Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
Hi All, when I press start button the laptop starts as normal,the sound is also normal,but it hang after few second,nothing apears on the screen.The start ligt glow too.what i found abnormal was the cd drive light also glows when I start,I feel as if it is try to read CD which is not there in the drive and it hangs. I believe the CD light should not glow while starting. I tried the trick to remove battery and CD drive and put that back again couple of time and it started for me few time. I noted that the CD drive light was not glowing when it started. As for now that trick is not working. Can any one help on this problem. Thanks NAvsum
I believe these are BIOS indicators on some type of motherboards This could be a motherboard or memory problem. What happens if you remove some or all memory?

I just had the identical problem and solved it by moving the single memory module to the other slot.
