Try removing the CMOS Battery
First check to see if the memory is the correct match.
After sitting the memory sticks remove the COMS battery.(looks like a watch battery) connected to the mother board. Give yourself thirty second and re seat the CMOS Battery than try stating your computer.

My acer veriton desk top is not booting up and giving a beep continues beep also moniter is not displyaing omething


This is likely a result of the computer not recognizing the monitor. During the POST test during startup,the computer will check for a video output. It can range from the video card failing to just not having the monitor plugged in. I would check you connections, perhaps try a different monitor, even a television that has either HDMI, DVI, or VGA input. If that does not fix it, it is likely your graphics card or on board graphics from the motherboard. Is there anything new since the last time the computer worked? How old is your PC?

3 long beeps on bootup,black screen,gateway atxeg lx3 700s po4


This is an indication that there is a memory issue. Reseat the memory in the computer and try again. If this fails and you have two or more sticks of memory, try just one in a slot at a time. Hope fully one chip will fail and you have found your bad memory chip. If all chips fail in one slot, try the other, this would incate a bad slot on the mother board.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Computer boots up and gives beeping noise, and monitor fails to detect computer.


Two components inside your computer is causing thins beeping sound. If the beeping like this, beeeep beeeep beeeep beeeep , then you have a problem with your memory card, clean your memory card and try to boot it again. If this doesent work, replace your memory card. If the beeping sound goes, beeeep beeeep bip bip. Then you have a problem with your video card. Try to clean it first, then reboot. If this has no effect, repace your video card... I hope this would have a positive effect on your computer. Have a nice day my friend.

PC can't boot LEDs are all Amber colour and flashing.


the memory sticks are not connected properly as you are getting the beeps out of the computer when turning on...
if in case the memory cards are connected properly the system should not beep while turning it on so please try to reconnect the memory cards properly & see if you are getting the prompt"the amount of system memory has changed" coming up in that case the system is working fine.

Computer won't boot up


there is problem in your hardware, if you are using a video card which is not on board temporarily uninstall this and use the on board to determine if this is a video card problem. if it does not boot then, try to exchange the location of your ram memory if you are using one or two, this way you can check if this is ram memory problem
