Kyb/touchpad non functional in Acer 3009 Wlci laptop?

Threaded View
I have a 14 month old Acer Aspire 3000 series laptop that has worked very
well since purchase.  About 2 weeks ago it started "locking up".  Assuming
it was overheating I blew out all the cooling areas, fins, etc.  After
restarting it it seemed to work just fine for about 12 hours.  Now, after
being shutdown for a couple of days, I just powered it up and got to the
login screen (WinXP) but the mouse and keyboard functionality are
completely gone!  In fact, holding down the power button for over five
minutes won't even shut it off.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be the matter?  How  might I be able
to regain control and/or determine what the problem is to remedy?

Thanks for any suggestions.

site and nothing works. I think its not a hardware problem since
everything works fine in linux (I have two operating systems in my

Any kind of help will be appreciated.
