Laptop powers down when it moved

I have an Acer travelmate 212txv and it powers down when I move it. Power cord is new. I have to remove power cord from the computer and hold it in for it to power up. Could it be something internal?

It's definitely something internal. Could be the DC jack or a loose connector hard to tell unless you open it up. You should take it to a tech for diagnosis.

Acer travelmate 5735z keeps beeping

You have an issue with your memory or a memory slot more than likely.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

How do u replace the power jack its not the cord i tried to replace that and still didnt detect the cord


The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Also, power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

For laptops, remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing.

Leave the power jack fix and heatsink application to an expert.

Hope this helps.

How do i turn an acer travelmate c110 onwhen i plug in power cord it starts up byitself

Start the computer.
Enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Check the "power" settings.
Your computer is currently set to be "on" after the end of a power-outage. Change it to "last state",
i.e., turn it on if was on when the power was removed, or leave it off if it was off when the power was removed. Or, change it to "stay off" after power is restored.

Seems to be powering off battery when plugged in

This will happen if the battery is flat, or near so, try replacing battery, connect up the power adapter, and leave alone for say over night, this should charge the battery. If it doesn't then you have to check, both the charger, and the battery, and replacement is the only real way unfortunately.
