Question about Acer Aspire E360 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Acer E360 doesn't turn on, only a long beep, nothing on screen.

I have an Acer E360 with AMD Athlob XP 3500+ (factory default parts) it didn't sometimes start, it froze often, and it even turned off without warning. I decided to vacuum clean the computer inside, it was very dusty. i took off the RAM, and vacuum cleaned the RAM ports, i put the RAM back, and try to boot. It starts normally for about few secs, and starts an endless beep. Nothing appears on the screen. What should I do?

Hi vilu_repo! There are a couple of things that could be wrong with the memory. First thing to remember is that anytime you touch anything inside your computer, you must be touching the metal chassis at all times to prevent static from zapping the electronics. Make sure the memory is completely pushed down and locked in place. The lock tabs at the end will move up when you do. Your computer should have 2 banks with 2 slots to each bank. The first two slots is one bank, the last two are the other bank. Your memory has to be installed in matched pairs in each bank (same speed and size). If all four slots are filled, make sure the memory is matched in each bank. And if all four slots are filled, and your computer still won't boot, you can try removing one bank of memory at a time. If that works, then you need to replace the bad memory. If this helps you, then please rate this answer. Thanks! Hal

Acer 5742g Beep at boot up


I have a problem that looks like this one.

At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

Any clue?

I caNT RESET MY FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS FOR MY ACER ASPIRE 3680 COMPUTER


How to restore your computer to factorysettings without a disk?
If original andfairly new: While Booting Up.

Dell XP = Ctrl+F11
Dell Vista = F8
EEEPC = Esc
Compaq = F11
HP Desktop Vista = F11
Emachine = F10
Acer = Alt+F10

Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come withdisks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever putanything on the recovery partition d:, if you used d: for anything you need toremove what you put there or the recovery will not function.(As soon as yourcomputer is turning on press the F10 key and it will take you to the systemrecovery screen, click on the advanced option and click Destructive recoveryand click next. WARNING: before doing this backup anything on your computer youwant to keep pictures, videos, music etc. This will delete everything that didnot come pre-loaded from the factory, so if you have pictures of Aunt Fae'sClass reunion you should probably back those up if you want to keep them.)

If you have more that one connection for the monitor try one of the others.

This happens frequently when people add video cards and forget to disdable the onboard one or maybe swap to the onbaord one and forget to turn off the extra card.

Acer aspire blue screen appeared went off now laptop starts up for few seconds then turns off again, but always a black screen hear the fan a few seconds but nothing


Try this:
  • check to make sure the fan is actually spinning and that there is no debri (dust bunnies) causing it to overheat.
  • Make sure there is nothing preventing airflow, you may need to tilt the back up to allow more airflow
Is there any display at all? Do you see a BIOS splash screen? Do you hear a beep shortly after powering on?

--if you have a splash screen, go into BIOS setup by pressing a button (del,F1,F10...whatever) then set it factory defaults and save changes

--also try removing anything that's detachable (USB, cards, dvd-rom, RAM, Battery...) Hold down the power button for 20 secs then plug in only the A/C and see if you get a bios screen

Hope this helps

Need the driver for the 9 in 1 card reader


You can go here:

But supposed to be, your 9 in 1 card is a plug and play (if you're using XP) but still try checking if you installed your other drivers (e.g chipsets) this may be your problem
