Acer :: Aspire 5100 Touchpad Keyboard Not Working

Jun 23, 2008

My touchpad and keyboard quit working all of a sudden. I tried to reboot and I can't select the safe mode choice cause the arrow keys on the keyboard don't work. Some people suggested that I remove the battery and reboot, and again nothing.

Acer :: Aspire One Touchpad Use With Keyboard

Jul 22, 2009

My Acer Aspire One, which I love, does one thing that drives me NUTS! The touchpad, mainly noticed in games (FPS are the most detectable), doesn't respond while pressing keys... IE, I press "W" to run forward, and the touchpad doesn't work simultaniously... I can run, or look around, but not both at the same time... why is that? No other touchpad in a laptop I've ever used had the limitaion? And, when using an external mouse, the mouse works great, meaning I can move around pressing keys on the keyboard all while looking around. It just gets annoying having to stop, look around, then move, stop, look around, move, etc.

Is this a driver problem or a hardware problem? Even the EEE Pc that I use to have didn't do this, so why the new Acer? Curious, and no idea how to fix it.... Maybe it's even a setting somewhere I'm unaware of...

Acer :: 5100 Touchpad Dead

Mar 7, 2009

I have an Acer 5100 and the touch pad has died ( including all the buttons ). Was perfect one day , turned it on the next day and it was dead. I'm surviving on an old IBM mouse plugged into USB port at present.

Have checked the mouse properties and it says it is working properly ( which it obviously isn't ) . Have uninstalled and re-installed including checking for latest driver on line . The mouse properties still tell me everything is working properly .

Acer :: Timeline Keyboard NOT Working In BIOS, Working In The OS

Dec 25, 2009

I have a timeline 4810T which has worked lovely since September, but now I have a weird problem with it: The keyboard won't work until the operating system is loaded. I can't access the bios (press the F2 key but nothing happens), neither select my OS on the Grub menu as the arrow keys doesn't work, all I can do is wait for the 10 seconds timer, then Ubuntu launches, then I can login without problems and all the keys work perfectly.

To give more details, maybe some keys do actually work before the os boot, because when I'm on the grub menu, some keys manage to stop the timer, but unfortunately I can't change the OS or accept the selection, then I have to reboot and wait for the timer to go back to 0 for itself and ubuntu loads.

I'm running the newest BIOS, updated some days ago but didn't had the problem since today.

I just got the new acer 5740-6491 model and the alps touchpad (multi-touch) does not work well.

When in use the cursor jumps around the screen very erratically.

Ive tried reinstalling the driver and using the synaptics driver as well. Neither work.

Does anyone have support in this issue? Basically all I want is to scroll on the touchpad and doubleclick.

Acer :: 5920g Touchpad Stopped Working

Nov 17, 2008

about 2 months ago i bought an Acer 5920G, a week or so ago suddenly the touchpad stopped working, i dont recall how it happened, i think i just booted Windows Vista as i usually do and the touchpad didnt work when i tried to click my user name so i could enter my password to logon.

I thought maybe the driver had gone bad so i rebooted and booted Windows XP( on a different partition) and in windows xp the touchpad also didnt work anymore.

Is this a hardware failure? Or are there other possibilities? I tried removing the driver and reinstalling, but it still didnt work.

Acer :: Touchpad (mouse) Suddenly Not Working On 8930G

Feb 6, 2010

I turned laptop on today and the touchpad is just not working. Has this happened to anyone else? I looked for drivers but only found vista ones which I installed but still not working. Thankfully I have a bluetooth mouse but it is not that good and I like to use the touchpad.

Using windows 7 32 bit. I might install the OS again but does this sound like a hardware failure?

Acer :: 8940G's Touchpad Stops Working When Any Key Is Pressed

Nov 13, 2009

Has anyone experienced a problem with Acer notebooks where when the user presses any key on the keyboard, the touchpad gets disabled? The 8940G we are reviewing has this problem and I have never seen this happen before. When the touchpad stops functioning the little Synaptics status thing on the taskbar still shows the sensitivity blob when you finger presses the touchpad. This tells me it is still working but something else is interfering.

I have looked around the Synaptics menu for anything relating to this feature and found nothing. I disabled the "hide cursor when typing" feature in Windows already and that didnt fix it.

Acer :: Keyboard/Touchpad Doesn't Respond When Booting

Jan 5, 2008

I've got an acer aspire 5672 and I can't get passed my login screen anymore. The keyboard and touchpad do not respond.

I tried in safe mode and there they do.
There was one time where they did respond but then they stopped right after loggin in.

The system seems to keep running though, as the cursor blinks etc, it's just that I cannot do anything.

As it does work in safe mode, it must be a software thing, no?

Acer :: Touchpad/Keyboard Dead After SP1 Update On Vista Business

Nov 19, 2008

I have an ACER Aspire 5670. Recently i installed windows vista business.

From the day i installed vista my battery appears to be broken.

Ok let's say battery cells were destroyed (Fedora installed on the same system report that battery may be dammaged)-So it may be destroyed in a couple of hours.

The second weird thing is that it persists not to recognize one device. In the device manager it has a hardware ID: ACPISMCB000

Third weird story. Today my notebook prompted that there was SP1 update available. I installed it (in 3 phases - 2together at shutdown and 1 after restart)

After SP update my keyboard stopped working - same thing with touchpad. I uninstalled SP1, uninstalled synaptics driver and re-installed it - same thing.

In a forum somewhere i read that battery causes these problems. I took battery off and now i am writing this message from my notebook's keybord ... touchpad still dead...

both keyboard and touchpad work perfectly in Fedora 9 and that usb mouse/keyboard work perfect too in Vista.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 And The AMD RM-70 CPU

May 26, 2009

I wanted to upgrade my processor on my Aspire 5100 from the so so tl-50 to the RM-70. I am wondering if anyone else has tried this and if so, did you have any problems installing. from what I have researched, AMD is using the same bios for the the Turion processors and the RM-70 seems to be the one that uses the same wattage range, socket and power consumption.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 CPU Spikes

Jun 10, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 AMD 62x dualcore tk-53 i think its at like 1.7ghz, it came with Vista, I put XP back on it, came with 1gb of ram I upgraded to 4gb hoping it would run fine. To get to the point. When I first got the computer it ran great, however now sometime with it has brought it to this annoying spike in my CPU. I've tried everything I could to keep it down, but it spikes over 100% randomly and at the worst times. I've ran Process Explorer and watched when it spiked, nothing unusual. I've watched my task manager, nothing unusual. I've defraged, ran virus scans, disabled my virus protection, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, reformated, restarted, any and everything I could. I bought a stand for the laptop and a fan so it doesnt overheat. I've check my power settings, my page file remains the same around 555 on average even during the spikes.

But when I plug my wifes dell laptop or my desktop into the same connection theres no lag at all. Would this have anything to do with my hard drive?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Keyboard Versus Acer Aspire One Keyboard

Feb 24, 2009

I currently have an AA1 and am curious to those who tried typing on both the HP Mini and the AA1 keyboards and noticed a difference. I believe the HP's keyboard is 92% and the AA1's is 89% I believe. It feels "okay" to type on, obviously not the best due to its size compared to a normal keyboard, but am wondering if the HP's is worth the price jump (paid 300 for mine).

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Overheating Then Shutting Down

Dec 29, 2008

I think that it is an overheating problem considering my laptop (ONLY recently) seems to be getting very hot, to the point it needs to shut down. But this is the strange thing:

I had Windows Vista installed on this laptop (Acer Aspire 5100) earlier, and my battery almost never heated up to the point it needed to shut down, or even heat up to an extreme level.... But now that I have downgraded to Windows XP SP2, it seems to shut down MUCH more often. But I did find one thing of concern. Around the same time my laptop started shutting down, I installed an application called 'Game Speed Changer' and that whenever I had used it, it slowed my computer down immensely, and then when I went to close it, the BSOD would appear. Every time.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Graphics Card RAM

May 13, 2009

I purchased an Acer Aspire 5100 using it mostly for busines and writing. Now, I'd like to watch some videos, have an webcam, and play games, however, the integrated video card handles none of this well. It's slow and will sputter on something as simple as a short 60 second video clip.

I maxed out the 4GB Ram, thinking that Vista was using too much but it did not help.

Then I discovered this:

Quote:

For gaming, the graphics speed is enhanced care of the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100graphics card, with 128 MB dedicated memory. The card can tap into an additional 384 MB from shared system memory, for a total of 512 MB.

I did some research and found that I could go into the BIOS and change the memory from 128 to 512. I tried it, found the setting, changed it, and thought I'd find success. However, Vista somehow read these actions as an error and a failure to start, and would not start........................

Acer :: ERecovery On Aspire 5100 Laptop

Jan 2, 2009

Im trying to do a factory restore using the Acer eRecovery on Aspire 5100 laptop, which I set up using their wizard, input the password, ran from Vista, it has rebooted and is showing the Windows XP logo and the moving "progress" bar thing. However, after about 3 mins, the bar stops moving and nothing else happens, its been like that for ages now. Resetting the power starts it up and gets to the same point and stops again. I have used it before without problems, the hidden partition was there before I started (I checked). Now I cant do anything with the laptop at all! Can anyone suggest what I can do now? I didn't ever get round to making DVD backup disks. The machine is also 2 years old, and I dont want to spend a fortune on Acer's 50p per min customer service, considering they should've given me a boot disk with the machine in the first place. I only wanted to restore it as for no apparent reason all my USB devices stopped being recognized by vista.

Acer :: Reducing Heat On ASpire 5100

Jan 30, 2009

I have been having some trouble with speed on this computer and I'm quite sure its not a connection problem and its a temperature problem. Lately I have been hearing some strange noises coming out of it and I do feel a lot of heat on it's underside. Unfortunately it only has one vent on the side and the rest are at the bottom. I will admit it is not the the best well kept laptop ever, for once it's never seen a compressed air can seen I took it out it's box. I did find this tutorial online for reducing the heat but I decided to post it here first to see what you guys thought about it boefore I went on with it.

I gotta say I never opened up a laptop before but that doesn't mean I'm computer illiterate or am shy about doing it. I do realize its a tutorial for a fujitsu and not an Acer. Well the bottom line is, what can I do to reduse the temperature? Can I attempt this [url]? and if so, are there any differences I shoould be aware about?
