When I turn the laptop on, I get a set of 4 beeps, repeated 4 times.


Hi,

Not good news i'm affraid, Four cycles of four short beeps and a blank screen = System board (Security chip) failure.

I'd call 800-IBM-SERV and see if they can advise. It might require a trip to the depot or they could give you instructions over the phone.


Regards.

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

System not booting


Try power cycling the laptop by taking the battery out and pressing the power button 10 times. On the 10th time, hold it down for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and attempt to boot the laptop.

If that doesn't work, listen for a cooling fan when you attempt to boot the laptop. If you don't hear the fan, it's likely that the motherboard is malfunctioning somewhere.

Do you hear any beep codes when you try to turn it on? Here is a list of beep codes for reference:

No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating
Hope this helps! Good luck!
