That's something on the motherboard. The technical manual explains what it is. If you can't find it on the Internet, ask a qualified Acer tech.
It can be anything like:
- no RAM
- error when checking RAM
- no video
- invalid BIOS
All kind of circumstances that would cause the BIOS to be unable to put a decent error message on the screen. All it can do is scream a few beeps to show the CPU basically works and so does the speaker. It's like braille: learn the code and you'll understand the message.
So, I got my hands on a dead Acer 5100, When you turn it on it goes beeep, then about a second later it goes beep beep
And that's pretty much it. Any idea where to start?
I've tried to start it with a boot-cd but get nothing what so even.
