Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have a laptop that is Acer Aspire 3640. I already used it for one year but, my laptop have some problems now. when i start my computer, my devices such as keyboard, touch pad mouse, and my usb hub did not operating. Meanwhile my window only reach until at login screen. what are the problems actually? plz help me.
It sounds viruss related to me too.
Age and time seems to have a toll on any mobile systems.
Format it and start again,
You can repair the install if you have a XP install disk.
If you have no disk ,another option is to remove the drive and format it on a second machine,
Next set is to fit back into your machine and make sure to do your Windows SP2 updates so all the devices work correctly.
I have found SP3 was not a happy camper so I opted not to install this update as other machines I have come into contact with have had bad issues,SP3 was supposed to be a Bug Fix Patch but why fix something when it works,Funny that aye.
Hope this helps ,Please let me know of the outcome thanks

Try to boot into "Safe Mode" and run a full virus scan with your (hopefully updated) AV program and see if that fixes it. Press the F8 key on boot to get to the options screen that will allow you to choose "Safe Mode" then your Operating System and click enter then yes on the pop up then if you do make it to your desktop in safe mode you'll know it.
Any windows OS running for a year without any maintenance would probably hang on you even without a virus. IMHO
So you may end up having to format the HD and reinstall your OS (possibly from a partition if you didn't get a disk).
