Make sure the power adaptor is connected, powered on and your computer has lights confirming that you are getting external power. Make sure your battery is plugged in. Try powering the computer on. Look for any signs/noises from the computer. Try holding the power button down for about 10-20 seconds. Often this can reset the computer. Sometimes you may need to let the laptop charge its battery for a while before it will turn on, Good luck - if this doesn't work, report back with more information - ie any noises, fans, beeps, flashing of the screen that occurs.

My aspire 5100 wont hold charge without charger

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Acer notebook usb not recognized

Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process.
