Just inform them that this specific port or parts of your computer is not working and if its still under warranty they should grant the replacement of that parts...

Hope that helps.....

Error message usb ports force stopped because of too much power

It will still be covered by the warranty, take it to an apple repair centre, they will have Apple hardware diagnostics software that will be able to determine the cause of the fault. Worst case scenario will be they have to replace the logic board.

If you are using some sort of USB hub the number of devices you are connecting to that single port may be drawing too much power. Try to determine how much power each device is drawing then ask at an apple store how much power the USB port can supply.

A replacement keyboard may be available from this WEB site.

Power only stays on when plugged in.

It sounds like you have a defective battery. Batteries, even rechargeable ones, aren't made to last forever, so depending on how often it is used and charged, it is very possible that it is dead. If not, you could have a bad connection between the battery and the computer. The best thing to do would be to take it to an apple store or mail it in to apple.

Do you mean that you can't connect to the internet wirelessly? If so, then does your router have a password on it. If it does, then try typing the dollar sign ($) before and after the password. It should connect then. If you're having problems when its connected thru an ethernet cable, then you probably have some problems with the ethernet port.

You would be better off staying with non-Apple laptop, Acer is good, as Mac systems are OVERPRICED and you don't get as much or the performance from Mac's.
This is only my opinion, you can check for yourself, make a list and compare, the CPU Speed, Memory, Hard Drive Space and Speed, Video, USB ports, Price for the features.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Monitor non functional

Am I correct in understanding that your MacBook is operating properly, but when you attach your external monitor it doesn't show anything?
I often connect my black MacBook 2GHz to my flat screen's VGA port. Sometime the screen doesn't respond for one reason or another. The fastest solution is typically to mirror the screens then return to normal. When that doesn't work, it's usually enough to restart the MacBook while it's still plugged in to the external monitor. If neither of those work, try connecting to a different monitor or finally try replacing the connector.
Unfortunately those connectors don't have the best life spans. (See Apple's customer reviews on DVI connectors.)
