My Aspire is not powering up and is making a repeated beeping noise.

I have been advised this could be the power supply or motherboard.

My question is simple... Is the the power supply easy enough to replace. If this fails.

Is the motherboard easy enough to replace.

I am confident enough to open up my PC and I have a good idea what everything is in there. Just not a lot of experience in replacing anything in there but some RAM..

If you can let me know

Thanks

So yea 3 year old Dell desktop that does this: Computer Probelm on Startup - YouTube every time I start up today (it goes through the exact some process as shown in vid, sorry for messy study). The only thing that can stop the beep is holding down the power button until it powers off.

That computer his a Core 2 Quad, 6gb ram 500 gb hardrive and .... well I can't really think of anything else that would relate to the issue (runs on 32 bit Vista). Any advice?

Thanks loads

Hi, I bought a new Acer Aspire F5-571 already loaded with Windows 10 afew days ago. I notice that it beeps randomly. There is no pattern to the timing of the beeps nor is there a pattern to the number of beeps (e.g. could be a single beep, could be a couple of quick beeps). It sounds like it is coming from the machine itself as when I mute the sound you can still hear the beeps and it doesn't sound like a notification beep. Also I had the exact same problem with two HP laptops (both Windows 10) before this laptop. I thought they were faulty so I got them replaced both times and now I have the exact same problem with this laptop. Therefore I am wondering whether this is a Windows 10 issue. All three laptops seem to run fine and I even took the 2nd HP laptop to a computer shop and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Do I need to update a driver or something?Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

Have a new Acer Laptop Aspire ES1-511-C59V and the screen keeps dimming then brightening especially when on battery power. Newest thing is when plugged in it will beep and dim every few minutes, what the heck? I tried to adjust it doing this.... it did not help.

1) type Power Options and select it on the right.2) Then look over to the right on Power Options screen and you should have a power plan selected, probably "Balanced".
3) Select Change Plan settings.
4) Down at the bottom of "Edit Plan Settings" select Advanced Power Settings"
5) Scroll down until you find display and expand it
6) Find Enable adaptive brightness and expand.
7) I set mine selection to off for both On Battery and Plugged in.
8) Apply, Ok

thanks for any assistance, I am unfamiliar with Windows 8/8.1

I bought my acer aspire one back in March of 2009. A couple days ago, the adapter started to go out on me, and when i move the cord a certain way, it disconnects and goes to battery. If i move it again, it works again.

Considering that i unplug and replug in the laptop at least once every day, is this the average life of the cord or is there something wrong with the cord itself?

When I pressed the button to boot my pc nothing happened, I checked the power supply and all ok even tried an alternative power supply still no better.

However when you plug in the power supply one of the lan socket leds comes on, even though there is nothing connected to the pc apart from the power plug.

Is this a common fault with this pc, would it be some sort of short on the motherboard?

Hi,
I'm going to be very quick and blunt. Mainly because I'm annoyed.
There was a power outage last night.
My laptop had been plugged in, but plugged into a almost industrial surge protector.
A while later I remembered to check on my laptop.
It had frozen solid, and would not shut down, even by holding down the power button.
For some reason, the laptop did not go into autohibernation upon low battery.
Now, when I tried to turn the laptop on, the computer clicks in, as it usually does.
However, the screen appears to be off completely even after I power on the computer.

Can anyone help?

Hi, I've been trying to find the drivers for this machine for almost a week now. I actually finally went out and bought a PCI network adapter for it so I could get this computer on the internet so that maybe I could let the internet find the drivers for me, but so far no luck unless I want to pay money. I've already tried the official acer drivers site and when you finally go to use the program for it you need to pay money or it won't work. I also tried another one as well and it was the same thing, they don't warn you about that ahead of time though. I have been to the Acer site that would give me drivers for free but they don't support xp, only Vista and up, because the computer was made for Vista.
Does anyone know a safe virus free site where I could possibly find XP drivers for this computer.

Thanks in advance

My problem is that after turning on the power for the very first time, it will not recognize my keyboard. I have several different keyboards and I tried them all- including the Acer keyboard that came with the PC.

I think my mistake was that before turning on the power, I had plugged in both an HDMI connection to my TV as well as a DVI connection to an Acer 23" monitor. Then when I powered up the PC, it defaulted to the HDMI output but I didn't realize that and was expecting it to displa on the monitor.

It took me a while to figure out that it defaulted to the HDMI connection. I started out by looking at my monitor and couldn't figure out why there was no activity on the monitor. But once I switched the TV input to "HDMI 1", I saw the output was displayed on my TV.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to recognize any keyboard now although it does make a "clicking" sound when I press keys on the keyboard.

I tried to press WIN+P to change the HDMI output to show the same output on both the TV and the monitor but it seems to default to "side by side" and the only thing that I can think to do now is to pull out the power cord plug and try to re-boo... Read more

i recently bought an acer aspire m1640 off of someone. But when i turned it on it made a loud EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE noise. I narrowed down frow where the noise is coming fom and its coming from the lower right corner of the motherboard. Its not from the hard drive or any of the fans. it seems that its coming from a small cylinder with a hole on top of it and there is a small lithium ion battery next to it. Does anyone know whats wrong or how to fix it???
 

A:acer aspire wont boot noise EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

The EEEEEE noise you are referring to is coming from yur motherboard onboard speaker, and is a series of high pitched beeps. I;ve looked at the board maual and it does not refer to the different beep combinations it has.

Try powering up the Pc with the top off the case and check things such as the CPU fan is running, check all hardware is seated correctly as it more than likely will be some form of hardware failure. Also try replacing the CMOS battery (the small lithium ion battery you mentioned)

Hello -


Quote:




This laptop had a blue screen and very loud noise.




Sounds like a hardware issue.

I don't see any sign of infection in that log, which is what this section of the forum focuses on. That said...your version of HijackThis is outdated. Furthermore...

We no longer use HijackThis as our initial analysis tool, as it's not nearly as detailed as the tools we do use.

I don't believe this is a malware caused issue. Had you not posted a HijackThis log in your Windows XP topic, you might have received more detailed assistance there. You may want to repost in that topic, and ask someone to remove the HijackThis log, and pursue non-malware troubleshooting for you...or create a new topic in the Hardware section, with no HijackThis log. All such logs get referred here.

As far as the missing file in the O20 line, I'm not sure how that would affect your machine. I have that file in more than one location, system32, system32\dllcache and ServicePackFiles\I386....Windows File Protection should have replaced it.

You might do a search on your system to see if it's another location, and copy it to System32. Otherwise, you way wish to run the System File Checker

Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow and hit OK. Let it scan. If it finds any files missing/corrupted, it may ask for the Windows CD. Otherwise, it will auto-close after it's done.

Hi, I have a problem with my laptop. It was in service at the end of August with the cpu stuck at 0,8GHz problem. They fixed it with the replacement of the motherboard. This problem is fixed, but after the service a new problem came. My left speaker started making buzzing noise when I start playing games(CS:GO or GTA V tested on both). Feels like as my laptop getting hotter and hotter the noise gets louder and louder. If I close the game there is still buzzing noise, but as the laptop cools down it starts getting quieter until it stops doing it. I tried to uninstall and install the audio driver(latest from the acer website), disable or mute the speakers, but nothing help. I'm always using my laptop with headphones. Thanks for the advices in advance.

A:My acer aspire E1-510 will not power on

On Acer Aspire notebooks, blue light indication has different meanings depending on whether you are using your laptop on battery or by connecting it to a power adapter. To know more, the following link can be helpful:http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9674/~/how-does-the-battery-indicator-light-on-my-a... In your case, it is recommended to check if there is any issue with the battery. To do this, remove the battery from your laptop and connect the laptop directly to power adapter. If the laptop works fine now, there may be some issue with the battery. To confirm this, you can try using another battery (if possible) and see if that resolves the issue. Hope this will help you.

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I have an Acer Aspire One 725 it has a broken screen. I have a replacement screen and have checked that it is the correct one for this model. When I replaced the screen (I have done this with other laptops) the laptop would not power on - nothing happened, no power light, no HDD activity, no fan. The battery did not have much charge (if any) so was plugged into the mains. The battery charge light was not on either. I then replaced the old broken screen (but did not screw everything back into place) it started up with no problems. However once I switched off to fix the screws/facia etc I have the same issue no activity other than the first time the power switch light flickered a couple of times but no other activity.

The only difference I now have is that the battery charge light comes on but still no activity.

I do not think this is the 'black screen of death' as that seems to occur with the powerlight on but no other activity - I do not have a light on the power.

Any help gratefully received.

Is this an Acer problem, or is something configured wrong.

Sorry to hear your Aspire system is not powering on. You can try a power reset by pressing and holding the power button down for 10-12 seconds. It should come on at that point. If not, we would recommend repair. At that point please contact the Acer support number for your region/country from http://www.acer.com/worldwide/.

Gday Techspot community:

I have a Acer Aspire E650 MMX1 desktop computer that will not power up anymore.

By this i mean, i get no lights at all on the front of the computer or inside the tower when it's plugged in and when i try to push the power button i get the power pak fan and the cpu fan to spin a maximum of about 5 revolutions and then nothing. The only light i do see is on the back of the tower, which is the network connection port (green light) and this only happens initally when the power at the wall is turn on.

Things i have tried:

Checked power lead, checked power box fuse, checked power button, checked Ram, blew out all dust, unplugged everything and then plugged back in, and checked internal CMOS battery (with multi meter). All of these seemed to be working ok.

I know only a tiny bit about computers, so any help in this matter would be appreciated.

I am currently helping a friend with his lap top. The computer is An Acer Aspire 5315 series (Model ICL50). I believe I have narrowed the problem down to the power system. First of all, while the charger is connected, the charging indicator light does not come on. If I press the power button while it is attached to the charger, The screen will quickly flash the "Acer" logo, then shut off once more. The machine will not turn on at all without the battery attached.

What I want to know is if my suspicions are correct. I believe the problem is the charging port. Does anyone know if these particular computers are known to have this problem? Is their any definitive way to test this? I do not believe the problem to be the cord itself because the little green light is on, and does not appear to be damaged or stressed in any way. And the lap top did boot up once without a problem, but shortly after logging on, began to beep loudly (battery low warning?) before shutting off.

A:My Acer Aspire XC-703G does not power on.

I would test the power supply first. With it unplugged, remove the side panel, remove the large plug that comes from the power supply to the motherboard.Put a jumper from the green wire to the adjacent black wire.Plugit in to the wall.The power supply?s fan should start up. If it doesn?t then the power supply is dead.

After intalling win 10 my Acer Aspire S7-392 sometimes will not turn off. Especially if my Acer has been on for a while. Also when I close the desktop lid and later open the lid, the computer will not start (black screen). I have to manually turn off by pressing power. Have anyone the same issue on their Acer Aspire S7-392? Please respond if you have a solution...

I FINALLY found the solution for the power-off/sleep problem; Go to Control PanelClick on DevicesUnder System Devices  find .....Intel Management Engine Interfaceclick on it, then right click to find propertiesunder Driver it will tell you which version you have.Mine was ver. 11 --- which is the culprit.I choose to roll driver back to 9.5.xxOnce I did that roll back.....I no longer have the shut down issue.Hope that works for you.

Hello!I have a question regarding my problem with charging up my laptop.Well,when I upgraded to Windows 8.1,I didn't downloaded the newest BIOS version from the Acer site.I all the time had a problem on Windows 8.1,that my battery didn't charged up and when I un-plugged it from charger,it instantly turned off.I was thinking that my battery is dead ,but I was considering buying a new one a bit later.So,laptop offered me to download Windows 10(I didn't downloaded from some sites or something)-so I did.I am using Windows 10 for quite while and from boredom I wrote "profilecfg -energy",and it showed,that I have 20k/40k battery charge available.That was meaning,that battery is still alive,but something is not right,I looked online for this problem and I found out,that the newest bios update fixes this problem BUT ,the update is only available for Windows 8.1. Is there any possible for me to get the newest bios update for Windows 10?Thanks for paying attention to this post-Best regards

MyMy Z5761 will not boot up as described in my earlier post. I have told that there are two voltage levels. The lower one powers the lights, the bigher one powers the computer. Is this correct, and if so could the loss of the higher one be the reason why it is not booting up and what can be done to remedy the situation?

I bought this laptop in September 2007, then all of a sudden it started giving trouble to power up.

The battery and the charger work perfectly in another Aspire 5100.

I have to really fiddle around with the adapter for the laptop to get AC power, and it wouldn't start up unless the charger is plug in.

Once i get AC power i could power on he laptop fine, remove the adapter from the laptop and it will operate off battery power fine, but it would not start up on battery power, even if the battery is fully charged.

Any help will be appreciated.

thanks.

Actually sounds like the power On switch is faulty not the connection to the battery or power

After allways working perfect, my ACER Aspire 5683 WLMI suddenly does no longer start up. That is to say: the fan runs for a few seconds and than NOTHING. No beebs, no screen, no diskdrive testing, no nothing. Just dead. Apparently something still has invissibly started, because after some time the fan will incidently blow some warm air ....I have tried various remedies, such as:- leaving it without power, with the battery out, for some time- taking the memory out- swapping the memory boards and putting them back in, in various sequences- taking the HDD out- booting from CD (but the cd does not even spin)All with no luck. Can anybody help me, or is it just over and out?And if so, what could possibly be the cause, given that I have shut it down in good order and were faced with the above situation at the next start-up? btw:  i don't know if the location selection is correct. I cannot find much more else, other than is says Model BL50

Clearly something wrong with the battery on my Acer Aspire 7740 laptop. Preloaded with Windows 7, 64-bit o.s. [would love to get rid of that]. Battery, which is always fully powered, allows only 1 1/2 to 2 hrs use off power. Transformer is functioning, connection to laptop is good. I have a lousy battery, right? This product is under warranty, was purchased about 4 months ago.
Lots of problems. Have attempted to work with Acer support, but the communication is not only difficult, but virtually useless. Most of the time they can't understand the problem.
