SOURCE: Acer T180 powered up all i get is beeping . From the hard

The beeps you refer to are known as "computer beep codes" and may also be known as "computer post codes" although they are in fact slightly different with the post code being the more technically descriptive of the two.

These are very descriptive and can tell you exactly where to home in on the problem.

In the back of your manual should be a list of these beeps and if you listen very carefully the are quite similar to morse code it is this distinction the gives you the information. If its not there then you should go here

http://www.postcodemaster.com/

You need to scroll down to the beep codes.

or try here

http://www.pantherproducts.co.uk/Articles/Motherboard/BIOSbeep.shtml

Sometimes it is just a matter of opening the computer (good time to blast the dust bunnis with a $3 can of compressed air (outside of course) and then remove each connection (one at a time) and reconnect before doing the next one.

You should do this with all the cards, rem, and cables. (computer off AND disconnected during the above)

If any of the connections seem difficult the look for a small pusf in latch on one side of it and push it in whilst wiggling the connection gently.

When you have done connect and try your computer again.

If you were lucky it may now work again. If not you may have to seek more help at your local repair shop.

Had this issue with two Acers of similar make. Replacing the Motherboard resolved the issue on both.

The acer veriton m460 has three faulty capacitors. Check and see if you have bulgy capacitors. I have ten of these computers and all have three blown capacitors.

Acer aspire l100 will not boot but fans run


Try removing/disconnecting the hard drive and see if the BIOS boots up, if it does the HDD is causing the problem. Are you getting any beeping codes on start up, if so how many and hoe long in between?

Acer aspire 9300. Get 3 loud beeps when trying to boot. Will not boot.


3 beeps usually indicate a memory failure. if you have more than one memory module try powering the computer with just one of the memory modules installed.

I have no screen on my acer aspire 9300 it powers up and then I get three beeps the first longer than the second two and then just a blank screen?? Please help


Hello,
When you hear some beeps before a computer boot it means that it didn't pass the POST (Power On Self Test) phase. Taking note of the sequence of the beeps and checking the manual should tell you the reason, for example bad memory, no HD found, bad processor, etc....

Looking at your model manual here below the codes are not indicated but Acer ask to call their tech support (see page 43)

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS%209300_7000%20User%20Manual.pdf

Anyway the 1 beep long and 2 short means 1 long, 2 indicate a video error and the Bios cannot initialize the video screen to display additional information.

You may have to replace the video card.

regards

Acer Aspire T 180 stops with Acer Logo


What you were trying to do tried to remove the RAM and boot your pc. Buddy once you remove your RAM you are going to get long beeps as it tells there is no RAM on mother board and it won't boot. Just install back all the things and let me know how many beeps you are getting and what type short and long.

Hi i have an acer aspire E380 and it doesnt boot up when switched on,it doesnt even beep. noce rare occasions it with work fine but it may take many attempts. what could be the cause many thanks.


Your problem is either with your power supply or motherboard, but being as it boots somtimes and then dosent, and not even a beep, then the power supply would be the main cause, i sugest taking the power supply out of the computer and taking it to your local pc store, ask them if they could test it for you before you buy a new one. hope this helps.

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.


1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

Boot problem


You would need to note whether the 8 blinks are in a specific order; this is probably equivalent to beep codes and the spacing (grouping) of the beeps/blinks may tell you what problem you are having (other than having clumsy buddies).
Check to see if they are grouped in some recognizable manner such as 3-3-2 and then you would have to check with Acer to decode the sequence. Depending on whose BIOS is installed in your model, the 8 blinks equally spaced may be valid too and tell you the nature of the problem.. 
An example of the 'beep' codes can be seen here, midway down the page:
