    More info needed: How many beeps? count them. Most likely, the memory chip came loose. Re-seat the memory.. report back with a comment.

Your computer seems to have the prob of RAM. As per the phrases you used to define your problem I'd suggest kindly take it to a shop for repair. They won't charge more and it will easilly be fixed. Just tell them It's having RAM Err.

Laptop wont start.


Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

Fan just work for seconds


Replace the fan or your computer will run hot and keep turning off.

Or are you saying this is what happens when you power on the computer? if so: When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Do not fear because all may not be lost! Follow these steps to determine why your computer won't turn on.
Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours or more depending on why the computer won't turn on Here's How:
  1. Try to relax! There's a good chance you can figure out exactly why your computer won't start and then get it back up and running.
    I don't usually start a troubleshooting guide with the same advice a therapist might give her client, but when faced with a computer that won't start most people tend to panic, worried that all the data on their PC is gone forever.
    It's true that the most common reason a computer won't start is because a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive. Your data is probably safe - just not accessible.
  2. . Try these steps if your computer will not turn on and is showing no sign at all of receiving power - no fans running and no lights on the computer case.
    Important: You may or may not see a light on the back of your PC depending on the kind of power supply you have and the exact cause of the problem.
    Note: Don't worry about the monitor yet. If the computer is not turning on because of a power issue then the monitor certainly can't display anything from the computer. Your monitor light will likely be amber/yellow if your computer has stopped sending information to it.
  3. Follow these steps if, when you turn your computer on, it promptly powers back off.
    You'll probably hear the fans inside your computer turn on, see the lights on the front of your computer turn on or flash, and then it will all stop - always before the boot process is complete. You may or may not also hear beeping coming from inside your PC
  • If your desktop computer does nothing at all when you try to start it, first check that the power cable is securely plugged in at the back of the computer as well as into a working power outlet. It's amazing how often this is the case.
  • If you're starting from a button on the keyboard, make sure the keyboard is connected to the computer.
  • If the computer is plugged into a surge protector, see if the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. (If it doesn't have a reset switch and the problem is with the surge protector, it will need to be replaced.) Try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.
  • If you can hear the computer's fan or hard-disk drive, or if you can see indicator lights on the main unit but the monitor stays dark, make sure that the monitor is connected to a working power source, that it's turned on and that it's securely connected to the computer via the video cable.
  • If the monitor and computer have power but the computer displays a "Non-system disk or disk error" message, check to make sure you didn't leave a disk in the A: drive. If you did, eject it and restart the computer.
  • If the operating system still won't start even though the computer and monitor have power, try restarting with a Windows CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive or, if you've got a Macintosh, with a Mac OS disc in the CD-ROM drive. (You can start a Mac from the CDROM drive by holding down the C key while starting up.)
  • If the operating system then starts, your problem is probably with the startup hard drive or with the operating system installed on it. If you can't fix the drive, you'll have to replace it
  • please tell how these work by staying how help

    Dell Optiplex GX280 - On power ON , no Fan movement no display


    Confirm no leaking or bulging capacitors on your mothboard.
    refer to here
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

    As this was a common problem with the GX280.
    If found, you will need to replace the capacitors.

    The other check is to make sure the heatsink is fitted correctly, perhaps reaply the thermal paste if you have any. I know that high temps would switch the GX280 off.

    Yellow power light on HP SR1420NX


    For reasons yet to be determined, your computer is not talking to your monitor.

    This could be the monitor cable came loose from the tower (this is our favorite, because it is such an easy repair), or something on the motherboard (that is, anything) that is not functioning and preventing your computer from starting.

    Unplug the connecting cable, and plug it back in again, making sure that it is seated properly.

    Do you hear any sounds besides the fans? You should be able to hear the faint clicking of a hard drive starting up also. If you hear this, the problem is not in the computer, but in the communication to the monitor.

    Good luck

    Make sure the cpu is seated properly. It should only go in one way. Also make sure you have applied a good thermal paste between the cpu & heatsink. Check and reseat RAM. Then try rebooting. Hope this helps.

    Fan problems


    There will be a port on the side or bottom of the machine for air to get to the fan. You will be able to see or hear the fan run thorough this port. Start the machine and listen for the fan, you should be able to hear the fan clearly, when running. If the fan is working properly it will turn on and off in regular intervals to cool the machine.

    It doesn't turn on!


    If your Macintosh computer won't turn on, here's how to troubleshoot it. Please keep in mind that although your computer may display similar symptoms that prevent it from showing video, this article discusses what to do if the computer won't turn on, meaning that when you press the power button:
    • You don't hear a startup chime
    • You don't hear any fan or drive noise
    • The power button or power indicator doesn't light up at all
    If your computer doesn't display any video, it may display one or more of these similar symptoms when you press the power button:
    • You may hear a startup chime
    • You may hear fan or drive noise
    • You may see the power button or power indicator light up
    If any of these conditions occurs, see the Troubleshooting: My computer has no video article instead. If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
    1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
    2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
    3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
    4. Reset the computer's PMU or PRAM.
      • For a portable (iBook or PowerBook), click here for instructions.
      • For a Mac mini, click here.
      • For an iMac, click here.
      • For a Power Mac, click here.
      • For a Mac Pro click here.
      • For a MacBook or MacBook Pro, click here.
      • For any other computer, click here for instructions on resetting the PRAM.
    5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord. You can get a replacement cord for some models here.
    6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
    7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to your local Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis.

    Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


    There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up? Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board. Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
