Question about Acer TravelMate 252LMi Notebook
On pushing the power up button the fans starts and the hard drive appears to start be it then bleeps four times and shuts off? Is it a faulty hard drive?
Depending on the manufacturer of motherboard, usually 4 beeps indicates a memory error. To check, do the following. Warning: try to do this in an area free of static electricity. 1. Your user manual should show you where the panel is to access the memory. You will beed a small screwdriver (or sharp tip of an old steak-knife) to get the screws off. 2. Most memory errors are caused by memory that needs to be "reseated". You will see the memory looks like it is lying flat on the mother board. There are two clips on the side that should be pushed back to allow the memory to "pop" off the rail. 3. Gently, but firmly push the memory back down into place. It should quietly snap back into place. 4. reassemble panel. If this does not fix the issue, there is a more serious motherboard issue. You will need to call the Manufacturer (Acer) to determine if the system is under warranty for replacement parts. Hope this helps. d.
