I have the acer 5100-3583. same problem. i took it to the geek squad at best buy and they diagnosed it to be a bad motherboard. acer no longer makes or sells that model of motherboard. i found one for $399 online. cheaper to buy new laptop. sounds like acer is not the brand to buy.

try to boot in safe mode. press F8 several times before bootup, then select safe mode. better yet safemode with networking. and did you try hooking external kb and mouse thru usb? if it proceeds, try checking online for chipset drivers and touchpad drivers at http://support.acer.com/us/en/drivers_download.aspx
COULD BE, BUT YOU CAN SAY THIS AFTER DOING ALL REPAIRS, CHECK YOUR DRIVERS IN YOUR SYSTEM, TOUCHPAD DRIVERS, AND OTHER RELATED DRIVERS, COULD BE SOME FILES ARE MISSING...THE BEST OPTION IS RELOAD THE WHOLE OPERATING SYSTEM AND CHECK.......THE DRIVERS FOR THIS MODEL CAN BE DOWNLOADED ON.. www.acer.com HOPE YOU WILL DO THIS AND MAKE IT WORK
i had the same problem. apart from keyboard and mousepad, all usb weren't working at all... except the pcmcia slot. so i bought a pcmcia usb card and plugged in the usb mouse and keyboard in those slots. it works! at least on my aspire 5100
Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off) Unplug the AC adaptor Remove the battery Plug in the AC adaptor Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen. Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.
