Re: acer travelmate 292elcI problem starting

Hi guys,
I had the same problem, leaving the notebook "dead" for about one year - now I found the solution on a spanish (latin american) site : Remove power cord & battery , open case on backside where DIMM-modules (RAM) are placed - then remove firdt module & shortcut "J1" with screwdriver or similar (just a second is enough) - snap in RAM-module again, close cover , inser battery & plug on power cord - that´s it ! The notebook is now running, maybe plugging off agan after few minutes, but if powered on again (just press power-button!) it will run like before the error occured ! Will let it run over night to see if it´s stable & keep You updated !

CU, P64

Re: acer travelmate 292elcI problem starting

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)

If a warning light indicates the CPU is not functioning, does that mean I have to get a new processor?

Yes! judging by all the cascade break downs, I would suggest replacing the motherboard, HP has a history with motherboard issues.

I've got an Acer Travelmate 292LMI. My problem is: the notebook starts (leds on) for only a few seconds (I can see the acer display that preceeds the boot) but immediately it is dead. Only the AC leds...

It could be an overheating CPU problem.
When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I just want to know to turn on my TravelMate Laptop computer. I want to where the start button is? Simply as that.

You will find a key that has C facing upwards with an I in it. This is the power on it lightly. Three LEDs will turn green for a moment and then some more LEDs with start blinking. And finally you will get the Windows desk top.

Donot startup


Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 1 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing & start the system.

Restart the system.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem

I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
