My computer was working fine last night. I left it on the AC power to charge the battery overnight and it won't turn on at all today. I tried plugging it in & unlugging the AC power and nothing... Help!

Re: Acer Travelmate C112TCi- Won't power on
Hi, Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the
battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.
The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.
Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.

You neglected to provide the age of the tablet. If it's a couple years or older your battery might be on the way out. They don't last forever and some of them aren't of the best quality to begin with. Charge it all night long. In the morning when you turn it on if it still doesn't work right be sure to check the battery level with the A/C adapter unplugged. The level indicators are based on the voltage. If the voltage doesn't come up to spec, it might show less than 100% charge even when charged overnight.
The wi-fi problem could be battery related, too, as wi-fi is a radio transceiver that sends as well as receives signals. Wi-fi doesn't work so well if the transmitter produces a weak or intermittent signal.
Does it use an AC adapter or a USB cable to charge? The AC adapter or the USB cable could be bad. Try another cable/adapter. Does the tablet show a lightning bolt on the battery icon when you connect the charger or nothing at all? Does the tablet power up when you are connected to a power source? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then it is probably a bad battery or charging jack. If the tablet is under warranty, contact the store where you bought it or the manufacturer. If it is not under warranty, try an independent cell phone store that might be able to open it for you and see what type of battery you need to replace it. Get the battery pack model number, size, voltage and maH rating and search for a similar battery on Ebay.
I will assume you are finding the procedure to remove battery for the ACER travelmate C300 tablet PC. Best way would be to go to page 50 in the service manual available at this site. http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/travelmate%20c300.pdf
The battery not charging could simply be the battery is old and dead or the charging circuit is faulty. Start with the adapter in that case as it is cheapest to replace.
If you are removing parts to diagnose further then I would strongly suggest you video what you are doing in order to get back to where you started.
I had the same thing happen to my Digix Tab 720 last night. This happened after I reset the tablet to factory settings. I left it charging over night and this morning, it is working perfectly. Hope this helps.
Hi, Seems like your hard disk is not getting detected. Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN. Start tapping the DEL key as soon as you power on the computer. This will take you to the BIOS screen. If it doesn't, you will have to check whether your hard disk is faulty with a local technician.
Once you get in to the BIOS screen, press F9 to load the default settings. Than press F10 to save and exit. Once you do this, the computer will restart.
Select Notebook>TravelMate>TravelMate C110
Under the drivers tab, you will find all the drivers you need for your laptop. Don't forget to select the Operating system or else the drivers will not show up.
Try taking the laptop battery out. You can remove the laptop battery by turning it over, you'll usually see some sliders at the bottom, slide them to the unlock position and you should be able to wedge your battery out. The battery usually comes in a very tall and thin rectangular shape.
Once the battery is out, plug the laptop in through the mains power - this may solve your problem, if it does, you'll need a new battery if you wish to use it on the move.
If it does not solve your problem, it is either a faulty power adaptor, or a faulty power supply on the motherboard of your laptop. A faulty power adaptor or battery is the best case scenario, as it's the cheapest to buy a replacement (although it's still expensive - $120 worth in the UK roughly). A faulty power supply on the mainboard generally means you'll need a replacement mainboard which is totally uneconomical, especially with the labour cost to fit it professionally.
If the battery and power adaptor is not faulty, you might as well scrap it and get a new laptop. Good luck Tina!
