Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

2 Answers

Laptop My copmuter is 4 years old, an Acer. Before the warrenty ran out 2 years ago, it was telling me to switch over to an A/C outlet, and I was already on an A/C outlet. I sent it in to tigerdirect, they fixed the problem, and I upgrade my laptop about a year and a 1/2 ago. It is now doing exactly the same thing again. I'm plugged in to the wall, it lasts about 20 minutes before shutting down to recharge.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

Acer 5920 wont turn on, we bought an extended

This is a common problem with Acers but usually it is the battery and the adapter. Replace the battery as well as the adapter and you shouldn't have any issues. Surges can be the main cause for this or running the laptop hot has also been the culprit.

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow

This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.
