Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook ?

I have a TravelMate 290. It has started beeping when I switch it on. Two short and one long beep. Won't stop until I hold the power button down to switch off and start again. Please help! What is it trying to tell me? Nicole


Answers :

Are you able to get into bios screen?When it starts up it performs POST(power on self test) and it does this beep when there is something wrong..It may be a faulty memory or even a low battery sometimes,unless it is on charge and battery is charging or has charged..Hope this gives you an idea...
This beep indicates that the ram is bad and it needs replacement
