Exit full screen

It depends on what application is causing the full screen mode. Try one of the following
- hit Esc key
- Hold Alt button, while pressing Tab - this will bring up all applications that are running - you can select the desktop.
- press Alt and F3 buttons together - this will close the application that is running in full screen.

Windows operating systems allow you to set up an administrator password, which prevents unauthorized users from downloading applications and making system changes without your permission.
If you have forgotten your administrator password, you can reset it easily and create a new one that you can use to log into Windows.
Since Acer Aspire computers use Windows operating systems, resetting your password is a simple process you can accomplish in minutes.

Restart the Acer Aspire. When Windows boots up, select the username you want to reset the password for and press "Enter."
Click "Use your password reset disk" to launch the password reset wizard.
The password reset wizard enables you to create a new password for your user account.
Click "Next" on the password reset wizard and insert the password reset disk.
Click "Next."
Type your new password in the "Type a new password" box and type the password again in the confirmation box.
Type a hint to you use in case you forget your password next time.
Click "Finish" to activate your new password.
Restart your computer and log on to Windows using your new password.

Mouse and Keyboard not working properly

You say that the computer works in safe mode. This indicates that there is probably something running that is interfering with your mouse and keyboard.
Run MSCONFIG from the command line and go to the startup tab. Disable all the items and restart in normal mode. See if that makes an improvement. If it does, then you can go into MSCONFIG and re-enable stuff as needed until you find the one program/utililty that is messing things up.
As for the battery, if you unplug the computer, does it keep running? If so, the battery is probably OK. If it stops, you need a new battery. If the battery is fairly new, then you might have a different problem, but let's try this other stuff first.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't run in normal mode only safe mode

Sounds to me like a glitchy install. Try reinstalling the operating system and ensuring that you are using all the updated drivers for your hardware.

Try reinstalling the ATI Southbridge Drivers. The AMD website will have a link (it's on the same page as the Catalyst drivers).

You will have to use version 9.3 as the Radeon Xpress series is no longer supported with 9.4 and up.

Try running an Antivirus and Antispyware application.
One of your other programs is interfering. (as it disappeared in safe mode)
Try deleting things out of the Startup in the Start button menu.
