Will not power up when pressing the power button.


You battery is possibly dead. Ensure that your charger is working. You may have a bad charger, and your battery probably went dead due to the charger not charging the battery.

The initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

No power


laptops don't powerup either because the battery isn't full, or it isn't plugged to the mains using the lead. if you think the above is fine then it must be because the laptops isn't accepting power in, either because of the motherboard has died, the chips have burned or the power button is faulty. if it's working using the battery but not using the charger then you need a DC socket repair. if it's plugged to the mains but there is no sign of any lights you're likely to have lost your motherboard. if your laptop does start but you see nothing on the screen its usualy the memory ram or the screen or the motherboard, plug it into an external screen and see what happens

this isn't something you can find a solution for in here, the best way is to take it to your repair shop
an independent one will do, or else I recommend a website which collects it and does it for you
cheaptofix.co.uk

I hope this helps. Please rate me.
