Acer Aspire 5050-5430 USB ports stopped working

Hi. My 4 month old Acer Aspire 5050-5430 had been working perfectly. However, as of several weeks ago, it does not recognize any device connected to a USB port (mouse / keyboard / printer). The ports seem powered as my USB light works on all ports. I would appreciate your support on this matter.

Hi,
I hope i can help resolve your problem for you.
this may be a problem relating to your system device driver files.
Try This:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager. at the bottom of the page you will see USB.
If you have any yellow symbols ( exclamation Marks ) then the driver has been corrupted, or installed incorrectly.
if you have a system restore disk. this may solve the problem for you. or recovery cd.
If you require further assistance, please ask.

Mike @ compurepair.

Acer Aspire 5100-3357 lost function of keyboard, touchpad and USB


hello, this has been one of the most reported problem with the 5100 model. i have 2 of them, and they have done the same thing! one i had 2 find and install a new mainboard-400 bucks! not very cost friendly. i did post a solution more than a year ago, but it is a work around that let me use the acer with the dead keyboard,touchpad,usb- you must buy a pcmcia usb card, it goes in the slot on the left side of the acer 5100. then a usb mouse and keyboard will work. (you can get this cardbus adapter cheap, as 400 bucks is 2 much. these pcmcia cardbus card come with 2 or 4 ports. this will let you use the pc, it has been a great solution for me and a lot of others, been in use over a year like this. acer is no help, unless you wish 2 spend a large amount of $. the one with the new board lasted about 8 months before the usb port stopped working for the second time, i then got a second cardbus usb card and have usb again. sorry for your problem.. good luck! do as i say and the acer will work again.( a problem model) just search for pcmcia usb cardbus you will find many 2 choose from- i picked the ones with the NEC chipset, as these are reliable! be well!

Camera disappears from Acer Aspire 5630 notebook


Hi! Your built in camera is just like ordinary camera that you plug into usb ports available. The only difference is that your built in cam is directly plugged into a dedicated usb slot in the motherboard. Most of the times the cable of the camera passes thru the hinges of the LCD which is prone to damamge due to opening and closing motion you do on your LCD or Laptop cover.

What could have happened was that the tiny cables that connects your cam to the board is now slightly aor if not severely damaged. unless you are a novice, I suggest you really have to bring it in for repair before it causes more harm to your laptop.
