Question about Acer Aspire T120 PC Desktop

USB pots not functioning

Hi mewms,

I have an Acer Aspire T120E. There are 2 USB ports on the front which I used to use regularly, following a problem with a WORM, which now seems to have been flushed out, the USB ports do not work. The ports at the back seem to be ok. Can you tell me what happened to them and how to get them working again.
I didn't get an OS disc with the computer but I have a disc that I burned as per instructions but I don't get a good feeling from it. I'm desperately hoping that you can help me. Regards, Julie

Generally there can be multiple reasons the usb do not function.

  1. the usb front hub is no longer working
  2. the chip set drivers need to be updated
  3. a virus/worm/trojan

  • download everesthome and google the northbridge chipset and download any updates.

My acer aspire 5733Z-4851 donot read usb


That could be a problem with the USB connection on your motherboard. This is not a big issue, if you can you just open up your CPU and locate the USB connection on the motherboard. It is not clear to me whether it is the USB ports from the front panel or it is the USB ports that are on-board (usually found at the back). If it is the USB ports from the back, the one built - in on the board, then the BIOS has to be configured again to enable Plug and Play attributes. If the ports are from front then you need to follow the cable that connects the usb port to the mother board. Disconnect and reconnect. Or check whether it is actually connected to the right port on the motherboard. Usually it is written on the motherboard.

Source not found I am using an Acer Aspire One


Make sure you are using ports other than the USB port. Vivitek Service indicates that at least some of their projectors do not use the USB port for input. "The USB port is not in input port. This is used for service only. Please use another input port such as RGB input. Regards, Vivitek Customer Service

Hope this helps.

How to do system recovery on aspire one


Hi you should be able to do the following, if not you will need an external CD drive & recovery disk.


1. Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.

2. Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.

3. Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."

4. Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.

5. Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.

6. Connect the external USB device to your Acer Aspire One and transfer the data you saved earlier back to the netbook.

Warning:
It is possible to delete the hard drive partition that has the recovery tool.

If your Acer Aspire One no longer has the recovery partition, you will need
to acquire an external USB DVD drive and then contact Acer for a recovery DVD.
Connect the USB drive to the netbook's USB port and then insert the recovery DVD in the drive.

Hope this helps.

At the front of computer, the 2 usb are not working


Hello

If you have recently formatted or opened your case, this might just be a case of some wires not pluged in correctly, or chipset drivers not installed. Try installing chipset drivers again, if that does not work open your case and trace the wires back from the front panel and plug them out and back in again. Really hope this can help you.Please rate this.

Best regards

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!
