Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

1 Answer

Loose connection, short?

Everytime my acer travelmate 2310 gets unplugged it will not restart??
I have had this problem forever, some say it's my battery, I have replaced it.
than it's my power cord, I have replaced it, the last time someone said it was my fizel? fazel? with instructions to remove the cover, hold the fizel for 30 seconds, return the battery, I did that, it came on a couple of days later,
My grandson unplugged it again, I repeated everything from removing the battery, holding the fizel and now it won't come on,
The battery light is on, but the computer won't start????????????? it is plugged in to the powerbar, which is new too.
Is it possible theres a short or somethings loose somewhere? if so where would I look,
Thank you in advance.

Try to find the button that tells the screen to come on. This sticks sometimes on laptops. I always tell people not to use canned air because it only blows dust around, but it could help your problem. If you are okay with taking it apart you can find this button and see if it is sticking. This is becoming a common problem with laptops. I recently had a customer with this problem and it took me some time to figure it out. It is usually around the hinge. Look at the manual if you can't find it.

    Is there any way that you can check the memory and hard drive. Try moving the memory around and take out the hard drive to see if that helps. Most of the times in this situation it is a hardware problem. I am like you. I do not think that it is the motherboard. I have seen memory do this or other hardware do this. If you have 2 sticks of memory; take one out at a time ans see if there are any changes.
    I will stick with you on this problem if you allow me to. I will not give up until we try everything. It seems like you are willing to do whatever it takes to get to the problem.

    I will work with you until this is solved. You might have to end up sending it to me for me to be able to diagnose the problem. I hope that it does not come to that though. If it does come to that we will work something out on your budget. I am very flexible on my charges. This is my site: http://www.tandnfamilyelectronics-online...
    You can find my contact information there. I have free long distance calling on my home phone. I can call you back if you call me. I have to see a computer not working because of some strange stuff going on.

New LCD Screen not working

The cable that connects the panel to the conputer is not in the connector correctly. It is probably skewed slightly rather than ebing straight into the connector. Since the individual connections are very close to each other, there are a few that are shorted or not connected at all.

Reseat the cables at both ends.

Reformatting an Acer Travelmate 2310

Enter the first recovery cd, and choose the option to format the hard drive and install a fresh copy of windows. Then enter the second recovery cd when it asks. It should have an option of formatting the drive when you put in the recovery cds. There is not that much that can go wrong, since you want to delete everything anyway. Hope that helps :).

No power at all, not even for a second. this happens all the time, it usually comes back days or weeks later, it has been over a week now and nothing. I have replaced the power cord in the past when this happened, when the computer starts up again the older power cord will work again??
Thank you for your quick response.
