    Hi everyone
    I recently formatted+reinstaled Windows on a "old" laptop (Acer Aspire 5620)
    I installed Windows 7 (instead of Xp that it had earlier ) and after the installation was complete (first time n desktop) the touchpad and keyboard would not operate. at all
    Ive tried all windows updates (in case of drivers), because there are no official drivers for 7(only xp)

    The thing is that inside device manager theres nothing wrong with the touch+keyboard
    (no marks, both are recognized and "operate fine")
    Ive tried reboots, sometimes rarely the keyboard might enter a couple characters (with delay) and sometimes the touchpad might move the pointer a bit (with delay too)

    However the keyboard works fine in bios, and both worked perfectly in windows setup (in formatting i mean)
    The devices also works ok in safe mode.

    Any ideas plz?

    P.S. The computer before the format had ALSO win7 so its not something new with that

    -problem solved.
    in case anyone has similar problem, mine was caused by bad battery condition, messing with the electronics
    unplugged the battery and worked on cable, and instafixed
