Question about Acer TravelMate 292LCi Notebook

1 Answer

Beeping battery Recently my Acer TravelMate292LCi has started emitting a loud beeping noise when turned on which only seems to stop when I unplug it from the mains. I presume it has something to do with the battery, but on none of the occasions has the battery been close to running out. When I plug in my charger it doesn't register with the machine and I have to poke at it or twist it to get it to register while the screen flickers. This I'm not too surprised at as my headphones socket is totally destroyed and needs replacing, but I'm more worrried about the beeping and whether it means i'll have to get the charger socket thingy replaced as well. The sockets in seem to be a weak point on the acer:(

Hello. Laptops have a numerous protections and warning systems. It is good that the thing makes sounds, beeps or whatever. If it hadn't and something got rong then i would suspect a hardware failure on the motherboard (burned out components, short circuits or open circuits and so on). You should however take it to a service center to have it examined. By twisting it you may accidentally make an undesired contact between component. The thing beeps because of a failure in stabilising a tension on a chip related to power on signals. It hasn't anything to do with the battery altrought both battery and ac power are controlled by the same chip when it comes to powering on signals. This isn't a hard to fix defect nor an expensive one. There are probabbly, as you say, some faulty contacts. Don't worry about the beeps and errors, they are safety issues.

Make sure oven is plugged into a grounded outlet, and that the outlet is actually grounded.
Although extremely rare, I have seen ovens where insects were walking on the back side of a control panel, and causing problems. Could also just be some sort of electronic failure.

Acer 5742g Beep at boot up


I have a problem that looks like this one.

At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

Any clue?

My acer aspitre 5733Z makes a loud beeping noise on a black screen and won't stop until i shut it off? I tried disconnecting the battery but its not that?


First, try removing the battery and unplugging the laptop. While still unplugged and with the battery still out, press the power button for 30 seconds or so (this will release the static electricity inside). Then put the battery back in and start it up again. This is called a hard reset, and it will fix a number of problems.

Beeping noise


I've had the Dell 1720dn at my desk for years. Worked flawlessly. Moved it to a different workstation and it began beeping immediately while printing. Another site said to plug it directly into the wall, instead of a battery backup. I unplugged it from the battery backup outlet, and plugged into a surge protector only outlet on the same battery backup unit.... NO MORE BEEPING. Hope this helps someone else.
