Question about Acer Aspire m5640 PC Desktop
I'm having an aspire m5640. it does not boot properly, so that the monitor is going to sleep because of no signal. BAAAD. question: does anybody know if there is usually a 'boot beep' signal. this should give usually a hint whats wrong. on the aspire i can hear nothing ... (fan yes, some clicks, but no beep ...) anyway: thanx already now for any hint-help. greetings from switerland, zurich, r.s.
Yes if there are error on the system you should most likely hear a beep most of the time when there is no beep it is due to bad ram. Some times beep codes can't detect bad ram and your computer will not boot.
Open the computer up and see how many ram chips you have if you have more than one take the one in dimm slot 2 out. There should be small writing next to the slots 1,2,3,4 or Dim 1 dim 2 ect ect. you always want to keep slot 1 with ram so start by pulling out the ram out of slot 2 and turn your computer on. If your computer still dosn't post pull the ram out of slot 1 out and insert the ram that was in slot 2 into slot 1 if still no luck it's most likely your board but the best way to test this is to know that you have a good working stick of ram you could purchase one and if it dosnt work bring it back ... theres also the chance of your video card being bad but there is usualy a post code for it (beep code)
if you have no clue on what ram looks or how to open your computer just google for installing ram on a computer and you should find step by step guides
