I want diagram of acer extensa 2300 for trouble shooting

No power in it?

Meaning you are reading with a multimeter set to DC Voltage, and power IS at the DC Power Jack? (DC_IN)

You, of course, have checked the Voltage coming out of the AC adapter, (Charger), and have verified it is putting out the correct voltage?

19 Volts DC.

Then suggest you have a bad Power MOSFET, or two.
Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, for an example,

As you can see the Power MOSFET's in question, will be close to where the DC Power Jack is attached to the motherboard.

My ibm laptop's mother board cannot power on, please help me solve it

The most likely problem is that the onboard power supply has failed, usually a capacitor has burned out. Or it could be a loose DC supply socket (they only need to have one loose pin on the motherboard.)

Ard jack which iss it

If you can find a jack for that model then you can just see which hole on the board the center pin connects to. Positive is usually the biggest pin underneath in the center of the socket. The rest of the holes are usually

Acer ms2220 notebook is dead.want to know which component in the mother board is faulty

If the motherboard will not power up and will not charge it is either the AC adapter or the DC power jack on the motherboard. The DC power jack failing is quite common and it can seem like the whole motherboard is dead when only that is causing the issue. Search on google for DC power jack replacement and they can usually get you going without trouble.

Break bios password in acer 2420 travelmate laptop

remove the cover which has your power button and covers the LCD cables. Remove the keyboard and flip it over, being careful to not pull too hard on the cable. There's 2 small triangular silver connection pads beside the keyboard connector on the main board - connect them together and power on your computer (flat screwdriver works fine). Press the f2 key - you'll find it doesn't prompt you for a password. You can lift off the connections now. Go to exit and save changes, and you're password free.

Acer travelmate 5100 has a blank screen

The first problem; most likely is the board. try replacing the ram and dusting the inside out very thouroughly..especially near the cpu. you can also try running it with the adapter with no battery and see what happens.
2nd guy: your backlight in the screen is dead and generally its not cheap to fix. if you can find a used screena dn someone to put it in for cheap it might be ok but for now you can use the external monitor.
