Laptops don't powerup either because the battery isn't full, or it isn't plugged to the mains using the lead. if you think the above is fine then it must be because the laptops isn't accepting power in, either because of the motherboard has died, the chips have burned or the power button is faulty. if it's working using the battery but not using the charger then you need a DC socket repair. if it's plugged to the mains but there is no sign of any lights you're likely to have lost your motherboard. if your laptop does start but you see nothing on the screen its usualy the memory ram or the screen or the motherboard, plug it into an external screen and see what happens

this isn't something you can find a solution for in here, the best way is to take it to your repair shop
an independent one will do, or else I recommend a website which collects it and does it for you

I hope this helps. Please rate me.

Remove the main battery and the power supply, allow several minutes to get rid of any residual charge, now plug the power supply adapter back in and press power "leave battery out" is there any change? if not! remove power supply, now! press and hold power for 60 seconds to reset the laptop.

Not powering up. even when plugged in overnight. no power.


hi there,

try to unplug every thing connected to the laptop, even the power supply. Now disconnect the battery. Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Reconnect the battery and power to the unit. now try to power on the machine.

You should be good to go.

In case that you still face the issue, i would recomend that you should visit the service center.

ACER TRAVEL MATE 2480 WILL POWER ON BUT SCREEN REMAINS BLANK.


look close to the screen and see if there is a faint picture. if there is then read below for the issues and solutions that can cause this problem.

Issue 1: Lid button sticking

this is a common issue with this model that the lid button sticks closed. fiddle with it to see if it opens and the light comes on.

issue 2: Inverter for the monitor is bad

this is not to uncommon an issue when this problems shows itself. Laptops monitors light up with a fluorescent bulb. This is powered by an inverter. These can go bad and if they do the light will not turn on. you need to take this to a service station. i don't recommend trying to replace without knowledge of this. They are high powered and you can hurt yourself or damage the screen

issue 3: fluorescent bulb went bad

this is usually the least common but could have happened. usually happens when peopel spray their screen with cleaner and it drips down inside the bottom. This can be fixed by a service center but coudl get costly. best bet is buy a new screen.
