Use the following procedure as a guide for computer problems.
Note: The diagnostic tests are intended to test only Acer products. NonAcer products, prototype cards, or modified options can give false
errors and invalid system responses.
1. Obtain the failing symptoms in as much detail as possible.
2. Verify the symptoms by attempting to re-create the failure by running the
diagnostic test or by repeating the same operation.
Note: To run the diagnostics, refer to “Running the Diagnostics”..

4.
5.
Reconnector the diskette drive.
Replace the diskette driver cable.
Replace the diskette.
Replace the IDE board
Replace the Main board.
Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check
Remove the external keyboard if the internal keyboard is to be tested.
If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected character appears,
make sure that the flexible cable extending from the keyboard is correctly
seated in the connector on the sub card.
If the keyboard cable connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test. See
“Running the Diagnostics” for details.
If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time to
correct the problem. Do not replace a nondefective Spare Part:
1. Reconnector the keyboard cables.
2. Replace the keyboard.
3. Replace the Main board.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported for this computer:
• Numeric keypad
• External keyboard (with keyboard/mouse cable)
If any of these devices do not work, reconnector the cable connector and
repeat the failing operation.
If the problem does not recur, recheck the connector. If the problem is not
corrected, replace the device and then the Main board.

Power System Check
To verify the symptom of the problem, power on the computer using each of
the following power sources:
1. Remove the battery pack and diskette drive.
2. Connect the AC Adapter and check that power is supplied.
3. Disconnect the AC Adapter and install the charged battery pack; then
check that power is supplied by the battery pack.
If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply Check in
the following list:
• “Checking the AC Adapter”
• “Checking Operational Charging”
• “Checking the Battery Pack”
Checking the AC Adapter:
• You are here because the computer fails only when the AC Adapter is
used:
• If the power problem occurs only when the port replicator is used,
replace the port replicator.
• If the power-on indicator does not turn on, check the power cord of the
AC Adapter for correct continuity and installation.
• If the operational charge does not work, go to “Checking Operational
Charging.”
1. Unplug the AC Adapter cable from the computer and measure the output
voltage at the plug of the AC Adapter cable. See the following figure
:
Pin
Voltage (Vdc)
1
+16
2
Ground
If the voltage is not correct, replace the AC Adapter.
60
TravelMate 310 Service Guide
If the voltage is within the range, do the following:
• Replace the Main board.
• If the problem is not corrected, go to “Undetermined Problems”.
• If the voltage is not correct, go to the next step.
Note: An audible noise from the AC Adapter does not always indicate a
defect.
Checking Operational Charging:
To check operational charging, use a discharged battery pack or a battery
pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in
the computer.
Perform operational charging. If the battery status indicator does not turn on,
remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Reinstall the
battery pack.
If the charge indicator still does not turn on, replace the battery pack. If the
charge indicator still does not turn on, replace the Main board. Then reinstall
the battery pack. If the reinstalled battery pack is not charged, go to the next
section.
Checking the Battery Pack:
Battery charging will not start until the Fuel-Gauge shows that less than 95%
of the total power remains; with this condition the battery pack can charge to
100% of its capacity. This protects the battery pack from being overcharged
or having a shortened life.
Do the following:
1. Power off the computer.
2. Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery first
and last grid.
If the voltage is still less than +7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
TouchPad Check
If the TouchPad does not work, check the configuration in the TouchPad
BIOS program. If the configuration of the TouchPad is disabled, select Enable
to enable it.
If this does not correct the TouchPad problem, continue with the following.
After you use the TouchPad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time.
This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure
Chapter 4
61
is applied to the TouchPad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware problem.
No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short
period of time.
If a click button problem or the pointing stick problem occurs, do the following:
1. Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the PQA program (please
refer to “Running PQA Diagnostics Program”.
2. Go to the diagnostic Pointing Dev. in the test items.
3. Press F2 in the test items.
4. Follow the instructions in the message window.
If either the pointing stick or the click button do not work, do the following
actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a nondefective
Spare Part:
1. Reconnector the TouchPad cables.
2. Replace the TouchPad FPC.
3. Replace the TouchPad.
62
TravelMate 310 Service Guide
Symptom-to-Spare Part Index
The symptom-to-Spare Part index lists the symptoms and errors and their
possible causes. The most likely cause is listed first.
Note: Perform the Spare Part replacement or actions in the sequence
shown in the “Spare Part/Action” columns. If a Spare Part
replacement did not solve the problem, put the original part back in
the computer. Do not replace a nondefective Spare Part.
This index can also help you determine the next possible Spare Part to be
replaced when servicing a computer.
Numeric error codes show the errors detected in POST or system operation.
If no codes are available, use narrative symptoms.
If the symptom is not listed, go to “Undetermined Problems” .
Numeric Error Codes
The following is a list of the message that the BIOS can display. Most of them
occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware
device, e.g., the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem
with a device, such as the way it has been configured. Following the list are
explanations of the messages and remedies for reported problem.
Note: If the system fails after you make changes in the Setup menus,
reset the computer, enter Setup and install Setup defaults or correct

Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons
that have nothing to do with a hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation,
electrostatic discharge, or software errors. Spare Part replacement should be
considered only when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing an intermittent problem, do the following:
1. Run the advanced diagnostic test for the Main board in loop mode at least
10 times.
2. If no error is detected, do not replace any Spare Part.
3. If any error is detected, replace the Spare Part shown by the Spare Part
code. Rerun the test to verify that no more errors exist.
Undetermined Problems
You are here because the diagnostic tests did not identify which adapter or
device failed, installed devices are incorrect, a short circuit is suspected, or
68

Note: Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the failure is
operating correctly. (See “Power Systems Check”):
1. Power off the computer.
2. Visually check them for damage. If any problems are found, replace the
Spare Part.
3. Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:
a. Non-Acer devices
b. Devices attached to the port replicator
c. Printer, mouse, and other external devices
d. Battery pack
e. Hard disk drive

Limitations
These tips provide technical information about known difficulties that could be
encountered when using this product. Our engineers are working
continuously to eliminate these and all other potential problems, but our
preliminary research has revealed that the following potential limitations may
exist:
1. Setup difficulties may be incurred when using the Olicom TRN/Modem
Combo Card (OC3232).
2. If a 3COM CB chip is installed and the computer has only 16MB of RAM,
difficulty may occur when booting Win95. (It may boot Win95 repeatedly.)
3. The internal modem (Modem driver version 4.16.1) may be unable to
receive ring-in calls.

Windows 95

Limitation
These tips provide technical information about known difficulties that could be
encountered when using this product. Our engineers are working
continuously to eliminate these and all other potential problems, but our
preliminary research has revealed that the following potential limitations may
exist:
1. While using the Slim SCSI card (1480 or 1460) to connect to a CD-ROM
playing video, the system may hang when entering standby (STD) mode.
2. When using QAPlus/Win R7.1, the system could incur memory, floppy
drive, or COM port (COM3) problems.
3. In BIOS, the "VGA always on" setting may function improperly.
4. While playing back video from the external CD-ROM (Addonics 24X), the
system may hang or experience a fatal exception when using the STD
hotkey.
5. The timeout function of the Standby timer may function improperly.
6. In BIOS, the "Resume on time" date setting may function improperly. (The
system might resume when the time is matched even when the date is
unmatched.)
7. After pressing the STD hotkey to enter standby mode, plugging or
unplugging the USB mouse may cause a fatal exception.
8. The internal modem (Modem driver version 4.16.1) may be unable to
receive ring-in calls. (The "Resume on modem ring" setting may function
improperly.)
9. When using MediaPlayer to play back a full-screen AVI file, the screen
may tremble after resuming from STD mode.
10. While using ActiveMovie to play an MPEG file (original size), the
shutdown screen may be abnormal when restarting the system.
11. When playing back an MPEG file, the screen display (STN and TFT,
800*600*High color) may be abnormal.
12. Win95 is unable to configure the Viking 16-MB ATA Flashcard.
13. The internal speaker motor of the new Addonics 24X CD-ROM makes an
audible spin noise.
14. Covering the internal microphone with a finger may cause a highfrequency noise.
