Aspire E1-571 keyboard not working

The keyboard on my laptop is not working, it happened around a week ago, even the on screen keyboard does not type anything, is there a keyboard lock thing that I have activated? Neither the physical or on screen keyboards are working, the touchpad is fine, but the keyboards are not, I cannot even get into the laptop because there is a password on the machine

Sounds like one of the Accessibility/Ease of Access options got turned on by accident.

In the Control Panel section choose: Change how the keyboard works.
Look at the FilterAspire E1-571 keyboard not working - icon1.png Keys option. Is it checked ON? If so, that's probably the cause of your problem.
I think if you uncheck Filtericon1.png Keys your keyboard will go back to normal.
Or try rebooting with an external usb keyboard.

    The rebooting with an external keyboard is what I also would suggest.

    Is it somehow still possible to enter your bios with your keyboard? Perhaps you can search there for settings of your keyboard.

SOURCE: mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work

One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5100-3357 lost function of keyboard, touchpad and USB

hello, this has been one of the most reported problem with the 5100 model. i have 2 of them, and they have done the same thing! one i had 2 find and install a new mainboard-400 bucks! not very cost friendly. i did post a solution more than a year ago, but it is a work around that let me use the acer with the dead keyboard,touchpad,usb- you must buy a pcmcia usb card, it goes in the slot on the left side of the acer 5100. then a usb mouse and keyboard will work. (you can get this cardbus adapter cheap, as 400 bucks is 2 much. these pcmcia cardbus card come with 2 or 4 ports. this will let you use the pc, it has been a great solution for me and a lot of others, been in use over a year like this. acer is no help, unless you wish 2 spend a large amount of $. the one with the new board lasted about 8 months before the usb port stopped working for the second time, i then got a second cardbus usb card and have usb again. sorry for your problem.. good luck! do as i say and the acer will work again.( a problem model) just search for pcmcia usb cardbus you will find many 2 choose from- i picked the ones with the NEC chipset, as these are reliable! be well!

Coffee on key board


Hey,

You need to replace the keyboard. Turn the laptop off. Dry the keyboard. fully. Hopefully the coffee is only on the keyboard and there wasn't enough coffee to get inside the computer.

So if after drying the keyboard completely it still doesn't function.
You need to get a replacement keyboard.

I just bought one from ebay few weeks ago www.ebay.com see if you can find one for your model.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,

First Things first. Un-install the software that you installed immediately as while you are Internet Banking a pop-up is a security threat and It is not a security pop up mind it.

Regarding the keyboard missing the letters. Please follow the following :

In control Panel go to Keyboard settings and move the repeat delay & repeat rate to a slower setting.

2nd Option

open a Word processor and type in ABC to Z & All the combinations of the same & special characters using shift. Repeat this 2-3 times. If same letters are missing it means that the keyboard has a problem and needs disassembly & cleaning.

Keyboard & mouse are dead


I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.
