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.

Long beep and continue acer motherboard N1996.


1. Beep codes indicates that there is some problem with your RAM memory sticks installed into your computer motherboard.
2. For detailed information about the beep codes, refer your motherboard user manual as there are different kind of beep notifications for different problems.
3. Try removing the RAM from your motherboard, clean of any dust, replace it back to the motherboard and try starting your system. Repeat the step for atleast 10 times, until your system starts up.
4. If still the problem, persists, try replacing your RAM and try again as this will help us to find out if the problem is with RAM or not.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Please rate the solution provided.
Thanks

ACER Travelmart 2400 makes loud beep sound


Here is the link to your service manual Make sure that you save yourself a copy to keep as a reference. Look on page 60, that is in the troubleshooting section and goes over the meaning of the beep codes. This will help narrow down the problem or even give you the answer you need.

Acer Travelmate beeps 4 times & wont boot


Sounds like a RAM problem. Best bet is to purchase a stick of RAM from a store that will let you try it and return it if the problem is not solved. The beeping is a BIOS error code that signifies that something is wrong with your hardware.

If you have 2 sticks of RAM installed try removing one of them and then if the beep code happens again try to swap them out.

My acer aspire 5100 hanga after desktop and has a long continuous beep, please help??


Sounds like a bad key on your keypad. Try taping all keys, one at a time, to see if the beep goes away. If this fails to resolve the issue then it is probably a bad motherboard that will need repair or replacement.

ACER Aspire- beeping sound - 6seconds when I power machine on


The beeps are telling you there is a hardware failure (POST). The number and length of beeps will give a better indication as to what has failed. Write back with that info and someone on this web site will interpret this for you.
