Windows Home XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, and changing to that OS will not resolve your issues. Did this PC have a warranty? Your problem is best addressed by returning it to the seller for replacement or to their qualified and certified service technicians. This issue does not sound like an OS based problem, but may be a software related problem. Contact Acer and describe these symptoms to them and see what their solution is. If you purchased this from a reputable retail outlet they should have no problem getting you a replacement. If you bought this from some eBay seller or from Amazon as a used product you need to deal with them. Do not wait or delay taking care of this - your time and money are at stake here.

I did some checking and found that ACER no longer supports the model - it was new in 2010 and they are not making it anymore. So, you have no warranty to rely on unless the seller warranted it at the time of sale. This is one reason not to buy used computers - you never know if they are old until you do some research and you don't know if when new the particular model series had a raft of problems reported or if they were relatively trouble free. You should return this turkey and spend a little more for a decent new laptop - many are available for $300.00 now days and will have some sort of warrantee coverage. You may have gotten this machine for a low price, but if you have to shell out hundreds to get it to work it is not a good deal. Return it with a report of the problems and whomever sold this to you should refund your money. I have been in the PC business for more than 20 years and I have seen this kind of thing before. People get taken advantage of in this kind of deal all the time and it should be a ***** crime. Your story is unfortunately sad but all to common. Please get your money back if you can and buy a new machine - that way if there is a problem with it you will not be left vulnerable to the cheats in this business. I really hate this kind of thing, and I am truly sorry it happened to you.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

It sounds lie the charger jack in the laptop is broken. When you installed the new battery the laptop had power to run several hours but once the battery drained it could not be charged back up. Check the charging jack when the charger plugs into. I would bet that you will find to loose or broken. These jacks can be replaced but you will need to take the laptop apart and do a little soldering to do the job. Check Ebay for the jack, you can do a search for your model laptop along with "power jack", the parts should run less than $10 with shipping.

check the device manager to ensure it detects the camera, check to ensure you have all the drivers for the cam up to date missing any of these can cause issues since windows constantly updates with security and bug fixes these can cause some device drivers to not work unless they are up to date.

The CD player could be bad or dirty. Blow it out to see if that helps. You might also look in the BIOS to see if legacy support for the CD device is enabled.
