  1. Laptop isn't charging


    Hello, about 2 days ago my Acer Aspire 5 laptop has stopped charging and the power and battery light blink quickly whenever I try to charge the laptop. When I keep the charger plugged into the laptop but disconnect it from the outlet it continues to blink and not charge for a minute and then stop blinking but when I just unplug it directly from the laptop it stops blinking immediately. This started happening when I was moving my laptop from one side of the room to the other. I've tried taking out the battery and reconnecting it but it still continues to not charge and the power and charging light blink. Everything else seems to be working fine and I only got this laptop a year ago. Also I am using the charger that came with the laptop.

    :)

  2. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

  3. Laptop no longer charging since Windows 10 update

    If the laptop works without the battery then charger is functioning correctly. Take a cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it (or some on-the-go alcohol swabs), and clean the metal contacts that connect your battery to your laptop.

    Make sure to install all Windows important updates.

    Install latest versions of your laptop device drivers you can download the latest device drivers from the device manufacturer or from your laptop manufacturer website.


    Step 1

    1. Shutdown your laptop.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Connect the AC power adapter to your laptop.

    4. Power on the laptop

    5. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu or from Control Panel.

    6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).
