Hi.
My travelmate 6293 works perfectly on battery but the second I plug it in, it turns off and starts a random power loop where the buttons light up (no display) and then shuts off, repeat.
I bought a new charger, still no change, I tested the memory in another laptop, no problems, I took out the hard drive, tried the memory in every possible combination and still no luck.
I even sourced the original docking station, but the same problem persists.
Any help or advice please?
I am great with desktops but laptops are my enemy. I love the old acer machines so I would be more than happy to have it working.

Dumb question as you say your fairly good with computers not laptops 100% but still computer is a computer smaller form, so have been making sure to keep the drivers and bios up to date?
