Acer Aspire 5100-3357 lost function of keyboard, touchpad and USB

hello, this has been one of the most reported problem with the 5100 model. i have 2 of them, and they have done the same thing! one i had 2 find and install a new mainboard-400 bucks! not very cost friendly. i did post a solution more than a year ago, but it is a work around that let me use the acer with the dead keyboard,touchpad,usb- you must buy a pcmcia usb card, it goes in the slot on the left side of the acer 5100. then a usb mouse and keyboard will work. (you can get this cardbus adapter cheap, as 400 bucks is 2 much. these pcmcia cardbus card come with 2 or 4 ports. this will let you use the pc, it has been a great solution for me and a lot of others, been in use over a year like this. acer is no help, unless you wish 2 spend a large amount of $. the one with the new board lasted about 8 months before the usb port stopped working for the second time, i then got a second cardbus usb card and have usb again. sorry for your problem.. good luck! do as i say and the acer will work again.( a problem model) just search for pcmcia usb cardbus you will find many 2 choose from- i picked the ones with the NEC chipset, as these are reliable! be well!

How do I hook up my toshiba satillite 4100xdvd to

If you want a wired connection to the internet via high-speed broadband (DSLor cable), you will need an Ethernet PC Card (also called PCMCIA or CardBus).

If you want a wireless connection, look for a compatible 802.11b or 802.11g PC Card. (This assumes you already have a wireless access point.)

Make sure the driver for the card is available for your operating system. Since this computer can only have up to 192MB of RAM, you might want to look into using a Linux OS.

The unit appears to have a built-in modem, but I am guessing you are not asking about a dial-up connection.)

To go wireless:

1.- check if your wireless device is working
2.- If not you have to turn it on
3.- Select your wireless network (control panel>>network connections>>wireless networks)
4.- Connect to the network (is the network is pass protected you will prompt for a password)

If above doesn't help, please describe better your issue

You need a PCMCIA Wireless adaptor, (this model you are getting has two slots that it will fit in) - and you must make sure you have a wireless router in your house to broadcast a wireless signal for it to recieve.

Acer & Win2k new Device PCMCIA MTD-0002

Try using this Unknown Devices program to identify the hardware. Then search the internet for the correct driver.

If this does not solve the problem then check with the computer manufacturer for a BIOS upgrade that could repair the problem.

The manufacturer's web site may also have documentation that identifies this unique problem.

Hi there, I am fairly sure that PCMCIA card will fit in it.

Have a look at this picture.

The slot you looking for is on the top right of the picture, there is a lil button u press in, it will pop out, push it again and it will eject a sort of blank card, this is make sure nothing accidentally gets into the laptop when a card is not in use.

Hope it helps

How can i get wireless connection on my notebook?

as in our chat session, you will need a pcmcia card, cardbus/type-II wireless card, preferably 802.11g with backwards compatibility. the cd that will come with it should install everything needed with minimal user interaction. you can try a usb wireless dongle, but i don't believe most work well with usb1.x. the good news is, although your laptop is old, the pcmcia card specs have not changed much, just make sure that whichever card you pick up has windows 98/98se drivers.

Network card

Any type of PCMCIA network card should work okay.
Go down to Staples, Best Buy or Office Depot and find
a decent PCMCIA network card.  You should be able to find
one for under $50
