Re: no picture and no sound

No picture and no sound means that either the operating system is not installed, the motherboard or hard disc drive is faulty, hard to say where to start as you don't know the last thing that happened to it to start the diagnosis. If you don't own a hdd usb2 to 3.5" ide cable to firstly check the hard drive, you will need to take to a repairer and illiminate as you go along.

Acer Travelmate 6592G Charging problem

The power adapter id under powered by 1.32A that is why it takes a long time to charge and it is putting a lot of stress on the adapter and could cause it to overheat. The ticking sound could be the thermal cut out cutting the power to the laptop to prevent the power adapter from failing.

How I can reset bios psw my noitebook travelmate 212t acer? please help me!

Is there a reason to reset the password, I think Acer have put it there to stop people from messing, because they would have fine tuned it. You will have to get in touch with Acer.
Sometimes under the ram slots there is a round flat battery, if there is, take it out and leave for a minute, then reinsert it.

Sorry I can't help any more.

I have the recovery cd but it keeps saying errorr what can I do now

Reset the BIOS to the default value then try again using the Recovery discs.

If the issue persists then the problem may be with the recovery discs. In this case, you may contact the Computer manufacturer to obtain another copy of the recovery discs.

Wont start up

Sounds like you have a CD or DVD in your CD or DVD drive, or if you have a floppy drive, a floppy in it.

If these are empty, Put in your recovery CD and see if it reads that.
