Hi all i have a small problem with a friends acer notebook in that it won't start up.
First problem is battery is not holding any charge. Second when i plug the power pack into the notebook i get the power button light coming on, a flashing light on the front of it and the CPU cooling fan starts but thats it no beeps or any other signs of life.
Acer aspire 3003WLMi notebook Windows XP home Sp2 (i think)
The 2 hdd are different one is Serial ata (mine) and the one in the acer is ide. So no can do. I may be barking up the wrong tree all together here but even if the drive is dead would i not still get "something" on the screen as it tries to boot up?
