    tried all that - no dice after several hard reboots - cant go very far w/o a keyboard or touchpad

  • Steephill Feb 29, 2008

    my take on things so far is that it is a hardware issue and therefore under warantee - not that comforting since i had just set my computer up (software, email, favorites and files) after buying it 2 mo ago.

Lenovo Touch pad Stopped working


If you're positive you didn't unplug or rip anything while installing new USB ports, trying checking/updating or rolling back the drivers for the touch pad. Installing new USB ports could have mis-configured something and disabled or modified your drivers for the touch pad.

Keyboard and touchpad not working on macbook a1181 but power botton work fine


I've found the same problem - keyboard, touchpad and mouse buttons not responsive - and was almost ordering a new KB/touchpad replacement, thinking they were bad. I searched the internet and found that people had already done that with negative results. Studying the KB/touchpad circuit board I found that the controller was a USB device. So I had an idea, why not test it using one external USB port. I soldered the proper wires to a USB plug and connected it to a side USB port and, voil?!, it worked. Then, I removed 2 inductors from the original D+ and D- lines to isolate the KB/touchpad connector and soldered 2 pieces of wire to one of the side USB ports - in sequence, I covered that port with a small aluminum plate to avoid it being used for another device. Reassembled the computer and everything is working fine, back to normal (with one less USB port, of course).

Keyboard working fine, touchpad is not working at all. have a mouse plugged into usb port. plugs from keyboard are in correct ports.


You may have to install the driver software for your keyboard to enable the touchpad to function. Did the keyboard come with a special installation CD? If not, visit the Solidtek website to download the software there.

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!

If you have got a usb mouse plug it into your computer then go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and go to pointing devices. Right click on the + sign next to keyboard and touchpad, click on uninstall. Then reboot your machine, take the usb mouse out. Windows will reload the correct drivers for the keyboard and touchpad as new hardware and your problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working


As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
