It sounds like maybe the keyboard died if that can happen in a laptop. Or maybe a connection came loose inside the unit. Was it dropped or anything like that? Laptops are hard to repair because everything inside is very small and delicate. If it needs a keyboard replacement it won't be cheap. Maybe a driver got turned off somehow. Look in the BIOS and the device manager to check that. Hopefully it is that simple. You could always carry an external keyboard around with you which would kind of defeat the purpose of having a laptop in the first place. I've seen these flexible roll-up keyboards that aren't too big. That might be an option.

Touchpad, mouse and keyboard not working


Try installing the touchpad driver from here http://www.helpjet.net/files-Acer-Aspire-4810T.html#ATouchpad
Once you are done restart your Acer and see what happens.
If this doesnt resolve the issue it may be a problem with the hardware in which case you may need a new touchpad. otherwise just use a mouse as a fix either temporarily or if it turns out to be to expensive to fix.

My touchpad isn't working how can i fix this??


Some laptops disable the TouchPad while an other mouse is connected thrugh USB.

Also, please check on your keyboard for a black-mouse-icon-in-a-square on a keyboard button and press FN + that button, you might have accidentally disabled the mouse by pressing that combination in the first place.

You might also have disabled your mouse from your mouse driver software (Synaptics etc).

Good luck and please rate this solution in order to keep the good answers comming !

Keyboard and touchpad stopped working


Just check that your computer is not attacked with any virus. You can use Avira Antivir for best free antivirus. http://free-av.com and install spyware terminator for checking any spywares.
If you dont have any virus or spyware then check the drivers. Just go to device manager in your system and check that drivers are installed or not. If not install it once again.

I cant give you exact solution because the question looks generic.. If any of the above is not helpful to you then please get back to me.

Mouse and Keyboard no longer work


Your laptop probably disables your touchpad when any USB mouse is detected. This is pretty reasonable, since your palms can easily stray over the touchpad during touch-typing. I'm not sure how to go about disabling that, but I'm 95% sure there's a way (even if it involves some command-line stuff).

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working


As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
