    I am also having trouble with my Acer Travelmate 2702WLMi when I turn on the laptop it stops charging and drains the battery away, I have to keep turning it off to charge up again. Does anyone have any ideas, I have just bought a new adapter and it hasn't made any difference.

    regards Sue

    I have a Acer Travelmate 2702WLMi Laptop and when I turn it on connected to the power supply the battery doesn't charge and the battery power goes down again, yet when I switch it off again it starts charging the battery again. I have bought a new power adapter but this hasn't made any difference. Does anyone have any clues on whats wrong with it.

I got the same troubles with the @#$# acer here, and even worse in greece the acer service REALLY sucks volks, after changing first the battery, then the charger, then doing an exhaustinginvestigationover nearly all the motherboard i gaveit up, throwed it into the old garbage pc corner where it belongs and bought an decent one, got the toshiba for double the money as the #$@@!! acer but it runs and runs and runs,never no more troubles ( p.s. this was my 6th acer with problems like that...and no,i'mnot a toshiba co-worker, just an frustrated systems-engineer who got that way by worthless hardware like that)

    The battery pack for my 2700 was the fault @ last volks;

    checked it with battery-meter prog; which als measures the life cycles the bat already went through; new bat capacity: approx. 59.000mW; approx now: 19.000mW; so itseasy, motherboard chipset checksbat status; receives false response from bat; stops immidiately chargingto avoid overload...End of the fun, end of story.

    Download battery reset tool from HP; reset bat; recalibrate your bat and restart.

    As for the recalibrate,

    a. keep the startbutton pushed without charger connection min.10 sec.

    b. release button, laptop comesup;

    c. insert charger-connector.

    d. boot-cycle & restart again.

    e. bat status indicator shows charging & ok.

    Done until the next 1000 charge-cycles.

    Try to read your documentation with the bat. Often there are simple steps about charging your bat correctly.

Don't buy a battery or an adapter just change the DC power jack and voilà. Ask a professional to do it

PS: If you need a cheap one just go to e-bay.

My laptop wont turn on

I think your battery or your whole motherboard is fried. Does it make any noises? Do the fans start to run? Try unplugging your battery and only keeping your charger in.

Acer travelmate 2700 bios password and where is the CMOS battry on the mother board

Hi there,

your bios battery is soldered into the mainboard, its under the keyboard, next to the modem board and the bios chip itself.


In order to get to the battery you would first have to dissasemble the laptop, remove the keyboard, power buttons, and the top of the machine. You may also have to remove the display if its holding the top of the cover in place.

Removing the battery is no guarantee of reseting the password. You need to study the bios chip and find out which pins of it you need to short in order to reset its memory. In some cases the password might be stored on another chip.

It wont run of the mains, it will charge the battery and then run but once i start up it runs of the battery even if plugged in to mains

The power supply adapter needs to be checked to make sure it is putting out the full rated power under load.

Blank screen although power light on and fan running.


Please force shut down the unit if it still is on. Then, press the power button and see if it starts up.

If that doesn't work, then please disconnect everything from the unit (Battery and A/C) and Reseat the RAM and recheck.

Travelmate 2700 will run on AC from power supply but will not charge battery. Have fitted new battery

so most likely the problem on a faulty battery because the battery will not accept a charge or charging.

Acer Travelmate 4060. Dead. Flashes power/battery led once when I hit the power button then nothing

Try removing the battery and plugging the machine in as if you were going to charge it, then try starting it up.

If it doesn't start up, check the connections on the adapter. If everything looks fine then theres a possibility that you have a broken adapter.
