Hi,

Remove the AC power jack and then the battery. Hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds, that will drain any residual power from the laptop.

Then just plug in AC power only and try to boot the laptop up. If it boots let it load Windows and then shut it down. Remove the AC power jack and then re-insert the battery. Then try to boot the laptop up.

If it boots up you all good.

If this does not work please post back.



Good luck.

Everex lm7w will not power on no lights


Are you using the right charger for that laptop?
a: if so them discard question
b: if not there are chances that you busted the mobo or that the charger doesn't have enough volts to power the machine.

other possible reasons the ac jack is bad, it happens occasionally even so is not that common, or you have a bad motherboard (mobo) if that is the case you will need to replace the mobo, good thing they can be bought for cheap at E-Bay's or Amazon.

I don't see other cause since there is only power on the ac adapter and not on the machine.

Screen doesn't come on power indicator light on when plugged in, any suggestions?


1) Unplug AC adapter (Charger) from surge protector strip. Unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug AC adapter back into power, then plug back into laptop.

No?

Then the AC adapter needs to be checked.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-ADAPTER-CHARGER-Everex-Stepnote-NM3500W-NM3900W-bfj-/390447149498?pt=Laptop_Adapters_Chargers&hash=item5ae876b1ba

The AC adapter converts high 100 to 240 Volts AC, from your home or business; into 19 Volts DC. (19VDC)

Looking at the AC adapter example above, the plug end that plugs into the laptop; has two connections;

1) The Center Hole is the Positive connection.
2) The outside cylindrical metal shell is the Negative connection.

Using a multimeter to check;
Set the Function knob to DC Voltage. If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line.
If there is more than one DC Voltage scale, set the Function knob to the 0-50 Volt DC scale. (0 to 50 Volt)

The Positive (Red) probe lead goes to the Center Hole.
The Negative (Black) probe lead goes to the cylindrical metal shell.
You should be reading 19 Volts (DC)

Have an assistant gently wiggle the cable FROM AC adapter TO laptop.
Also have the assistant gently wiggle the power cable FROM surge protector TO AC adapter.
Fluctuation in reading on multimeter; indicates a broken wire, in one of those cables.

Replace AC adapter if so.
Not 19 Volt reading? Replace AC adapter.

[An economical multimeter can be purchased, for as little as $5 to $12. An auto parts store is but one place to puchase one. I have seen them on checkout aisle racks, in major discount stores.

I can guide you step by step with it, if you post the manufacturer name, and model number of the multimeter.
Skittish about measuring the voltage? Worried about shock?
I understand. However, I wish you to know that two D cell flashlight batteries, store 3 Volts DC. You will be measuring for 19 Volts DC.

Or take the AC adapter to the nearest small computer shop. The resident tech should only charge a couple of bucks, to test it for you]

AC adapter checks out?
Then the diagnosis goes on.
(Or you may wish to skip to the next step, and perform it first)

DC Power Jack:
The DC Power Jack is the jack on the laptop, that the AC adapter plugs into.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Everex-StepNote-NM3500W-Motherboard-WORKING-/230663580965?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b49eed25

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, you are looking at a Bottom view. The Processor, and Ram Memory are on the Bottom of the motherboard.

There are two silvery looking ports, on the BOTTOM/Left corner.
The one all the way to the Left, is the Ethernet port.
Next to it on the right; is the DC Power Jack.

Another look at the jack not installed;

http://powerjack.us/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=105&products_id=13456

Great! Can't find an exact listing for an Everex NM3500w DC Power Jack.
However the above example mounts the same. The connecting prongs (pins) on bottom, may be in a different pattern, though.

Click on the photo to enlarge.
This shows a bottom view of the jack. The rounded tipped prongs go through holes in the motherboard, and are soldered on the opposite side.

The prong all the way in the back of the jack, left side; goes to the Center Pin. The Center Pin is the Positive connection.
The prong coming up from it in the middle, is for the Negative connection. It goes to the contact/s surrounding the inner hole, in the jack. (Inner hole around the Center Pin)

Battery removed, AC adapter removed; see if you can gently move the Center Pin, using an eraser on the end of a No.2 pencil.

ANY perceptible movement means the DC Power Jack needs to be replaced.
If it seems the entire jack itself moves, problem may just be a cracked solder joint, or joints. Or may be a bad power jack.

A cracked solder joint will make an intermittent contact, or No contact at all; of DC Power Jack TO motherboard.
Battery will not receive power, laptop will not turn on.

Power On LED indicator is on? Means nothing really. Uses way less than 1 Watt of power to light that LED. (Light Emitting Diode)
A cracked solder joint could allow that much power, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

DC Power Jack seems fine, from this simple cursory test?
You really have to disassemble the laptop, remove the motherboard, and check; to be sure.

See if by gently wiggling the Body of the DC Power Jack, if there is any perceptible movement.
Use a bright light, and magnifying glass; to carefully scrutinize for a cracked solder joint.

AC adapter checks out? DC Power Jack checks out? Next in line are the Power MOSFET's.
Now we are talking board level component replacement; (SMD's), Or motherboard replacement.

!O_O!
Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's; for info about Power MOSFET's in the charging/power section, of the laptop's motherboard. (DC to DC Circuit),

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

Cost exceeds repairing laptop feasibly, and you need to retain the information on the Harddrive?
Suggest removing harddrive, and installing in an economical external enclosure.

The harddrive resides in a Harddrive Caddy. A sheet metal enclosure. Then both are installed in the laptop. The sheet metal Harddrive Caddy is removed, so the Harddrive can be installed in the external enclosure.

Don't know what technology the Harddrive uses.
Do not know if it is an IDE (PATA) unit, or a SATA unit.
DO KNOW that it is a laptop harddrive, and will be 2.5 inches across in Width.

(2 and 1/2 Inches)

Once the Harddrive is removed, you can look the model number up on the internet, and see if it is an IDE, or SATA unit.

[IDE is referred to as PATA also. Parallel ATA.
SATA is Serial ATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA ]

You can also post back here with the Harddrive's model number, and I can find the information out for you.

IDE (PATA) example;

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1086960&CatId=2782

(Scroll down)

SATA example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5601768&CatId=2783

Scroll down)

Reviews I found on the 'net were few, and lacking. One's for sale on places like Ebay, give sketchy information on what the laptop even looks like.
However I believe I can guide in disassembling, if you wish.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Cannot turn on my laptop only the start button light turns on but no screen display and a few noises help


This is only the first of many things you may need to do to determine the fault. But it is a process for determining the exact cause.


Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.


If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.

  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

This seems like a poor soldering job at the factory which has become loose/disconnected over time, affecting the power port the ac adapter plugs into. Take the laptop to the shop and have your power jack inspected.

Disconnect the ac adapter and take out the battery. Next press the power button and hold it for 20 seconds. Then, connect the ac adapter and attempt to turn it on.

If it turns on, reinstall your battery and try again. If it does not turn when you reinstall the battery then it's your battery.

If it does not turn on without the battery, then it's either your ac adapter or your dc jack. You can check the ac adapter at a local pc shop or electronics store. If it's the dc jack then you have the option of ordering it on-line and replacing it yourself or have someone else do it. Good luck and let me know how it went.

Travelmate only powers up with battery inserted. But AC still charges battery. Orange light goes on and of


Sorry to tell you this but you may have a problem with the charging system. That will require you to return it to Acer or an Acer service center. You can also try this. I got this from Acers' travelmate support website:

If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
You can aslo google your specific model of Travelmate to see if others are having this issue.

Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.
