Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Completely dead My Acer 3000 was working perfectly for years and then all of sudden it is dead. No lights in front, no power up, no sign of life. I put a volt meter on the power supply and it is showing 18 volts. Is this a major problem with these laptops?

Check the power adapter connection or the socket. Recently my power adapter socket gave me the same problem. When I check from the adapter using voltmeter it's seems to be working.

But when i plugged it in the laptop, nothing happens. So I google around for help and found this tutorial after following the suggestions I managed to revive my notebook.

only few never used laptops last 10 years old.
so with the flash light (dark room) at an angle shin the LCD
see data, now on the screen, yes, that is a DEAD CCLF.
on ebay you see them selling new CCLF screens for this PC.

my bet the CCFL are dead. as most are this old.
All laps this old fail in this order,
BIG battery goes bad or shorts.
COIN cell dead.
CCLF dead ( ended about year 2010 , LED back lamps began)
HDD dead at 5 to 10 years old.

this is all Expected. all from carbon14 dating a PC, I can say that.

13 yr old dishwasher suddenly stopped working mid pre wash. Water left in bottom of machine. Power point is fine. Will not start at all now though. No lights turn on either. Is it fixable ?


If it is 13 years old, it has most likely reached its end of life--whatever the cause, something has malfunctioned. However, a service technician would probably be able to advise.

Why has my Nokia 800 suddenly gone dead?


try holding the power key for over 10 secs. this simulates a "battery pull". try restarting after that. im assuming you are not out of juice and have tried some stuff there already.

Laptop Acer Aspire 3354-1096 Power-up Problem


Do you have access to a multimeter to track the AC/DV current? If the power is getting to the laptop, correct DC/AMP voltage? AC jack been damaged, pulled, yanked...etc? Hard to say which component without checking with a multimeter? PSU?

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

Acer 4520 Dead, Blank screen , No response...


It sounds like something on the motherboard has possibly shorted out. That can range from the CPU to RAM to the DVD. If it's still under warranty I would suggest sending it in for repair.

If you do send it in, please let them know to backup your harddrive if they have to reformat and restore it for any reason. Your important files are still there and safe.

My battery dies within 20 minutes of use. I've let my battery charge overnight but i still only get about 20 to 30 min of life out of it. is that standard for an Acer Aspire 3000?


If the battery is more than one year old, or has been often used with the power supply plugged in, it might have degraded.

Sometimes you can regenerate it to some lesser extent by completely draining it and recharging overnight (but that's apparently what you already did).

So I'm afraid you will have to replace it.

A new Acer battery (4400 mAh) should get you at least three hours life, and up to six hours by being real careful (lowest screen luminosity, no disk activity, no heavy usage: e.g., vanilla word processing)
