Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Computer boots up, but can't use keyboard or anything else

\015 Computer boots up and goes to my desktop, but nothing else works, (no keyboard, no mouse, none of the USB ports, even the CD drive). After being on a while it even goes to the screen saver, but I can't get it to do anything...have to turn off power, but on reboot it does the same thing. If I put it to sleep, the restart screen comes up when I turn it on it just stays on that screen because I can't use the keyboard or mouse. Can't even use external keyboard or mouse. Need help!\015
