    same problem...aspire 5050 5554. The worse part is that my power button is half limp because of repeated attempts..!!

    You need to verify that it is getting power in the first place.

    Have you checked the fuse is ok?

How do i activate bluetooth on my acer 5755 model leptop?

Press the "Bluetooth" button found just above the keyboard. The LED above the button should illuminate.

  • Click "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add a Device." Your Acer scans for other Bluetooth devices in the area.

  • Click the name of the device in the window that appears, and click "Next" to establish a connection with the external device.

  • If you faced any other issue with your Acer laptop/desktop/Notebook, feel free to get expert technical assistance at for troubleshooting.

    There are six sub models included in the model number you have given and according to the acer website none of the specifications indicate that there is wirelss bluetooth built into the laptop. So it appears that it does not.

    Acer 5570 - Power switch is not working

    Try removing the power supply (from the wall) and the battery pack. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug the mains power (from the wall) back in and then press the power button. It should work. Then you can replace your battery pack. Don't know why it works but it has worked for me in the past. Good luck!
