I have a Acer-AM5641-E5650A desktop and loaded Ubuntu Linux, it comes up but not able to use keyboard or mouse. I suspect I need drivers for USB devices, can you point me to a source and part number/version.

There are know issues with USB devices and Ubuntu 9.10. Try version 8.04 or 8.10.

It is quite difficult to install anything without mouse and keyboard.
try to use PS2 mouse or keyboard, it would have to work just fine, after that connect your USB devices, and it just might load the drivers need by it self

Hello experts, my Acer Aspire 3050 has a malfunction on the laptop keyboard/touchpad. After power-up, at a certain point the cursor stops moving (the touchpad doesn't have any effect), and I cannot enter...


1) Is there any accidental liquid or water damage on the keyboard, if there is possibly the keyboard and track-pad fails cause it may have affected the circuitry in it.

2) See if you can access the BIOS and try to reset to factory/default settings. Save and exit. May resolve the trackpad and keyboard issue. From the BIOS you can individually disable stuff built into laptops like USB, card reader, etc. At banks and businesses, they usually disable USB controller cause you know work policy.

3) If you want to know if its hardware or software issue. Suggest you try with Linux distro like Ubuntu. Burn to a disc or make a external USB pen drive and boot from that. If the keyboard and mouse work in Ubuntu, then its a software issue. If it still doesn't work, then its hardware issue. You don't need to install Ubuntu, you can run it without installing it. Although you can install Ubuntu alongside Windows if you want to.

4) Sometimes driver issue, use the manufacturer driver, or check windows updates for the drivers. At this point i would suggest getting an external USB mouse and keyboard just to do this.

OS loads but keyboard, mouse pad and usb ports


was there any liquid damage? just to check the intregrity of the hardware i would maybe boot off of a linux distro just to check and see if it works that way. ubuntu is free and if you can choose to "try linux without installing" option just to verify. this will let you know if it is a hardware or software problem.

Dead keyboard and touchpad at login prompt


Try downloading ubuntu linux live cd. You can boot directly into linux without installing it. See if your keyboard and touchpad work in there. If not then it is a hardware problem. If it does work you may want to consider backing up your files and reinstalling windows.

You might have a usb keyboard requiring a usb 2.0 driver. If no other usb device has worked with xp since you replaced your hard drive, that could be the point of failure.

Make sure you have installed windows xp service pack 2 to get the usb 2.0 driver.

Please tell me if it worked. Thanks.

USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
