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 initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

Acer note book would just turn off without any warning with power


it could be a problem with the windows operating system... you can try going to safe mode first by continuously pressing F8 before windows starts to load upon turning on your laptop. if it works then you can use the windows operating system disc to repair the problem and if it doesn't work then you might need to reformat and reinstall the OS...

In Trouble can't power on my laptop with or without battery?????????


Sounds like the AC adapter cable has a break in it.

If you have a multimeter you can test it. I use a paperclip to get to the middle if my multimeter probes are too big for the hole.

If it's got good constant power then the jack on the machine where the AC adapter plugs in is probably loose or broken.
Sites like laptopjacks.com sells new jacks that you could get someone to solder onto your motherboard.
