I have an acer aspire 5517 and neither of my ports are working. This happened once before, but I was under warranty so I was able to send it and get it fixed. Now I am not and I was wondering what I needed...

Got into your BIOS and set it to the default settings. F2 should get you into the BIOS once you turn on your laptop. In the BIOS there will be a setting that says Reset defaults. Choose that option and once you choose it then press F10 to save and exit.
If that doesn't work then that means the motherboard is bad. Try several usb devices to make sure. I'm sure thats what Acer did before was they replaced the motherboard since it was under warranty.

Computer heats up and shuts down

I would suggest you open the notebook by yourself and clean it from dust. I had an Acer notebook that shut down very often because it had so much dust inside that it overheated.

Problem with the picture on my Vizio flat panel

I work as a Contractor for Vizio repairs, and I can tell you that the only solution is to replace the motherboard, or if under warranty REPLACE IT! I have had situations when I replace Motherboard and within 2-3 hours the TV is making either Green, Red, Or Blue pixels where dark areas are. If under warranty don't accept any thing but a full replacement.

My sonyericsson c905 shuts down everytime i push the D bottom

Sony Ericsson finally replied to my query, they told me to just go to the nearest official Sony Ericsson repair center (they gave me a list of stores, very helpful). Initially they told me that it might need a part replacement, but they would try to fix the button by first "servicing it" (cleaning + adjusting to factory setting I suppose, but not the software since I've already done that myself). They managed to fix it that way, with no part replacement, gave me a three month service warranty and told me that should it happen several times again, I should have the part replaced already.

Toshiba M45-S165 startup issues

This is normally a motherboard issue. I had one with the same symptoms and I had to replace the motherboard. Worked great after the board was replaced. I had to replace the board because unlike your issue mine stopped working all together. It did take a while before it quit though. Just a note: I have had to replace several of these motherboards for customers as well. If your LCD is broken, you may be better off to save your data and put it in a new laptop that would include a warranty unless your super fond of the machine or you have access to inexpensive parts.
Hope this helps...

Power button problem

As you said, its 4 months old and assumed under warranty cover. Contact Sony Service Center for repair because if you try yourself, will void warranty.
