Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

1 Answer

My Acer keeps loosing power

My acer note book keeps loosing power,
I took it in one day and they sold me a new power pack,
when I got home my computer came on without the new power pack,
About a month later - no power, changed the power pack and nothing,
took it to computer place who tested and said the new power pack was no good, I took it home and my notebook worked again,
About a month later no power again, took my computer in again, this time they said it was the mother board $500.00 I decide I would purchase a different computer instead of repairing one I had trouble with,
My note book started working again,
I bought a new power bar, changed locations for outlets.
Yesterday - NO POWER AGAIN,
what's going on??
Please advise

My acer aspire 7736G was working fine, it's about 2.5 years old, and is used mainly with the power cord plugged in. When using it the other day the computer just went dead on me. I took the batter

You have reached the end life of the battery pack. The battery must have some minimum charge to have computer function even with the AC power pack connected. So I suggest you replace the battery pack as a solution. Any local Radio Shack store can test this battery I am told free of charge.

The specifications of your computer are top of the line and can handle different applications and soft ware. Based on the hardware specs you've posted this should support Windows 7. But keep in mind that some of your hardware components may need be compatible w/ Windows 7 ( like bluetooth, camera, lan adapter, or wlan). In other words they don't have software driver that is compatible w/ Windows 7.
Also, based on Acer's support site:
This are the only Operating Systems that this model supports: Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista™ Home Premium
Windows Vista™ Home Basic

The Acer freezes all the time right when I turn it on. I can't get further than the message: Windows is starting now. Tried trouble shooting over the phone with an acer technician. I need to send it...

Before you send the computer for repair, please follow the below steps:
It may happen due to hardware failure, BIOS mismatch or due to static charge. Let us try the basic troubleshooting. Turn Off the Computer, remove all the devices attached to the computer, the power cable and battrey, now holdon the power button for 15 secs (make sure adpater and battery are uplugged) it will drain out all the static charge. Now, restart the computer and keep on tapping F2, you will enter to BIOS setup utility, press F9 (click "Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are prompted), it will restart the computer. If still it is not booting to normal mode, then we have to perform a full system recovery & it is a distructive process as you will loose all the datas on the computer. To do so, Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
