Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

CPU bleeping constantly.

After being moved my grandsons computer when put back on bleeped constantly. Tried all the leads - changed them over to his sisters who has the same set up but to no avail. Could dust in the CPU do this or do you think something inside has become dislodged.

The monitor just come on (blue light) says Acer and then no signal and then the light turns orange. Still the bleeping goes on.

Help. A Nanny in distress...

Yes that means the computer has failed POST. So yes, something has come loose or has got damaged.

"POST" is an acronym for Power On Self-Test. The POST process checks the basic system functions before attempting to load an operating system. It checks RAM, processor, drives, system interface, etc. If POST fails, the system will normally halt and may produce a series of beeps from the computer speaker which can help indicate the cause of the problem.

Why does my acer aspire z5761 keep freezing and has horizontal lines across screen and constant bleep?


You probably somehow killed the screen. Did you drop it or bang it into something? You can try downloading and replacing the drivers, but I doubt that will help. Lines on the screen are usually a physical problem, not software related.

You may try a Windows Restore if your machine has that ability. Some do, depending on who you bought it from. Again, doubful it will help, but worth a shot.

Need more information on the bleep. When does it bleep? Constantly? When you touch the screen? Or when you boot it up? What kind of bleeps? One? Several? Long? Short? Both? Repeating sequence?

How do i shwitch of service leads volvo s40? guys plz hellp me whit this ! i done service but led is still working :( how i can turn this off ?whitout service cpu.


With ignition off, press and hold button for trip mileage, then put on cignition and hold for about 10 secs, when the display should clear and you should hear a BLEEP, then release the button, You must release the button within 4 seconds of the BLEEP. Switch off ignition. Then switch ignition back on, should be clear.
Hope this helps

Wont switch on


Hi,

Did you try to reset the phone.

Normal Reset (*#7780#) : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc)

Deep Reset (*#7370#) : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

Hard reset
Press Call + 3 + * simultaneously during the bootup phase, forces the N95 to do a complete wipe of internal memory.
This will reset the phone back to 100% standard factory configuration.
