Question about Acer TravelMate 3260-4874 Notebook

1 Answer

Help! Laptop is dead, no power

I have an Traverlmate 3260 when i plugged the ac power, i notices my laptop was off, now putting the ac plug again, however it never turned ON at all, no signs of life, no LED or light indicators at all. I tried removing the plug and turned ON again, same thing happens. These time I tried to remove the battery and put the plug, same thing, no power supply at all, no signs of life at all. Nothing comes on. I still think it is a power supply problem. Has someone got an answer?

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

Power problems


Unplug the AC adapter (Charger) from power. Unplug the AC adapter from the laptop.
Remove the Battery.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
(And I mean 10. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..etc)

Reinstall the Battery. Plug the AC adapter back in. Plug the AC adapter into power.

(ALWAYS plug the AC adapter into the laptop FIRST, then plug the AC adapter into power.
Why?
To avoid a voltage spike at the laptop)

WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

Still no?

Then the AC adapter needs to be checked, to see if it is putting out the correct voltage.

Don't know, Model Number wasn't stated.

AC adapter checks out, then it is on to the DC Power Jack.
The jack on the laptop (DC_IN) that the AC adapter plugs into.
What style?

Don't know the Model Number wasn't stated.

DC Power Jack checks out, then I suggest you have a problem with a Power MOSFET,

(Model Number is on the Bottom of the laptop. Plus, this IS a Dell, right?)

Wont turn on


1.Plug the Inspiron's AC power cord into a power outlet and try to power on the laptop again. By far the most common cause of a laptop's not powering on is a dead battery.
2.Plug the AC adapter into a different outlet to check for a "dead" outlet. If you have the cable plugged into a surge protector, plug the cord into a different slot on the surge protector or "bypass" the surge protector by plugging the cable into an electrical outlet. If the Inspiron now powers on, replace the surge protector or have an electrician examine any "dead" outlets in the home.
3.Open the battery bay on the underside of the Inspiron by sliding the battery bay latch release lock upward and the battery bay latch release to the right. Once both latches are released, the battery bay should open.
4.Remove the battery.
5.Purchase a compatible replacement battery for laptop. Be aware that using an incompatible battery can cause damage to your computer. If you have any doubt as to compatibility, the best option is to purchase the replacement battery directly from your laptop's manufacturer.
6.Install the new battery by following the battery-removal procedure in reverse order. Once the new battery is installed, try again to power on the laptop. If there is still no power, seek professional repair advice.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Dear Sir,

By analysing your problem it seems to be your adapter dead.So first check your adapter,so your laptop battery may not have backup to turn on the laptop.

Could be the power supply. (Likely built into the power cord). Heat could have been causing it to fail before. Possibly dead now!

Toshiba satilite P100...wont turn of


Try these:

1. Can you plug something else besides your laptop into the outlet...verify you have power?

2. Is there a light on your AC adapter...when you plug it in?

3. Try removing your battery and plugging it in, and verify that your AC adapter is working (somehow, if it has no indicator light)

4. Then unplug it, put the battery back in and see if it will start.

Let us know what happens after you try these.

Acer Laptop Does not power ON At All!


Either the laptop has gone bad or the power supply has gone bad. You could buy a universal power supply at Best Buy, test your unit and then return the power supply. Not very moral thing to do but it will tell you if its the supply or the laptop. If it is the supply then you'll have a spare.
