Re: acer aspire 5100 keyboard does not type characters
There is a small ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard inside. It is very likely that the ribbon cable has become loose enough to no longer make contact. If you send me the model of your computer, I could probably find you a diagram of pictures to guide you through taking the keyboard out of your laptop to re-seat the cable.

Try booting your computer from CD ROM with the OS CD/DVD already inserted and when prompted just try repair. If that does not work re-install the same on the same 'partition' assuming it to be C by deleting the the windows system files only. While doing so keep the internet on and immediately after the basic version of the OS is installed and the m/c boots-up for the first time, go to the official website and download the latest drivers for every component like toch-pad, keypad, display, audio, etc.(i.e. almost all the drivers)
