Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this troubleshooting request.

I’ve re-seated the original 4GB memory and added a further 4GB into the additional slot on my acer Aspire 5742 laptop. When I turn it on, the machine shows the initial ACER splash screen with the ‘Press <F2> to enter Setup.’ message in the bottom left-hand corner and the hard drive briefly whirls before the laptop powers down. It then powers back up and continually loops this cycle until I remove the power sources (mains and battery). When I press <F2>, I get 4 (four) short, quick beeps - which I think is telling me to re-seat the RAM. I have re-seated the RAM a handful of times without any progress in the reboot.

Any pointers please as to where I am going wrong or what to try next?
