Beeps on startup

  [DELETED] 09:17 01 Jun 2006

Well, after just 3 months of working faultlessly my Acer laptop let me down last night.

It started normally but froze at the desktop and I had to use the on/off button to turn it off.

The machine didn't restart initially, when I tried to turn it back on I just heard a series of 'bleeps'. I used the on/off button to turn it off, disconnected the mains, disconnected the battery, reconnected everything, turned it back on and it was fine.

I know that the 'bleeps' are significant and I would like to know what they mean, does anyone know where I can find out?

Although the machine now seems to be working fine, because of these 'bleeps' I'm concerned that there is a more serious problem waiting to bite.

The beeps mean different things according to how they sound and signal device errors, they are listed in the motherboard documentation.
