Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
I own an acer 292Lmi (which is basically a 290 with a little more extra power) for 3 years. After 1 year the motherboard/video card were replace cause the laptop was not starting up at all. The laptop since then have been really stable and worked really well.... till last week.
Last week it started to have a problem. When I start normally (cold boot) win load perfectly and the system is 100% stable. If I try to restart the system (using the windows restart function) the system shuts down correctly but then when powering on again it hangs at the bios screen. At this point is not possible to go in the bios setup. The solution is wait something like 10/20 mins to allow to "cool off" and then the system is starting again.
In my opinion something after few mins that the laptop is on is in somewhat "wrong state" which cause the bios to hang. I tried to open partly the laptop and disconnect the touchpad, the modem the LCD still nothing.
Does anyone faced the same issue ?
