RL80 can't boot one short beep?


Sometimes a memory module will go falty. Try taking one out and seeing if it runs. Then try it with the other one and see if it runs. If it runs with one and not the other then you have a faulty memory module. Also if you have any PCI cards that you can remove, it might work with them removed.

All i get is a beeping My gt5220 will not boot...help


Does there seem to be a pattern to the beeps? (long beep, pause, long beep or 3 beeps and a pause) The codes will depend on the motherboard and BIOS manufacturer. One of the Gateway code lists: http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Intel2/WMEBLKD925XBCLK/WMEBLKD925XBCLKfaq17.shtml .

One beep is a CPU error. Three beeps is a memory error - you can remove and reseat the memory one stick at a time to find a bad stick causing them all to fail. Eight beeps is a video error.

I hope this helps.

Hi John. If you already swaped the Memory, it's the video card. I'm giving you what the beep means according to the different types of BIOS, because basically Ascent is a clone PC. I hope it helps.
(you will have to open the computer to see the BIOS type.)

can not reinstall os on mt acer 246lc it bleeps 4 times and swithes off


Without knowing what motherboard is in the unit - it will be difficult to determine what the 4 beeps means.

Generally, 4 beeps means issues with :

- memory
- video card
- keyboard
- motherboard failure

Things to try -

- make sure there is no keys stuck down
- remove the battery and AC adapter, remove and re-install the memory sticks (reseating the memory)

If this does not work, your problem may be more serious. Let us know the results of the above suggestions.
