Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook ?

Keyboard tounc screen usb not working

\015 When I boot the 3100 the keypad will not respond. I cannot enter setup or acess the safe mode option screen using the keypad. When the system get to the windows login screen I cant use the keys or touhch pad to select a user or shut down. \015\012If I put the computer in to standby by depressing the toggle (screen closed) I can then wake the it back up using any key. \015\012I've tried to add a USB mouse but, on all 3 ports it only flashes for an instant when I plug it in then goes out and won't function.\015\012I suspect a Bois issue becaues windows will wake from standby using any key but the computer does not recognize the the keys during post.\015\012I've been search the web trying to find out if there is a jumper setting on the motherboard to reset the BIOS but have not even been able to discover the type of motherboard used.\015\012If anyone has any sugestions they would be greatly appreciated.\015\012RC\015

I have this same model and bought from tigerdirect around Nov 06. I started having problems with mine around the first of Feb.08. As you noticed it is a few months out of warranty. My keyboard and touchpad will not respond during boot up. I too can not get into bios. I have unsoldered CMOS battery and resolderer and still no response. I have noticed that Acer has a hidden Active X file in system32 that may be an interactive file on how the system performs. I do not know anyone that had an Acer for more than 2 years. I think Acer has included a bug in their systems to corrupt to function of the motherboard. I am always working on computers and I have never seen this happen to see many people on these forums online. I am researching Acer computer now and will probably find the problem. My usb mouse lights up but do not move the mouse what so ever. I would recommend anyone not to buy. Once out of warranty the only voice you will hear before speaking to Tech Support is Credit card # and 2 dollars an hour charge and that may not help. I really believe that Acers lauch manager holds the info I need because there was an activeX file call lunch.dll that they have recently added a patch.
The batteries on these things are usually located under the wireless card. In my case as well as I am sure his, this is soldered to the board. I can unsolder without a problem but dont want to unless I know for sure this will do the trick. Personally I am working on the Aspire 5100 w/ media edition. It stops at Setup is starting windows. Microsoft gives a floppy startup download but without the USB's responding I cannot access the fix. In bios it shows the USB Floppy as the first boot up option. But if you press F12 for boot order It does not show a floppy as a choice so I figure it is acting like it is not there cause the bios has to be reset in some way. However when I got the system the date was on the manufacturers date already so I assume someone already tried to reset the board.
