    Yes I have the same acer and my keypad and touch mouse work fine until windows loads then they dont work... tryed fresh copy of... vista , xppro and xphome thinking that it might solve a conflict, but no good, they work great in the bios and most of the time in safe mode.. wierd ha. i think it was a windows update, but have fdisk and formated it 3 times... there must be a reson other than buying a decent laptop, its only been used about 20 times. attom2000@hotmail.com

    I just purchased it today (about 4 hours ago)...I made all the backup discs and then turned it off...when I turned it back on the mouse pad and keyboard no longer worked...it has never been used...is there a way to fix it or should I return it to the store?

    The mouse and keyboard don't work at all, and any USB devices don't work either. My friend says it is a southbridge problem but i am still looking for a way to fix this problem.

    My Acer Aspire 5150 has the dead keyboard, touchpad and USB problem. It will boot to the XP login, but that is it. Laptop was purchased in Dec 2006, so the warranty has expired. I added a 2GB mem stick in Dec 2008 to increase RAM to 3GB. Laptop ran fine until Jan 2009. Removing new mem stick does not help. Removing battery and powering on with AC adapter does not help. Removing battery and pressing Fn + F7 to reset hardware to default config does not help.

Dear friend,

this is your system board fault
this is due to southbridge (ich4) or ATI (ixp460) dry sold damage.
you should change this ic to fix this.
go to the best repairing center near you.

Cheaper solution is: Buy PCMCIA to USB card (max. 25$ @ eBay) & Buy Keyboard and Mouse with USB connection.
If you change mainboard (mare expensive) in 1-2 years, you have same problem ...

I have the acer 5100-3583. same problem. i took it to the geek squad at best buy and they diagnosed it to be a bad motherboard. acer no longer makes or sells that model of motherboard. i found one for $399 online. cheaper to buy new laptop. sounds like acer is not the brand to buy.

The keyboard and mouse will not work when I power on my acer aspire 5100 laptop. I have no control of the computer. How do I fix this?


Try pluging in a external keyboard and mouse see if that resolves the issue, if it does then use that keyboard and go into the comtrol panel and check if something is checked off in the keyboard icon.

Keyboard & mouse are dead


I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.
