Acer 5100 model bl51 bought used on e-bay, did not see note that keyboard not working. has ubuntu installed, cannot get past log-in. cannot get into set-up(no keyboard) usb keyboard/mouse do not work. have been on numerous threads, have tried fn+f6, fn+f7, ribbon cable to touchpad and keyboard, remove battery, tap on bottom, check all connections, etc...... b4 I buy anything, I wonder if anyone has solved this problem some other way. I noticed that it seems to be a VERY common problem, and am willing to get what is needed to fix prob., but do not like to just parts change. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanx

    It seems to me that a LOT of people are experiencing the same keyboard/mousepad/usb problem. Amazingly, ACER tech support page does not mention it at all, and there tehh help starts at $299.00. I wonder if I will by or recommend acer ever again? Hmmmm......

Sounds like a bad motherboard. If both the built-in keyboard & mouse as well as USB keyboard & mouse are not working, then it is a bad motherboard.

I'm afraid I've got a problem with the motherboard. Neither the internal keyboard, track pad or USB keyboard and USB mouse or working. Whe boting I cannot enter the setup mode via F2. Is it worthwhile...


I am sorry to be bearer of bad news, but you would be smarter to do 1 of 2 things here...

1) Return the laptop to ACER if you have a service warranty still...
2)Just buy a new one or a refurbished one (about $199.00) because with all the problems you said, to replace all those components would run over 5-750.00 plus labor.

Acer aspire 5100 BL51 windows 7 wireless driver


You will have to navigate this site; enter 'notebook', 'Aspire', and scroll to 5100; after that, you will have to choose 32 bit or 64 bit. That being said, Acer does not support Windows 7 yet-you can try the Vista drivers; more often than not they will work. One note-I cannot tell just from the info you supplied whether you have the Atheros or Broadcom chip-You should be able to determine that in Device Manager.

OS loads but keyboard, mouse pad and usb ports


was there any liquid damage? just to check the intregrity of the hardware i would maybe boot off of a linux distro just to check and see if it works that way. ubuntu is free and if you can choose to "try linux without installing" option just to verify. this will let you know if it is a hardware or software problem.

Dear reggi_soq,

If your laptop keyboard is not working and you need to press a key to boot from a CD, try installing an external keyboard (either USB preferably OS2).

Good luck!
