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.

I have Acer 1200 Aspire. When I turn it on, it won't proceed past the initial window. It says boot failure.


It almost sounds like your primary boot disk is incorrectly selected in the BIOS. On older machines, the primary disk on the primary cable had to be the boot disk, but nowadays almost any device can be selected as boot disk. Check your BIOS setting and ensure that the hard disk partition that you have Windows installed on is selected as the first boot device. Otherwise, the system may be looking in the wrong place for the OS and giving the boot error.

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:
Product
Notebook
Issue
Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

Remove and plug your ram back in. You should be able to run set up. Your Ram could either defected or need to be resett in its slot. To do this : e110d84.jpg On page 36 of the travelmate user manual: 1 Turn off the computer, unplug the AC adapter (if connected) and remove the battery pack. Then turn the computer over to access its base. 2 Remove the screws from the memory cover; then lift up and remove the memory cover. 3 (a) Insert the memory module diagonally into the slot, ben (b) gently press it down until it clicks into place. acfa349.jpg 4 Replace the memory cover and secure it with the screw. 5 Reinstall the battery pack, adn reconnect the AC adapter. 6 Turn on the computer. The computer automatically detects and reconfigures the total memory size. You can download the entire manual : http://hollyecho.com/download/travelmate_2430.pdf Let me know if this helps, if not we will go on from there.

Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC? DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If not then try to replace the battery with a new one.


hope this helps.

I have an acer 4050 Travelmate, it has just suddenly stopped charging the battery. The machine works with the battery out and on 240v. If you put the battery in and on 240v it wont turn on. The battery has...


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.
