Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

The keyboard on my laptop is locked and i cant use it to search but upon startup it works and i can input the password to open it and then it locks again


Answers :

It sounds like your keyboard device driver. It may have been "updated" automatically.
\015\012Do you have a spare USB keyboard or can you remove one from a desktop temporarily?
\015\012
\015\012Power OFF the laptop and plug in the USB keyboard. Power ON laptop.
\015\012Use the USB keyboard, not the laptop keyboard for this procedure.
\015\012First, does the USB keyboard work w/o locking up?
\015\012
\015\012Anyway, Go to the "Device Manager" by right-clicking "My Computer" and select "Manage".
\015\012A list of Your computer devices will appear on the right window. Expand the +Keyboard and find the HID Keyboard Device associated to your laptop. (Pick one by checking the properties of each one to see which one may not be working)
\015\012
(( btw, HID = Human Input Device ))
\015\012You can either "UNINSTALL" it or "UPDATE DRIVER"
\015\012
\015\012When finished, reboot, remove USB keyboard if you want to and the laptop keyboard will work just fine, or the OS will "find" it first , then start working ok.
\015\012
\015\012Follow the steps, it will work.
Hi,
Remove the hard drive from the machine and boot it up without the hard drive.
Turn the computer off and reinsert the hard drive making sure its connected properly.
Reboot the laptop and see if the keyboard will work in the operating system.


If it does not then please post back.


Good luck.
