Question about Acer TravelMate 2480-2968 Notebook

1 Answer

I am having a problem with my acer travelmate 2480-2968 Laptop. For some reason it will not turn on and the green light on the charger works fine, when I plug the charger into the computer the yellow light comes on(let me know that the battery is low) but it still not charging at all. I don't know if it something wrong with the computer or the battery.

Test the power pack with a multimeter.  If it is not giving out the correct voltage, then your power pack is bad.  If it is good, replace the battery.

    Get yourself a multimeter.  Set it for 20Volts or the next setting higher than what reads on the power supply unit.  Take the red lead and stick it in the middle of plug, the end of the cord that goes into your computer.  Touch the black lead to the outside of that same plug.  If it does not read the voltage indicated on the tech lable of the power supply unit, it is shot.  If you are still unsure, you can take it to your local radioshack or best buy and they will test it for you.

I have an acer 8371 not charging

it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue ( Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

If you can confirm your laptop charger is dead, just purchase a new one:

I have Acer T2300 laptop. Now where i start it after two or three days, i face problem it did start. Charger light is on but on laptop power light is also off. I show it in repairing center but they it is...

sounds like an over heating issue. i would try turning it on with battery first then plug it in or vs versa turn it on with just power cable not batter then add battery. since you did say it did turn back on i would also be worried about a loose connection for power from the cord to the pc and clean the battery terminals.

Acer Notebook 4330 No Power/No Charge


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.
