Question about Acer TravelMate 2303WLCi Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop will not boot up

When I push the power button the power light comes on and the fan starts but my HHD light does not flash and the screen stays black as if it was never turned on. I have removed battery and used the power cord and get the same results. When I tried starting it last night it would come on and the the screen would do weird things to the graffics and then it would just go blank again I am guessing it is a bad HDD and or the LCD inverter can anyone confirm my suspicions or add more please help.

Hello,
Looks like you are on the right route, You seem very competant with this Notebook so perhaps HDD problem.
Have you tried removing checking for possible loose connections then returning it carefully in its caddy.
I'm not too familiar with the Acer models but had similar/same problems with Hp Nx 9010 and Nx 6125 both did exactly the same as yours right to the weird graphics.
I removed the hard drives carefully tightened the caddy screws AND made sure the protective Aluminium Foil protection around the HDD was wrapped correctly as one had a lip which was creased by the way the last person fitted it.
I replaced them very gently as not to bend pins or strain connections, yours maybe SATA so much easier.
Good Luck!

I have a fujitsu e8410 which will not start up properly, when i push the start button it shows power but then the fan comes on and the cap num and shift lock leds flash and nothing else. can you help?


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Your screen back light is dead. You may need to replace the inverter, or the whole screen.
This is a job for a carefull delicate person who knows what to do.

Hi, i have a problem with my Dell Inspirion 6400, after replacing Motherboard laptop won't boot up, after pressing power button, all 3 lights comes up (caps, num and scrl lock) and than back off, power...


I would hook up an external monitor to see if the laptop is working. If it is working fine then you must have a connection problem where the LCD plugs into the motherboard. I am willing to bet it is the LCD cable mot seated correctly. If it does not work on an external monitor try switching the memory chips one at a time if you have 2. Everything you mention indicates it is booting but no video. Good Luck Phil

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Power ON/ nothing on screen-


Hi,
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.
