I shut off and turned back on, it booted up to welcome page but couldnt sign in due to no response from mouse or keyboard.

You need to reinstall the driver of your laptop or update your BIOS to latest version but be careful about updating the BIOS.

OS loads but keyboard, mouse pad and usb ports


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.

Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook Boots to Windows, but nothing works. No keyboard, no mouse, no usb or CD, no external monitor. I have an Aspire 5100 Acer Laptop that has no keyboard or mouse function period...


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)

Can not get my key board to respond when coputer boots up,


Do you get video at least?
Do you get keyboard during POST? (Try turning the system off, turn it on and keep hitting F8 until you get to a windows boot selection screen)

Does Windows boot all the way up but you just cannot interact with the laptop? Try plugging in an external mouse/keyboard/speakers, or remove it from the docking station if it is attached to one.
If you get keyboard/mouse before windows (able to move up and down the boot selection screen), then Windows may just need to be reinstalled for some strange reason.

If you still aren't getting anything, the motherboard may need to be replaced.
