Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook ?

Keyboard, mouse & start up/shut down problems

\015 My Acer Aspire 5050 has recently started not closing down properly and sometimes it won't start up either. It can seem to start up ok but the keyboard and mouse has ceased when i try to type in my password. This can be overcome occasionally by pressing the keys multiple times or by using a usb mouse (the usb mouse always over-rides the main mouse so i can click re-start etc...) When i click shut down , the laptop sounds like it is continuing to work, although the screen goes black. I'm worried i have avirus that is tracking all my passwords etc... I have done numerous AVG and defender scans & the results show tracking cookies which i have read are nothing to worry about. I'm stuck with what to do now. Sometimes it works perfectly (like now) and othertimes it'll take 3-4 attempts at shut down start up to get things working. Can anyone help? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks,Pammy\015

The USB and ps/2 ports are not working on power up. the keyboard and mouse are not recognized on boot up. The PC boots as normal to the desktop with no problems.
