Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer 3500 series wont turn on.

Hi i dont know whats wrong, it was working one day and the next it wont turn on. i just got a new battery for it and it was working perfectly. the only sign of life i can get from it is when i take out the battery and put it back in. for five seconds it sounds like it will boot up but then it makes a beep shuts down. it doesnt even stay on long enough for the screen to turn on. i thought it might be a bad battery so i took it off and plugged it in with the power cord and it still does the same thing. i was just wondering what would be the problem and if its fixable.

if you activity lights on, try connecting to an external monitor or modern flat screen tv. if the screen is flashing then it is probably a screen issue. eg the invertor r screen has failed.

Hi !

The battery is not compatible with your laptop or maybe defective. As you mention, you purchase this battery and I believe they will replace the battery. Just show them the problem and insist that the battery you purchase is not charging, sure they will replace it.

I hope this help you. Good luck.

My Acer Aspire 9300 laptop wont turn on......light indicators are on (motherboard light blinks once, light bulb and battery lights on) but no power to fans so no start up. have had this happen before but...

Very possible that something has short circuited on the motherboard. I would also try re-seating the memory located on the bottom of the laptop(which could be loose explaining the intermittent nature of the issue). On an IBM I once fixed that had the same issue I took out the CMOS battery and battery for one week and then re-installed and that fixed the issue. But good luck to you!

Acer aspire laptop won't charge

First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.

Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

remove the battery and see it the power comes on, if so bad battery, check the connector where the power plugs into the laptop, sometime this breaks or has a cold solder joint, you can test this by wiggling and looking to see if the power lights up. last and worst case is a bad main board.
