Acer laptop 5551 wont charge


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

I need a motherboard driver for "acer aspire


You didn't give your operating system, however, there seems to be only Windows7 Drivers. READ EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU CLICK ON THE LINK!!!! If you have Win7, then go to:
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
1.) After clicking the link above, then click Notebook>Aspire>Aspire 5551. Then, you'll have the drivers list below (notice it CAN scroll down.... the page is choppy). NOTICE the operating system. Please choose your OS. Download, install, and you should be good to go!
If I went too fast on this, let me know. REPLY to this question and I will refine my answer. I hope this helps. Please let me know if this helps!
