I have an Acer Aspire 5050 3371 Notebook and I'm about to burn it at the stake. Can somebody please help me? I know nothing about computers. Okay, so my Notebook has issues with authority. It seems to only seems to turn on when it wants to. Usually I will hit the power button and nothing on earth happens. Every once in a while it will turn on, but for the most part it stubbornly sits there and refuses to turn on. I have two indicator lights on the front of the machine. One recognizes power coming to it from the outlet it is plugged into, the other recognizes battery power. The one for the battery is on when its plugged in, but the outlet one is never on. It is a brand spankin new battery, so that is not the problem. I don't know what to do. Can somebody please help me?
