I have a Revo R3600 to repair and the PC starts to boot, but immediately beeps, followed by a slight pause, then two short beeps that are close together.

There's no output on the monitor at any time.

I have tried searching online for Acer beep codes, but am unsuccessful - any ideas what the fault might be on this?

This beep code usually indicates a broken video adapter.

If the computer has a video card, replace it. If the computer has integrated graphics, the motherboard may be broken.

Hmm. I was worried that someone would say that. The graphics card is embedded, meaning that the board would be dead, which is a shame as it is a small (compact) media-PC. :o( – Brett Rigby Sep 26 '12 at 9:29
