Dear Barry,

I do have a huge problem since I attempted to test run the 1.04 iso version.

The notebook ran very happily suse 9.3 until this test.

I downloaded the suggested iso, wrote it on a cd with k3b on that very notebook. Booted from that freshly written cd.

Since I know that ACPI on the 532 is not entirely supported I entered '2 (no acpi)' at the boot prompt. The system went dark almost instantly, and ever since never came back.

Not even a normal power on attempt does not even bring up the bios messages. The system appears to do three very faint beeps. It's almost as the notebook has been put in a permanent not-to-start-bios (wake up) mode. HD and cd spin happily without any action.

I even reset the cmos by removing the little round battery for a while. Without joy.

Any help as to what this could be and how to revert it would be greatly appreciated. I live in Auckland New Zealand. So if convenient we could have a go over the phone.

Please reply to jos@basicstuff.co.nz Thank you.

Did you check the voltage of the battery when you had it removed, also pull the RAM stick/s and reseat it/them.

Are the beeps that you hear three short beeps, or one long and two short?

AMI bios.

Three short = ram problem

1 long and two short - video bios/card failure

I love it when a plan comes together
