The link below indicates a long standing issue with Acer Aspire 5100. Seems to be a Motherboard issue that Acer has not resolved. If your Laptop is still under warranty contact Acer immediately.

Try hitting FN-F7 to see if the touch pad will work again. If this is a Motherboard problem the PCMCIA card you mentioned may be your only recourse unless your Acer has a PS2 port.

Tech Republic thread on 5100.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.
