ussually three beeps indicates something odd. depending on the bios it could be a couple of things. have there been any hardware changes?

✔ Best Answer
I'm probably stating the obvious but if you never ever see anything on the screen then it has to be a hardware fault of some sort.

3 beeps usually mean a RAM fault (although the computer make and model number would help). If you are prepared to look inside you could remove the RAM then clean its edge connectors with a pencil eraser. Also pop it in and out a few times to clear any oxide off the sockets themselves.

There are memory tests that you can download if the above doesn't help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No harm done by checking RAM but on an Acer Inspire 9303 it seems that three beeps means a motherboard failure (possibly the display module). Unless you are in to fixing such things then it will need to be repaired or buy a new computer.

I assume you did not do anything beforehand like flash the BIOS.
