I was installing Linux several days ago, and unfortunately, there's an error that appeared in the installation process. I wasn't able to see what error was that because it restarted immediately.
After that, my computer won't get out of the POST.
If I press any key continuously, it will eventually beep every keypress. So I decided to remove the CMOS battery thinking that it has something to do with BIOS, as per instructed also to me by a colleague. But after removing the battery for about 10 seconds, the same thing still occurs. It still won't get out of the POST.
I've searched on the net on how to resolve this and I've seen a post about shorting the J1 and J2 pins on the mainboard. But after that, my laptop now turns on for 2 seconds then turns off again.
If the AC source is supplied, it keeps repeating the process of turning on for 2 seconds and then turns off again. If only the DC source, it only happens once. I can still hear the fan and the HDD functioning.
Any remedy for this? My laptop is almost 3 years old now. And warranty has expired.
Edit: The problem relies with the RAM. Now I can get into the POST, but only stops there. (Same as this http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-29101RzqNYE/UHU2cvXvxmI/AAAAAAAAAAo/qJP78dptPMM/s1600/Acer+Icon+Logo.png)
Please don't mind this thread, as this was resolved already. Thank you!
