Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Notebook troubleshooting I have an Acer Aspire 9300 Series Notebook that won't hold power long enough to boot up. It was bought used without the factory issued power cord. I examined the back panel and the only thing not present I think is a pci card. This however isn't a requirement for boot, or am I wrong? Also can I use a different power cord & if so any ideas what I should use? It takes a 19 volt 4,74A DC charger.The Model No. on the sticker is MS2195. Thanx , [email protected]

    I'm having the same problem, only I use an Acer Extense 4420. When I turn the computer on, the screen stays black, the power light turns green, but then the computer shuts itself off. I've tried everything I know to do.

You can use any generic power supply which will give 19V at at least 4.5A. IIRC there are a number which do 19V at 5A available from any largish online electronics retailer (I'm in the UK so I don't know who in Canada would be good for this). I presume by pci card you mean PCMCIA (now often called simple "PC"). No, you don't need that to boot it. However, if there is a card missing from the back of the machine, that's a little worrying - PC card slots are usually on the side. There are a few laptops which really do have a mini PCI slot but that also doesn't normally need anything in it for the the machine to boot.

Acer aspire 4339 wont turn on with new battery


That means the laptop is not detecting the battery as authentic or full enough to boot the laptop. Most batteries are now smart batteries, so the battery you bought may be an aftermarket battery not supported by the laptop. Return it and cite the issue.

My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable
