Its a digital volt meter which also has other options. its useless when it comes to motherboards because it doesnt test caps and diods
only voltage, wiring and pos and neg detection

Acer 4320 won't power up


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test your acer travelmate 4320 ac adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

My acer travelmate 240 dose not have sound


Ever consider to see if headphone jack works? If this is the case it is possible it is the speaker.

Sound card or similar is possible but an expert should be the only one to look for that.

Acer 2310 travelmate, power button will not go on. There is no sound of a fan. It is in effect dead. Tried different outlet with no improvement. Unplugged everything and replugged it in.


ok, if there is no indecation that there is any power, I mean even no instant flash when you first try turning it on... sometime the power plug in the back gets loose inside. or the power adapter dies... I would try gently weglling the power plug while looking at the lights if anything happen then it is the plug. if nothing then I would try to test the adapter either by a multimeter or borrowing another adapter and seeing what happend... also try disconnecting the power and take the battery out, wait few seconds then put the battery back, then the adapter (all while looking at the lights) then try again.. still if nothing then it maybe the main board itself... best of luck

Travelmate dont switch on when i connect my adapter. even no led glows when the adapter connected. tried a new adapter still not working send me ur valuable suggestions to sheku1984@gmail.com


Remove your pc battery and try connecting directly to AC supply via your adapter. If you have a multimeter, you could measure your adapter's potential difference to be sure of the right voltage output ok. If nothing happened here, then you should open the pc's RAM compartment and remove the RAM(s). Re-install them properly and test one after another. You could also get a fully charged compatible battery and test alone, ie, without AC this time. If all these didn't work, then the culprit is the power unit. Good luck.

A multimeter is a device that tests electrical properties of various devices and components. You use the multimeter to test the voltage of the adapter to see if is working and gives the correct voltage that your laptop requires.
