1. dell inspiron n5110 usb 3.0 port not working on windows 10 64 bit

only 1 usb port is working. the drivers from Dell/Drivers - didn't solved that issue.

2. and another problem - the battery is not charging - it's status is:

0% available (Plugged in, charging).

I read that I have to update the bios, but to update the bios I need at least 10% battery.

Thank's for your help.

The problem with the Renesas controller and Windows 10 is known --

For the other issue, does the system correctly identify the AC adapter (f2 at powerup to check).  If the adapter shows "unknown", you have a bad AC adapter, power jack or mainboard.  A BIOS update will not solve this - replace parts in that order.

If the adapter IS recognized but the battery won't charge - particularly if the system is on its original battery, which is now 5-6 years old - it's time for a new battery.  They do wear out over time -and anything beyond 3 years or so has had a good, long life.
