Plugs melt when the connections 'short circuit'.
This means the positive and negative energy paths are touching.
Even the smallest AAA or 9V battery will get really warm if your connect the terminals together, and the power supply of a laptop computer pushes more more power (amps) than a little battery.
If it is indeed the power connection of your laptop has some melting damage, I must recommend you have your laptop and its power supply serviced or replaced, and to not plug it into the wall until you do. Fires have started by malfunctioning/damaged cameras and computers.

I hope that helps.

The plug and the socket must be heating up due to loose socket/plug. Hence the plug melted. The socket also may have got distorted but we cant see it as it is inside. When you are using the laptop, plugged in, it is not only charging the battery but also running the laptop. So, there is double load on the charger and the wiring including the plug and socket. You must use the charger only to charge the laptop battery and not run the laptop as well.

Beeping 5315 model icl50


Sounds like the beeping is the least of the problems. "slightly melted around the AC jack" would be a main concern. You may have a fire hazard in your hands.

Acer Asipre 5315 laptop Battery A/C supply plugged in, hit power switch and the power light blinks 2 (maybe 1 time)times but the unit does not power on.


remove the battery and power cord then remove the battery on the mother board, hold down the power button for 60 seconds to drain the capacitors, if that doesn't work it's the motherboard that should be replaced.

Wont power on


Try plugging it into its charger.

If that doesn't work try another outlet.

If that doesn't work if there is a light on the charger see if it glows or not whne plugged in.

If that doesn't work replace the battery with another one if you have one.

Try replacing the hard drive if you have another.

IF NONE of these work send it into Acer and see if they know the problem.
