Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 8204WLMi Notebook ?

Acer travelmate 8204WLMi charging problem

\015 I have TravelMate 8204WLMi which has a charging problem. The original charger was defective from the factory. Being in Egypt at the time, I had to purchase a universal charger from RadioShack to get it going, and that worked for about a year. At some point I believe the polarity of the plug got reversed (it's a removable plug on the charger) and smoked the charging circuit in the laptop. Works fine running off the charger, but neither of two batteries will charge - one of which is brand new. Where can I get expidited service on this unit, as Acer does not provide it? I will be returning to the USA from Shanghai in a few days and would love to have it repaired while I am in the USA, but I use this constantly in my work and need it back as quickly as possible.\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012\015\012SingBiker\015

The battery has been fine but I did remove it and replace it before expericing problems after the battery had run all the way down. I have tried putting the battery in when in the set up but It just shuts down. The battery was fine (memory) until I removed it. Its not been dropped or anything and has not got wet. Dead? BIOS? CMOS? any ideas. Cheers Mark Guest
