Acer TravelMate 290 PC Notebook not starting

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.

My laptop was hanged from last one hour how to start of samsang compeny


If I understand correctly; your laptop is hanging( hung in a loop ) and unable to function. I suggest a "Hard Shutdown". This will allow the computer to restart. Press and hold down the laptop's power button for approximately 15 seconds. The laptop should power off then press the power button normally and it will restart. Start up may take longer especially if you are using a Windows Operating System. The Operating System may detect that there was a problem and will attempt to correct. Simply follow the onscreen prompts. Good Luck.

I when i turn on my acer 4150, apears the main logo from acer, but the keyb do not work, after a few seconds apears a black screen and starts a continuously beep, then i have to turn off becouse the noise


I have same problem before, it is because my laptop keyboard was stuck. Try to remove your laptop keyboard and turn the laptop without keyboard. If its run normally, you should replace your keyboard with a new one.

I do have a dell laptop, but last night it hangs up den i cannot turn it off already so i'd just let the battery empty, i recharge it wen i woke up in the morning den it says the computer was not shut down...


I second what computus suggested, but I believe you'll have to press F8 repeatedly during boot instead of ESC or Del button. Boot up in safe mode and it should be able to restore things :-)
