    find same problem here

    there are a few comments problem being the button itself.but since both the power button and power light flash,the button should be working,right?

    I tried with only ac,only battery,and ac with battery.The same thing,the power light just flashes. And the same time the light of usb mouse flashes also,which I think means the power is really on at that moment,right?

    i reinstalled system with recover cd which didn't help.and even during installation process it happened once when i shut down the computer to restart.

    i downloaded bios yesterday but didn't install it since it says what i have is already latest.

    it might be a special problem for travelmate 2300,since i saw same problems with only 2300 here.someone said it's problem with button which i doubt since the power really on for that second.

    appreciate your comment and hope some could figure out the reason.

Sounds more like a system bios error to me, with it affecting both the mouse and power indicators. Only thing I can recommend is to start it up with the original disk, from mfg, and run it from that disk. Or you can reinstall operating system, and see how that goes.

Blank screen although power light on and fan running.


Please force shut down the unit if it still is on. Then, press the power button and see if it starts up.

If that doesn't work, then please disconnect everything from the unit (Battery and A/C) and Reseat the RAM and recheck.

Acer 2300 Travelmate wont start up

my guess is that your ram got loosed a little bit. that is why some of your system files are not loading correctly. Try re-inserting you ram or memory. just always remember that computer parts are very fragile so do not force to dislodge anything.

Suddenly a black screen!

If your good with computer or know some one that is, sugggest you to remove the LCD rim, and clean the ribbon filament that is connected to the monitor. Sometimes this filament get's dirty and just need to be clean from a cotton swab.
Another solution is for you to plug in a monitor to the laptop.
