The battery continues to charge if the computer is off. The computer probably won't turn on because the battery is so low. It might not be charging because the power cord might not be plugged into a wall plug that is on. The plug might be on a switch. Find a plug that you know for sure that is on then plug it in there and try again.

My acer aspire X3950 takes a while to shut down


Sounds like it's probably due to a lot of processes running or not much memory in the computer. You can go through your startup entries and look for things that don't need to run or you can add more RAM. Crucial.com will tell you which kind of RAM your computer needs.
To view startup processes Vista/7 click the start menu and type in msconfig, hit enter, click the Startup tab. Windows Defender, which is built in, will also help you with that.

It sounds like you have a corrupt registry... :(

Vista handles their registry fixes a bit differently than xp.
However, I found a nice Microsoft article to help me out.

I'm pretty sure it is easier to repair the registry with Vista and 7, make sure to back it up!

Oh, one last note --- In my case with XP, it was a lot easier to manuver registry files if the Hard Drive is hooked up to another computer.

Will not turn on, last time used, I turned it off manually?


Try this:

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
