Question about HP PC Desktops
Two long beeps is the code for memory trouble. Try removing the memory modules from their sockets. Make sure the sockets are free of dust (computers can get pretty dirty inside), using compressed air (available canned from office supply places, Wal-Mart, etc.) to blow them out if needed. Make sure the contacts on the modules are clean. You can use a pencil eraser with light pressure to clean them off. Reseat the modules firmly in their sockets. Then try restarting the computer.
If the trouble continues and you have more than one memory module in the system, try replacing them one at a time and restarting the computer to try to determine which one is causing the trouble.
If the trouble still won't go away, see if you can borrow a known good memory module from someone and try that. You might have a failed system board or multiple bad memory modules. (It can happen, and can drive you nuts when you try the "one-at-a-time" trick. I've been there!)
Hope this helps!
