Acer Aspire M1610 makes only a long beep when starting
Posted on 2011-10-13
I'm having a problem with Acer M1610.
Initially it was supplied with Vista Home Basic OEM OS, but I've created a dual boot and installed a brand new Win7 Home OS. Everything worked fine, except that it was impossible to find Win7 HW drivers for on board graphics and net adapter.
During update, however, after one (of many) restarts, the PC suddenly could not start up at all. That means, even the BIOS is not activated, I guess.
Instead a long (approx. 5secs) beep starts and comes again for every approx. 5 secs. After some time no more beeps arrive. There is power in the indicator and the fan rotates, but screen is dark.
I've tried to take out the CMOS battery, but it was OK (3V) and the RAM modules, but no change.
Is anybody having a clue? Is it HW?
