Laptop does not post: (then it is a hardware problem)
· try the following first.check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,
· if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
· Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
· remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives and remove the memory sticks,
· clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
· swap them around if you have more than one,
· try one at a time.
· if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or
· get a friend or family member to download a "memory chip diagnostic's" program such as memcheck 1.70 and boot up of it ,it will check your ram ,if not
· take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
· if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, try a boot-able anti virus disc and a recovery /system disc's , if that don't work,
· it may be that the motherboard or the cpu is failing
· Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.

good luck with that and let me know how you get on

Acer Travel mate 7730 os xp laptop shuts down

make sure processor fan is working fine. you may hear the sound of fan on the left side of the laptop. and make sure its not getting heat soon. If the fan is not working you need to replace the fan. If if gets heat soon that means you have to put processor cooling paste.IF the fan is working fine and the processor heat is normal, then you need to re-fix the RAM. Then it will work fine..ok

Reset my acer travel mate 520it

Am not sure about a reset.. However, you can try the system restore option. This will bring back your system to a earlier date configuration.

Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System tools --> system restore is where you will find this.

Please read whats in there before restoring .. You might lose recently installed software / data
