    Sometimes after booting up both the keyboard and the touchpad will not work. When this happens I must uninstall the keyboard driver and do a reboot. Another strange thing that occurs when the keyboard and touchpad stop working is that although an external mouse will work the computer will not reboot unless I remove ALL power sources (unplugging computer and removing the battery). I have tried rebooting throught the start button as well as using the power button. I have already gone out to Acer's website and downloaded the most current version of the driver.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

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 5050 won't run in normal mode only safe mode


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.

System boots to the paasword area then the keyboard and curser freezes up can not put in password.


Sounds like a mouse driver error. Try unplugging the mouse and booting with only the keyboard connected. Once you've typed in your password and logged-in you will need to 1) delete the existing mouse driver and 2) plug your mouse in and let Windows discover the new hardware. Use the recommended driver and reboot your system after it's finished installing.

Good Luck!
