Question about Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Notebook

Computer not responding at bootup

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.

    Hmm, hadn't thought about that. That might be a good idea. I am fairly certain that it isn't under warranty. I will see if anything turns up... thanks.

    Hi, my acer aspire 5672 just started doing the same thing. Boots fine but no mouse or keyboard, they do work in safe mode. I even got it to work once with a usb mouse. Tried restore and, stop all startup programs to no avail. Have you fixed yours?

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

THE CURSOR IS NOT DISPLAYED ON THE SCREEN OPERATING SYSTEM: WINDOWS 8.1 PRO PRODUCT :ACER ASPIRE ES1-512


the proposed solution is to edit one registry item. Here is how you do it:
1) From the desktop right-click on the start icon and then click 'Run'

2) In the Run box type in 'regedit' without the quote marks and click OK

3) this will open Windows Registry Editor, now navigate to this path by clicking on the folders in the left hand panel: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

4) Once you have opened the system folder you should look down the list that appears in the main box to the right of the panel until you find an entry called EnableCursorSupression double click this entry

5) This will bring up a box that has a value data of 1. Change this to 0 and click OK

6)Close the registry Editor and restart your computer
Let us know if this solution Works, Thanks,

How can i make my cursor respond using the inbuilt touch . it stopped and i have to use mouse


You have to reload the software and the drivers for the touch pad. Often the name of the drivers and the program that runs the touch screen may not seem apparent. If you have the disks that came with the computer, start with the drivers and utilities disk and re-install all driver files. That should get the hardware listed. you should also check your device manager (start button, right click computer, click properties, click on hardware tab and then click on device manager) for any yellow or red icons. The device manager will show you on a tree, all the hardware working on your computer.

I have no keyboard input on my Acer 5672 when Windows XP boots in normal mode. Keyboard words fine in safe mode.


Suggest you, in Safe Mode, attempt to recover your computer's Operating System from the disks provided with your computer. Place the disk into the drive and reboot. The computer SHOULD boot from the DVD and restore your Operating System.

Slow 5 MINS TO BOOT FROM FACTORY DEFAULT?


I would suggest booting into Safe Mode with networking (do this by pressing F8 during boot. Just tap it every few seconds until you get the OS selection menu). Once you enter Safe Mode, go to www.gmer.net and download their removal tool. You may have what's called a Rootkit trojan. Those can stay in your system's memory even after a factory default reset.

Acer laptop booting only if battery removed and on main power


try disabling ACPI (Advanced Configuration Power Interface) in BIOS screen, if you have that option. Something does not agree with Windows control of all ACPI devices...could be the modem or ethernet network. Also, if no success, try disabling "allow this device to wake computer" for either (or both) the modem or ethernet network devices in control panel-system devices option screen.

its really important you tell us what menu comes up it will help heaps. now...

your computer is not initialising correclty this could be becuse of a hardware or driver conflict, did you install hardware or open the computer recenlty?

bootup the computer in safe mode or try last known good configuration... this should solve the problem as it sounds like purely a software problem.

goodluck.
