Question about Acer TravelMate 2480-2968 Notebook
Notebook only about 1 month old no known damage, when plugged into AC there is no charging light/will not turn on(power light comes on solid for a few sec then goes back out again), Tried power reset sequence no results, took apart to check ac adapter connection, not a direct solder to board seems ok. Not the power pack, tried another same output parameters no result, tried that pack on my other laptop works fine. Stumped about where to check now. Thanks
I have problem with my acer travelmate 2480-2968. For some reason it will not charge or come on at all. The green light that is on the battery charger seems to work just fine, but it will not charge up. So I just brought a new battery for the computer and the battery had a lil energy to it so I use that battery and put it in the laptop and it power on just fine, but the same problem it will not stay charge. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be and how can I fix it. I can't send it back because I do not have a warranty on it. If there is anything i can do to make the battery stay charge please let me know. Thank you for you suggestion.

If the Notebook is only 1 month old i suggest you bring it back and see if they will replace it. Most likely the problem (for how you have explained it) is that the DC power pin (inside the notebook) is either broken or not soldered to the mother board correctly.
Being only one month old this is probably a faulty pin or installation from the manufacturer so this should not be a problem for the place you got it from to replace.
If you do have problems I suggest contacting the manufacture immediately to see if they will replace it.
I hope this helped
Have a great day.
