I've got a bit of a problem with my Acer travelmate 2003LC.
It won't boot up, at all. You turn it on, and you can hear the fans whirring, but nothing happens.
It's been like this for quite a while - close to two years now, as I've been unable to do anything with it, and no spare money to take into a repair shop.
It was out of warrenty when it broke, and having been given the run around the last few times I called Acer, I wasn't in a rush to get back in touch with them.
