Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
So my brother in law had a couple of laptops that he figured were just fried because he got nothing on the screen when he started them up and he gave them to me to see if I can do anything for them.
I was able to make the compaq work but am having trouble with the acer, but would like to give both back working if possible.
At first when attempting to power on the Acer Aspire 3000 the fan would start and lights would come on the front but nothing would happen.
I opened up the back and the memory was just hanging there not even connected. Once I got that installed properly, now I am getting the "Acer Screen" which will allow me to hit F2 to get into the bios, however if I dont go into the bios, the laptop reboots itself after this screen and seems to be stuck in this re-boot. acer screen, reboot pattern.
I thought that maybe the hard drive wasnt connected properly but tried to re-install that with no luck.
Does this sound like a problem with the board, is this laptop gone for good?
I have an acer aspire 3000 i change the video settings on the bios setup to both from auto and know im getting a black screen any help???both internal and external blank....

Thanks for the response, turn it off and remove the battery/power supply, now take one of the cards out, now put the battery/power supply back in and switch it on, if it still does not work, do the same again but put the other card back in and take the other one out, now switch on.
Let me know how it goes.

My understanding of the Acer 3000 set up....NOT A NuBEE
=========== VERY IMPORTANT ==================== Before you remove any compnents - Remove Power/Battery.
I have found best results with a Default Factory Settings reinstall from eManager ,to be quite reliable and their system is reinstalled within minutes.
Any missing components ie sound, vga, modem, usb,etc can be located on the recovery disks,also another important step is to do SP2 Windows Updates to give the devices the correct functionallity otherwise expecting them to function correctly without giving them the right tools and instructions would be premature and wasting your own time trying to make it work only to do your head-in in the process.
Other Acer Issues....
Replace when they die or use AC power pack.
VGA SIS 760G
Sorry not upgradable for video out,dedicated/shared memory type.
DEAD HARD DRIVES
mean a lengthy reinstall with recovery disks or reinstall OS from a separate machine then when Operating System is reloaded replace into Acer Hard Drive Bay now ready for Acer Reinstall.
HARD DRIVE RECOVERY
If its important === Leave it to the PRO's
RAM / Memory.
Ram slots x 2 . MAX 2GB = 1GB + 1GB
Readily available in many sizes 128mb,,256mb,512mb,1GB and many brands,Kingston,Transcend,etc....
RULE OF THUMB for RAM,
always put identical size ram ie 256mb+256mb... re sometimes the slowest ram is maximum speed so making them identical give double speed proformance instead of half ..re 256mb + 1gb registers 1.256mb but runs at 512mb.
WIRELESS/Axis Points & Blue Tooth Devices.
Works well if set up has correct Axis Point to Device Security Protocols Established and properly Encrypted too.
There are some clever people out there who can hack your wireless connections so I recommend a hard wired Cat 5e @ 100MBPS or Cat 6 @1GPS,(I think thats right)lol.
A closed network is more secure the an open one,
LCD Screen Replacements/Inverters
Can be done.Mostly Matt Finish or Ultra Bright Lcds.
CDRW or /DVD/RW
Replaceable and upgradable,
