I am experiencing a couple of problems with my laptop, my original battery seems to have a memory, so I need to purchase a new one. The first replacement I bought was not charged and would not accept a charge, I kept it charging over a weekend with no luck, so that was returned. I then received another replacement which was fully charged when I received it. I used it a couple of times, but during short use (5 minutes) the laptop would shut down without warning, even though the battery was showing a full charge. Could it be a couple of faulty batteries or might my laptop be at fault. If so what is the best course of action.

Re: Acer Travelmate 270 - battery problem?
IT sounds like your laptop or powersupply/charger is at fault. Try to use a different charger, and if possible use your battery in a different computer. That way you can narrow down where the problem is.
It might ba a faulty connection where the charger is connected to your computer. To check this out, try running the computer on AC without the battery installed. If it suddenly shuts off it's a problem with your powersupply or possibly the connection plug in the cimputer.

Without a bios update and updated operating system the ram may not work properly.Also the memory itself may be faulty.Verification of compatibility doesn't really guarantee the ram will actually work properly when seated.You should have used 2 pc2100 ram sticks.
Have tried to reboot it through its own internal memory w/out the discs? Restart your computer, get into your bios to go to factory restore and do it from there. You should be good to go from there w/out the discs. : )
I just experienced the same issue and found some excellent advice when facing this symptom. Search FixYa for "Ibm t30 post beep error 1 3 3 1." It could be one of your memory boards or the memory socket itself. I pulled out the hard disk, CD ROM, and two memory boards (there is good info on the Lenovo site on how to safely do all this) . I then added back one memory board, applied power, and voila the T30 came to life. I then added the hard disk, CD ROM, and rebooted after adding each device. After adding back the second memory board, I experienced the original problem. So this memory board or the memory socket appears to be the culprit.
HELLO..if you convert the memory and it is you experienced these problems may be the
memory you bought is not compatible with laptop, can the FSB memory is high and
the laptop is low and they do not match the FSB, or try to install a new OS /
In addition to the slider, you will see a small slider that has a picture of a lock on it. You need to slide it to the unlocked position before trying to release the battery. As I recall, there are 2 panels on the bottom of the machine. One should have a graphic representation of memory, but every manufacturer seems to use a different picture. Best solution--open one and if that's not it, try another! You can't hurt anything.
Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.
I charged it for about an hour on the bus connector (wall outlet did not appear to generate any charge). I then opened up the back and removed the battery. Put the battery back in; see if it starts. If so, turn off immiediately and continue to charge it to a full charge (at least 12 hours).
I found other users who experienced the same problem when their battery drained down to a very low level. The unit goes zombie and needs both a charge AND full reset (battery removal) before it can be resurrected.
