Question about Acer TravelMate 8104WLMi PC Notebook

1 Answer

Won't Boot Up

No power at all, wouldn't even switch on. Sent it to Acer, took 3 weeks to send it back with quote to replace charger board. I didn't want to wait that long again so I bought the charger board and replaced it. Now I get green power light & hard drive light, fan works for a few seconds then stops, screen shows nothing (maybe backlight - its sort of white), cd drive won't open. Although i can't use the laptop the battery is losing its charge after a day or so. I've taken out the memory and put it back again. I hope you can help. Thanks, Jo

WORX battery chargers

I'm going thru same prob. with 24V battery for WG167. Had same thing with older 18V that came precharged & then wouldn't recharge. 3 batteries later, they sent me to a "technical" rep who said "NO NO, it's not the batteries, it's the charger" He sent me a reconditioned charger & it worked fine. I'm not having any luck so far with the "MAX 24V". On my 2nd battery. It didn't come precharged & will only charge to 18V which is what the charger is outputting! Trying to get a "tech rep" to diagnose but no luck so far. Their tools are handy & work well if you can just get the battery/charger resolved!!!

Acer aspire 7551 Battery will not charge.

I had a similar problem with a laptop years ago...Where the battery terminals connect to the motherboard, and Im not sure about yours because the models are obviously way different, but in some, they use "battery boards" that connect to the motherboard and are seperate from the system. Those "battery boards" have lots of micro capacitors and resistors on them and are responsible for charging the battery and completing the power circuit to "start" the computer. If I took the battery board out of the laptop I had, the whole thing wouldn't work. Since your laptop is starting while plugged in, but the battery is not charging...I would look into this area first. I am going to rummage around to see if I can find a schematic of your laptop and maybe some parts info.

My laptop won't work on battery now!!

look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.

Had rear brakes replaced about a month and half, had a thunking noise. took back, said i had tar on tire causing noise. said it would go away, after 3 to 4 weeks got worst, only heard noise when applying...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Even if you are missing a lug nut it won't make a noise if the rest are tight. I suspect that the problem will be on the wheel bearing. The wheel bearing can be worn out that's why you hear a noise. I suggest that you go for the wheel bearing replacement to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The main power supply regulator board fault. It will be best to replace the power board as card basis rather than trying to repair it.

Acer notebook aspire one


If your power supply has gone bad and your system is under warranty and you can call the customer care of Acer and they will replace the supply or the mother board whichever is required.

or you may check ir yourself by

  1. trying a different battery.
  2. trying different charger.
If both these things are OK try system restore.

Thank you

Why won`t my mp3 take itself off hold?

Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.

If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
