Have you tried "Last Know Good Configuration"? You will find this option along with Safemode. If LKGC able to boot the system properly then make a backup of your personal data. And open the System Configuration Utilities (Type MSCONFIG in Run Command) and disable all the Startup option. Reboot the Laptop and see if it works properly or not.
Try Flushing out the Power of the Laptop. Here is how to need to do.
First Disconnect the Battery from the Laptop and leave it for atleast 30 minutes. Then reconnect the Battery, make sure you don't connect any additional accessories like USB mouse, External hard drive, Power cable etc. And see if you are able to boot the system properly or not. If it doesn't work then you would need to reformat the hard drive.
I long + 3 short beeps or 3 short + 1 long beeps indicates memory problem.
The RAM module/s may need reseating to re-establish proper electrical contact.
If it still doesn't boot up then :-
Get the RAM module/s may be faulty, test the module/s in another laptop or get your friendly computer shop to test them.
yes boot from the original operating system disc may it be vista or xp, try formatting the hdd (inevitable fact is you might end up risking your data on you hard drive). then see if it works. i hope that helps. hit me back. thanks!
when you boot up next time tap the F8 key. This will bring you to a screen that gives you a bunch of boot up options. Choose the one that says use last known good configuration. this should solve your problem.
Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI
like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.
there was no need to update Bios now in case your laptop is turning on Please try to start in the Safe mode and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode. Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please try to reinstall the Windows Xp
and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of. do not try unless it is MOST required
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.
