Dear friend.. the same happened to a customer's laptop.
I suggest you do the following:
First, try to scan your harddrive for viruses in another computer (you can buy a cheap 2.5" USB enclosure for your drive and use it as an USB drive). Once you do that, clean from viruses.
Next step is reinstall the disk and boot the machie again.
If it's a virus problem -as it happened to me- the BIOS block itself and nothing responds, so, you'll have to cheat BIOS.
Plug a flashdrive (any kind) and wait to windows recognizes and installs it. Once it's done unplug it and plug a USB keyboard and/or mouse and wait. Once you have control power off the system normally (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO UNBLOCK THE BIOS).
Next time you power on your computer, keyboard and mouse should work great.
Hope it helps.
Greetings, Pablo.

PD: One advice... you will probably have to reinstall windows. And finally try linux... this won't happen with it.

Reinstalling apps:
1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Reinstall apps and drivers" - look for hardware drivers that you
need. Click "install now"

Unresponsive keyboard + mouse pad


I guess you have a mechanical problem, sounds like the mother board have some issues on starting all devices.

If you could use keyboard to go in the bios, and see the screen, if would be the OS that need to be repaired.
