I suspect bad memory. Have you worked on it recently? Make sure the memory is in and seated properly. Same with processor and adapter cards.

If you havn't worked on it or opened it, and don't feel comfortable opening it up, you might want to take it to a computer repair place.

That's an error code.you can find out what number of beeps for your machine mean through google, usually three or four means ram memory chips are playing up.sometimes cured by reseating them.if there is more than one take them all out and the put them back one at a time .you may find the faulty one that way. cmos battery exhausted will give continous beeps.

IBM ThinkCentre M51 does no boots


different pc has different bios beeps depends on the bios manufacturer, but in your situation it is most likely you have problem with your video device. is it connected in video card or directly plug in the built in video port of the pc? if its connected in video card, remove video card temporarily then connect it to built in video ports, or vice versa, if your in built in video port you can try testing it with video card in pcie slot.

I have an ACER Aspire AST 180-UD360A. Was working fine till yesterday. Turned it on and Acer logo came on with "enter setup F12" then went black - dead. Computer does not turn on at all. Checked power...


From what you describe, you issue could well be the hard drive. Turn the system on, then press f12 to enter the setup, see if the system stays running. While there, if it stays on, see if the hard drive is detected.

If the HDD is detected, see if you can run diags on the drive.

Other options, boot to the Windows Media and see if the system stays running there. (you may have to remove the hard drive to do this)

If the system runs in any of these and will not boot to the hard drive at all, then there is a good possibility that the drive is bad, and you may well have lost your data.

If the system continues to power off, even with the HDD removed, then the motherboard is likely the failure.

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.

The beeps that you are hearing are messages created by the POST (Power On Self Test) to indicate that something is wrong. If you know your motherboard type it is possible to find the documentation explaining what 3 beeps mean.

Because we don't know the motherboard type (At least for now) let's use the common sense.  Did you verify that the power supply is properly connected to the drive?  Can you confirm that removing the second Hard drive it boot again ok? In some type of BIOS 3 beeps means memory problem. By accident did you touch the memory? Are all the ribbon cables well plugged in?
