Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

Acer TravelMate 4502LCi Not booting as far as BIOS

My laptop turns on, the fan is whiring, the lights on the front come on, but nothing else.  No screen at all and no boot.  I have tried turning it on with each F Key pressed, and still nothing.  I have tried removing the HDD, the CD Rom Drive, the memory and the battery, but still nothing.  I suspect for some reason the BIOS is not kicking in.  Anyone know of a way of resetting this?  PLEASE!???

    booting problem

  • Anonymous Mar 21, 2014

    I need to get into the bios so I can change the boot order, but it will not allow me. I've taken the hdd out, took the bios battery out and power drained the system. I've held f2 and f10 as I powered it on. I've pressed f2 or f10 after I powered it on. I've taken out the cd rom. I've exhausted all the options I know of. It just boots straight from the splash screen straight to no OS found. And yes I checked, the keyboard is functional.

Hi, normally if you are unable to boot up to BIOS your laptop will sound a number of beeps to tell you that something is wrong, So if you are not hearing any beeps and something is happening on your laptop then I think you could be right and the cmos settings of your BIOS have gotten corrupted.
The only way to reset your BIOS settings without being logged on is to physically remove the battery from the motherboard.
If when you replace it it still doesnt boot up, try replacing the battery with a new one.

Hope this helps.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Sony Vaio Laptop Will not turn on...HELP


The problem maybe the RAM, it maybe faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

HP Pavilion DV6700 won't boot


Possibly overheating? As you say that when you press and of the F-Key option nothing is happening, and also the fan is running at full power, if the fan is louder than usual, then it could be overheating in the air vents which you can find either at the sides, back, front and underneath the laptop, try getting the compressed air, and giving the air vents a blast to get all dust out. Or a vacuum. Do it whilst laptop is turned off though!

Hey i just took a pot light out of the roof of my bathroom to install a fan and light combo in the whiring for the pot light the whiring is on a normal switch and is whired into another light over top my...


yes, maybe- if there is power in the switch then you can steal power from it.. Take off the coverplate and remove the switch. If there are two seperate cables in there with a black and white or a black white and red then there is power there.. You will however need to run one more single wire to the fan, and another switch. You can get a double switch that will fit in the single box..There is one other way to turn the fan on and off, but the light has to be on for the fan to be on, without running new wires. Get a simple pull cord switch and mount it in the face of the fan housing. Then find the black wire running to the fan and seperate it where it ties into the power. Connect the black wire from the fan to one of the wires on the pull switch (either one) and connect the power wire to the other wire on the switch.

My toshiba 2455-s305 wont boot up


If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.

Sony Vaio laptop vgn-fs640-w problems


The motherboard controls the fan speed - and laptops often turn it off entirely when it is not needed. This sounds like a motherboard issue where an internal trace is broken and sometimes it makes contact, other times not. There's probably nothing you can do except replace the motherboard.
