Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard problem The keyboard is fronzen even tough i've re-booted the system a couple of times. the mouse is frozen too, and there is no ps2 where i could attach an external keyboard. the power on / off button works fine. The hole keyboard frozen thing started when i added an usb flash disk, after reinstalling my windows. I am very aware that this could be a strictly hardware issue, but this happened only since i reinstalled my windows and added amd processor update software from the cd. now i cannot uninstall it anymore since keybord is frozen even in DOS. Thank you

Why the wireless keyboard and wireless mouse don't work on my acer Aspire Z1-621 all in one pc

Strange that BOTH stopped working. Did you check batteries?
Remove USB controller for mouse and test keyboard alone,
Then replace mouse and remove keyboard USB You should use another keyboard (USB or PS2) because your computer won't start up without a keyboard.
If both fail, test them on some othrer computer, ask a friend. Might take sust seconsds to do it.
If test on other computer shows ok, you may have some problem in USB ports.
If actually neither of them work anywhare, so no way but still interesting question, how both of them went bad at same time?
Actually I 've heard many complaints of these wirelss keyboards and Mouse. Probably there are some very bad quality around.
I had a wireless mouse and worked only for about 3 months.

Sony vaio laptop is turning on but the keybord+mouse not working

If your Keyboard and mouse are PS2 type, turn off your system, unplug them and try a USB type mouse and keyboard instead. If you are already using USB type mouse and keyboard, then try plugging them into different USB ports. Bootup in Safe Mode if possible. If you do not have keyboard functionality during the initial boot process, you may have sustained damage to the motherboard. The fact you mentioned a noise (speaker type?) and then lost component function, would indicate a possible hardware failure

Keyboard/touchpad problem.

The keyboard and touch-pad are connected to an internal USB interface, If no USB interfaces are working at all this suggests that the USB host controller (a physical computer chip) has failed.
You can try a chip-set reset; disconnect both power and battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (timed), this will reset all chip settings to default and discharge any static buildup but this is in no way guaranteed to fix the problem. If the laptop is still under warranty arrange for repair.
In the mean time most of the Aspire 5100 series have a PC card slot on the side so you could use a USB or PS2 host card to connect a keyboard and mouse.
