Question about Acer TravelMate 240 Notebook

Acer 240 Travel Mate

Have recently bought 2nd hand acer travelmate 240 for young daughter. The screen has a problem however that if in battery mode, when loading up initially it shows the XP logo etc, then after about a minute goes blank. Insert power and all fine so is still running on battery, it's as if the back light will not work under battery after the initial start up. The battery is fully charged and tested and all the screen settings are set up OK, the power up/hibernation settings are all correct - I am stumped. Did get a techie to look at it and all settings are OK but still no luck - any suggestions?

    I have the exact thing happening on my Acer Aspire 3620. The only thing different, is that I can bring normal brightness back for about a minute by pressing Fn+F4 (hibernation). Did you find a solution for your case yet?

I would like to install windows7 on my laptop Acer travel mate 4150 (Travel Mate 4151NLCi) .I already upgraded ram to 2 GB.I afraid about the drivers so help me.


Windows 7 should install on the Travelmate without any problems. However, you are correct to assume that some of the drivers will either not be available or out of date. You can find the ACER drivers on the Acer support page.

Frozen touchpad


I followed the advice of pressing the FN and F7 keys at the same time. It didn't work when the program was fully loaded, but I rebooted and tried again during the rebooting and it worked. I had the frozen cursor on the Travel Mate (Acer) also.
