Question about Acer Aspire 5551-2036 : 2.1GHz Athlon II X2 15.6in display LX.PWK02

Hi, Your battery needs to be calibrated, what you will need to do is charge the battery fully or until it can not charge more, drain the battery completely then recharge to full, doing so while letting your computer recognise and mark the full point and the empty point... the process depends on the version of windows you have and also if you have a bundled tool or a program that does this for you, search your laptop installed programs or check in your power options. vista is the only operating system I am aware of that does not have a built in tool, others should have it, just follow the tool instructions and you should be all set, if you can not find the tool or have vista let me know... Best of Luck

check your touchpad settings to enable and adjust the tapping settings. if this does not work, try to reinstall your touchpad driver by downloading the latest one from the acer support web site.

Check underneath and use a small screwdriver to open the small rectangular panel with the image of a stack of CDs near it. This is where the Hard Drive sits.
Check to see if the Hard Drive is properly fitted properly docked into its socket and screwed down or held down properly so it is immobile during use.
If this is not the problem, tap the Fn + the correct function key to enter the Boot Menu at Start Up and use the keyboard arrows to select the Hard Drive boot option.
Make sure there is no CD or DVD in the Optical Drive.
If none of these is the problem then, regrettably, your hard drive may have failed, so remove it and test it in a hard drive dock or an external 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure.
If it has failed you will obviously need a new hard drive, bootable operating system disc, drivers disc and programs and security software to reinstall everything to the new hard drive.
Unfortunately, any data on the old drive will be lost.
It is very unusual for a Hard Drive to fail suddenly without some prior warning or signs of failing (the only realistic way would probably be through a drop, severe knock, serious mains power surge or mains power cut, incorrect shutdown procedure, or sudden disconnection of the power cable during use).
Back up regularly to an external storage device and do not ignore any warning signs. Also plug all computer equipment to the mains via a Surge Protector/Suppressor to prevent damage from power surges or fluctuations.
I hope this helps
