Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?
Usb ports not working
\015 Hello, i bought my Acer about 10 months ago. Im in Iraq so it is very dusty but i still seem to be having more problems with my notebook than most people with older model laptops!! First my disc drive stopped working all together a couple months ago and i just finally gave up on it and started using my dvd player. My most current issue, though, is the 3 usb ports on my notebook. None of them work! Nothing that i plug in is recognized on the laptop. I tried to troubleshoot on windows but nothing works. Please help!\015
Maybe they are already fried. Try putting a device like a USB based fan or mobile charger that just uses the outside 2 points. If that does not work then some fuses are blown on usb bus. Your USB may need to be checked enabled in BIOS.
\015\012In case you find USB is dead then you can buy a PCMCIA based USB card.

Is there any possibility that they could have been inavertently turned off in the bios? Forgive me if this has already been addressed...but if you have not checked it, reply to me and I can walk you through it.
