Preface
Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information. 1. This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION decided for Acer's "global" product offering.

These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details. Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.

Power off the computer. After you use the touchpad. If the battery status indicator does not light up. do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. for both battery and adapter. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. Touchpad Check If the touchpad doesn’t work. remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. replace the DC/DC charger board. To check the battery charge operation.Check the Battery Pack To check the battery pack. use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the computer. From Hardware: 1. Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground). confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct. 2. This symptom is not a hardware problem. 2. Check out the Power Management in control Panel In Power Meter. Repeat the steps 1 and 2. No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time. 3. the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. 3. Chapter 4 105 . If the charge indicator still does not light up. Reconnect the touchpad cables. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight. steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. 4. This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging. 2. replace the battery pack. Replace the touchpad. Re-install the battery pack. If the voltage is still less than 7. 3. replace the battery. do the following: From Software: 1.5 Vdc after recharging. If the charge indicator still does not light up. Replace the system board.

Power-On Self-Test (POST) Error Message The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes. NOTE: If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus. The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and the error symptoms classified by function. If the symptom is not listed. reset the computer.g. e. The most likely cause is listed first. Others may indicate a problem with a device. NOTE: Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in FRU/Action column. enter Setup and install Setup defaults or correct the error. This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when servicing a computer. Do not replace a non-defective FRU. see “Undetermined Problems” on page 120. such as the way it has been configured. the amount of memory installed. put the original part back in the computer. NOTE: Most of the error messages occur during POST.. Some of them display information about a hardware device. if the FRU replacement does not solve the problem. 106 Chapter 4 .

While the system is turned off. c. called BootBlock. before doing this. Prepare the Crisis Disk in WinXP. one Crisis Disk should be prepared in WinXP. RD/CSD can use this special BIOS code to recover the BIOS to a successful one if previous BIOS flashing process fails. If the crisis recovery process is finished. RD/CSD can then update the BIOS to a workable one by regular BIOS flashing process. If the flashing process is finished. The system should be powered on with Crisis Recovery process. Detailed steps are as the followings: a. Short beeps should be heard when flashing. f. the system should be powered on with the successful BIOS. BootBlock BIOS starts to restore the failed BIOS code. d. press and hold Fn+ESC. However.special BIOS block. Power down the system after you hear the long beep. 124 Chapter 5 .
