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.

If it is NEW and it is DEFECTIVE, take it back, and exchange it for one that DOES work.

Be sure that you connect the keyboard's tail into the keyboard port on the computer.

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!!

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.

Wireless mouse and keyboard not working

If you have got a USB receiver for the wireless keyboard and mouse, then the solution might be with the receiver. Normally we know that to play a USB thumb drive, we simply plug in and play. But some model of Acer computer require us to press the button on the thumb drive to activate it. The model I had (an Aspire model) set the press button same as the blicking light bulb. So (a) turn on computer, (b) plug in thumb drive receiver (c) press button on the drive, (d) press "contact" button on the mouse and keyboard. That works for me.

Acer monitor frozen & curser will not move.

If your mouse will not move, it is a problem with the computer, Make sure you're plugging it into the correct port. If it's a ps2 mouse don't plug it into the keyboard port by mistake.

Does the keyboard work? If you press the windows key does the start menu come up?

If the keyboard works, try using a USB mouse. If the keyboard does not work, try plugging the keyboard in where the mouse is and the mouse in where the keyboard is.
