Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Error beeping 1 long beep follow by 2 shorts beeps

My HP Pavilion dv6045nr will not show any display when booted up. Screen remains completely black, not just dim. Error code is 1 long beep, followed by two short beeps. Information I've found elsewhere indicates that may be a problem with the RAM, but I've tried replacing it and it had no effect. It has two RAM slots and I've tried swapping the cards, as well as running off one at a time. Basically i covered every possible combination of RAM placement, but got the same error every time. It was working one night with no indications of trouble, but a few hours later when I woke up it seemed that it would not "wake up." When I tried rebooting, I got the error beeps and it hasn't had a display since. I have NOT tried an external monitor yet, I would have to find someone with a desktop and don't know anyone off hand. I appreciate any help anyone can give!

I AM A LAPTOP REPAIR TECHNICIAN.AND I HAVE SEEN THIS ISSUE WITH HP MODELS RANGING FROM DV2000, 6000 AND 9000 RANGE. THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE ON BOARD NVIDIA GRAPHICS CHIP. THE ONLY WAY TO REPAIR IS TO REPLACE THE MOTHERBOARD.HP HAVE EXTENDED THE WARRENTY WITH THESE MODELS FOR AN EXTRA 6 MONTHS. BUT THIS RANGE OF LAPTOPS ARE A COMPLETE MESS. WIRELESS PROBLEMS ARE ALSO VERY FREQUENT.OF ALL THESE MACHINES THAT HAVE COME IN TO MY SHOP FOR REPAIR , THERE WAS ONLY ONE THAT I CAN REMEMBER THAT HAD A RAM PROBLEM. THE REST HAVE ON BOARD GRAPHICS PROBLEMS.

First of all, try connecting an external display source like a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook after turning it on and press hold the FN key and press the F4 key once to toggle the display to the monitor connected.
If you are able to see the display on the Desktop monitor connected to the Notebook, the issue is with the LCD, if not, the issue is either with the Graphic Card or with the Motherboard.
Additionally, I would like to inform you that HP had identified some hardware issues with few Notebooks installed with AMD Processors and is providing free repairs for notebooks purchased and currently available in US and Canada.
You need to get the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N and is printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook.
Check if the Product Number of your Notebook is listed in the list available in the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01300427
If your Notebook product Number is listed in the link provided above and if the Notebook is installed with AMD Processor, you need to contact HP Chat Support and provide the required details and get the Notebook repaired by HP for free.
You can find more information about this repair offered by HP from the link below :

Hope this helps...

Hello jhef_ten24,

This isn't really a RAM problem, the problem usually occurs when the BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen and so it displays a blank screen.
As the video card may be either embedded/external, there may be a problem with the motherboard also.

If you are using an external Graphics card, then make sure you disable the onboard graphics to be able to use the external graphic card.
Try disabling Video ROM shadowing option that is available on the BIOS.
Try checking your system using another display card
Also make sure you seat the card tightly into the slot.
You can alternatively check the graphics card by putting it on another system.

If all these steps fail to fix your issue, then there is probably an issue with your motherboard. Please update us so that we may help you out.

thx

Just for future reference, for anyone who had a 12 month warranty, HP has extended the waranties to 24 months on certain models which are showing similar display issues:

"HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000."

I have just experienced same p[roblem with my Pavillion laptop. Seems to be a graphics card problem. (Hp have issued extended warranties to cover this problem, which is apparently quite common in the pavillion range?)
I have had to send my machine back to HP to fix it. gah.

If you are recving 1 long and two short beeps, it is not a memory problem.
It is not a Lid closing or lid switch problem.
If you are able to switch to and from your LCD and Monitor, you are lucky.
I have been up and down the road with several HP DV6000 series units, all have had the 1 long and 2 shot beeps.
HP is aware of this problem and has offered an extended 1 year from date of original warranty expiration. Another words 2 years from date of purchase. HP will ask for $365.00 + or - ? for this repair.
Their repair consists of a motherboard replacement.

If you go to HP's web site, you can look up your model and if in warranty, have it sent back for repair.
The problem will not get better in time but only worsen. The heat sink on the dual core units is not handling the heat transfer properly.
The board is a 2 sided wafer which has displayed failure in several places, due to the heat load and transfer design. Area of problem is directly under NVIDIA chip look for craters. Theses are solder points the size of a pins head which because of the heat and the stress of the transfer bracket above, have separated making in some cases an intermittent connection to chip.
The best thing to do is have a technician remove the board from inspection and blow out the heat sink and surrounding areas.
Apply new heat sink tape and grease where needed and re-assemble.

You must update your BIOS ver. to current.
This new version will address the Voltage and Fan Control Speeds in a better manor.
If your unit is just now giving you these errors, now is the time to act.
Just like in a A/C unit at home, a restricted air flow will make unit run longer and hotter.
Their are no filters here, once lint and dust have collected in the coils, it is just a matter of time.
Hope this helps you in your problems.
Anybody reading this note having a DV6000 series unit, should check at their web site for warranty and call back issues.

P.S. if you are a technician and feel you want to repair the board yourself, drop me an email with the model number and I will explain in more detail.

Problem for HP HP Pavilion dv2000 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC The power is OK but I get 1 long beep and 2 short beeps when switching on, the screen remains blank and no activity on the laptop


Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it
Hope this gives you the information you need

1 long beep and 2 short beeps


This must be an Award BIOS.

1 long and 2 short beeps indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

I doubt there is anything you can do, other then taking it in for service.

It's most likely the video controller.

You might try connecting an external monitor, but I doubt it will function.

I have a HP Pavillion DV 2000 laptop with me. When i boot my system it gives 1 long beep followed by two short beeps and the system doesnt boot. I am not sure as what to do. Can someone help me here?


This website:
http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

Lists standard beep codes for computers. The one long, followed by two short beeps indicates a display problem according to the site.

I have heard other people say that the same beep codes specify a RAM problem.

Have you recently installed any new RAM or a new graphics card, or made changes to either.

It seems likely to be the graphics card because of the missing info on the screen. Usually when RAM is bad there is something on the screen.
