Preventing static electricity discharge

Warning: To avoid exposure to dangerous electrical voltages and moving parts, turn off your notebook, remove the battery, and unplug the power cord, modem cable, and network cable before opening the case.

Warning: To prevent risk of electric shock, do not insert any object into the vent holes of the notebook.

Important: Before performing maintenance on the notebook, you should read and understand the information in this section.

The components inside your notebook are extremely sensitive to static electricity, also known as

electrostatic discharge

(ESD).

Before performing maintenance on the notebook, follow these guidelines:

Avoid static-causing surfaces such as carpeted floors, plastic, and packing foam.

Remove components from their antistatic bags only when you are ready to use them. Do not lay components on the outside of antistatic bags because only the inside of the bags provide electrostatic protection.

Always hold components by their edges. Avoid touching the edge connectors.

Never slide components over any surface.

Wear a grounding wrist strap (available at most electronics stores) and attach it to a bare metal part of your workbench or other grounded connection.

Touch a bare metal surface on your workbench or other grounded object.

Tape

Some of the procedures in this guide involve removing tape that holds cables or components.

Two types of tape are used in this notebook:

Mylar, non-conductive tape is typically transparent, with a red or brown tint.

Conductive tape is typically grey or silver.

If the existing tape cannot be reused, replace it with the same type (conductivity) of tape. Both types of replacement tape should be non-ESD generating tape.

Do not use cellophane tape.

52

Chapter 3: Replacing notebook components

Preparing your work space

Before performing maintenance on the notebook, make sure that your work space and the notebook are correctly prepared.

Wear a grounding (ESD) wrist strap, and use a grounded or dissipative work mat.

Use a stable and strong table, and make sure that the table top is large enough to hold each component as you remove it.

Use bright lighting to make part identification easier.

Keep your work surface free from clutter and dust that may damage components.

Use a magnetized screwdriver for removing screws.

When removing components that are attached to the notebook by a cable, unplug the cable before removing the screws, when possible, to avoid damaging the cable.

As you remove components and screws, lay them toward the rear of your work surface (behind the notebook) or far enough to the side that your arms do not accidentally brush them onto the floor.

To help keep track of screws, try the following:

Place each component’s screws in their own section of a parts sorter.

Place each component’s screws next to the component on your work surface.

Print the first page of each task, then place the page toward the rear of your work surface. As you remove screws, place the screws in their respective boxes on the page.

After loosening screws that are deeply recessed in a hole (for example, on the bottom of the base assembly), you can leave the screws in the holes if you place small pieces of masking tape over the hole openings. When reassembling the component, just remove the tape and tighten the screws.

When you place flat-headed screws on your work surface, stand them on their heads to prevent the screws from rolling off the table.

The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this notebook:

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting

137

Numeric keypad

External keyboard

If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat the failing operation.

Testing the memory

Memory errors can stop your programs, show error messages on the screen, or hang the system.

To test the memory:

1

2

3

4

Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostics program.

Run the Memory Test and see if the test completes successfully.

Press F2 in the test items.

Follow the instructions in the message window.

Note: Make sure that each memory card is fully installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an error.

Testing the power system

To test for a power problem:

1

Turn on the notebook using each of the following power sources:

Remove the battery pack, connect the power adapter, then make sure that the notebook turns on using AC power.

Disconnect the power adapter, install a charged battery pack, then make sure that power is supplied by the battery pack.

If you suspect a power problem, complete the appropriate power supply check:

“Check the power adapter” on page 138

“Check the battery pack” on page 139

Check the power adapter

Unplug the power adapter cable from the notebook and measure the output voltage at the power adapter cable plug. See the following figure.

Pin 1: +19 to +20.5V

Pin 2: 0V, Ground

138

1

2

If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter.

If the voltage is within the range, do the following:

Replace the system board.

If the problem is not corrected, see “Undetermined problems” on page 153 .

If the voltage is not correct, go to Step 3 .

Note: An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate a defect.

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting

4

If the power-on indicator does not light up, check the power adapter’s power cord for correct continuity and installation.

If the operational charge does not work, see “Check the battery pack” on page 139

.

Check the battery pack

To check the battery pack using software:

1

2

3

Open Power Management in the Windows Control Panel.

In Power Meter, make sure that the parameters shown for Current Power Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct.

Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter. This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging.

To check the battery pack using hardware:

1

2

3

Turn off the notebook.

Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1 (+) and 6 (ground).

If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.

Note: To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed in the notebook.

If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Re-install the battery pack.

If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.

Testing the touchpad

If the touchpad doesn’t work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem.

1

2

3

Reconnect the touchpad cables.

Replace the touchpad.

Replace the system board.

Important: Do not replace a non-defective FRU.

After you use the touchpad, the pointer may drift on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure 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.

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting

139

Power-On Self-Test (POST) error message

The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes. The most likely cause is listed first.

Note: Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in the FRU/Action column. If the FRU replacement does not solve the problem, put the original part back in the notebook. Do not replace a non-defective FRU.

This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when servicing a notebook.

If the symptom is not listed,

see “Undetermined problems” on page 153 .

The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and the error symptoms classified by function.

Note: Most of the error messages occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware device, such as the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the way it has been configured.

Note: If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus, reset the notebook, enter Setup, and install Setup defaults or correct the error.

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting

151

Intermittent problems

Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a hardware defect. These reasons include: cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement should be considered only when a recurring problem exists.

To analyze an intermittent problem:

1

Run the advanced diagnostic test for the system board in loop mode at least ten times.

If any error is detected, replace the FRU.

2

If no error is detected, do not replace any FRU.

Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.

152

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting

Undetermined problems

If the diagnostic test may not identify which adapter or device failed, which installed devices are incorrect, whether a short circuit is suspected, or whether the system is inoperative. Use these procedures to isolate the failing FRU (do not isolate a non-defective FRU).

Note: Verify that all attached devices are supported by the notebook.

Note: Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the failure is operating correctly. (

See “Testing the power system” on page 138.

):

To isolate a failing FRU:

1

2

3

Turn off the notebook.

Visually check FRU parts for damage. If you identify any damage, replace the FRU.

Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:

Non-Acer devices

Printer, mouse, and other external devices

Battery pack

Hard disk drive(s)

4

5

SO-DIMM

Optical drive

PC Cards and Type 54 ExpressCards

Turn on the notebook.

Determine if the problem has changed.

If the problem does not recur, reconnect the removed devices one at a time until you find the failing FRU.

If the problem does recur, replace the following FRUs one at a time:

System board

LCD assembly

Important: Do not replace a non-defective FRU.

Clearing password check and BIOS recovery

This section provides you with the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for Travelmate 7730/7730G. The system board has one Hardware Open Gap for clearing the password check, and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS recovery.

Clearing the password check

Hardware Open Gap Description:

Default Setting

Open (Normal)

Operation Description

Short (Clearing Password Check)

Locating the hardware gap on the system board

Gap name in Travelmate 7730/7730G is G71

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check

If users set the BIOS password (Supervisor password and/or User password) for a security reason,

BIOS will ask the password during system POST or when the system enters the BIOS Setup Utility.

To bypass the password check, users need to short the hardware gap to clear the password.

To clear the BIOS password:

1

2

3

4

Disconnect the power adapter and remove the battery from the notebook.

Turn off the notebook and remove hard disk drive. <Athena: both hard drives?>

For more information, see “Replacing the primary hard drive” on page 64

and

“Replacing the secondary hard drive” on page 73 .

Open the <Athena: which cover?> cover of the machine.

Locate the hardware gap. <Athena: can you help me find it on the system board?

Richard: Need to shoot new pic once we know where the gap is.>

158

5

Use the blade of a flat screwdriver to short the two points of the gap.

Chapter 5: Jumper and connector locations

9

Plug in the power adapter while keeping the screwdriver on the gap, and press the power button to turn on the notebook.

After the BIOS POST has finished, remove the tool from the gap.

Restart the notebook. Press the F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.

If are not prompted for a password, then the BIOS passwords have been cleared.

If you are prompted for a password, repeat the procedure.

Note: This procedure only clears the BIOS password (Supervisor password and User password). It does not clear a hard drive password.

Reassemble the notebook.

BIOS Recovery by Crisis Diskette

BIOS Recovery Boot Block

BIOS Recovery Boot Block is a special block of BIOS. It is used to boot up the notebook with minimum BIOS initialization. Users can enable this feature to restore the BIOS firmware to a successful one once the previous BIOS flashing process failed.

BIOS Recovery Hotkey

The notebook provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, to enable BIOS Recovery process when notebook is powered on during BIOS POST. If this function is enabled, the notebook forces the

BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called Boot Block.

Important: To use this function, it is strongly recommended that you have the AC adapter plugged in and a charged battery in the battery bay.

Creating a Crisis Diskette

Before completing this procedure you should prepare a Crisis Diskette. The Crisis Diskette could be made by executing the Crisis Disk program in another notebook <Athena: Can it be any notebook or does it need to be an Acer notebook? Does it need to have a similar BIOS?> with

Windows XP OS.

BIOS Recovery using a Crisis Diskette

To complete a BIOS Recovery using a Crisis Diskette:

1

2

3

4

Turn off the notebook.

Connect a USB diskette drive to the notebook, then insert the Crisis Diskette into the drive.

With the notebook turned off, press and hold Fn+Esc, then press the power button.

The notebook should start with Crisis BIOS Recovery process running.

BIOS Boot Block restores the BIOS code from the Crisis Diskette to the BIOS ROM on the notebook.

The notebook automatically restarts after the Crisis flashing process is finished.

The notebook should have a working BIOS. At this point, a user can update the

BIOS to the latest version using the regular BIOS flashing process.
