New Acer Aspire laptop 5560-7402 beeping and flickering

I've been getting a sporadic double beep since yesterday. A little while ago, it was driving me nuts but at the moment, it's quiet (ah, spoke too soon). I tried several 'fixes' that I found online but none of them worked. Then I noticed that the screen flickers and sometimes the power icon flips from adapter to battery even though the laptop is plugged in and fully charged. This laptop is a little more than a month old - is it possible there's a problem with the power jack already? Thanks!

    Max, Thank you for the reply. I'm out of the country for a few more days, so I ended up unplugging it from the socket for about 10 seconds, then plugging it back in. Hasn't beeped since. I'll contact Acer when I return, though. Thanks again!

    The country you were/are in is the voltage different? That my have "confused" the transformer, 110v to 220v . Some South American countries the voltage is a bit iffy .Glad to here your problem is solved.

If it's new, return it A.S.A.P. for repair/replace, Unless it's been damaged or theated harshly, their is no reason for it to be giving you trouble in a month. If the AC jack is pulled, yanked, tugged...etc. it could damage the inside connections of the AC jack.

The problem is most likely (85% sure) with the DC Jack itself, that is one of the rarer issues with it. Since it is a 2-state switch, the likelihood of both circuits closing is my guess. And also the cheapest repair. I have been completely through the A75 without a schematic, and have to remember it's quirks in design.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5720Z Notebook - Screen flickers, goes blank then comes back on when screen/lid is adjusted

In most cases like that,where we have screen flickering,first look at the graphics card maybe the signal flex from the back of the screen is well fixed on the motherboard.then if it is well fixed on the board you will need to look at the signal board at the back of the screen maybe it is well fixed if it is not well fixed then fix it properly to solve ur problem then if the problem still persist then u will need to disable the VGA in device manager.to get to device manager u will need to open my computer and after that, u can right-click on it and then click on propertise then click on hardware and then click on device manager where u can disable the VGA.

SOURCE: Acer Laptop Screen Flickers & Jumps

Hello,



Please connect the laptop to an external monitor. If no flickering on monitor screen, from my previous experience, this is more likely loose connection of video cable connected to the LCD. So talk to Acer support again and require the replacement of LCD.

SOURCE: Hellow Dear, My acer aspire 4935

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

I have a Dell Latitude C610; after initial 'DELL' screen comes up, the laptop gives one 'beep' then black screen and nothing more- power's still there; can get into setup and boot...


This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
http://www.nullamatix.com/dell-diagnostic-beep-code-troublshooting-chart/
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

I am having Acer Aspire 5738 which i am using every day since 11/2 year. Yesterday When I switched on the laptop it was beeping during the startup for a 1 min or so say 10 to 15 beeps and then it stopped...


Does it now work ok??
Does it boot up without the beeps?
You could try reseating the memory. Take it out and put it back in, most beeps at startup are memory.
It may also have been a key stuck on the keyboard.
