Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer Aspire M5201 Boot Problem

When I switch the PC on, it recognizes the keyboard & mouse, the hard disk LED flashes 3 times, it sends no signal to the display and then hangs.

The display works perfectly with another PC, so could it be the graphics card that is defective, or could it be something else?

Laptop has no bootable device.


Hi, normally acer uses 'F12' key to select boot device. Switch on your laptop, make your Hard Disk to be the first boot, your DVDrw to be the 2nd one etc...
However, if you do not see your Hard disk, you should switch off laptop & power it on again by holding 'F2' this time. See if your Hard Disk etc are listed.
If you don't see your HDD, therefore there may be a problem with your Hard Disk & may need replacement...(I hope not)
Well send us your vote & feedback to help us help you!

Acer laptop keyboard and touchpad not working Have had the acer aspire 5100 laptop for two years. Would not boot up. Sent to have fixed under warrany. Came back the boot up was fixed but now the keyboard...


The Acer service centre have probably not connected the keyboard and touchpad to the motherboard. Common mistake by Acer. It is best to send it back to Acer to have it fixed under warranty as if you try it yourself, the laptop could be rendered out of warranty. Good luck... :)

Touch pad not working


If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. 
Try to boot on Safemode. 
Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. 
Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. 
It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.
