Hey there Tom! Sorry for the slow response, but have had too many irons in the fire at the same time, as of late.
Sounds like you may have a case of , what I call "RIC" (Repair Induced Confusion).
Nothing to be ashamed of. We all experience it from time to time, whether novice or professional. I don't know if it is a fungus or bacteria, but I think that the manufactures' pour a little of it in many electronic devices. As soon as you open the cover to attempt a simple repair, you get the disease. Once you contract the disease, anything and everything you touch seems to turn to ****. From personal experience, I can say that it is reoccurring and once you get it, it will usually last the rest of the day, or until you get that item finally repaired ; which ever is longer.
It causes a person to not get things reseated correctly; or to plug things into the wrong place; or to unintentionally loosen a different connector; or to do things that make perfect sense at the time (but someone else would look at it and say "Boy,was that a dumb thing to do!")
Usually, the fix for this is to very slowly, methodically and carefully go through the entire device and reseat anything that is reseatable. Cables, connectors, hard drives, CD drives, memory, modules, batteries (excepting maybe, the CMOS battery) and so forth. While doing this, keep your eyes open and check for anything that shouldn't be there. I have had small pieces of wire, solder balls, used staples, extra screws and such creep from my work area into whatever I have been working on.
If this doesn't work the first time, take a break and try it again. Go get a cup of coffee, take a walk around the block, go out and mow the lawn. Then set down and try it again.
Hope this helps and best of luck!
Ron

Power Light Flashes 5 Times Won't Boot Up


If it uses AMI bios then 5 short beeps means motherboard failure.
  1. Remove RAM memory, Graphics card, other Plug-in cards, and Drive cables from your mainboard.
    Only CPU + Fan + Power cable are installed on the mainboard.
  2. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => Power supply, CPU, mainboard or BIOS is most likely defective.
    • some beeps => remember the beeps and next step.
  3. Power off the PC, and insert the RAM memory.
  4. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => RAM incorrectly installed.
    • same beeps as before => RAM is most likely defective.
    • beeps have changed => next step.
  5. Power off the PC, and insert the Graphics card.
  6. Power on the PC:
    • some beeps => Graphics card is most likely defective.
    • blank screen =>Graphics card is most likely defective.

System Beep Code Error


Beep Code Manual, Better Than Gold Techies, American Megatrends Int. & Phoenix


BIOS Beep Codes

When a computer is first turned on, or rebooted, its BIOS performs a power-on self test (POST) to test the system's hardware, checking to make sure that all of the system's hardware components are working properly. Under normal circumstances, the POST will display an error message; however, if the BIOS detects an error before it can access the video card, or if there is a problem with the video card, it will produce a series of beeps, and the pattern of the beeps indicates what kind of problem the BIOS has detected.
Because there are many brands of BIOS, there are no standard beep codes for every BIOS.

The two most-used brands are AMI (American Megatrends International) and Phoenix.

Below are listed the beep codes for AMI systems, and here are the beep codes for Phoenix systems.


AMI Beep Codes

Beep Code Meaning
1 beep DRAM refresh failure. There is a problem in the system memory or the motherboard.
2 beeps Memory parity error. The parity circuit is not working properly.
3 beeps Base 64K RAM failure. There is a problem with the first 64K of system memory.
4 beeps System timer not operational. There is problem with the timer(s) that control functions on the motherboard.
5 beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed.
6 beeps Gate A20/keyboard controller failure. The keyboard IC controller has failed, preventing gate A20 from switching the processor to protect mode.
7 beeps Virtual mode exception error.
8 beeps Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card.
9 beeps ROM checksum error. The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is likely faulty.
10 beeps CMOS checksum error. Something on the motherboard is causing an error when trying to interact with the CMOS.
11 beeps Bad cache memory. An error in the level 2 cache memory.
1 long beep, 2 short Failure in the video system.
1 long beep, 3 short A failure has been detected in memory above 64K.
1 long beep, 8 short Display test failure.
Continuous beeping A problem with the memory or video.
BIOS Beep Codes


Phoenix Beep Codes

Phoenix uses sequences of beeps to indicate problems. The "-" between each number below indicates a pause between each beep sequence. For example, 1-2-3 indicates one beep, followed by a pause and two beeps, followed by a pause and three beeps. Phoenix version before 4.x use 3-beep codes, while Phoenix versions starting with 4.x use 4-beep codes. Click here for AMI BIOS beep codes.

I have no screen on my acer aspire 9300 it powers up and then I get three beeps the first longer than the second two and then just a blank screen?? Please help


Hello,
When you hear some beeps before a computer boot it means that it didn't pass the POST (Power On Self Test) phase. Taking note of the sequence of the beeps and checking the manual should tell you the reason, for example bad memory, no HD found, bad processor, etc....

Looking at your model manual here below the codes are not indicated but Acer ask to call their tech support (see page 43)

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS%209300_7000%20User%20Manual.pdf

Anyway the 1 beep long and 2 short means 1 long, 2 indicate a video error and the Bios cannot initialize the video screen to display additional information.

You may have to replace the video card.

regards

When i turn on my laptop lights come on then it beeps twice tries to boot up beeps twice again then shuts off


Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date.


To access System Restore in Windows 7: Open the Start Menu. Click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore

Hope this helps.

My computer beeps continuously every time i have it plugged in


Try this suggestion. Turn off your laptop, remove the cables and battery on the pc. Press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the pc. If it still continues to beep with no interruption, it is a problem on the motherboard. I suggest to call Acer and have your computer repaired immediately unless if you know how to reseat the motherboard by tearing down the laptop..

No post no video Beeps once every sec. The first few times it boot I had video. Then lost video now I have it back. it will run all day when in the bios. But outside the bios trying to load Windows XP home...


Hi...

Actually the problem is the memory witch is beeping every seconds during turning the laptop on. Check your memory stick, remove the memory stick, clean from dust. Reinsert it try to use the other memory slot. If the problem is still occurs the memory stick is bad or faulty already. You need to replace the memory stick.

Good luck!
