This is generally caused by a bad battery or a failed memory chip. Start by removing the battery and starting the machine with the power supply only. Then remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If these do not work, then the problem will most likely be a failed component in the power management system on the motherboard, and will need professionally diagnosed in order to track down the exact problem component.

Hi
I get that you was play on the notebook and it was hang and give black screen ...

please try this steps and I hope that helps you :
1- if you don't shutdown the notebook please click along on power button to shutdown the device and then open it again.
2- if you do that you must check about any voice appear when you start the device like Beep ...if there I think there's a RAM Problem or VGA.. if RAM it,s make long beep ..
3- if there is no sound thin you must note if the start up info appear in screen like Acer,CPU and RAM info , Boot info ....
4- if it appear I think you need new operating system , else may be its Video card problem ..

you can also remove the RAM and restore it may be that solve the problem.

My Travelmate 290 series is not working...


Try taking the memory out and then put it back in making sure it seated correctly then start using AC power lead it's probably caused by letting the battery get too low before recharging.Use a start up disc to get it going if you have to. Good luck

When I turn it on I get three beeps and nothing else


Hi,

The 3 beeps are correct diagnosis for the screen problems.

reboot, keep tapping F8, till you get to
the start up screen ( black dos screen )

Try the last known good first at the top, let it roll.

If this fails, try safe mode, let it boot up, then try a system restore,
start,all progz, accessories,system tools,system restore, try go back in time.

If you cannot get into the "black" start up screen at all, your video card, has failed.

because you should get minimum of VGA graphics in safe mode.

if you do, then the video driver is corrupted and needs updating

Regards
Richard.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

Laptop video failure


Sounds like you may have "hit the problem" But to me sounds like the chip itself is no good anymore. Any chance of getting a chip off another board and replacing it?

what you are hearing is a beep code, if its 3 short beeps then its the memory which has developed a fault and it may need to be replaced
