SOURCE: ACER Aspire- beeping sound - 6seconds when I power machine on

The beeps are telling you there is a hardware failure (POST). The number and length of beeps will give a better indication as to what has failed. Write back with that info and someone on this web site will interpret this for you.

SOURCE: trying to update bios get message about a jumper.

Below is the link to the service manual for your desktop. On page 84 is a picture of the motherboard and a list of the components including the cmos jumper location for clearing cmos. It is located under the SATA ports.

When I go to the bios settings on my aspire mc605 it won't let me override the onboard graphics settings, I need to disable this to fit a new graphics card


You can disable onboard graphic on BIOS. Make changes to start on discrete graphic not dual graphic ( discrete vga+onboard vga )

Will not boot to operating system or the bios. no messages and no beeps


You probably have a bad power supply or one of your components is bad. I don't have enough info to point to anything specific, but here is some ideas you can try.
1) unplug all components internally but the power supply and check for bios beeps. Not the front panel wires though.
2) swap power supply or check with voltmeter for +5vdc, +12vdc, and -12vdc.
3) check for operation of fans attached to motherboard.
4) most likely suspects are motherboard, processor, or power supply.

Acer Aspire One continuous beeping at power on, until Windows screen comes on


Need to check the BIOS beep codes but I'm fairly sure that continuous beeping on boot is a display adaptor card issue. If you don't see anything on the screen until that point it may be something is set wrongly for the display within BIOS and it can't sort it out until Windows takes control of the system.

Bios reset on a acer aspire 1640z


To reset the bios in a laptop you need to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Once you do that press and hold the power button for 45 seconds then put the battery back on and plug it in and then try starting it. Everything in the bios will be reset to the factory. 
Good Luck

BLANK SCREEN-ACER ASPIRE 3661


You can check the little indicator light on the notebook.

If the hard drive was dead, that wouldn't cause the display to go blank.
If your problem was with your hard drive, you would still get the BIOS screen and then a message about being unable to load an operating system. So, I doubt if that is the problem.

My guess is that you have a relatively serious motherboard, video card, memory, or CPU problem.

When you turn it on, does it beep ? If so, how many times ? You can translate these beep codes at: http://networking.ringofsaturn.com/PC/beep.php __________________

the vga board has failed, its a very common problem in acer laptops, you can get a replacement part from www.acerparts.com im not sure if they ship into us but for europe thats where I get my parts.
my acers vga failed two times, ones within warranty and 12months after that, I have to say that acer products are really bad quality, I'm not sure about the latest models but from what I've seen the vga chipsets have real issues with the motherboards and keep failing over and over again.


I have not looked inside your model but the vga is either integrated into the motherboard = that means the repair will cost the whole motherboard, better to buy a new one.

if your model has a removeable vga like mine does, then you can consider changeing it to a new one. contact acer parts.

One of the covers in the bottom is the memory, one is network and last one I don't remember.
here are the contact details if your acer is out of warranty
http://www.acerparts.com/contact_us.php

The parts for your model are at http://www.acerparts.com/index.php?cPath=561_562_1064

you will have to contact acer parts directly, it may be that the vga is build into the motherboard or then the vga parts are not listed.


Hope this may help;


Regards,
VOTIT
