    I have the same problems with my spire 5100. the solutions you mentioned did not work. Could my motherboard be broken? Laptop is 14 months old.

    Do you have other solutions for me to try? After the problem occured I run the recovery cd and the problem seemed to disappear. But after next start up it did not work anymore. Please help.

    I have an Acer Aspire 5100 for some random reason the keyboard and touchpad will not respond. I tried starting without th battery and pushing FN + F7 and nothing happens. Off course the warranty is expired so I don't want to spend a fortune if this is a realitively easy fix. A suggestions are much appreciated.

    My notebook powers up but the KEYBOARD/TOUCHPAD/MOUSE ARE NOT RECOGNIZED.

    Notebook is just over a year old.

    I had a repair company look at it and there are NO APPARENT HARDWARE ISSUES.

Touch pad not working

Posted on Aug 30, 2008

Its the will start up fine but all functions stop....i had it looked at by the PC Guys in florida and thats whats casueing the problems...SOLUTION- its going to cost about $400 for a new take that money and invest it in something worthwile.

Posted on Aug 19, 2008

Okay, so I've had a similar problem over the past couple days and I figured it out. You probably have a dead battery, that isn't distributing enough power to the laptop keyboard or touchpad. I suggest you turn off your computer remove your battery and fasten the power source and turn it back on. This should fix your problem.

Try using an external keyboard,my keyboard went dead so that was my solution to the problem and all is well

Keyboard working fine, touchpad is not working at all. have a mouse plugged into usb port. plugs from keyboard are in correct ports.

You may have to install the driver software for your keyboard to enable the touchpad to function. Did the keyboard come with a special installation CD? If not, visit the Solidtek website to download the software there.

Daughter has similiar problem with keyboard on inspiron 1545

Dont just fall for their promises. If your external keyboard works fine, it is surely a manufacturing fault. Insist on a replacement or a service. Tell them your external keyboard works fine and make sure you sound like a techie. People at those companies think we are dummies. Good luck

Keyboard errors on Asus Eee pc 1000HD

sounds strange but ...

1 - check the mouse settings
2 - or ... turn-off the touchpad (under "touchpad settings")
3 - check/reset "keyboard settings"

see if you can narrow this down, with some detective work.

Dell Inspiron 600M Keyboard Replaced, now touchpad doesn't work

need to pick up the keyboard and make sure the ribbon cable to the mother board is fully seated. if it is. then the touchpad need to come out and clean it very carefully. the sugar and any sticky substances need to be clean off the machine, around the touchpad.
I hope the drink did not damage the touchpad.(it is heat senstive)
if it still don'e work aft reinstalled it. you need to call dell to get a replacement.

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
