Question about Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Notebook
My Acer 5672 is not working right. It seems to boot up fine. Then the boot screen appears with the mouse cursor in the middle, but the touchpad (synaptics touchpad) doesn't respond. The computer continues to boot and my desktop appears, but the keyboard doesn't respond either. Now normally if I turn the computer off manually by pressing the power button, it only takes about 4 seconds, in its present condition it takes anywhere from 20 seconds to a minute. I have system restored a couple of different times, but no success. Safe mode seems to work ok at times, but sometimes it will take anywhere from a couple minutes to 20 minutes to boot into safe mode. I have no idea what exactly I should do at this point.
If it works in safe mode, it is not a hardware issue but rather a software issue. You didn't mention what Operating System you are using (which version of Windows), but if you go to msconfig and run a selective startup, eliminating things that you don't need, you might be able to track down the offending item.

If your laptop is under warrant (or even if it isnt) you should take it into a repair shop or to geek squad at best buy.
they are really good about fixing laptops for an ok price
it sounds like a hardware issue
possible something shorting out or fried or loose
