If it's cutting out, I'd suggest getting a replacement to make sure it's not a problem with the laptops motherboard. You can obtain a new one directly from Acer (if you feel capable of fitting it yourself, otherwise they'll be happy to have you send the laptop to them and they do it for you - though they will charge extra for this).

My acer travelmate 4200 starts up and then shuts off


Try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink recently? Do you get to any screen? BIOS setup? Boot Menu? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord?

My Acer travelmate 240 laptop is cutting off soon after switching it on, it switches on for about 10 - 20 seconds then switches off. What is the problem, please help


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.
