    Yeah, pretty simple, eh. I just bought this and certainly did not expect Acer to inflict a screensaver on me. Thanks.

Beep means you computer good or damage conduction denote. If one beep and you laptop start then good conduction. If one long beep and laptop not start then you RAM damage position. But you say you laptop start then not problem in beep sound. And you touchpad not working so i suggest you contact good engineer.

As soon as i log into my acer desktop, it logs off

Do you get any message indicating as to why? Try booting up into Safe Mode.

Restart your PC and then begin tapping the F8 key. Eventually you will be prompted with a list of options. Select Safe Mode with Networking.
If you can log into your system this way without being immediately logged out; you may be able to use System Restore to revert your system back to a time before this started happening. There are several things that could be causing this and rather than walk you through each one right away I figure we should try this first.

Use this tutorial video to walk you through performing a system restore.

you need to run your antivirus program. If don't have one go to and download the free version of the antispyware program this has saved me a few time. I hoped I helped you.

Whenever i turn my acer on the screen doesnt show up and i know it is on, one time i started to be able to see the screen dimly but the contrast wouldnt turn up! please help

Try shining a flashlight or a lamp on the screen and see if you can faintly see the Windows desktop in the background. If you can then the problem is the backlight. Laptop screens have a light that shines from behind the screen and lets you see the display. If this is a laptop computer it will need to go in for service. If this is a monitor for a desktop computer you can try turning it on and off a few times, or leave it unplugged for a few hours and try it again but failing that it also needs service.

How to replace the inverter on a gateway laptop

Fairly easy operation and is standard accross laptops for years.

Get yourself some microdrive screwdrivers
This is all slow and steady..if you get annoyed or frustrated at any stage, walk away for a few minutes and take a breath.
  • Carefully remove the rubber stoppers at the top and bottom of the screen and put aside (you need these to go back in later)
  • Remove the screws and set aside (get a magnet to hold onto them if you can..they have a tendancy to run away)
  • Very gently starting at the middle bottom, lift the bezel up and out slightly. You will hear it pop as it releases.
  • Move around and do one side, then the other side leaving the top intact.
  • When you have the 3 sides free, start along the top. You will have to slide the lid catches out of the way to pop it near those sections and is why it is left until last.
  • After you have the bezel removed, you will be able to see the inverter at the bottom (sometimes on the side)
  • Remove the plugs from both ends being careful not to break any of the connectors, and install the new inverter
Test the laptop before you put it all back together.
Hope that helps =)
