Service guide states that it is searching for option ROMs, and that it is a checksum failure.

In order to understand what a checksum error is, it is important that you first learn what a checksum is. A checksum is a redundancy check during the startup process of a computer, which makes sure that a computer's data is intact. The data is scanned and tested for accuracy, either based on how well it relates to data elsewhere or based on previous data that was stored on the same computer. Essentially, all of the bits of data in a particular document or file are added up and a number or hash is created. This number or hash can then be compared to the number or hash generated from the same file on another person's computer or at a previous time on the same computer.

Although a checksum error can occur at any time while a computer is comparing data, it is most commonly present during a computer's startup procedure. During the startup processes of a computer, the BIOS settings, which are stored in a CMOS memory chip, are computed and then checked against the previous value. If the computed values do not match exactly, the computer warns the user with a checksum error message that the data may have been changed or corrupted between startup cycles. All BIOSes present a different error and therefore will either continue with booting or refuse to boot until the problem is corrected.
Depending on the type and the severity of the error generated, there may be one of a variety of ways to rectify the issue. The most common cause of a checksum error during the startup process is due to a faulty battery which is not providing sufficient power to the motherboard when the computer is off. However, motherboard malfunctions and viruses can also contribute to checksum errors.

This means that your graphics chip is pootched. Since the graphics card is usually fixed to the motherboard the only way to repair is to take it in for service. Since the service may be ½ the cost of a new laptop it may be best to just purchase a new one.

Why does my acer aspire z5761 keep freezing and has horizontal lines across screen and constant bleep?


You probably somehow killed the screen. Did you drop it or bang it into something? You can try downloading and replacing the drivers, but I doubt that will help. Lines on the screen are usually a physical problem, not software related.

You may try a Windows Restore if your machine has that ability. Some do, depending on who you bought it from. Again, doubful it will help, but worth a shot.

Need more information on the bleep. When does it bleep? Constantly? When you touch the screen? Or when you boot it up? What kind of bleeps? One? Several? Long? Short? Both? Repeating sequence?

My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

Trying to access the cd rom on a Acer Aspire 9300


When you go to safe mode, make sure that you go to "safe Mode with Networking", that way you can access the net. To make sure you have a good connection, get a long ethernat cable and connect it directly to the back of the router, in case the wireless driver fails. Get on the net forst, then try this site for your cd reading problem.....
