You might like to check the following post to know how to sold it back if the jack on the motherboard is broken. If the cable is broken, you can get a general one with the same voltage range and maximum current range. Be sure to have one with very similar voltage as the original one.

    If it is broken to pieces, I am not sure whether you can get some parts on ebay. It might be a good idea to use the power jack in case it changed the voltages to the parts it connects to. If you need to by-pass it, you can check the power cord, mainboard print or some specification manual and see what are the voltage requirements for the parts it connects to. Then you can connect power sources with those voltages and maximum current to those parts by solding the parts to another power source like a voltage converter. Would you like to send a picture to me showing what the power jack look like now?

Best guess is a bad fuse. It's also the cheapest easiest fix which is what my dad taught me. Basically, when hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras. A Chilton/Haynes repair manual will provide a fuse panel map etc.

Can a motherboard from another acer work to acer 3275?

I doubt it will fit inside your laptop. Laptop cases usually are designed for a particular model laptop.

I have an Acer TRAVELMATE 4222 and tried to restore the problem by installing the Microsoft 2003 disc but it tells me that windows 32 is missing. Can I resolve this problem? How does one reformate this...


i believe it could be in your programs
acer empowering technologies
acer erecovery management

then follow onscreen instructions

but please if you have the option save any important items like files or photo,s to
a spare drive or disk before you do this as you will loose all you put on and it will format your drive
and hopefully restore back to factory settings

if you cannot start the laptop correctly
then try to press the power key along with the alt+f10 key i believe this will start the recovery

I just installed windows 7 32 bit in my acer travelmate 4222, everything is fine except for sound. there is no sound in speakers but sound from headphone jack is coming. i checked acer's site but there...

If the sound is coming from headphone jack then its mean that the drivers and windows installed correctly, you may check the speakers and speakers connection of your laptop. the speaker jack may be loosen or speakers may gone faulty.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Is there any way to fix my screen kids broke it backwards and now the monitor isn't working

My guess is that they pulled the wires loose, if you remove the keyboard and look underneath there will be wires from the display going to a plug. You'll have to check Acers web site on how to remove the keyboard. they should have a repair manual you can down load(Problbly a PDF Document)

As a first call I would try visiting the smaller specialist camera shops that do repairs.
The manufacturers are starting to hide behind blanket 1 year warranties that only cover manufacturing defects. Basically if it works when you first use it - they won't help on anything else as it comes under "improper use" or "physical damage"
They are producing them cheaper than they can repair them, so, if you do return a genuine claim within a year - they send you a new one, and bin the old one.
They also charge high prices for repairs.

My personal advice is to watch Ebay for an identical model sold for spares. Just do a search,save it and they will email any matches to you.
Then just swap defective parts.
This is the cheapest option.
