Having problems with your Acer Ferrari 3400 Notebook ?



Answers :

First of all, check the output of your power adapter with a multimeter. It is possible for the "light" to come on but the cord to be no good beyond the light. The amount of volts it should be outputting is labeled on the power adapter body.

If the power adapter tests good, then you are looking at the motherboard having a problem. A common problem is that the power port on motherboard has broken the solder connection. Usually it is the post in the center of the port.

If you are not familiar with soldering or repairing parts on a circuit board, then here are a few options.
1. Turning it in for warranty work.
2. Taking laptop to a electronics repair shop.
3. Buying a new motherboard and replacing old one.
4. Buying a new laptop.

Minus option #1, none are cheap fixes. Sorry for the bad news, but I hope this helps you.
The modern adaptors are 'switched mode' that allows them to accept a wide range of input voltages (typically 100-240 VAC).\015\012Unfortunately, they have some components in them that are critical to their operation and on these, many mfrs. like to cheat on quality.\015\012This causes the early demise of the supply.\015\012
\015\012I saw Acer supplies offered at <$20 US searching on Google so I suggest you replace the supply.\015\012Note; this may not fix your problem anyhow as most laptops have a bit of circuitry inside to control the input from the pack and choose whether to use the battery or not.\015\012If that fails, the unit may not receive input from either.
