Sounds like you laptop overheated at one point as common 5 beeps are CPU/GPU things to check:

1. clean out your vents
2. The laptop may need to be evaluated by a local tech to see witch unit failed cpu/gpu.

We are here in chat 24/7 and can help you alot better then over email but if you prefer the free option then qaulity does suffer as we do not have a two way communication to find out what caused this. You might just want to pay the pipper @ bestbuy and get it fixed. or start a paid chat with us :) ether way here you going to need the part to fix this so you decide.

TURNS ON AND GET A BEEPING NOISE THEN TURNS ITS SELF OFF AFTER A FEW SECONDS


Hi,

Remove your memory stick and clean it with some alcohol or use a rubber eraser to clean it, then fit in slot. This may help to work the PC.


If NO...

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.


  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    My acer travelmate 250 wont start up whaen i switch it on its just a black screen and it bleeps 3 times then just knocks off


    If you are getting beeps on startup and nothing shows on screen possibly the RAM of your system is gone bad.

    You might try reseating the RAM to get this issue fixed, If you have more than 1 memory stick try loading one stick at a time to understand which of the RAM is gone bad.

    Acer Travelmate beeps 4 times & wont boot


    Sounds like a RAM problem. Best bet is to purchase a stick of RAM from a store that will let you try it and return it if the problem is not solved. The beeping is a BIOS error code that signifies that something is wrong with your hardware.

    If you have 2 sticks of RAM installed try removing one of them and then if the beep code happens again try to swap them out.

    Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem


    I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
