While not wanting to be a prophet of doom I do believe that you have killed your Motherboard.

Unless you get Ram which is a spot on match for the board one of the side effects can be a wipe out or corruption of the Bios.

The beeps error means the RAM is either incompatible or faulty.
If you use the same make but larger size memory module as the original RAM this should fix your problem.

Hi mine wont show screen at all! i reset ram no help. i turn it on no screen n after about 20 secs it has one long beep?? i cant tell if its loading or not!


the long beep indicates faulty ram oir graphics card, i would say ram, you also need to reset the bios, via the cmos jumper or battery, continuous long beep is a dram error, so the ram is faulty, get some new ram and make sure its specs match the computer

Pc boots but no display. tried a new video card, still wont work. ram or motherboard?


Hi.
To start the troubleshooting,
Do one thing.
Clear the cmos.
To clear the cmos, remove the battery and the cmos jumper. You will see JCC on the mb and it is attached to pin 1&2
You can Short it to pin 2&3 or remove it completely.
Don't forget to remove the power-cord from the power supply while clearing the cmos. together with the cmos bat & jumper.
After that try a different ram and a different vga card.
At times dust get accumulated in the slot that prevent firm contact with the vga slot or the memory bank.
Use a clean paint-brush and blow away the dust on the card, the mem and also the slot in the mb.
Fix it firmly.
try this
If you need further assitance revert back
Good luck

Can not reinstall os on mt acer 246lc it bleeps 4 times and swithes off


Without knowing what motherboard is in the unit - it will be difficult to determine what the 4 beeps means.

Generally, 4 beeps means issues with :

- memory
- video card
- keyboard
- motherboard failure

Things to try -

- make sure there is no keys stuck down
- remove the battery and AC adapter, remove and re-install the memory sticks (reseating the memory)

If this does not work, your problem may be more serious. Let us know the results of the above suggestions.
