    I have the same problem with notebook pavilion dv6000.I tried to remove the memory boards and put them back again,but it didn't help.Last time I started it the problem to start was reported,but the computer was not able to specify the cause of the problem and fix it.Since then,I've never got it started again.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    My computer is doing the same thing, except after making the noise I can turn it on, but it takes me forever to figure it out because it always messes up.

    I had the same problem. Just reset the ram board. Take it out put it back in and the beeping noise is gone and then the computer will work fine. I had to do this several times.

Most likely a ram problem. Sometimes reseating the memory will fix the problem.

Remove and reseat the RAM On most notebook PCs, removing and reinserting the memory is a simple step and does not require advanced technical knowledge of the computer. HP recommends reseating the memory module before arranging for warranty service repair. If you are not confident following the steps for removing and replacing the memory module in this document, contact an HP support specialist for assistance.
NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the RAM, any damage caused by the RAM and/or by the person when trying to install or upgrade the RAM is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade.Some HP notebooks may have a secondary memory module located under the keyboard. For removal and replacement instructions pertaining to the second memory module contact an HP support specialist for assistance. WARNING: This product contains components that are easily damaged by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, set the notebook on a grounded surface that dissipates any static charge, and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC. Use the following steps to remove and replace the memory modules. These steps should be repeated for each memory module installed in your notebook. Step 1 - Remove the battery

  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Reseat the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Locate the alignment slot on the memory module and align it to the empty board receptacle.
  4. Grasp the memory module by the edge and push gently to install it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  5. Press the expansion memory board down to latch the tabs.
  6. After replacing the module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
After the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.

It could be RAM. Try switching the RAM. Most computers have two RAM modules. Try trading places with the two. If that brings it almost to life, one module is bad. Look online and buy a cheap memory module. Don't buy from Eagle memory. The guy sells junk and doesn't give refunds.

Vista sucks anyway, and anything that can run Vista should be able to run Windows 7. This is a blessing in disguise. Buy Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade and install it.You legally qualify for the upgrade version if your computer came with Vista.

It would not be possible since AIM share desktop only runs in windows environment. if you would be doing a system recovery, the contents of the HDD will be refreshed meaning it would run starting outside of windows.
