SOURCE: My HP dv5000 laptop has AMI BIOS beep code - 4 beeps

It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).

Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).

If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.

Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings

Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:
  1. Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start , Shut Down , Restart the Computer , and then OK .
  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

Hp mini 110 1115sa hang on hp logo screen..

Well, I just want to comment something about it. I got the same problem and I am following the treads over the Internet and found a lot of complains to HP and few ideas; and for those whose guarantee is finished by this date, like mine, we got trouble and no real solution.
I reset hardware, and it didn't work at all. So, it seems it's just a little push for the HP Bios to work properly because the problem resists. I replaced the memory module and the same symptom. I didn't flash the Bios and didn't use the Recovery Software as those steps were mentioned not to work for this issue.
When the mini boot, I tested the Hard Drive with the utility from HP BIOS and it passed, also the Ram did. I tested them with third party software and passed, both mounted in this mini. Everything pointed out that replacing the Hard Drive would work. I installed a new 250 Gb Toshiba HD and at first boot a "clack" noise came from the HD maybe in the middle of the POST and it passed and the message that "select other boot device, bla bla.." appear. Good, but at the second try, the same problem came out: HP mini hangs on the HP logo screen. Please, any ideas will help this community. Do this new drive is bad too?
I feel some overheating, (I don't know what Atom temperature should be), by the dissipator and guess it would freezes the POST routine, or simply the BIOS is malfunctioning. I noticed that when the mini was turned off for a long time, it boots without problems even with the original hard disk and it loaded and worked fine in windows 7. Besides, I could start a Disk Clone process in order to get the same original installed software from HP. But this failed, too. Norton Ghost report "an internal inconsistency error". I guessed this was because of the bad sectors the original HD would have. After this step. I got acces to both disks using Partition Magic and other tools, even though, I partitioned the new HD. I just found a partiton table error in original disk and was fixed by Partition Magic. Everithing, as I said, looked great to remove the original HD an install the new one. But you already know.
Again, any help will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.

I have an compaq nx9010 that did not boot. If I press "esc" did not change "boot order" as showed on screen, and show the "startup" of the bios. (PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0... HP Notbook PC BIOS Version...

Maybe I am missing something here; but it sounds to me like the bios diags are not identifying a boot device. This can be caused by a bad or damaged hard drive. If the machine is more than 5 years old, you may want to try a known good hard drive in it and verify that the battery is good and the ac adapter is still good. if it is a relatively new machine, try operating without the ac adapter connected before pursuing hard drive issues.

Compaq Presario v5000 freezes on startup

If you aren't worried about what you have on the hard drive or if you have been diligent and backed everything up i would say the easiest fix is to re-format and re-install your operating system from scratch.This would re-set everything to default and in turn re-set the bios .
If your not up for that and you can get into the bios by either a F1,F2 or delete while starting up , then you could just try re-setting everything back to factory settings or default ....which ever option it gives you .... If this doesn't , any of the afore mentioned help, then my next thought would be the cpu or motherboard has the issues. good luck

Bios says no ide device found (hard frive missing?)

If the BIOS is not detecting your hard drive, then there are two possible suspects here. Could just be your hard drive or it also be your motherboard.

If you have already reseated your hard drive and memory and the symptoms are still the same, then go to the nearest local computer shop that sells HP. Have them try a known-good hard drive on your system. If it works, purchase a new hard drive. If it doesn't work, your mobo needs to be replaced.

It sounds like the hdd has failed. When you try to boot can you hear the hdd attempting to spin up? Best solution if everything else checked out would be to replace the hdd. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
