Beeping battery Recently my Acer TravelMate292LCi has started emitting a loud beeping noise when turned on which only seems to stop when I unplug it from the mains. I presume it has something to do with the battery, but on none of the occasions has the battery been close to running out. When I plug in my charger it doesn't register with the machine and I have to poke at it or twist it to get it to register while the screen flickers. This I'm not too surprised at as my headphones socket is total

I'm trying to fix my alienware area 51-m laptop (766, about 5 years old). It was plugged into a surge protector and the phone line a couple years ago when the phone line was struck by lightning. The laptop didn't power on, no fans, no lights, no post. I recently got around to taking it into a repair shop to have it fixed. The guy said it needed a new motherboard (which is what I had already assumed) so I ordered one, and gave it to him. He says he put the new motherboard in, it powered up


Generally, portable power supplies are pretty rugged, and the items you need to be concerned with are what interfaces with the motherboard. Video card, RAM, Wireless, and Modem. If any of these were in the system during the strike, then they are su ... PC Laptops

It recently started flickering when I turn it on. It did this for several minutes before displaying normally. Then it wouldn't display anything at all until I turned it on and off several times. Then it would again flicker for a couple of minutes before behaving normally. It's still under warranty. I have checked the physical connections, disco'd and reconnected them. I think the on/off switch maybe shorting out.
