Hello to whoever can help. This laptop started making a beep (6 times) when booting, and never boots. The fan is also doing a hell of a noise. Any idea? Thanks for your kindness. Frank

    Dear Master Tom :-))

    It is definitly 6 shorts beep, the last one might be a long one. If I could just bypass (no fault mode) the mormal booting I think I shoul be ok. This laptop goes to garbage anyway. If I could only retrieve the data of it. You are very kind to help a pure stranger (Montreal, Canada). Francois

Hi Saniple, more than likely those are beep codes and should give us an idea of what is going on. Typically there is a specific pattern of long and short beeps. If you can identify them for us we can start the troubleshooting process

Acer 5742g Beep at boot up

I have a problem that looks like this one.

At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

Any clue?

Motherboard issues

If you have an external monitor available, connect your laptop to it and start the machine. It would not start and shutoff if the motherboard was failing. It would not power at all or would turn on a display an error, with some beeps. By plugging into the ext monitor, you can amke sure this is not a video problem and watch it boot, until it gets to the error, which is probably a Windows Blue Screen.
