Battery Problems My Acer 4050 Travelmate won't boot with the battery in. If I take the battery out it works off AC no worries. The battery has been fine but I did remove it and replace it before expericing problems after the battery had run all the way down. I have tried putting the battery in when in the set up but It just shuts down. The battery was fine (memory) until I removed it. Its not been dropped or anything and has not got wet. Dead? BIOS? CMOS? any ideas. Cheers Mark Guest

We are talking about the battery right? So here is what you can try. You only have to "Hit" your battery on a flat surface. The amount of impact you enorfce on it is up to you. The idea of "hammering" the battery like this is simple: It re-alligns the cell structure inside the battery; has something to do with the charge alignment in the battery.

So take the battery in your hand, and "hit" it on a table or any flat surface (make sure you dont break it). Speed and force similiar when there's a fly on the table and you want to take it "down" with your hand. Hit it 3 to four times. Then Put the battery into the LT again, with AC power and charge.

when the charging is done, disable all your power saving options so that your LT would run without going into hibernation, sleep mode, or power saving mode; Disconnect the AC and let it Run until its "Dead", that means the battery is drained totally. Now close your Laptop, hook up the AC again and let it charge approx. 6-20 hrs depedning on your battery standard charging rates.

After this, your battery SHOULD work fine again. If not, the battery was just faulty meaning it needs a replacement.

Acer travelmate 4100 works fine with no battery


Try to use another OS, like Ubuntu Live, and see if the mouse and KB will freeze. If they wont freeze, It is better to reinstall the OS.

If they will freeze again with Ubuntu, then I am sorry to tell you that the battery life has finished.

The only thing to do is to replace it for another one new.


Thanks for rating!!

I am sure its totally fault of your OS. Becouse some when ac working well, some where battery. your OS does not recognised your power control properly. Try to use single OS and get batter result. if done thumbs me.

Sounds like the battery and how the system is wired (circuits)
Some systems require the voltage reg chips to run through the battery before turning system on. When the battery fails, the system will not boot, the dead battery interrupts the circuitry.
Once the Battery is removed the open circuit then is allowed to go to a new path.

Try this. boot up system and go into set up utility. plug in the battery, if it shuts down, get new battery. If it accepts it, save settings and reboot into OS.

Travelmate 2310 keyboard and touchpad problem


Boot up the system (without the battery).
When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies *
Wait till the systems shuts down by itself.
Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine.
Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay.
You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.
