SOURCE: Acer 5100 keyboard and mouse will not work. No

Hello there, this is usually caused by one of three things.

Either something was just plugged in (usually USB) that is interfering that you can just unplug

The computer has locked up for another reason (more in a sec.)

Mainboard could possibly be bad / going bad =(

To test if the computer itself is locked up try plugging in an external USB mouse or keyboard to see if you can get that to work. If it does then that means the keyboard and mouse built in are failing, which again basically means the mainboard is failing.

Hopefully it will be that the computer is completely locked up so when you plug in an external usb mouse or whatever it won't respond. That's easiest to fix.

Please let me know

How do i turn on my wireless keyboard

1 Follow the steps mentiond below:
Leave your current wired keyboard plugged into the computer. Many computers will cease to function if their keyboard is removed.
Make sure that the computer is on and is functioning properly.
Plug the USB wireless adapter of the wireless keyboard into a USB port on your computer. If you don't have a USB port, then your computer is probably too old and likely won't support a wireless keyboard.
Make sure that there are batteries in your wireless keyboard. Oftentimes, the consumer is responsible for putting the batteries in, and they don't come with the keyboard when it's purchased.
Turn the power on for your wireless keyboard. The method of doing this varies depending on the model you've purchased, but the power switch/button is generally located on the bottom of the wireless keyboard.
Wait for the keyboard to download it's driver software. If you don't have a connection to the Internet, use the software that was included with your wireless keyboard to install the driver manually.
Use the wireless keyboard exactly as you would a wired keyboard.

It seems the new macbook pro does not support the firewire connector. Is there a different wire available? It looks like the macbook pro has a firewire connection but it is much smaller than the original...

The problem lies in your cable!

The new macbook pro still uses firewire and will be compatable with your drive. It just uses a 4-pin instead of a 6-pin connector. You can get an adapter or new cable that goes from 6 to 4-pins.

They did take away firewire from the new line of plain macbooks though (shakes fist at steve jobs)

How to connect the Microsoft Wired Keyboard 500 to the Acer Aspire One Computer? I've tried using a ps/2 to USB adapter & the acer computer says it does not recognize the device.

ok this is slightly a common problem i come across this situation quite easily, don't worry that the problem is with your usb adapter, its that the keyboard or acer does not have the software needed to run it properly if the keyboard came with a cd get a external cd player and download the software to the computer, but if it did not come with a cd *note: i assumed you have windows xp if you do not please find a way to do this with a different OS* go to control panel, add hardware then follow the instuctions there that should help you install the keyboard so you can use it, allthough if your keyboard is so old it has a ps/2 port i sugest getting a new keyboard with usb plug and use/play they are more user freindly and you will never have this type of problem again.

My MacBook don't start. Is the power button? Is any password to solve this?

A password would not prevent your Macbook from starting, so I don't think that is the issue.

There are several variables to consider when it comes to power issues with an Apple Macbook.
For one, is your battery charged where you can test it without the MagSafe adapter, to see if the Macbook will start up?
• Also, is the MagSafe Adapter itself, not frayed or damaged, is free of debris and is able to connect securely to your Macbook?

If you have checked both of these sources for powering up your Macbook and you still cannot turn your Macbook on, then that is a hardware issue.

Sources of hardware issues with your model of Apple portable notebooks are:
* The Power supply: (source of power to the main logic board in the Macbook, and connects to the MagSafe port which of course connects the MagSafe adapter into a external power source - i.e: "a wall power socket")

* The Main Logic board: the main board in your Macbook which contains all processors, RAM, audio & video ports, ethernet, USB and other ports and components-including the Power Supply.

* RAM- If your RAM (Memory) goes bad, this can also impact the start up of your Macbook
A good way to test and see if you can start your Macbook up is to try this procedure below:

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the
computer's battery.

• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds
and then release the button.

• Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.

• Press the power button to restart the computer

**IF you cannot get you Macbook powered up using this SMC Reset, that means you will need to take your Macbook in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or Apple-authorized service center to have a diagnostics performed on your Macbook.

I am sure this will help guide you in the right direction toward address this issue.
Let me know if you have more questions regarding this issue.
