I would not know how to do that. And I just beeped twice as I'm typing this. I am on a laptop, BTW.

to check your RAM see this link

How to Install RAM in Your Acer Laptop | eHow.com

'most' ACER machines have a memory access door on the bottom of the machine (read your manual or tell us here what the model number is) and the above linked instructions should apply--note that RAM can get loose if a laptop is bounced around a bit

note: Be aware, though, that Acer is also notorious for its "hidden memory compartment" under the keyboard, which will be 'more difficult' to check

Model # is X73S. I don't really bounce the laptop around much, but you never know, I guess. If it's easily accessible, I could probably take a look (and save the million dollar charge at MicroCenter).

no one really bounces their laptop around--but--just riding in a vehicle or being carried in a backpack can cause bouncing--Acer doesn't appear to make an X73S--but Asus does--so which is it? IF Acer there should be an access door on bottom.

in an earlier post someone mentioned using CPU ID--it's free and you can get it here:

CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting



download install and run it--it will show tons of info about your ram, motherboard, cpu and BIOS version which makes it easy to diagnose beep codes.

once you know what version BIOS (Mainboard Tab in CPU-Z) you have you can look up the beep codes here:

"speccy" is a program that goes and looks at what hardware you have.
We have the forum's own program for that, that will automatically fill the "my specs" table (scroll down to the 7th step of that tutorial) so we can see it and provide more tailored help.
