My Acer Laptop died last night after 4 years of use its finnally died.. The HD, Memory, CD-DVD-REwriter all works perfect.. The screen doesnt switch on.. The computer turns on but just stops completely. So thats down to a motherboard issue.. The cause ? Powersupply i had trouble ages ago with the connection i sorted it out but it's seemed to have gotten worse ? No idea how it got so bad as i didnt have any issues with it but seems to have Surged big time and killed the motherboard but im glad everything is saved on the HD. Know the big question is does anyone know where to get the Laptop ide converter cable from and if so can anyone point me in the right direction.. Cheers..

P.S. on my gaming PC laugh

I can call in and lend it to ye tomoz on me way back from the better halfs if you want. Will be tomorrow afternoonish, got it with me so you just put yours in heh.

Otherwise, when would be best for you?? The 2.5" - 3.5" convertor is quite a bit faster, but the USB 2.0 caddy is pretty darn fast too imho.

I dont mind posting the 2.5" - 3.5" converor through the letterbox for ye if ye want matey, I hardly ever use it so you can use it at you're lesuire and just lemme know when you have finished with it.

Only bought it cos I was in a similar situation to yourself at one time.

Yeah, yeah so did I, although it has been alright lately...

Would be intrested as well... seems another flaw of Acer's could be the quality of the components they use in their power supplies etc...

Hope it stays that way; from the looks of things just from these forums, Acer seem to have random problems with their power components.

Mind you, from the after-sales support aspect of the company, id never buy a laptop from them again.

Nothing particuarly wrong the laptops, until they go wrong. I think ill stick to HP in the future as it seems its 50/50 to how you're experience with Acer will be.
