Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

Annoying beep When my laptop is plugged in to the power cord, it beeps often, sometimes up to 40 beeps per minutes. It is not the battery, as when I remove the battery, the beeping persists. I hear no beeping when I use the machine on battery only, but the battery does not seem to be holding a charge, so I think it must not be being fully charged. Is this a common problem? Can you help me troubleshoot it? Many thanks. Blue skies, Lark

Hi
I think you problem is from the power adapter. It's not working properly.Sometime you have the electricity sometime not.So you laptop switch between AC or DC(battery),that's why you laptop beep.The problem can also be from the power connecter on your laptop.Best is to try to change the adapter and see the result first.
goodbye,takecare

Beep beep noise


Beep Beep noise when? Your memory is probably bad or the video card is bad.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Power light comes on but nothing happens


What type of laptop? What operating system?

Laptops don't boot for the following reasons: 1) Bad Power Cord. 2) Bad DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. 3) Static Charge Buildup. 4) Bad Motherboard.

The above 4 reasons are when you press the power button and absolutely nothing happens. You hear no fans running, no disk drive running, no one time clicking sound on the CD Drive and No light for a second or two when the CD drives click. In the case of a motherboard issue sometimes you will hear beep sounds or see blinking lights. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with your motherboard and why it will not boot. If you see the blinking lights or hear beeps count them.

So you have a power light which means your power cord and dc power jack is good. So lets see if you have a static charge buildup.

Remove the Power Cord and the Battery from the laptop, then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back into the laptop, but leave the battery out. Press the power button to see if it boots. If it does you had a Static Charge Buildup and it's ok to put your battery back in. If it does not you more than likely have an issue with your motherboard.

Hi my laptop developed a strange problem. I formatted the system drive and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 ultimate sp1. now at the boot up the laptop makes loud annoying ringing bell sound for a few...


Is the "ringing bell" sound a series of beeps? A computer will have beep codes at start up for the user to identify system errors. Count the beeps, one long and 2 short or 3 short beeps or one continuous beep, etc. Then you can search to find what that specific beep code stands for. As for the the touchpad you may need to go into the system properties, right click on my computer, click properties and then click device manager on right. Click the "+" next to mice and other pointing devices. Double click on the touchpad device and then the driver tab. Click update driver and see if it finds a better driver. Or do a windows update. Sometimes the problem can be fixed there. Lastly, and oddly enough, try to take out your battery when the power cord is plugged in. I have seen cases where a bad battery can cause problems with the touchpad and keyboard. I hope one of these helps!

We had a power outage for about 45 minutes a few days ago. Ever since then the Powerware 3110 has been beeping. I turned it off and left it plugged in overnight and when I turned it back on the beeping...


This could be several things, fortunately the device should actually be helping you to diagnose the issue. There are different beeps for different issues. They are as follows:

1 Beep Every 5 Seconds = Power Outage\Loose Plug Connection\Tripped Circuit Breaker\Power Cord Damage or Failure

2 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Low Battery Alarm

3 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Battery Needs Charging\Service\Replacement

3 Beeps Every 5 Minutes = The Battery is discharged and battery power is unavailable (If this continues battery replacement may be necessary)

1 Beep Ever 1/2 Second = Power Requirements exceed the UPS Capacity (remove some equipment to lighten the load on the unit)

Continuous Beep = Short Circuit / Input Voltage out of Range / UPS Fault (Likely replacement of entire unit)

That should help diagnose the actual issue. If it turns out the battery needs to be replaced they can be found online for around $20. A simple google search for Powerware 3110 Battery should return what you're after. Good luck!

How do I keep my Gateway NV5214u from beeping when the power cord is disconnected


Your computer beeps when it is running on a low battery. (So, when the power cord is plugged in, it doesn't beep). It is possible that your battery no longer can hold a charge and you need to buy a new one, if you can find one.

GE xl 1800 beep


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
