Computers follows a process which what we call P.O.S.T (Power On Self Test) to tests the computer to make sure it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST the computer will have a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice) as the computer starts and the computer will continue to start normally. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep at all or will generate a beep code, which tells the user the source of the problem.

It depends on how long or how short or how many beeps did you hear to determine which hardware component in your computer is failing.

Here is a helpful link that you can check and follow for you to determine which hardware is failing in your computer.

After determining which hardware it is, I would recommend that you consult a Local Technician near your area, although, if this Acer Aspire is still under warranty with Acer, it will be better to contact them so that they can have whichever hardware part replaced.


Hope this information is helpful!

Computer shut down and red light flashing five times then three second pause and repeats


According to the troubleshooting guide for this model, the red light flashing five times indicates a problem in the RAM (memory), before the video subsystem is ready. You may just need to open the case and make sure the memory sticks are fully locked in their slots. If you just added new memory, it might not match the required specs.

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)

Cause Pre-video memory error.

Solution
1.
Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.

2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.

3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.

Computer won't come on-it gives one short beep. it flashes some computer language - briefly - three different times and then screen goes black but does not shut off. how do I fix this?


One "beep" is good -- multiple beeps mean something is wrong.

Restart your computer, and be ready to press the PAUSE button on your keyboard, to "freeze" that text on the screen, so that you can read it.

No video output on Packard Bell 9750


If the computer is booting, you will hear a beep on startup. If it does not beep, then motherboard may be faulty.

Try first unplugging power cord for 20 minutes, tis can fix minor problems.

Try replacing RAM with old one , or removing modules one at the time.

If the computer does the startup beep, then the video adapter may be faulty. Test using an AGP or PCI video card. A basic one will start at about $20 (£15).

Monitor randomly shuts off and computer restarts


After you turned it on and the screen shut off, check the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If the computer shut down immediately after the monitor shut off, it might be because of fault operating system. Check with another monitor.
Thank you,
