Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
My aspire just came up with a new problem after I just found a temp fix for the old one (had to completely disable the touch pad and use an external mouse because of jumpy cursor -- screens opening and shutting by themselves, etc.) Now upon startup, before any screens come up, the power goes on and off about 4-12 times before the laptop actually boots and the acer screen shows. This can't be good for the system. What to do?
I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.

Acer Aspire 5520-5537 same issue except now the unit powers on does POST and then shuts itself off. As you stated before though that it used to power on and off 4-12 times. The unit I have does that too, without the battery inserted. If I try to power it with the battery, it goes further does post and then dies. I think the issue is related to the cheap plug on the back of the unit comes unplugged frequently and has a loose connection causing damage to the power supply on the motherboard.

This mouse pad is atrocious! I have switched to a wireless mouse and turned off the tap click feature yet this still persists...I love the computer, but this is absolutely horrendous. I do not know what im going to do for the next three years because nothing seems to work

Go to control panel, select mouse, turn off taps and scroll settings,
slow down speed. Apply changes. It will cure most of the problems.
