Question about Acer TravelMate 2423WXCi Laptop

1 Answer

I have an ACER Travelmate 2423wxci Celeron machine that just will not boot up properly. It boots up for a few seconds and clicks off. It does not stay on long enough for me to get into the BIOS. I ruled out the battery and power cord because it does the same in either case. I pulled the HDD to see if it was the the HDD but it still shuts down after it reads No OS found. It cycles on and off continuously. After awhile the exhaust port builds up a generous amount of heat. I checked the RAM and it is still installed securely. It will not stay on long enough to get into Windows XP. Please help. Thank you very much in advance.

    I have opened the notebook. the fan and ports are clean and clear. It has been dormant for over 24hrs. The "on" time did not last longer. It cycles through every couple seconds turning on then off. It did make it to the screen that asks which mode to boot in (safe, last, etc), then cycles off again. It does heat up rather quickly still by the exhaust port after only seconds of cycling. Is there a way to pinpoint which components needs to be swapped out?. Thank you again.

Overheated... could have fried the video card, processor, or motherboard.

Try cleaning out the vents with a can of compressed air... the heat may have fried something.. but cleaning it is necessary to diagnose.

Leave it untouched overnight... does it work for a longer amount of time? If it works for longer, then it is overheating and needs cleaning. Need to clear out the dust built up inside the heatsink and fan. If you can dis-assemble it, then do that... otherwise blow air into the vented ports to loosen the dust bunnies.

If cleaning it doesn't change anything, then you will need to replace some parts... motherboard, processor, or video card.

Good Luck

I was given this Laptop and the password does not work. How do I bypass it?


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

Try holding down the Function key (Fn), then pressing F5. Wait a few seconds. On most laptop, each press of the F5 key will toggle between laptop display only, projector only and Dual (same image on both - my favorite).

You'll probably see a little Monitor-shaped icon on the F5 key. It's possible it's another function key - on Dells it's usually F8.

Recovery disk will not help u make ur notebook facotry fit
First u need to get a full version Windows install CD
try piratebay.org

it will get u the full working version of any Win OS
google search "Torrent piratebay Windows XP"
u also need to get/install BitTorrent software from google/internet to get the torrent link file...
the full file of WinOS say 400 - 700 mb may be a ISO file that u need to burn to a CD so that u can boot from the disk and install windows
visit my site (FormatDisk page)
www.sureshayyar.110mb.com for a full detail on how to do it

Acer travelmate 3210


Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series
and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI

like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.

there was no need to update Bios
now in case your laptop is turning on
Please try to start in the Safe mode
and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode.
Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please
try to reinstall the Windows Xp

and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of.
do not try unless it is MOST required
