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

My acer aspire one notebook won't boot up.

Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

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.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!

If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

My Acer Aspire One A150 screen is damaged and in inverted colours

"I got somebody to replace the screen for me and it was working until now" this more likely affects your warranty as the warranty seal is tampered..
What did the guy do to get it right did you replace something or just got it serviced..??

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
