Oh, I've had this issue before. You may have your resolution set too high or your installation program has selected the wrong driver for your display. Your going to have to go into display settings and change your display to the correct one.

My acer travelmate 5320 does not pick up that i have a disc in. How do i fix it?


Do You have any bootable(like Operating CD, Linux Live CD etc) CD or DVD... You can try booting from CD or DVD.to boot from CD you need to restart computer enter to your BIOS an dchange your first boot device to CD or DVD.
If those CD or DVD are booting then there is no problem with your Drive, it can be becuase of windows.
now if still you have same problem then try to get one DVD Lance cleaner and try cleaning your Drive's Lance.

Acer 507DX Travelmate, need to remove cover/case to install new HD, apart from the dozen or so screws in the bottom, what else holds it?


The hard drive is usually located under a recess plate on the base of the laptop.
If you locate the battery on the underside, the hard drive cover is next to it and is held on with just two screws.
Hope this helps.

Can't turn off or on, machine is stuck, not on or


Remove the battery, wait 10 minutes, put the battery back and start it. If it starts but doesn't boot in Windows then Windows was corrupted. Recover your files using a Linux Live-Cd like  http://pclinuxos.com/  and reinstall.

My acer laptop display problem, so please how to correct the problem?


First find out if the problem is hardware or software: boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/  If in there the screen is ok then it's a software problem. Boot again in Windows and uninstall the video driver. If after you have rebooted the image is again bad then the problem is in Windows itself, the best solution is to save all your data and reinstall.

I think I have a bad hard drive on my Acer model #BL50. I can't get past the acer logo screen. Help! What do I do?


If you have a Windows disk, put it in the CD and see if you can boot from that. You didn't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to boot from a CD/DVD if the system is working properly.
Once you boot it, you'll need to get to the command prompt (varies according to your operating system) and see if you can see drive C:
You should also, on startup, press the key that puts you into setup (normally F2). You can then look at the system devices and see if it reports that there is a hard drive. If it fails the tests, above, then your hard drive is probably bad.

When checking this, I always see if I can get to the drive by booting from a CD/DVD first.

Acer laptop travemate wont even make any noise or boot up... why?


My initial thought would be that your battery will no longer hold a charge or that your power supply has gone bad. Try taking the battery out and booting the computer with JUST the charger. Any change? How about booting from the battery alone? Have you had any spills on or near it in the last 6 months? If it turns out to be a battery, you can buy them online for around $70. There seems to be an abundance of parts for this model acer. It definitely sounds power related though. If its not the battery or the power supply, my last guess would be the motherboard. Good luck and let me know if things change as your are testing it.

Mother Board CD for ACER Travelmate 240


Unfortunately the Travelmate doesn't come with any other way to format the computer to factory settings. However you do have 2 options. The first is to contact Acer who still provide OS discs for your laptop (They will charge you $49.95 including shipping). The second is to use a free Operating System such as Linux. I recommend Ubuntu www.ubuntu.org as it is very easy to use, has a great community support group and you can try by using a Live CD before formatting.
