Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 354TE Notebook ?

How do i replace the bios battery in an acer 354te

\015 I have a dead screen with no bios yet the battery charges and hard drive spins up\015

Answers :

Hi there.
It could be a couple of things, to rule out the inverter or loose cable connect a external monitor to the laptop (you may have to use Fn and the F key that loos like a TV to switch screens) if you get a display on the external monitor then its definitely the inverter, screen itself or a dislodged cable.
If you want any info on what to do about it please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
