Acer travelmate does not work from battery

My Travelmate 8106WLMi Pentium M780 shuts down when I remove the power cable. If I try to start up from battery, the orange battery indicator just flickers and it does not start. I replaced the battery with a new one but still same problem. The Acer Powerm management screen sometimes shows 96% battery life remaining and somtimes 0%.

All of a sudden The screen also goes red, pink or in all shades and lines of red until I press somewhere on the body then it remains ok for a while. However, the colors are right on an external monitor.

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on

First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

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.

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.

Battery status LED blinkings amber

Try removing the power cable and battery, while these are removed press and hold the power button on the laptop for 30 seconds. this is called a hard reset, what it does is drains any residual power in the laptop. if this does not work, that means there is an issue with the motherboard. to have it sent in would cost about $398, give or take.

It could also be the CPU "heat sensor" causing a "thermal" shutdown.
Try a hairdryer on cold blow, and point it in where the CPU cooler is!

see does the laptop stay on longer. Thermal paste dosen't usualy "go" unless the heat sink has be detached from the CPU.

I think as you say either the fan or I think the heat sensor.

Travelmate 2310 keyboard and touchpad problem

Boot up the system (without the battery).
When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies *
Wait till the systems shuts down by itself.
Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine.
Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay.
You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.
