This must be an Award BIOS.

1 long and 2 short beeps indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

I doubt there is anything you can do, other then taking it in for service.

It's most likely the video controller.

You might try connecting an external monitor, but I doubt it will function.

What might be the cause of hp pavillion dv2000 not displaying on the screen at start up and giving 3 beeps, 1 long and 2 short, sometimes it boot but doesn't get to the desktop area?


1 long beep followed by two short beeps is usually indicative of a failed/failing display adapter. On something as.... rustic as your dv2000 it can be fixed.... but probably would see better value from just replacing the unit.

Problem for HP HP Pavilion dv2000 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC The power is OK but I get 1 long beep and 2 short beeps when switching on, the screen remains blank and no activity on the laptop


Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it
Hope this gives you the information you need

One long beep and 2 short beeps


Depending upon your BIOS manufacturer, generally this POST error code means either a video card problem or a motherboard problem. If the RAM is OK then you have a motherboard problem, and this may not be cost effective to fix. Consider putting your money towards a new laptop, remove the hard disk and put it into an external USB adapter case and use it as an USB hard drive for backup etc.

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


hi,
i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
(can some creative netizen bring this to the public light to pressure HP to do the ethical things??)

HP 1 long and 2 short beeps


I had the same problem. Turn on your laptop (dv2000) and let it do its thing with the black screen and One long and Two short beeps. Keep the laptop plugged in...Now here is where the "are you kidding me" part kicks in.

Wrap your laptop (while it's on) in a blanket and put it on a bed or a couch (where the laptop won't have room to circulate air beneath it). You must leave it wrapped in the blanket for about 30 minutes minimum, or wait an hour if possible.

Chances are, your laptop will get ver hot and shut itself down at some point before you come back in an hour. When the hour is up, try turning on your laptop again. Ideally, it should work and you now have a working laptop again.

I realize this sounds crazy, but I am typing this quick fix from my dv2000 after doing exactly what i just subscribed. I read it on some other forum when i was on my wife's pc. If this doesn't work the first time, try it one or two more times. This trick has something to do with getting a "broken" (?) connection between the video card and the motherboard soddering back together.

Hope this helps at least one of you. Good luck.
