    This is for an Aspire 5100.

    The computer logs on fine, but the user is unable to log in since none of the keys respond. The computer won't soft reset, and the mouse won't work either.At best , sometimes Fn+F6 allows for the screen to be shut off.

    Any help? There is alot of school work on this particular machine.

    Hi there

    Same happened with my laptop. Get the battery out of the laptop and then put it in again and see if it works. Did u try Safe Mode?

    Hey,

    Thanks for the reply. I've been trying unsuccessfully with the Hard Power Reset , taking the battery out, holding the power button , etc. Still nothing. I'll keep trying to access safe mode, but at the moment, no buttons are responding when powering/logging on.

    Does it really matter what buttons are held during boot up?

    is this in the system bios? I can use this machine with a different HD installed, so maybe that can lead to a solution?
