Sounds like a Power-On Self Test (POST) error.

Usually one long and three short beeps indicate a memory error.

Could anything have happened to dislodge the memory? You could try unpluging, taking out the battery, earthing yourself and then removing the cover on the memory enclosure (usually one screw at the bottom releases the cover). Check that the modules are pressed right home into their clips.

If there is more than one module, try removing one at a time to see if there is one failed one.

If the memory has failed, you are looking at new memory I'm afraid.

    Sorry - I missed an entry in the POST Beep codes table - one long and two short may be a display adaptor error. Unfortunately, with a laptop, if it's that then you are probably looking at a professional repair or a new laptop.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive or
control panel administrive tools,computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task on restart

My hp laptop has a black screen when i turn it on everything else come on what can i do to fix this


If you have access to a VGA display, you can rule out the screen but I suspect the screen itself, if you have no BIOS display either.
Replacement screens are available through a dealer or even ebay.

Blank screen on my HP IQ506 TouchSmart


Hi, you may need to do a system restore with your windows CD or try pressing the ESC button during boot up and select start in safe mode, from here you can restore your operating system to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps

Toshiba laptop 2 years old, the screen is black. The laptop turns on but get no screen.


You can try connecting an external monitor and if you can get to the CMOS/BIOS you can verify that the active screen is your laptop screen. If everything is OK on the BIOS, then probably your laptop screen is broken. To enter the Bios use F2 or F10 (depending on model) when booting.

The screen on my laptop isn't working


If you are familier with opening your laptop up, check the following: the monitor connector cable has not come loose, if this is connected securely, I would advise that you take your laptop into your local PC repairs shop to show them exactly what is happening...they will be able to diagnose the fault with a very short space of time.

Also: when you turn on the laptop, do you get any images, writing on it at all, ie, the boot up screen, does it appear? If so, and you get nothing else after the post up screen, you have a problem with the onboard graphics card.

If you do not get anything at all when you press the on button and everything seems to be working ok except you just have a black screen, there is a 99% chance that the actual screen has gone, in which case you will need to have the screen replaced. This can be a costly repair and it sometimes is not economically logical to replace the screen as the cost would be sometime greater than actually going out and buying a new laptop!

Hope this help
