    Hello all.
    My boss is having problems with her Acer Travelmate C104TCi (tablet pc). She was working in a design program when Windows popped up with a message saying that it was going into hibernation mode. Then after a 5 second countdown the computer shut down. Now when we try and turn the computer back on it beeps 4 times then powers off again. No bios or load screens or anything. My first thought was that the battery was dead and it shut down automatically to save her data but it's been charged and there is no change.

    System Specs.
    PIII 900
    265mb RAM
    40gb HD
    10/100Base T & Wireless 802.11b
    Running Windows XP Tablet PC Edition

    4 short beeps is a system timer failure

    the beeps can differ such as 1 long 2 short 1 long etc....so your sure they are 4 short beeps?

    Different BIOS use different beep codes really, but 4 short beeps can possibly be a system timer failure...which makes sense with the PC going into hibernation mode with a 5 second countdown.

    Please verify it's 4 short beeps and I will try and research her particular PC.
