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?

Sounds like your video is bad or the laptop is not getting power from the ac adapter or battery. Make sure your ac adapter power cord is good.

Turn off notebook. Remove the battery. Press Power button. Notebook should start working. Wait for 15 secs. If the screen still blank press Power button and hold it for approx. 4 seconds until notebook is powered off. Then press power button again. Bingo, problem should be solved.

BIOS wont start

Check the battery voltage. The battery may have failed and is overloading the AC pwer supply.

Black, cannot boot up... etc.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on

If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.

Acer will not start up properly; "pulsing" On and Off

Hi Melody, Try removing the battery with the AC unplug for a couple of minutes (an hour preferably). Try with just the AC adapter only with no battery and see if it works; try with the battery only and see if it works, try with both the battery and the AC adapter and see if it works. If none of the above will make it work, then you have probably a hardware issue or BIOS power saving issue. Post back results of the 3 tries and will figure something else. Good luck and kind regards.
