Computer not booting (please assist)
I just recently picked up a ACER TRAVELMATE C300 Tablet PC.
When i got the computer from my co-worker it had Vista loaded on it. I formated the HD and installed Windows XP. I downloaded all the drivers from the ACER site, put them on a disk and installed them on the notebook.
Drivers and a Bios Flash update.
I ran all the drivers, and i did the Bios Flash update.
Computer Rebooted. and doesnt turn on any more
The Bluetooth light and one more turns on, and i can open the CD rom drive. so the system has power. but computer does not load.
I took the computer to a local Computer shop to get the CMOS reset, but he told me the motherboard has to be replaced. I dont believe he even opened up the computer. Yet along turn it on.
The comptuer is tricky to turn on. the power botton is on the side. and there are keys above the keyboard that looks like a power botton.
Any advice, comments, opinons...
The tech dude stated that the computer doesnt even turn on.
But when i had it, i got them lights and was able to open the drive. so thats why i think he doesnt even know how to turn the PC on.
Does any one have any advice on how to open this thing up to reset the cmos, to see if that solves my problem?
I dont want to fork out 400.00 bucks for a computer i just paid 400 for not even 36 hours ago.
GRRRR... NEVER DO BIOS FLASH unless you have to...
please help !!!!
