USB not working


If none of your USB ports work, there could be a problem with your USB controllers. Uninstall the USB controllers via Control Panel - System ... and reboot your laptop. They will reinstall upon bootup. Good luck.

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!

if the mouse and usb ports aren't working either, then the motherboard is faulty. Hope you have warranty, get it repaired.

I have one of those laptops here with the same fault.

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/

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

Keyboard keep taking ma cursor back i ve have made fresh installations but it still wont work i even installed new bios tried new mouse and keybaord but it still wont work.i think acer really is bad


if the cursor is moving by itself off the screen then it is likely that the mouse pad is bad or needs reseated ,
remove the keyboard and re-seat or disconnect the mouse pad.

ACER 5100 KEYBOURD AND MOUSE AND USB NOT WORKING


hmmmm..now that's interesting...usually that's a symptom of the touchpad, not being connected to the motherboard. The way to get to that is to remove the keyboard, and then check the small connector from palmrest to the main board...

got backup for your Acer?
