Firstly check the memory, remove the hard drive and cd (if you can) remove the battery and try boot on AC power only with the memory back in, if it boots and you get the bios screen, there is a hardware fault, if it still does not boot try some differnt memory if you have any spare.
the problem to me sounds like a possible inverter problem or "backlight" as it is sometimes known, this situated behind the front plastic lid cover or bezel

regards

Riiiight, why is this in the Desktop category again? So it acts on, but you can't see it; perhaps it's the backlight that has gone out (probably from its particular supply or EL component failing)?  Get some good light on it and see if there's a pattern in black, or try to attach another display and see what comes up.
Also; since the HDD light is on...I don't suppose you hear any HDD activity?

Few things can cause this. Going by your info it's an old 2004 model, XP with Intel P4? First remove the bios battery and try to boot.

(Hard Drive , CDRom noise and lights). 2 - Loud Fan noise and does not slow rpm? 3- No Fan , HDD, CDROM lights only power light?

Systemax Ascent HA3200 RTS won't boot - fans come on - no display


The motherboard seems OK as it is displaying signs of life. The Monitor should display something before booting up, which it is not.Please do the following. 1. Remove the RAM and reinsert the DIMMs into their sockets and boot up. 2. Disconnect the HDD data cable from the HDD and the motherboard and reconnect. Boot up. 3. Disconnect the monitor and reconnect. Boot up. At boot up press F2 and set the PC to default settings. Boot up. Later when you want to apply your settings, keep noting down what you did when. Just in case.

Acer Travelmate 290 model CL 51 How much Ram can I put in and continue to see a marked improvement in speed? It has 500 MB at the moment.


What operating system are you running?

If it is Windows XP you can go up to 4GB. More with Vista.

However 2 GB should be sufficient and you will notice a spike in performance and load times.

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...


It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps
