If by this you mean the positive and negative poles on your Laptop's Power Adaptor are touching, this is NOT safe at all and should be disconnected from power immediately.

Such a problem can result in permanent damage to the Laptop, a power surge, and at worst, even a fatal electric shock to the user.

The Power Adaptor needs to either be replaced, else separate the positive and negative and individually wrap each one with electrical tape, obviously do this with the adaptor unplugged!

Regards,
Tristan

Why would the plug melt on an Acer 5315?


Plugs melt when the connections 'short circuit'.
This means the positive and negative energy paths are touching.
Even the smallest AAA or 9V battery will get really warm if your connect the terminals together, and the power supply of a laptop computer pushes more more power (amps) than a little battery.
If it is indeed the power connection of your laptop has some melting damage, I must recommend you have your laptop and its power supply serviced or replaced, and to not plug it into the wall until you do. Fires have started by malfunctioning/damaged cameras and computers.

I hope that helps.

I HAVE AN ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 5715 - 4713 AND THE SOUND HAS BEEN PLAYING VERY LOW SUDDENLY AND WHEN I POWER IT ON AND IT BOOTS FROM THE HARD DRIVE IT MAKES A SCREECHING NOISE. THANK YOU AND AWAITING YOUR...


Hi,

My name is vinod. Prince829 you said screeching noise when booting up. so try doing the bios default. i.e. shutdown your computer. turnit on immediately keep tapping f2 it would go into bios screen. or if not try tapping delete. For some computer it goes into bios using delete.

So once your into bios screen. press f9 once. it would two options yes or no. say yes. now press f10 save and exit. it restarts the computer. so check if you hear the screeching noise or not. if yes it can a hardware issue. contact acer for support.

My acaer aspire laptop keeps switching itself off


If the computer turns off instantly after the power is pressed, either you are not plugged into the charger and the battery is empty, or there is a hardware fault that is preventing it from starting up properly.

if you are plugged into the charger and the battery has power as well, then try unplugging the power and take out the battery for 5 minutes, plug both back in and try to turn it on. if the same problem repeats then it is most likely a hardware issue.

If you are in warranty contact acer or your dealer, you will have to send / ship the laptop to acer warranty repair, more details from acer or your dealer.

If you are outside of warranty, take the laptop to a local professional for a diagnosis and a repair estimate.

Hello, i have an acer notebook with built in webcam. how do i use this? there are no instructions.thanks, jack. this is an aspire 5715.


You just need a webcam-aware software such as Skype, and ensure the webcam is enabled and working.

Check it out in the control panel, "Scanners and Digital Cameras". If it's not there, you should check under "Hardware" whether a webcam is found and recognized, and what problems there were.

If it's there, there's a configuration and testing wizard to run, then you're done.

Aspire One NO turn on at all


You need a DC Jack Repair/Replacement..
your dc jack is the port where your AC Charger plug plugs in to on the laptop.. They can Short out over time and the solder that connects the positive/negative pins burns off which causes the power to short out ... which in turn cuts off power connection to the laptop and can cause motherboard damage if not repaired..
