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

I checked the Acer website for beep codes (link) and it is telling me that the BIOS is defective. If your laptop is under warranty I would recommend you call Acer, if not then you will need to find a way to "flash" the BIOS and hope that it resovles the issue. You should be able to

Sorry I couldn't be more help. If I read the beep code wrong then you can try plugging in a external monitor to your laptop and see if it boots up that way.

My acer aspire 9300 have beep code: 1 long and 2 short in start up..


This beep code is -

one long, two short beeps
  • System board failure
  • Video adapter problem
  • LCD assembly failure

This is most likely a video problem.
Try re-seating the RAM, the video RAM is shared, uses part of the main RAM.
Also try restoring the BIOS setting back to the default settings.

Acer aspire 9300 black screen (display adapter)


I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

BLANK SCREEN-ACER ASPIRE 3661


You can check the little indicator light on the notebook.

If the hard drive was dead, that wouldn't cause the display to go blank.
If your problem was with your hard drive, you would still get the BIOS screen and then a message about being unable to load an operating system. So, I doubt if that is the problem.

My guess is that you have a relatively serious motherboard, video card, memory, or CPU problem.

When you turn it on, does it beep ? If so, how many times ? You can translate these beep codes at: http://networking.ringofsaturn.com/PC/beep.php __________________

Right click anywhere on the desktop, open the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom. You'll see a box that reads monitor, set this to never. That should take care of the screen shutting down. As far as the orange light, I'm guessing that's the battery light, and it's time for a new battery.(It should be green and flashes orange when the battery no longer works properly)
