Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

Hearing continuous beep sound at startup that disappears on Esc

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.

    I found out what was the problem. The keyboard.
    Yesterday night during the boot when Windows 7 was starting the Acer froze and the beeps started. I checked if ther was any key in the keyboard stuck. I inserted a screwdriver under each key and forced then up (gently). When I reached and did it to the Pg Down key the beeps stopped and the computer kept loading the OS. Usually when the OS finished loading I couldn't use the touchpad too. So again I tried lifting up the Pg Down key and "voile", the touchpad worked. If I took out the screwdriver the touchpad stopped working again.
    Conclusion: Since I have read some complaints about Acer computers with same problems I suspect they are producing/using lower quality keyboards.
    Suggestion: Try lifting each and every key of the computer up when the continuous beeping comes to check if it is the same root cause.

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

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.

Acer Aspire M1201: We need to find out what 2 short quick beeps signify. The unit will turn on but no video. We have already tried replacing the video card and ram and still same issue. Please help.


Have you tried connecting an external monitor and see if that one would work? Also, are you hearing any startup sound when you turn on the computer? If there is, and there is a good display on an external monitor, then it is the LCD that is causing the problem.
