    My HP pavillion sounds one long beep followed by two shorter beeps, and has a black screen. The reboot disk doesnt work either. Sometimes when I keep turning the laptop off and on again it works, however when I turn it off the same problem arises.

    Please help!

    Same issue HP Pavillion dv2000 laptop, did a restart after a software upgrade and beeep pause then two quick beeps.

    If I leave it shut off for a while it starts up either on safe mode or normal.
    Is this a heat issue as it "gets better" when it is shut off?

  1. Computer beeps irregularly when the computer is turned on.
  2. Computer turns on but does not boot.
Note: Not all computers have beep codes, some of the newer computers have LED's that light up that indicate the error or have a sound file to indicate the error.
Cause: This issue can be caused by any of the below situations.
  1. New hardware conflicting with old hardware.
  2. Bad or failing hardware device.
  3. Connections not connected or connected properly.
  4. Recent electrical storm that caused a surge that damaged computer.
  5. Other hardware issue.
Identify beep code If you are receiving a sequence of beeps, these beep codes are meant as a method of quickly identifying what computer component is failing or bad.

The usually problems are related to: memory, video, keyboard or some similar hardware issue. Let me know your bios name and your beep sequence (short, long and quantity of beeps) and i will tell you which problem are you having in your computer.

Hp pavilion a1330n fan runs, nothing else happens

A lot of HP Pavilion laptops suffered from improperly installed VGA chips on the motherboard which did not have properly thermal control. Overtime the chip will partially or entirely lose contact from the motherboard and you will experience this symptom.

This started with early 2007ish Pavilion DV2000, 6000, and 9000 series laptops, but has been an ongoing issue in several models since. A repair is possible, but NOT by baking your motherboard or using a thermal heatgun.

You need to take it to a lab with an infrared REFLOW machine to properly REFLOW the solder from the VGA chip to the motherboard. Going rates are from $75 to $150 flat for the job.

Good luck

I got my HP Pavilion dv2000 in the end of 2006 and after a bit over a year the screen turns black and with 3 beep sounds when on the turn ons'. Since then, I have used it till now I saw some articles that...

Unfortunately beep codes change from manufacture to manufacture and even from model to model with some companies. 3 beeps on start-up is typically related to a memory failure but based on the way you described the issue it is possible there is an issue with the integrated video. The link below will bring you to HP's official trouble shooting guide. I recommend removing and reseating memory modules. A hard reset is also a good idea.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Laptop pavilion 8310 no dispaly, getting beeps on start up

Remove laptop battery, and unplug AC power adapter for ten minutes, if this does not work there is either an hardware fault, or a system problem.

If the computer try to load Windows, then you get an error message,then you usually fix the problem reinstalling windows.

If the computer beeps and you get nothing on the screen, then it is usually an hardware fault.

That beeps indicated that there is a problem in the video Graphics adapter and in the memory.

try remove and clean the memory and then fix it back, im sure that would resolve your problems. however if this not solve then your should replace the memory.

If affraid to do so, then maybe let the repairman do it for you.
