Answers :

YOu can always use higher amps when required but not lower than required. Voltage should stay the same as original charger - keep it in mind.
Check the amperage on the ACDC adapter block for both of them.

Hello Helpers, My Lap Top - Series W7 S was left charging by my husbannd for longer than the 2 hours I suggested to him. Now I cannot get any response when the machine is turned on at the power, nor operating on the battery. We are currently using a wireless connection to it. The computer was bought in Taiwan and they only provided me with a brief manual in Mandarin. Could the drive be burned out because he forgot to attach the fan? Suzanne (Australia)


If the fan was not functioning - or blocked - it could have caused the processor to fail but not the drive. Try disconnecting the battery and the ac charger - then reconnect just the charger and try again - that is a hard reset. Is the laptop showing ... PC Desktops

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger


Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
