Acer Travelmate 270 - battery problem?

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.

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.

Upgrade to higher cpu speed travelmate 270

CPU speed is not going to make much of a difference. You need to increase RAM (random access memory). This will make a huge difference in speed performance.

Acer Travelmate 270 Memory Upgrade

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.

Dismantle Acer travelmate 270 Laptop

Caution is advised, as getting everything to work again after you put it back together is normally difficult, especially the screen. You will have to remove all the panels underneath, all screws and look for screws around the screen hinge area, with hexagon heads. There are no instructions on acer notebooks on their site for obvious reasons.
