Re: Acer Veriton 6800 PC Desktop will only beep will not...
Reseat ram for a fast beeping and disconnect the power supply both the big and 4 pin connectors for 2-5 min plug in and boot. Plus you do not have to have pairs of mem only if you wand double data rate

Either the power supply has failed, or the motherboard. Or possibly the CPU was overheated and burned itself out from cooling fan failure. Smaller possiblity is memory went bad. You should first check the memory, by removing it, blow out the sockets with can of air, then replace one at a time. Try to start PC after 1st one. then remove it and try the other one. Any change evident?
Look at the capacitors and other components on the MB , any sign of swelling, bursting or burning?A new MB will run about $100.
With out being there, it's hard to tell what is wrong.
It is not unusal for capacitor/s to blow their tops and could emit flames and smoke as the power supply ages. When they blow they could damage other components. Don't bother trying to replace them, get a new power supply.
Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.
hope this helps
