Answers :

It sounds like your keyboard/mouse controller chip, or input/output chip. A new motherboard should fix it, or a less expensive route may be a pcmcia usb adapter. The adapter should let you connect a usb keyboard and mouse.

This problem is quite common with Acer.
I guess you have a mechanical problem, sounds like the mother board have some issues on starting all devices.

If you could use keyboard to go in the bios, and see the screen, if would be the OS that need to be repaired.

I used the CD to install the software. Now what I would like to know is how I program my mouse left & right buttons to what action? Leaning left & right on the wheel produces what?
