The beeping is probably coming from the motherboard. Open the case up and on the motherboard there is a small battery on it try taking that out for a few mins and put it back in and try again

Acer aspire t690 will not turn on goes on but will not bootit makes long beeps please help me


Depending on frequency of beeps and what you get on screen it could be a failed component or BIOS reset required.

If you have a warranty (or even if you don't) then phone Acer tech support and they will usually give you advice.

Hello,

If one beep is coming while turning on this means the system is ok. If there is some issue with display please check cable for monitor once.

Thanks

Constant beep and wont boot up


that means you have a hardware failure, if it continuously beeps that means the gfx card ( video card) is not being recognized by the motherboard, but also it could be your ram. And Did you overclock your pc? If so, you failed at the over clock and you need to reset bios to defaults by taking out the lithium battery while its disconected from power. Let pc site for 20 min with no power and battery, once 20 min pass put battery back in and power up pc. Still no boot and constant beep make sure all cards are fully seated ( video card, sound card ect. ) and make sure the power cables are fully inserted as well. hopefully no hardware has to be replaced

Chases open


if the system continues to show this error after the case has been closed correctly, then check the connection inside the case.....if good then enter bios at startup and turn the feature off and the message will stop.

When turned on,makes long buzz, no video,rest of pc still runs


Do you mean beep? Beeping may occur due to RAM corruption (indicated by three long beeps). Failure of input or output devices may also cause beeping. first unplug the RAM, if the same beep continues, then the culprit is RAM. if not,then replug it and unplug the KeyBoard. do the same with the rest of the I/O devices. Also try to put ur processor in ur frens PC, and vice versa, then u'll know if ur processor or the motherboard is not working.
