Hi often its a mainboard issue, what you can attempt is reinserting the memory modules on the laptop. first are you in or out of warranty? if you are outside of warranty then go ahead and follow the instructions below, if you are in warranty contact your dealer or acer for warranty service. first disconnect the battery and ac power. Turn the laptop around, on the bottom, there is a cover for the memory modules, or then there might be one big cover. unscrew the screws from the memory cover or from the cover. the memory cover is the one with a picture of a chip or more like a logo/icon of a chip. Inside you will find 1-2 memory modules take them both out of the unit so that there is no memory inside. turn\015\012the laptop over and plug it in to the power, turn it on, it will beep\015\012or it will just be blank, let it be blank for a moment and then unplug,\015\012 now plug in the other memory module into the other slot, then\015\012turn it over again and plug it in, turn it on, if the laptop works now,\015\012then the problem is solved if it is not, then unplug, turn it over,\015\012remove the memory and place it on the other slot. then turn over and\015\012turn on / plug in. if the laptop is still not working then take\015\012out the current memory module and test it with the other one if you had\015\012two.(repeat the same process you did with the first one) if the\015\012machine is still dead, it is very likely a hardware failure, possibly\015\012the video adapter or the main board has failed. (video adapter is build\015\012into the mainboard in most of these models) if you really are outside of warranty and this has not helped, the replacement of the mainboard costs around 500-600 usd (over 400 euro) for the part, exluding TAX and shipping + replacement service. that is the official price of the part from http://www.zandparts.com/acer/index.php?cPath=40886_76325_76326 the official acer parts distributor. a local repairer or a acer service center may be able to obtain the mainboard at a lower price than what is offered to the general public. it\015\012is not worth the repair most likely, see if you can get someone to look\015\012at the laptop and take it apart and see if there is anything that can\015\012be done to save it. good luck.

Squeaky hinge I have a Dell XPS M1530 that has a right squeaky hinge. I cannot hear the squeak when i open it. I can only hear it when it is on an uneven surface, such as a bed, and it moves. I dont want to send it to Dell, and I really dont want to take it apart. I'm not sure where the squeak is coming from. (besides the hinge)


The Squeak could be from the plastic that surrounds the LCD wires and while moving or typing cause friction and thats when you hear it. Also it could be the hinge screws inside the LCD screen are loose and it causes that noise also. Tell you the trut ... PC Laptops

Computer "turns on" i hear four to five beeps, but the monitor gets no signal. a friend gave me the computer, only once did i see it boot up fully but it froze up so i had to restart it and it wont work. everytime i try i get the same thing four or five beeps and monitor says no signal. so i dont know whats happening. its a gateway computer runing windows xp. thats all i know. i know the monitor is good cause i tested it on another computer.


Without knowing the exact frequency/length of the beeps my first guess would be a bad stick of ram or a bad video card. If there is more than one stick of ram in the computer try it with one of the sticks pulled, pulling each stick until it does boo ... Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop
