Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook

1 Answer

Beeping I have an Acer TravelMate 290 PC Notebook with a serious problem. It beeps immediately you start it. I first thought it was the RAM, i replaced it with a new one. Nothing changed. I checked the fan, it is fine. The HDD is okay; what could be the problem?

If the system beeped and is a long one, but you did not get it to boot i would suspect that the processor has failed, but if its a short beep and you can get into the bios, check the date and time as if it is incorrect, if so, it may simply be that the cmos battery needs replacing on the motherboard. Beep codes can define allsorts of differnt things, so without knowing the motherboard make, it is hard to pin down to a specific fault so applogies if incorrect.

Acer Travelmate beeps 4 times & wont boot

Sounds like a RAM problem. Best bet is to purchase a stick of RAM from a store that will let you try it and return it if the problem is not solved. The beeping is a BIOS error code that signifies that something is wrong with your hardware.

If you have 2 sticks of RAM installed try removing one of them and then if the beep code happens again try to swap them out.

My Travelmate 290 series is not working...

Try taking the memory out and then put it back in making sure it seated correctly then start using AC power lead it's probably caused by letting the battery get too low before recharging.Use a start up disc to get it going if you have to. Good luck

Laptop beeping and not displaying

I think that the problem is related to RAM. Try to open the RAM from its slot, clean it and reinsert it. Then see if the problem goes. You will find the procedure to open the RAM from your manual. If you don't have it then let me know
