Hi am trying to mend an acer 2300 travelmate which won't boot up. when turned on lights appear but doesn't beep.So far i have

* removed hard drive and slaved in caddy hard drive was fine and all work is saved.

* tried to boot with battery removed still no joy

* tried safe mode no joy

* tried to boot from home xp disc - nothing

* attached to external monitor - nothing

I'm thinking it is either the cpu or motherboard but not sure how to proceed. Also cannot get hold on manual when i go on acer site manual page won't appear!!!!

Remove battery and power cable then hold the power on button for 20 seconds. Replace battery and power supply and cross fingers!
