I have an acer Travelmate 2410. I've just got a new charger for it. When I switch it on I get the message that windows didn't start successfully then options to start i.e. Safe mode
I have tried safe mode, last known good config and normally but all it does is get to the xp loading screen and loops back.
Any idea what my problem could be?
This wasn't a new laptop it was bought second hand.

there is no default password on acer systems as supposedly there is in dell's
now a good news bad news situation...
in more recent times they switched how the bios stored the bios password. In the past you can could reset it by remocing a cmos battery (small watch type of battery) from the motherboard for like 30 minutes and then enter the bios setup upon the next bootup.
However now some how gone to a 'security chip' a programable EEPROM chip to store the passwords and if so it's required to be shipped back to acer to be fixed and from what I know is not covered by warranty. If this is the case AND ... I say again AND IF it's STILL UNDER WARRANTY (this is completely not a reflection on fixya, it's affiliaties or my self and should be taken at your own risk, liability, and care) you can take out your hard drive and expose the laptop (not the hard drive) it to an electrical current and then contact acer stating it's not working suddenly and need to fixed. take out the hard drive then put on some wool socks run your feet on the floor and when the laptop in on and powered up touch it should do nicely. This of course is to be taken as entertainment and is in no way endoresed by myself or fixya or any of us affiliates or advertisers.
the wireless switch isnt actually a switch. its the same as on the travelmate 2410 i think.which means its a little button on the front. but if that doesnt work
you could always activate it from inside the network connections bit on control panel.
