Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
My acer aspire 5610z, purchased in 2007 from the middle east gives a continuous beeping sound on start up at the Acer Screen (POST??). On hitting the Esc key it goes away and windows vista loads but on placing the mouse pointer on the start menu ... the selection blinks and double tapping the mouse wont work. However on pressing Ctrl +Alt (no del) the mouse works fine. Im a bit confused by all this.. does the beep code mean anything? why does the touchpad behave that way. I tired cleaning the RAM but it still persists. HELP!!!!
I started having the smae problem yesterday with my Acer 1410 bought end of 2009. It started after I had stoped some suspicious process to work on start up (using msconfig). During the night I scanned the computer for virus but found nothing. Tonight I will enable those process to work on start up again and see what happens.
I will post the information tomorrow.

POST codes are a series of beeps which will indicate what hardware components are failing during boot up. They are generally unique to the types of BIOS chips you have. You need to know what bios chip you have and then you can search for them online. It sounds to me as if you are experiencing ONE long continuous beep which definitely points towards the possibility of a keyboard failure or stuck key during the boot up process, as mentioned in the previous posts. Good luck

Check the keyboard. Open and reconnect it. Works for my 5610... Download the the 'how to' here (http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/aspire%205610%20travelmate%204200.pdf).

Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.
