My wife purchased an Acer Desktop Computer Aspire T TC-330-UR11 A9-Series APU A9-9420 (3.00 GHz) 8 GB DDR4 1 TB HDD AMD Radeon R5 Windows 10 in 2018.
It was running fine until today when it wouldn't start up. It gives a single beep, long pause, single beep.
Doing a search I found this: 1 Beep - Refresh Failure. Reseat/replace memory, troubleshoot motherboard.
I reseated the memory stick but there was no change. I blew out all the dust. Made sure everything was connected and reseated the GPU:
EVGA GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 01G-P3-1302-LR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
I ordered new memory and the exact same GPU in case it is the the graphics card.
Past that I am not sure what to do. If it is something on the motherboard I can't find any information on what to replace it with.
I am guessing a mini-ATX that is compatible with the memory I just purchased: Crucial 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 2400 MHz SDRAM 288-pin DIMM Memory Kit CT2K8G4DFS824A
Since I read that the CPU is soldered to the existing motherboard I need to get that also.
Any suggestions on what to do if the memory and GPU don't help? Any suggestions on replacement motherboards if it turns out that is the problem?
