Problem with my Acer Aspire laptop

Hey everyone,

Before I state my problem, I am not a computer guy. So please, if you use any computer terms please explain them to me :) Anyway, this is what I know about my laptop. It has a 64 bit system, and runs windows 7 It's an Acer Aspire 5750 and I bought it new in 2011 (or 2012 don't remember exactly)

This is the problem : After I press the power button, it boots up but gets stuck at this screen (see image) It won't respond to pressing F2, and when I press any random key on the keyboard it starts making a beep noice for every key I pressed. I have tried booting it up while unplugging my mouse and battery but both didn't work. I had this problem happened 2 times already, and what I then did was wait 1 day and then try again and it would start up again immediately.

Ok it won't let me post the link (forum thinks it spam, wtf) of the 2nd picture (the screen my laptop get stuck on)

Basically, all I see is the word "Acer" in white letters with a black background, and on the bottom left it says 'Press F2 for setup"

If its stuck on the Acer logo screen then it's not completing POST (power on self test).

try removing and refitting both the memory and the hard drive if they are easy to get at.

Thanks for your reply,

Unfortunately did this not work, it is still stuck at the same screen. I removed the hard drive and the ram and then plugged them back in again

make sure no USBs attached or DVD disks in drive

try booting with RAM removed, it should beep at you. iif it does reft RAm an retry the boot.

Omg, it just booted up. However I dont think its because of the ram thing (as it didnt beep) PLEASE let me know what I should do now to prevent this from happening again.
