It's not the computer that's beeping...the computer is completely dead. It's the ac adapter that's beeping.
As soon as I plug it into the back of the computer, it starts beeping at a rate of about once per second, and it continues indefinitely until I unplug it.
What you're describing is a function of the computer itself...I believe this to be a power problem. This is an all-in-one computer, so I'm not that familiar with these. The AC Adapter is a LITEON Model PA-1131-07 that's the size of a brick...much like a laptop. That's what's doing the beeping and I'm wondering if there's a battery in this thing or if it's just strictly a transformer.
I got the whole thing, a new adapter and a new power cord.
I've had the computer for maybe 7 months or so. I live in a very rural area, so the power trips off fairly often. This computer has always been plugged into a UPC for that very reason, but I suppose it still could happen that the UPC didn't do it's job.
