Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook

Blank screen, led lights on, intermittent beeps

Please help. I think my laptop has finally died. When I turn it on the button lights up blue, the green LED's light up, but don't flash, and it loudly beeps intermittently. The screen never turns on, only stays black or blank. Also, my wireless switch doesn't light up when turned on either. Any advise for me? It has crashed pretty seriously in the past, but never acted this way.

    No, I didn't. But I am not worried about what is on it. Since the last major crash we only save our work on memory sticks. Lucky for us. But it was still very useful fo searching the web and typing things up.



    All morning I had been taking the battery out and putting it back in. NO luck. Now as I am typing, my husband does the same thing and all of a sudden it works! Of all the rotten luck. Or I guess, good, right.



    So here are the beeps it gave me, maybe it will help to indicate what the fault was in the first place

    * *** * *** This star patter represents the pattern of the beeps. Could you tell me where the RAM is generally located on a laptop please? Thank you all for your comments and advice. AND SO FAST!!

    Great, thank you. I will check it out. Do you have any idea what would make it fault out like that and work all of a sudden?? It is so strange.

  • longmariah Oct 22, 2008

    It was working, until we turned it off and now it won't turn on again. Having the same problems listed above. How wierd.

Sounds to me like the battery may be at the end of it's useful life..usually around 2 to 3 years..

On acer aspire laptop screen is grey at startup


Hello,

1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, It probably should show an ACER logo?

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). If you do see a faint image it could mean your back light is broken.

3. When you press the power button do you get different LED's lighting up on the laptop? IE power LED, hard drive LED?

4. Does your computer give you any random beeps when it starts up?

Please answer these questions and I would be more than happy to work through this with your.

Thanks RCCT

This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

Remove all of the ram, turn the laptop on if it does not beep you have a bad motherboard. If it beeps replace the memory and remove the hard drive turn on the laptop and see if it posts. If it posts without the hard drive then the hard drive is bad. Otherwise it is probably still a bad motherboard.

You may have a bad or loose LCD, bad inverter or backlight. If you have access to a computer monitor, borrow one and while your laptop is off, plug it in your laptop's external vga connector, power the monitor, then turn on the power of your laptop. If your laptop is working, you should get a display on the external monitor.

Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.


Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.
