Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
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.
