Hello my fellow BYC'ers! I'm really frustrated right now because my two-year old Acer Aspire 5517 laptop is well. . .on the fritz. But I'm wondering if there is anyone on here, my fellow chicken lovers, who can shed some light on what's wrong with it or maybe if I'm doing something wrong. I got this computer as a graduation present from high school and now I am a second year student in college. I'm a person who is always on the computer, but I make sure to try to condition my battery to the best of my ability despite the short charge life of one two hours on a good day..Lol. It is critical I have a laptop of my own and this one has served me well, but today it refused to hold charge. It refused to even show the light on the front of the computer that says it's charging or not. When the computer would finally hold some charge and I turned it on, it showed very little battery power. I have to use someone else's charger, my roomie's, because my other won't charge the battery without being held by my hand in place. So it's telling me it's the charger that is the problem..But has anyone else had this problem? Is it really the charger or could it be the battery or the charge port? I'm definitely confused and do not wanna have to buy a whole new laptop, so I'm looking for some help. Are my thoughts correct? Thanks for any and all help, my friends I appreciate all opinions and helping, typing hands.
