Re: acer...mouse and keyboard wont work

Hi, It is highly unusual for a unit "just out of box" to have problems like these. Perhaps your best bet is to return it and demand a replacement unit. Alternately if you would want a temporary work around, try using external keyboard or mouse just to complete the setup (but as said highly unusual. Normally the kb & mouse should have been pre-installed with the initial part of the setup). In some instances, it takes a bit of a time for the necessary drivers to be loaded up for USB kb & mouse. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Acer 5570z keyboard is locked..Mouse works fine. Tried it in safe mode..keyboard still wont work..but mouse will...Even reloaded the operating system and keyboard still doesnt work..

Hook an external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! replace the laptop keyboard. If no change check bios setting to make sure the laptop is not disabled, and reset bios to factory default.

Acer travelmate 4100 works fine with no battery

Try to use another OS, like Ubuntu Live, and see if the mouse and KB will freeze. If they wont freeze, It is better to reinstall the OS.

If they will freeze again with Ubuntu, then I am sorry to tell you that the battery life has finished.

The only thing to do is to replace it for another one new.

Thanks for rating!!

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!

Check to make sure your touch pad is not turned off. Regarding the keyboard you need to check to see if you have set the laptop to work off an external keyboard. Check the function keys at the top of the keyboard they are used to turn on and off the keyboard and mouse functions

My keyboard and mouse dont work, if I plug in usb mouse and keyboard dont work

Go into your Bios by hitting one of your f keys when your computer starts up. Look through it and let me know if you have all of the USB support turned on. After you check that we can trouble shoot further.

Am I reading this wrong?
Are you saying that your keyboard does not work but your mouse will? Or are you saying that neither will work on USB?

Check your BIOS either way and let me know.

Do not rate this until we are finished trouble shooting.

Keyboard keep taking ma cursor back i ve have made fresh installations but it still wont work i even installed new bios tried new mouse and keybaord but it still wont work.i think acer really is bad

if the cursor is moving by itself off the screen then it is likely that the mouse pad is bad or needs reseated ,
remove the keyboard and re-seat or disconnect the mouse pad.
