Hi, well firstly let me tell you that these "beeps" which you hear is in fact "codes" that tells us about the status of the PC. There are different types of beeps depending o the BIOS manufacturer such as Phoenix,Award etc

In your case the two beeps is related to RAM memory error. The computer is waiting for user input. Probably you upgraded your RAM recently & the PC is waiting for your input in BIOS & is shutting down automatically. Power on your computer, hold "F2" key to enter BIOS & "Exit saving changes".
Well, dear your problem will surely be solved! Cheer up....
Please send us your valuable feedback & vote so that we know our strength or weaknesses.

Computer beeps, minor flash on the screen, then shuts off


Computers follows a process which what we call P.O.S.T (Power On Self Test) to tests the computer to make sure it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST the computer will have a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice) as the computer starts and the computer will continue to start normally. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep at all or will generate a beep code, which tells the user the source of the problem.

It depends on how long or how short or how many beeps did you hear to determine which hardware component in your computer is failing.

Here is a helpful link that you can check and follow for you to determine which hardware is failing in your computer.

After determining which hardware it is, I would recommend that you consult a Local Technician near your area, although, if this Acer Aspire is still under warranty with Acer, it will be better to contact them so that they can have whichever hardware part replaced.


Hope this information is helpful!

Hi, I suspect that it may be the driver, however, I'm not sure. It started three days ago, the monitor turned blue and froze. I shut it down....since then when I try to turn it on it makes long beeping...


eather the RAM has gone bad or its a hardware arugment so first remove the last thing you installed on it if this does not work try removing one RAM at a time. P.S. please report back so i can help you get done with this.
