When i switch on my Acer 1353XC i get the Acer blue screen and a contnuous bleep-it wont boot normally-and if i press F2 no adjustments to the BIOS makes any difference.

But if i press Fn or F12 which i enabled it boots. I can shut the sound up because i have external speakers which i can switch off but i'd like to fix the problem.

Though its an old machine it had very little use for years so i did some upgrades-bigger Hard disc and RAM-all worked well until this recent fault appeared. I cant use the recovery disc because i installed the XP service packs 2 & 3.

I got an AVG freebie anti-virus pack recently and a one time only registry clean up so its faster now exept for the fault.
