Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
Hi again, this is an update on my computer. the store told me that they could not fix my problem because they suspected that it was a problem with a fractured or loose mainboard. they said that it mayhave been a a crack from usual everyday wear and tear, or that the soldering on the mainboard has come loose. that is why my computer works somtimes then it doesn't work at all, because of the pressure i applyed to the mainboard. the knock mayhave finally moved it out of place or somthing. the only way i can fix my computer is to get the whole thing replaced or 're soldered' -IF it is a soldering problem.
it costs wayy too much to replace the main board, it is like 500 for the main board, 90 for the quote, and 300 for the actual labour. that's like 890 dollars, and thats just not worth it. you're better of buying a new computer. just recover all your work by putting your hard disk onto a external casing.
anyway that was my update. i hope it has helped you.

Depending on how big the knock was it could have been severe enough to damage your hard drive. The boot up of the machine hence the fan is caused by the CPU heating and the fan cooling it however when the bios and CPU ask the hard drive to boot up it cannot thus that is the failure of your startingup. It may need the attention of serviceman to repair it and even he may suggest a replacement of the hard drive.
