Kind of a vague problem... Many times on BIOS startup you will get an internal beep, but should not affect your computer from booting normally. When you say it sometimes doesn't start normally, what do you mean by that?

MACHINE WILL NOT INITIALIZE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. JUST BEEPS


Make sure the switch is on REG mode. Make sure there are NO batteries in it. Turn power off at wall for a few minutes. Turn on and it should beep three times. Then put the batteries in. If it beeps more than three times, the printer is probably jammed or faulty. Make sure it can turn. Try taking the ink roller out as it sometimes gets sticky and jams the printer.

So my laptop froze yesterday and I turned it off to restart it. When I restarted it it everything was normal but after the starting windows goes away it usually goes to the login page well now all it does...


Try starting it in safe mode.
When the computer is starting just after the beep or when the bios info goes away press f8 repeatedly and you will get an option to open in regular or safe mode.
Alternativly you can also hold down teh ctrl key and it should do the same.
Did you install or update and drivers recently?

Hello!I would be very gratefull if you help me with the startup problem of my Acer Extensa 5630!Sometimes(recently very often)it just won't turn on.I red some complaints of other owners of the same...


Not at all, If your computer was closed normally, it will start normally.But if you closed it from the button without shutting down from the windows, it will not start normally the second time.

so, when you face such a problem, just remove the battery for 12 min. then start up using power cable, hold ESC for 10 sec (when you hear a beep) stop and close from the button then power up using your battery, it will start correctly.

Problem booting


Hi,

Any beep code from pheonix starting with two beeps relates to ram issues. If you have treid swapping the ram and it only gives the first 2 beeps then most likely the RAM controller on the north bridge or the data channels themselves are damaged on the motherboard.

You can try running a single chip of ram in each slot at seperate attempts. If it is a data channel damaged this will bypass the problem although it will cripple the laptops performance. Either way, the only permanent and proper fix would be to replace the oBo which I doubt would be cost effective on this unit.

My PC auto matically restart when turning it on


The beep you hear is your BIOS trying to alert you to an error in the POST (power on self test) routine. Without knowing the manufacturer of your motherboard one can't be certain what the beeps indicate...see this link for more info: http://www.5starsupport.com/info/beep_codes.htm
It's possible you have some kind of infestation, and it's possible there's something more systemic, but without knowing the make and model of your system I couldn't say.
Sometimes three beeps indicates a keyboard error...you could try another keyboard or unplug yours and see if it will boot up "normally" without it.
Otherwise, report back with some more info and we'll take it from there.
