Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

2 Answers

Keyboard and Mouse completely unresponsive

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 PC notebook which worked fine with no issues until just recently. We restarted the computer for some reason and all the sudden the keyboard and mousepad were unresponsive. We had recently purchased MP3 players for our kids and had one plugged into a USB port to charge it. I find it hard to believe that this could have hurt the computer, but it is ironic that shortly after plugging that in, the computer died.

Hmm have you tried an external usb keyboard ? if it works all you need to do is restore your computer to a previous date , one in which they were working :)


If not you will need to take your computer in to a profession for them to reset and flash your board, and if that doesnt work you will require replacement parts..

BTW plugging the mp3 player into the usb should not have cause that issue :)

Try pluging in a external keyboard and mouse see if that resolves the issue, if it does then use that keyboard and go into the comtrol panel and check if something is checked off in the keyboard icon.

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.

Keyboard and mouse stopped working


I would check the Flex cable's first. If keyboard is not working sometimes this does not allow the pad to work. Here is one of the sites I use for repairs. Good luck and have a good day.
