Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
Thank you very much for your reply Honestly your suggestion about the COMS battery is very wise , Yes I thought about this solution but the COMS Battery looks fine. I have even measured the voltage and it was about 3 VDC , and its soldered to the motherboard , so there is no way of losing connection. Regarding the recovery CDs yes I have tried it one time before, There is a fresh copy of windows on the hard disk , but even with this fresh copy of windows the problem still exists , ( I am sure its not an operating system problem ) As I said before, sometimes it loads the window with no problem for few seconds or minutes but whenever you move or touch the pc it will turn off again. I don't know if this is logical, but I have noticed that if I put the pc on an angle or just put something under the pc in the front it will work , then as soon as I remove it or touch the pc it will go off and keeps on rebooting in a loop. to make it easier I am including two Pictures; One is the final step before it reboots, and the second for the screen when it goes blank. Many thanks for your help
I have the exact same problem with my acer 290. At first you could give it a good whack and it would work just fine (HD wouldn't spin up until you hit/pressed on it in just the right spot). Now it does as Fakhri described (sometimes tilting/pressing on it etc works for a bit, most of the time however, no dice. I've taken it apart cleaned everything thoroughly, but it does not look like there is a blown cap anywhere. Perhaps a leaky capacitor (I've noticed that now if I hit it it has power for 10-15 seconds, then dies...)??? If anyone comes up with a solution, besides a new motherboard... please let me know.

Is this pc a new build? if so have you screwed the motherboard directly to the case or used the raising clips? sounds like a possible short somewhere along the line.
