rate this thread
on the motherboard, and that it would be to expensive to fix.
Though I think I was able to supply it from the battery after I
from the plug...
Is this likely? Is there somewhere I could put a voltage similar to
the one from the battery.
Otherwise I see other posts saying things like "removing of the AC/DC
connector pin from the
system board and have the new one resolder back". Is this easy to do?
This is an Acer Travelmate 630, a bit less than 3Y old. So its not
worth spending a lot on it, but I cant afford a new one right now, so
=80100 or 4 hours of my time for example would be OK, even with some
strange cables hanging around...
Re: Acer laptop power-problems
If the problem is a physical one where the power socket connects to
the motherboard, sure, open it up and have a go with a soldering iron.
It's a bit silly advising to back up your data first, as the computer
won't run! But if you can borrow a similar computer to charge up the
battery, it would be a good idea :-)
Replacing processor on Acer Laptop - finding out which ones i can use
How do I find out which ones I can use (besides the power/heat issue?)
Its an Acer Travelmate 630 with a Mobile Intel Pentium 4 2.0Ghz - M
(But the question is more about finding out than which ones)
