    Same problem , without 2 led at top and 3 at bottom flash half a second and nothing happens, even no fan!

    Manual found on internet say , if power is about 20 volts and if battery is above 10 volts then it must be main board! I tested voltage these are ok !what a pity! Interested in what you find!

I opened my travelmate 290 that have a terrible noice when I turn on, and I think is the motherboard, I need a new one, or some used one. If someone know about a similar problem let me know please! Daniel.

Good Morning,
Okay, so if you're getting a constant loud beep when you power the computer on, it's quite likely your motherboard. The only thing you can check for without replacing the board all together is if your processor is overheating.
The best thing to do at this point is to bring your computer to a service depot or someone who is skilled in replacing parts and can test hardware inside your laptop.
I wish you the best of luck with this!

Acer travelmate 290 error

Use another Bootable Disk Operating System to see it as may be the same problem you have. I think it's your Installer Disk have a problem.
From this problem it's windows system failure to show display appearance normally.
At least you try just one installing another Bootable Disk.
Good luck!
