My CF-29 has battery issues


I'm just thinking that this might be caused by your power supply unit that came with the laptop although I'm not totally sure about this. When you are at home what I would recommend you do is remove the battery and just use the laptop whilst it's connected to the power supply as this preserves the life of the battery. Obviously charge the battery up and when it's full use the battery alone without the power supply unit. Carry out this test if you haven't done so already and connect the power supply but remove the battery and see if you face any problems. If it is the power supply then you may need to replace that. Good luck. Andrew

Turn off actomatically, cannot turn on so far.


Your battery may be too low to allow charging it and "starting" your computer at rhe same time.

Remove the battery and clean the contacts on the battery and the laptop.
1. Plug in the laptop power adapter with no battery in the laptop.
2. Turn ON computer. It should stay turned on.
3. After Windows settles, insert battery.
4. The computer will stay powered on.
5. Allow to charge.

I have a laptop gateway computer, the power light is on but everything else is dead, I cannot get the hard drive to eject,all this seem to happen after I got a virus?will this have anything to do with my...


Check all connections mate . Any one of the below could be faulty :-

Power outlet at the wall - try plugging something else into the socket or use a different socket

Are you using any multi-plug adapters? Plug the laptop straight into the mains

Your DC jack may be loose (Where the charger plugs in). This is a common problem and most laptops will get this during their life. Take if to a repair shop to get it fixed. A quick way of checking this is to plug the charger in and wiggle the cord - if the socket where the charger plugs in moves , its a loose jack and it will need to be resoldered.

Dead Battery - Try another battery , or let the battery charge - Try running directly off the mains

Hard drive wont eject? - There not supposed to , the only way you usually disconnect the hard drive is by unscrewing it from the laptop.

How far can you get when you say "Everything else is dead"? can you get to the BIOS? , does anything appear on the screen aty all? If you get a picture but cant boot then its likely that the virus corrupted your windows installation which means you will have to use the repair discs that came with the laptop or another windows install disc to reinstall windows - This will however , lose any documents , music , programs etc that you put on - If you want to keep things off the drive , plug it into another laptop , get all your data back then reinstall into your own laptop. If you rtry putting the drive in another laptop and things dont work and you cant even get your data or the drive doesnt appear , you will need a new hard drive and then have to reinstall windows on the new drive

If you have a volt meter measure the power coming out of the power supply and make sure the outlet is good that you are plugging it into.

Try resoldering the connection on the circuit board where the power supply plugs into it. There may be a loose connection or a crack in the board that you could jumper around using a short piece of wire soldered around the break.

Are you just running it from the battery? It sounds like you may have a motherboard problem. I would first put in my OS boot cd and see if it boots from the CD. Let me know if you don't know how to boot from CD. If it does boot from cd then run a chkdsk /r on your hard drive.
If that doesn't fix it I would see if the power supply is not working again are you running from the battery without power supply?
Thanks,
Henry

I just wanna know how to replace an acer laptop hard drive with a bigger one


Usually you

1) purchase the new hard drive
2) look around the base of your laptop to find where the HDD is, if you look at the manual which im sure acer will have on its site it will show you
3) usually 1 or 2 screws are unscrewed and you slide out the hard drive, it will be in a special holder
4) unscrew the old hard drive and insert the new one and secure it in place like the old one.
5) insert, re-do screws up, turn on laptop.

this new hard drive wont have any information on it so you will need to reinstall windows on that drive.
