Re: Aspire 3000 power socket

Here's a link to a diagram for how to take that laptop apart: For some reason, it's only chapter 6, but I think this is what your looking for. My suggestion? Get some masking tape so that you can keep the screws separate from each other, and you don't have to worry about...Did one of them fall?

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean the level goes down, by itself, whilst playing or it changes to the default when you power off and back on again?

No power after a p10 component what can be the problem

What is a P10 component?


MLCC that is SMD/SMT?

(Surface Mount Device/Surface Mount Technology)

SMD Fuse?

I think it's a P.MOSFET,

Bare with me;

The above shows a Bottom view of the motherboard.
IF, this Acer Aspire 3000 motherboard is like yours;
(And even if it isn' on.....)

Set your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo.
Now use the Zoom In feature by moving the mouse from the middle, to where you want to go.

I'm sure you know the following, but others who may read this later, may not.

The white Socket S1 processor socket is at the Top/Middle.
Looks like this,

Come down from it to the whitish rectangular Heatsink.
Go across to the Right from it, to the SiS 302ELV Video Bridge chipset.

Turn left at the old Oak tree, and head south.

NO.....just wanted to see if you were following!

Go the Right side of the SiS chipset. Go to the Middle.
(Middle/Right side)

Go straight across to the large Power MOSFET.
Looks to have P015 silkscreened on the motherboard, under it.
(Can't make out last digit)

It is sitting Vertically. Length goes up, and down.

Now come straight down a little bit.
Stop at the Power MOSFET that is the same size. This one sits Horizontally on the motherboard.

Looks to have P010 silkscreened under it.

That isn't me, but that is the guy you need to talk to.

I keep the message General Protection fault with a black screen when I turn my acer aspire 3000 on and it won't go past that screen/What can I do to fix it?

To repair corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

When i turn on my laptop an acer aspire 3000 it powers up but the screen is blank

Try upluging it, remove the battery, then press and hold the power button for 10 full slow seconds. Then wait 1 minute, put battery back in, plug back in and turn on.
It should now come on and work fine.

Just need to know how to insert a new memory stick I bought for my dinosaur 3000. Fry's salesman said I could find a step-by-step instruction. THX!

Dinosaur, as in a old acer aspire 3000 or what?

Most likely two screws on the bottom of the laptop that hold the memory cover closed, inside you will find 1-2 memory modules, you may have to remove one of the old ones and then install the new one, or if one is free install the new one there.

What power connection is needed? I can't find my plug-in, and don't know what wattage/voltage my Acer 3000 lap top takes. Anyone know?

The Acer 3000 uses a 19 Volt 3.42 Amp power supply with a 1.5 mm end on it. You can either check your local Acer supplier, or check the following Amazon webpage=>

The battery is just discharged fully. Plug it for few hours idle before your next try.

This should fix it.

There are 3 screw behind the laptop, on the back of the screen hinges. Remove them then open the laptop, and with your finger nails, lift the power cover closest to the screen, it will then raise and you will be able to remove the keyboard.

Acer Aspire 3000 Power Issues

In this case myself assume that your acer do a problem in the memory, try remove and clean the memory.

1. boot your acer without the memory. hear beep? if yes,
Only memory has a problem, if no, then;

examine the mainboard of your acer.

If you can hear a beep then fix back the memory and start the system.

if this not solve the problem, replace the memory.

In case that it hard for you to open the laptop let the repairman do it for you so that all your problem will be examine.
