Acer N30 battery problem (even new battery does not last enough)

My ACER N30 have developed the problem of quick battery discharge. The power meter keeps shrinking. I replaced the battery with the new one, problem fixed only upto 25% extend. Earlier the battery ( that I used for 18 months) diminised in 5 minutes in 'on' mode, now the powerbar in brand new fully charged acer battery  is empty in say 15 minutes of 'on' condition. ( & appx 4 hours in absolutely 'off' condition).


What could be wrong?

Try checking your power saving options, you can drop down the backlight a little lower to extend battery life. Also you can lower down the volume of the system sound and check if the bluetooth is on, then turn it off. Recharge it and then check if the battery life extends. You also need to occasionally soft-reset the n30

This happens when you get new one or after reset. It wants from you, to touch 5 points on the screen to calibrate touch screen.
Start acer without connecting usb cable and calibrate it first.

Acer n30 Screen Tap Freeze

Sounds as if the touch screen membrane is defective, which is a darned nuisance, but not impossible to fix .... if you are confident of dismantling the n30, you can buy a new touch screen membrane from Ebay for about 4 pounds/6 dollars.
It is a very skilful job to remove the old touch membrane from the actual display screen below it, not really for a novice, and all internal components are very delicate, so i suggest you find a tame technician before you buy the new membrane. The touch membrane connects to the motherboard via a tiny flexible 4 or 5 pin membrane ribbon cable, it's a miracle of miniature engineering inside the n30, so do ve very careful if you decide to do it yourself, best of luck!

My n30 can't charge, but turns on under charging

hi, I had the same problem so i checked some other forums. I then found the answer. While your acer is plugged in, hard reset it, this switch is on the bottom of the machine. Switch the hard reset thing to the left for five secs, then back to the right. The green light should start flashing! You just fixed you acer!
