Hi...

The best way to check if it is a keyboard issue or computer, is go to the BIOS Setup screen and check the keyboard there.
Let me know
Thanks

Have an Acer 5100 Aspire. Keyboard, touchpad both not working. If I hold down Alt+Tab+F10 while powering up the laptop will keep the computer from booting up, but nothing else. I have tried USB keyboard...


Do one thing performing the recovery option by ALT+F10 and restore your system to factory default

before that you take backup with the important data

ACER 5100 starts up and cursor is frozen in middle of screen. Keyboard does not work either. I have already tried FN with F6, FN with F7 does nothing. DO you have a solution? Thank you. BobE


I think that is a driver problem, try to reinstall de windows OS and it may function, then you can download the original complete drivers of http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html depending of the OS that you install.

Acer Aspire 5100 Keyboard Not Working


Hi

this is a common fault in the acer aspire 5100 series, also in few other series, 3102wlmi, I have it here. same issue as you. I ordered a new keyboard for it but Haven't tried it yet. unlikely to solve the problem. I beleave the issue is on the motherboard.

Touchpad and keyboard are dead on my 3102 also. I will try the new keyboard on Thursday and get back to you if it solved the problem.

possibly the only fix that can be performed at home is to replace the whole board, most computer repair shops will also just replace the motherboard.

it will require a close inspection on the motherboard, have you already contacted acer? I think the price of a new motherboard at www.acerparts.com is around 200-500 usd I haven't checked myself.

Frozen keyboard acer 5100


Does this happen every time you boot?
Have you tried an external keyboard?

Frozen keyboard


you possibly have a spyware infection, (like a virus)

if you reboot and have the same problems, then try booting into safe mode, if keyboard still locked up, try using an external keyboard (to test your system), if the external keybard works then it may just be that your keyboard is broken (and needs replacing)
