Question about Acer TravelMate 4230-6499 Notebook

Open Question

Hi i have an acer 4230 travelmate and most of the time i load it up the last 2 inches of the screen will be black and completly unavailable (the mouse stops at the end of the available screen space). I've spoken to acer who asked me to download a vga intel driver, which i did but it had no effect at all. This is pain as it is stoping a programme (football manager) running. There is also about 1cm at the bottom that isn't in use, but is in colour, but the start button on vista my operating system looks to be draining away at the botttom

Check your screen resolution. Since you've updated to the latest driver, make sure the resolution is set to the highest it can go. Also, make sure it is showing an LCD display that cooresponds to what you have.

My acer travelmate 4230 is losing power very quickly when it is not plugged in...it seems like the battery is not holding a charge very well. is my battery just old? any suggestions?


If the battery is 2 or 3 years old or more chances are it needs to be replaced. When you charge it and it gives you less than 30 minutes it is time to replace it, ebay is a good place to start if you are considering getting a new one.

Installing Xp on laptop Acer travelmate 4230


You should be able to use your recovery disk? If that's what you are using and getting that problem then I would call the factory and have them send you another recovery disk cause yours might be bad.
