Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook

Acer Aspire 5050 won't run in normal mode only safe mode

Laptop originally wouldn't let keyboard work. Mouse and internet connection would work, but the keyboard wouldn't work. Keyboard would however work in DOS or CMD mode. I'm talking about the built-in keyboard. After rebooting and trying to system restore it finally started working for a few minutes in normal startup would blue screen to say int15.sys Driver is attempting to access memory after it has been freed. Have run several registry cleaners and even renamed sys files that seem to be not working. Still won't work in normal mode. Can use keyboard and internet in safe mode, but have given up on getting it to run in normal mode. Please email me with answers at johnw@cwis.net as I'm having a lot of trouble reading webpages in safe mode. Thank you.

    The integrated keyboard, touch pad, and power button stopped working for me.

    On what may be a related note, I also have a yellow exclamation point in the device manager referring to the SM Bus Controller. This is related to the ATI Sound/Modem hardware. I was able to temporarily fix the keyboard issue by uninstalling the webcam, modem, and SM Bus Controller, but until I can solve the problem with SM Bus, I sense this will be a recurring problem.

    When you start getting errors like that I always opt for a reimage/windows reinstall

Try reinstalling the ATI Southbridge Drivers. The AMD website will have a link (it's on the same page as the Catalyst drivers).

You will have to use version 9.3 as the Radeon Xpress series is no longer supported with 9.4 and up.

Sounds to me like a glitchy install. Try reinstalling the operating system and ensuring that you are using all the updated drivers for your hardware.

Laptop freezes up


Try re installing both, while in safe mode go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to keyboard,click '+' and right click on keyboard and select uninstall. Re start laptop and see if it works ok. Do the same for the mouse, but look for the line mouse and other pointing devices and uninstal and restart. try also updating the drivers. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3000_5000.html
