Aspire wont load and beeps



the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery are securely seated


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Whenever I start my computer, it shows the Sony Vaio logo and right after that my computer starts beeping while staying at this logo. Sometimes it starts with windows restore and then it froze there and...


The beeps are a code to let you know what failed during the Power On Self Test (POST)

Count the beeps - and whether long or short. (Like 3 longs and 2 short, etc)

Go online to the Soony web site, or search for Sony POST codes. A list of codes will tell you what is failing - such as ram - or hard drive, etc. I suspect the latter.

My Compaq V2000 beeps twice & freezes


It sounds like the RAM is either not compatable or is bad. Put the old RAM back in and try again. Also the V2000 and HP DV2000 is in recall for mother board problems.

No display at all


hi,
from what you have mentioned it seems that, it can either be one of the following situation
1) you see the power light, hp/compaq logo and the windows startup logo but don't see any logon screen or desktop

2) you don't even see the hp/compaq logo at startup but only see the power light




1) this can mean your display dripers may be corrupt,
what you should do is restart the system and keep tapping F8 from the moment you see the compa/hp logo when you see a menu you will be given the option to start in safe mode select safe mode and press enter, see if you are able to see the desktop now if yes
just go to start menu >run> type in without quotes "devmgmt.msc" > ok > in here click on display adapters> right click on the entry below it select uninstall > after uninstall retsart the system , now when the system boots the system will detect your display adapter and try to load the drivers for it. now you have to follow through with the hard ware wizard and install the drivers.

2) in this case when the system is not even completing post that means there is some hard ware that is stopping it from post

take out the battery from the system and now try to start the system using AC adapter, if it doesn't work then take out all the external pheripherals attached to the system only if you are comfortable doing that
take out the Ram, hard disk, optical media drive and plugin cards that you have and then try to start the system on Ac adapter

if it does start, put one thing in at a time like

try starting it with RAM in,
then ram and hard drive in
then other things one at a time

and the time it stops posting agian it means the last thing that you have entered is faulty and was not allowing the system to post same goes for desktop

but you can check this only if you are comfortable doing it if you are not then you should check with compaq hp technical support also if you are under warranty don't do it on your own check with their technical support.

Can't boot up laptop


If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem. Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration' Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.
