Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

My acer aspire 5100 keyboard,usb mouse unusable


Answers :

A temporay solution is to use a pcmia card with usb port slots. That way you can connect a usb keyboard, usb mouse or any other peripheral device thru this slot. It has worked for me for 1 month so far. It is the most inexpensive way to temporarily fix this aspire 5100 manufacturer defect. I believe that this model easily overheats and affects the motherboard in areas that control dvd, usbs, keyboard and mouse. I am contemplating a suit against Acer for this 'lemon' of a product. There has been no recall nor support from Acer to fix this problem and they continue selling this and other defective products. Feel free to email me at [email protected] from comments or questions.

O.K If you follow these instructions to the letter ,I can help you get your system up and running again.Acer motherboards have the CMOS battery hardwired in its frame work and cant be changed This is where your problem is.Unlike most other computer brands you can change out the CMOS battery like a watch battery.
First Dont panic.
Now go to a computer supply store and get a de-magnatised computer screw driver set and cpu thermal paste ( artic silver).
Remove battery
Remove all srews from the back of the laptop
open and remove back cover.
Remove the Hard drive,and ram stick
Flip laptap bak upright and remove title bar strip or power bar strip (its the plastic strip above the keyboard) its only snapped in so be gentle .Remove the screws that are visible here.
Remover keyboard and unplug the circuit stip to both the keyboard and touchpad mouse.
Remove the power plug leading to your screen.
Remove the entire keyboard face plate with a few more screws.
Flip laptop back over and remove the fan the cpu heat sink and cpu.
Follow the wires leading from your screen to the clipset.unplug the black and white wires then remove the chipset.Pull the LCD creen wire through the board and remove the screen from you laptop.
Now all that should be left is your motherboard and dvd rom drive.
At this point your going to empty the information being held by your corrupted CMOS battery by FREEZIN IT!!! YES FREEZIN IT. Put mother board in your freezer for no shorter then 10 hours ,taken it out once ever 2 hour for 10 mins to warm then back to the freezer again. This process will clear the CMOS battery.
Now its time to put all back together.
Follow your step backwards until you reach the point of installing your CPU.
Take a cue tip with some rubbing alcohol and remove the old thermal paste from the cpu and heat sink. Now add a tick tak size amount to you CPU and reseat it in its housing (notice the small arrow on the cpu and housing indicting the direction for the cpu to set.) tighten down retainting screws. and install the heat sink.
Finish the process backwards until your laptop is back together.
Turn your pc on and you should be good to go.
I further recommend backing up all data and reformating your drive.Also change any settings in you BIOS to its default levels.
I rate this process a difficulty of 5 out of 10
