    I very seldom use the battery. But it's not just one of the usb ports it's all three.

Sounds like either youve broken a USB port? or something thats plugged in your laptop doesnt like or is starting to develope a fault.

Or your battery is faulty (always use the battery? never use the battery?) if you never use the battery the Lithium cells can become overcharged or collapse.

Let me know...

My laptop is completely dead

Does the power cord not work? Did your laptop battery completely die and won't hold a charge? Anything happen to it recently like hardware/memory installation or did it get dropped? No power outages or lightening strikes?

Hi Sue.

Remove the power cord from the back and then take out the motherboard battery for half an hour (you need to remove the side panel from the case to access the motherboard) after the half hour is up pop the battery back in and connect the power cord, see if that resolves the problem.
The fact that you can hear 1 beep indicates that all is fine so I doubt you have fried the BIOS chip.
Also, if you have a stand alone graphics card installed remove that and clean the contacts, then reinsert it.

Plesae post back if you have more problems.

Good luck.

Computer been pluged in for hour and willnt charge over half way what do i do?

The battery or the charger may be malfunctioning. Please verify that the computer recognizes that the power cord is plugged into the computer. There should be a plug icon over the battery in your lower right hand corner. If it doesn't show the plug icon, and the battery is draining your charger is likely bad. Otherwise your battery is more than likely going. If your model is several years old, I'm afraid to say that after constant (or even semi-constant) use the battery will die after 2-3 years and need to either be replaced or used less frequently.

Acer aspire 5536 wont boot up

remove power cord, pull out battery, press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds. Wait 1 minute, place battery back in and then power cord. Then try it. This should work. If by chance it does not, check your memory chips because an effective one will prevent boot up. You can remove one at a time and try booting to see if one is faulty.

My acer aspire 5050 dosent start up after you shut it down and boot it up? Help me!!!

Unplug the power supply, remove the battery then press the power button 10x or more holding each press for about 10secs. Insert the battery, plug the power supply and turn it on. If it doesn't, repeat the steps. This should remove the static electricity stuck in the mainboard.

If it turns-on, set your laptop to hybernate when you close the lid so you don't need to shutdown it anymore. If it runs out of power while in hybernation, it should start again.

My computer will not boot up Acer 5050 all the lights com on but it never boots the screen stays black. it will not turn off unless you remove the battery.

If you have a VGA cable and a monitor, attempt to plug this into a monitor to verify that the laptop will not boot into your OS (Windows generally). If it does end up booting into your OS, then it sounds like your LCD has died or become unplugged inside the laptop.
