3 long beeps with my Elitegroup ECS Green 320 laptop

I was working with my laptop when the screen just got dark, I thought it was the autoshutdown of the screen, but it did not respond even when moving the touchpad or pressing the keyboard I force shutdown it by pressing the power button and press the power button again, it booted, but then froze again and did the black screen again, I noticed the harddrive was not lighting I tried removing and putting back the hard drive and it did not work and started to give 3 long beeps, I tried removing the battery and RAM card from their slots then put them back and put on my unit, still the three long beeps what could have happened? I'm not a computer engineer, could I remedy the problem myself through your step by step guide? the specs of my computer: Elitegroup ECS G320 Laptop VIA C3 NEHEMIAH 1.2GHZ / 256 MD DDR (SODIUM) VIA CLE 226 / COMBO DVD/CD RW, 14.11" XGA TFT (1028 X 768) 32 MB SMA, SHARED UP TO 64 MB / AC 97' CPU VIA C3 Nehemiah up to 1.2GHZ CPU, 64KB L2 cache on die, CPU front-side bus up to 133MHz 376 pin EBGA Core Logic North bridge VIA VT8623, South bridge VT8235 4X AGP bus interface Supports host bus at 66 MHz AGP v2.0 compliant 3.3V PCI version 2.2 compliance ACPI v1.0 USB 2.0 compatible PS/2 keyboard/mouse support System BIOS: AMI BIOS please help, many thanks in advance! brye

Let's start with the most overlooked reason. Sounds like the battery died. Is your laptop's battery fully charged. Plug it in over night and give it a good chance to recharge the battery. Then turn on your laptop WITH the power cable attached. Did this solve your problem? If not we'll go to the next step.

    OK next step. Can you get into the BIOS? If you can check and see if all the hardware is recognized. Check for the memory.

    3 long beeps you say? With the AMI BIOS, which I missed he first time, indicates "memory" failure with the 2 or 3 beeps.

    Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips but you'll need another chip. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

If you cangatehr this much of information you are no less than a computer engineer. Nobody needs to build a car to change its tyre. If you arrange a spare HDD and RAM, remove the original HDD and try to install windows on that. And if problem persists do the same with RAM also. I am sure you could solve this problem yourslef.

My ECS A530 laptop displays only green vertical lines. can someone please help?


Sounds like you have a bad LCD screen, hook up a computer monitor on the video output located on the back of your Laptop, if the monitor produces a nice clean picture, suspect the LCD screen on your Laptop.
