Acer TravelMate 4502LCi Not booting as far as BIOS

My laptop turns on, the fan is whiring, the lights on the front come on, but nothing else.  No screen at all and no boot.  I have tried turning it on with each F Key pressed, and still nothing.  I have tried removing the HDD, the CD Rom Drive, the memory and the battery, but still nothing.  I suspect for some reason the BIOS is not kicking in.  Anyone know of a way of resetting this?  PLEASE!???

    booting problem

  • Anonymous Mar 21, 2014

    I need to get into the bios so I can change the boot order, but it will not allow me. I've taken the hdd out, took the bios battery out and power drained the system. I've held f2 and f10 as I powered it on. I've pressed f2 or f10 after I powered it on. I've taken out the cd rom. I've exhausted all the options I know of. It just boots straight from the splash screen straight to no OS found. And yes I checked, the keyboard is functional.

Hi, normally if you are unable to boot up to BIOS your laptop will sound a number of beeps to tell you that something is wrong, So if you are not hearing any beeps and something is happening on your laptop then I think you could be right and the cmos settings of your BIOS have gotten corrupted.
The only way to reset your BIOS settings without being logged on is to physically remove the battery from the motherboard.
If when you replace it it still doesnt boot up, try replacing the battery with a new one.

Hope this helps.

My acer travelmate 4200 starts up and then shuts off


Try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink recently? Do you get to any screen? BIOS setup? Boot Menu? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord?

Icant get my acer travelmate to boot from cd


You need to set the BIOS configuration to boot from the CD.

I'm not sure how the Travelmate enters the BIOS (Setup), it could be the F1, F2, ESC or DEL ket after the ACER logo and before the Windows logo appear on the screen. When the BIOS opens, go to the Config page, set the CD to be the first boot device.

Where to insert a camera memory stick in acer travelmate 4502lci laptop


according to the acer site..
these are usually on one side or the other. the issue here is whether your camera memory stick is same size as their slots. you may need to get an adapter. careful about forcing that mem stick into a slot that's not good to go.

Acer travelmate 3210


Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series
and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI

like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.

there was no need to update Bios
now in case your laptop is turning on
Please try to start in the Safe mode
and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode.
Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please
try to reinstall the Windows Xp

and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of.
do not try unless it is MOST required

Acer will not start travelmate 4000 series


does it pass the BIOS tests ?! if so, than u have to boot with a bootable cd to install the OS (new hard drive)

if it does not pass the BIOS tests, or gives errors, try reseting the BIOS, set it to the default settings ...

u can also recheck all connections (cdrom, mems, hard ....) and if the batteries pins have a good connection when pluged in the laptop...

give more details of what is wrong with it ... does the screen even get a image on it ... !?
