Hello,

The reason you are getting the beeps is simply because there are some connections that have not been made in the system so when it is powering up it will not be able to come on fully.

Try to open it up and rerun all the connections that you can see. Turn it on first to see how it is faring inside. Then you turn it off and couple it back together.

Then you check the cable that connects the monitor to the System to see if there is any wrong connections made.

After running this check, your system will boot properly without any sound and it will bring up some information to the monitor.

Take care

Hello,
First off, we'll need to reseat most of the parts connected to the motherboard. That includes memory, video card, audio card and the others. What you need to do is to remove everything from the motherboard, connect them one by one. Once you have connected a part/device, try to boot it up. Do this until you have isolated the problem.
The hardware that is common to this issue that you're having is the memory stick. But, we really need to isolate the cause of the problem.
Regards..

"my computer will only beep no screen,it beeps


Hi

You likely have a bad memory module. First, try removing all the memory and putting it back in again. This is called reseating. If you still get the errors, then try removing one stick at a time and testing it with each stick (provided, of course, you have more than one stick installed). If you only have one stick installed, remove it and turn on the computer and it should beep at you as well. That memory stick will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thank you.

Often simply disconnecting the power cable, holding power button for 15 seconds, release power button, plug back in will work

Acer Aspire 5315 won't boot, black screen


I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see http://www.insidemylaptop.com/ for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.

DAMN I'M GOOD!

Try removing your RAM handling by the edges, clean the terminals with an eraser and reinsert firmly. Reboot your computer. Make sure you remove static charges from your body by placing your hands on a grounded object.
