Acer keyboard stopped working


Hi, If this is the 5 series then im afraid it is the motherboard, I have had plenty of these they are well known for it, this usually follows with the usb ports going down.
If not the 5 series IE... 5150 / 5100 then i would suspect a new keyboard is needed.

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.

Acer Aspire 5100 ; mouse freezes right after boot up


hi, yes it is a motherboard issue-i have 2 of those with same problem. new boards for that model are costly. however i found a work around-get a usb pcmcia card put it in the slot on the side-then plug your mouse or other usb devices and you should be ok! I did this a year ago and it runs like new! way cheaper than getting a new one. this is a big problem with these 5100 models. acer no help-other than selling you a new mainboard. this is the best way 2 make it work again. the pcmcia cards are cheap enough. and after that you can get a usb hub if you need more ports. good luck! and please rate this solution. and make sure 2 turn on the cardbus if not on allready. (in epower manager) this will work! reply if you need help! be well!

Touch pad stopped working


Did you turn the touch pad off accidentally? To turn it back on just hit (Fn) Function+F7

If that didn't work, go to Device Manager, Mice and other pointing devices, properties and check the status. If its OK, reinstall the driver, and power off the machine and reboot.

If there are no drivers visible during a reinstall, download them from the Acer website.

If all these did not work and your laptop is under warranty, have the manufacturer replace the touchpad.

Try getting a USB Mouse and plug it into one of your USB ports. This will also reduce wear and tear on your laptop :)
