    Default Acer Travelmate 230 Problem

    Hey Guys.
    I recently bought a second hand Acer travelmate 230 laptop.

    I have charged it.
    And when i went to turn it on, the power light does not come on, nothing appears on the screen.
    But i can hear the fans going inside it.
    The CD drive works.

    But apart from that it doesnt seem to work.

    Please help me here.
    Thanks
    Cameron

    So, you brought something, 2nd hand, that was dead?

    Did you look at it, to see if it was working, before u brought it?

    So does it work with power??

    Did you try it on battery and power? Or just battery??

    Might need another battery.

    Well Cameron the prognosis doesn’t look good from where I sit.

    However, we can but try.

    Do you have a monitor you can plug in the back just to see if you can see anything on it?

    And, don’t get caught like I did with a touchpad that had been turned off with the Function Key. (I’m still getting over that, scarred for life)

    Make sure the “Function key” has not set the Video to External Monitor.

    Have tried an external moniter. Doesnt work ...

    Even if the touchpad has been turned off, shouldnt the power light come on anyway.

    Don’t worry about the reference to me getting caught by the Function key turning off the touchpad. That was just an aside about a problem where I got caught out.

    So, what lights do we have, if any?

    As far as I can see all we have is a fan running and the CD draw opens and closes but nothing else.

    Is that correct?
