If you can get it to start in "safe mode" do a system restore back to before your download. Who's Antivirus was it? if it's infected then don't mess with it again. Does the software show up in Programs and Features?

Acer aspire 5100 when a laptop does not start with power plug on and no battery what could be the issue

Do you have a voltmeter? The first thing I would check is to see if you are getting 19VDC coming out of the charger. The on then off when you have the battery in sounds like your battery is almost out of juice and the fact that nothing happens when you plug it in without the battery indicates to me that your power adapter is not working.

Not charging

The battery is not working as it should. Either, replace the whole lot under warranty or leave the battery on charge until it will accept a charge.

Things that you can try:
1. disconnect the charger and the battery. 2. press and hold the power button for 15 secs. w/o the charger and the battery (the reason for that is to drain flea power). 3. connect the laptop straight from the charger w/o the battery and turn it on. It should turn on fine. If nothing happens, the motherboard is bad or the charger.

Not the best time to try and use a laptop you've been having trouble with. Go to to get their phone number or tech support chat because your laptop should still be under warranty.

Laptop will not turn when the power button in pressed

Check the battery or the charger, try to take the battery off and plug straight to the charger if nothing work, you have to check either the Ram, Cpu or the board. but first try with the charger. try to use another one to make sure before any other step.

Aspire One NO turn on at all

You need a DC Jack Repair/Replacement..
your dc jack is the port where your AC Charger plug plugs in to on the laptop.. They can Short out over time and the solder that connects the positive/negative pins burns off which causes the power to short out ... which in turn cuts off power connection to the laptop and can cause motherboard damage if not repaired..
