Wow.. that's as serious as it gets with laptops... depending how old your laptop is and if it's a few years old.. you may have to think about getting a new one as it may be as expensive (or more) to get the motherboard replacement plus the labor instead of just buying a new laptop.

at least you may still be able to get your data out of your the hard drive: get an hdd enclosure and use that hd as back up for your new laptop.

unfortanetely laptops are not as easy to work with as desktops when it comes to maintenance because most of their designs and physical technology included in them is propriatary so proper servicing it's tricky, more time consuming and therefore more expensive.

    as I said.. with motherboard issues on a laptop there are no many options:

    have try to get in contact with acer and see if that part can be ordered? (send them an email)

    if acer is not able to provide you with a satisfying answer and if your're the one that's going to be working on the computer you may have to start looking for your computer on ebay and see if someone is selling this laptop for parts (unlikely) or another one close to your computer specifications that would probably be good fit even it it's not the same as the one on your computer..

    again, unfortunately when you have a motherboard issue on you computer you need to start to think about how much it would cost to get the part and have it replaced (taking in consideration not only the part itself but also shipping and other fees (if part needs to be imported) and also your time (time is taking you researching for a possible spare part plus the time it will take you to put the part in if you get find it)) at the end doing the math it may not be worth it.

    good luck anyways!, Mr Hindo ;)

WE have seen this a few times in our repair shop, however a reboot of the computer always seemed to fix it. I take it that is not the case for you?

Acer travelmate 2480 does not turn on.

the metal rod is an internal part to the coaxial power coupling, which is normally soldered to the main board in the computer. Chances are you are going to be taking it in for repair. Good Luck!

Possible to replace keys on Acer TravelMate 2420?

what you need to do is go around the pc repair shops with your laptop and ask them if they have any spare parts for the keyboard, this could be a tedious job though and take a while to track any spares.
you may end up replacing the whole keyboard, which may work out cheaper in the end

good luck and kind regards

I can't work out how to activate my inbuilt microphone on my acer travelmate 6292 laptop to use on skype.

The easiest way to find out is go into add/remove programs in the control panel (or look in some listing of all the programs on the computer). See if there is any software related to the mic. If not, contact the manufacturer and ask them if there is supposed to be software or a driver. If there is a driver that you need, They can tell you where to find it. If not, post again.

I have an acer travelmate 7720, when i plug a camcorder in using 4 pin firewire the computer does not recognise the camera? any ideas please

You probably need to load a driver for the camcorder on the the computer.

Generally computers have the needed drivers but not all. Do an internet search for the driver. You will need the manufacturer of the camcorder and the model to find the correct one.

I use to find drivers I need.

If you want me to find the driver for you I need the Manufacturer and model of the camcorder to be of any assistance.
