Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook

Acer Travelmate 290

My laptop has not been dropped or bumped- when I power it on while it is running off the battery it sounds like its trying to read from the cd drive but it just keeps rebooting - when its plugged into a power source it pulls up a screen advising to start in safe mode. Any ideas?

My Travelmate 290 series is not working...


Try taking the memory out and then put it back in making sure it seated correctly then start using AC power lead it's probably caused by letting the battery get too low before recharging.Use a start up disc to get it going if you have to. Good luck

No power when at switch on


Sounds like the power socket on the laptop may have broken loose from the board. Very common. If you have a multimeter, try and check the voltage ont the tines where the main battery receives it's charge, with the ac adapter connected to the laptop. That will tell a lot. Good luck
