Hi
If it's plugged in a light should come on to show that it's charging. Next you need to press the on button on the laptop and it should then turn on.

If it makes a sound when you turn it on (i.e. starts humming) but the screen stays black then it may be that the screen is switched off.

I think the best thing may be for you to refer to this guide as it will help you get started with the laptop but if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

Hope this is helpful
Philip

    Sorry about that!!
    This link will work - just choose the language you want. The reason it didn't work was because I tried to link you directly to the pdf manual.

It seems you have not install the driver for the WLAN, I'll suggest you to download the proper driver for your Network connection from the official Accer website and install it. I hope after installing it'll work for you back.

Acer travelmate 3210


Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series
and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI

like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.

there was no need to update Bios
now in case your laptop is turning on
Please try to start in the Safe mode
and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode.
Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please
try to reinstall the Windows Xp

and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of.
do not try unless it is MOST required
