My Acer Notebook

I have been having minor problems with my Acer notebook for a while now, but just tonight, I have experienced something that I have never experienced before with it. At times, my computer would just cut off on its own when it gets hot. Just recently, my sounds were breaking up when I would play music or watch videos. There were a few error messages and now, I can't get it to load Windows. Shortly after the Acer display, my screen goes dark with a little flickering thing appearing in the top left hand corner of the screen. I tried to restart it and get the same results.

Can you please help me wit his?

My name is Lucretia and my email address i

It sounds like you are having heat issues.

Make sure when you use it the fan is not blocked.

The fan is probably not getting enough air. You need to have a technician free the fan and heat sinks of lint and debris.

If this does not help then you Motherboard and processor would most likely need to be replaced having been damaged by the heat.

Acer laptops left side shift key not wrking

Reinstall your keyboard if it is software problem. If it is hardware problem you can change the keyboard or learn to use the RIGHT SHIFT key. A minor annoyance (in my opinion).

The DC Jack is the socket into which the power cable plugs into your notebook. If it has come loose the the solder points connecting the jack to the motherboard have broken contact and that is why the notebook is not charging. A loose DC jack is not suitable for DIY repair unless you are experienced in internal notebook repairs and have all the right equipment.
The only way to get this fault repaired is for a professional notebook repair technician to completely disassemble the notebook and then either re-solder the original jack back into place or install and solder in a new replacement jack before reassembling the notebook. Because of the skill and time it takes to disassemble repair and reassemble a notebook, repairing a loose DC jack can be expensive, but if you look around you should be able to find an experienced notebook repair center that will do it for $50-$75 and give you a warranty as well.
A DC jack often become loose if it is allowed to directly bear the deadweight of the heavy AC/DC Adapter on the power cable or the cable catches on something wile connected to the notebook. the AC/DC Adapter should lie full weight on the floor during charging. If the cable is not long enough for the heavy AC/DC Adapter to reach the floor, then it should be lifted it up and placed on the desk or table beside the notebook. Any cable length problems should be solved by using a surge-protected power extension cable. Also, a notebook should never be carried around when its power cable is attached to it.

Linux or XP?


If you are RIPPING music from an external CD/DVD drive, converting it to mp3 or wma, the default location is

C:\Documents And Settings\<your user name>\My Documents\My Music...


SHOULD be in your /home/<your username> folder somewhere, maybe in a directory called documents or music or something like that...

Problem with my Acer

hello Aznarel,

Firstly we need to establish if the problem is caused by the notebook's display or by it's on board graphics adapter. To do this I need you to connect an external display to the notebook. I see that the 292 has a VGA I/O port to which any VGA display can be connected.
When the notebook's screen is displayed on the external display one of two scenarios may be experienced:
  1. The problem's symptoms may manifest on the external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's on board graphics adapter. Since this problem can only be solved by replacing the notebook's motherboard, it may be more economical to buy a new one, depending on the status of the notebook's warranty.

  2. The problem's symptoms are not experienced when the screen is displayed on an external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's display. If this is the case I will suspect a malfunctioning inverter.
    Reason: When the LCD TFT display starts flickering it is a sign that the backlight is not receiving the correct current (the inverter provides the backlight with the required current).
    As opposed to a malfunctioning backlight. When a dark, faint output display is the only experienced symptom (that is; no flickering of the screen and no lockup of screen display) the LCD's backlight is at fault
    In case of scenario 2 the solution will be to take the notebook to a computer repair shop where a certified IT technician can order and replace the malfunctioning inverter.
I hope you find this information helpful in solving the problem.
Please take the time to rate this solution.
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service.
