You say that the computer works in safe mode. This indicates that there is probably something running that is interfering with your mouse and keyboard.
Run MSCONFIG from the command line and go to the startup tab. Disable all the items and restart in normal mode. See if that makes an improvement. If it does, then you can go into MSCONFIG and re-enable stuff as needed until you find the one program/utililty that is messing things up.
As for the battery, if you unplug the computer, does it keep running? If so, the battery is probably OK. If it stops, you need a new battery. If the battery is fairly new, then you might have a different problem, but let's try this other stuff first.

Hello acer Aspire model number 5052 AWXMi wont power up, there is no signs of life no flicker of leds and i have tried removing and replacing cmos battery, i have also held power button for 20 secs but...


Hi
Take the battery out and put the unit on the AC charger and try to start. If it starts your battery is bad. If it does not start then an IC has come away from the mother board. A reputable service tech will have a float device to reheat *********** board and resolder all the IC's

Aspire 5052 AWXMi cam not wrking


First thing you will want to do is see if it is activated and that the latest drivers are updated and downloaded for the cam.
You can go to start menu, control panel, performance & aintenance, system, hardware.
Now expand the list and look for your camera. From here you can update drivers and see if the device is enabled and working properly. You can always re-download the software for it.

Acer Aspire 5571 AWXMi Keyboard not working in 2003 Server


it might not be a problem with the software.

With the power out I would try taking the keyboard out and reseating the keyboard into its slot.

Turn on the laptop and press F2 to see if you can go into the BIOS. If you can then you know your keyboard is working. If you can't get into the BIOS then you know the keyboard is defective and will have to be replaced.

If you can get into the BIOS also make sure to get out and let the laptop reboot, if you cant do the ctrl alt del to get to the login screen then you know its a Operating system problem cause it works for the BIOS but not for the OS.

Hope this helps cause now you know how to tell if its either software or hardware related.

Keyboard problem


If they both stopped working at the same then it's probably a problem with the motherboard and not the keyboard or mouse per say.

Regardless we've got to try something, right?

I'd start with removing the keyboard and mouse from the device manager, then restart the computer (without the external mouse and keyboard)

If that doesn't work try updating the bios.

If the model you listed above is correct then the latest version for your laptop is located here:

Let me know what happens.

Best of luck!
