Give us more details? What do you mean Not Working? Are you saying that when you press the Power Button, nothing whatsoever happens?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Acer TravelMate 270 upgrades:

The official upgrade slot is located on the bottom of the laptop and is easy to find. Just unscrew the small cover and there it is.

The other slot requires you to unscrew the two screen bracket screws. Once you have done this, between ESC and F1, F4 and F5 and F12 and PrtSc there are small plastic rings. Put a biro nib into these and pull down. They will pop down. You can now remove the plastic cover.
Unscrew the two screws marked "L9" on the bottom of the laptop which are located at the top of the memory cover. Now you can remove the keyboard. Underneath the keyboard is the second RAM slot. The SiS 650 chipset supports a max of 1GB per memory slot and since this laptop has two slots that means 2GB of RAM. I've used Kingston DDR400 PC 3200 SODIMMS.

You can also upgrade the CPU - the fastest CPU available is the Pentium-M 2.6GHz. Nothing faster will work - trust me on this. It must be a Pentium 4 Northwood architecture CPU with a 400MHz FSB. Standard P4 Northwood CPUs with the metal shim won't fit - unless you know a way of removing the shim without destroying the CPU. Best to stick with a Pentium mobile (Pentium 4 M) chip. Look on Ebay for these.

Of course the hard disk can also be upgraded - a 200GB 7200RPM 2.5" drive works a treat. Non SATA of course.

You can add wireless and USB 2.0 using PCMCIA carbus cards. I use a StarTech 54mbps wireless card with the RAlink chipset and a NEC USB 2.0 card with 4 USB ports. Both cards fit in at the same time.

The laptop absolutely flies with these upgrades.

The power supply adapter needs to be checked to make sure it is putting out the full rated power under load.

Acer TravelMate... | Answered on Feb 14, 2011


Hello,

Turn the unit on its back, so that when it is closed the LCD backcover is facing on the table. You'll see a smaller coverer that can be removed from the actual bottom cover. Make sure you remove the battery first then all necessary screws. Lift up the cover gently, then blow out using compressed air can. Reinstall cover and tighten with screws.

Also make sure you apply new heat sink paste to the CPU. Also make sure that the CPU Heat sink fan actually turns and is not clogged up or has bearings broken.

The older laptops like this one are easier to clean than the 6952 for example.

Come in from the front.
The Top Cover has the LCD screen attached to it, and the hinges are attached to it. When you have the laptop closed, you are viewing the Top Cover.

AC adapter unplugged (Charger), battery removed.
Around the LCD screen is a Screen Bezel. This bezel is removed first. Look carefully around the bezel. Upon close inspection you'll see a series of rubber rounded tiny pads. These are Screw Covers. Take a small flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and remove them, or pry them up to one side, so that you can get to the screw head.

The statement -> Pry, sounds bad. In essence these screw covers, are a half moon shape (Almost) of some rubbery material, and have a glue that holds them on. This glue 'resembles' a type of rubber cement. If you carefully ease the flat tip towards the edge of the half moon shape, where it contacts the flat bezel, push in, and pry up, you'll see they come off relatively easy.

Most of the time if you store the screw covers upside down, glue surface up, you can reuse them with no additional glue needed.
The only problem you'll have with them, is they stick to the screwdriver tip, and your fingertips! Hard to put them somewhere!

Be sure to remove all of them. Generally there are 6. Two per side.
(Top, Bottom, Left Side, Right Side)
Now remove the Philips head screws underneath them. (Have this shape +) (No.1 Philips screwdriver)

Now you have to pop the bezel up, and off. I would use two Jewelers screwdrivers for this. A small kit of Jewelers screwdrivers, can be purchased from a number of places, if you don't have any. An inexpensive set should do just fine, ($5?)

The bezel has a parting line, (Crevice/Gap), where it meets the Top Cover. Sometimes it's a little tough to see. Start with a small flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and see if you can ease it partially in this parting line. It's a little tough to get the first one started. If it seems as though it won't slide in a little, (Depth of 1/8th inch, or half the width of a No.2 pencil), then move over, try again.

DON'T come in from the LCD screen side. You'll damage the LCD screen, AND the bezel. (Even if you're replacing the LCD screen, you'll break the bezel. Has to be taken off from the outside edge)

Part way in, on the outside edge of the bezel, are locking tabs. These are made of plastic, and formed when the bezel was made. They are part of the bezel. They are spaced around the inside edge of the bezel. They are spaced, Locking tab, space. Locking tab, space. Locking tab, space.

This is why I suggested to move over with the screwdriver. You may be trying to put the screwdriver in, where a locking tab is.

Once you get a start, and have the flat tip Jewelers screwdriver in the parting line, take a second flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and try to ease it in the gap you've made. Put it towards the end of the gap, where it narrows down. If you cannot, ease the end of the screwdriver you have in now, down. This will pry up on the bezel.
You will see the bezel bend. It fairly thin plastic at this edge, but this is TOUGH plastic. Don't go crazy, but it will bend pretty far, before it would break. Use a fair amount of pressure, but use finesse.

See if the bezel will pop up a bit. You can also move down a bit with the other flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and try to make another pry point. Working two screwdrivers in this fashion, puts less strain on that plastic bezel.

When you get the bezel up far enough, you'll hear a loud pop, or snap sound. You'll think you broke the plastic bezel. Nope! Just one of those lock tabs letting go of the Top Cover. Keep working around the edge. Watch the top edge. If you have a built in webcam there are small wires close to the webcam. Look in while you're popping the bezel cover up. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Once you have the bezel off, you're home free!
You can now see the screws that hold the LCD screen to the Top Cover. You can see how the hinges are attached. After you're done, the bezel just snaps back into place, then the screws are put in, and the screw covers.

the product key is asked for at the start of the operating system installation, the product key code no. is always on the underside of notebooks as 9 times out of 10 they don't come with a cd, if you have a cd, and your notebook has a number on the underside you can use this number

If you are positive that there are not any screws holding it down then look for tiny plastic tabs holding in place. I usually use a very small flat head screw driver and find an area to safely insert the tip between the cover and the rest of the laptop and very gently and slowly separate the two. If you come across an area that just won't move then look for something that is securing it.
PATIENCE is the biggest key. I learned this the hard way on my own laptop, lol!

Good luck, n hope this helps!
