One short beep can be DRAM refresh failure.

  1. Remove RAM memory, Graphics card, other Plug-in cards, and Drive cables from your mainboard.
    Only CPU + Fan + Power cable are installed on the mainboard.
  2. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => Power supply, CPU, mainboard or BIOS is most likely defective.
    • some beeps => remember the beeps and next step.

  4. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:

SOURCE: Notebook will not boot

If I understand what your problem is...
I had the same problem, it was a caused by bad Windows XP install CD.
Call Gateway and explain the situation, you may need to have a magnifying glass handy to read the tiny engraved lettering in the center of the CD disk.
Have your 'Product Key' available.
If you have some kind of sales receipt, or other "Proof of Purchase" have it handy too.
You will need to tell them, you do not have the program installed on other computers.
They can send you another disk.
This method will only work if you have a legal copy of the program.

SOURCE: Bootup problem

Your CPU is overheating.

Try and get into the BIOS and increase the fan speed & any aother fan on the system. Don't increase the temperature range, as this will damage the system.

You won't be able to sort out the software problem until the system is running within the hardware limits.

You can also run a office fan to help get the system to cool while making the changes in the BIOS.

SOURCE: On switching on acer aspire

Pressing F2 on startup enters the Setup Utility and a password to that has been set up on your netbook. In any case, you can try pressing Alt and F10 at startup to get into Acer eRecovery Management which can then restore the operating system to its original factory condition. Be aware that doing the restore clears the hard disk partition containing the operating system and all user data will be erased.

My 531S hangs at the dell splash screen with one short beep before loading windows vista


I would start the computer in safe mode. To do this, keep tapping on the F8 key as you start the computer. Do this as soon as you see anything on the screen. If you get the windows splash screen, you've waited too long. Once you get the white menu on a black screen, choose safe mode and let it start. The next time you do a restart, it should work. If it doesn't, then in safe mode do a system restore back to the time it worked.

Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.

Beep code


The sequence of one long beep and two short beep when starting computer usually means problem in your display adapter. Make sure your VGA connector is connected properly to VGA out port.
If you are using VGA card (non on-board), you might want to make sure that the card is inserted properly to motherboard.
The beep indicates that system can not initialize display.

Check your RAM or Video Graphic Adapter..

1 long, 2 short - Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

Any other beep(s) - RAM problem.
