HP BIOS beep codes
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html

Because Hewlett-Packard (HP) uses a variety of motherboards and BIOSs, their computers use a variety of beep codes. Instead of listing each model's beep codes, links are provided to the support pages of several popular Hewlett-Packard desktops.
Note: Hewlett-Packard and Compaq merged in 2002 and the new company dropped the Compaq name from all but a few consumer product lines--such as Presario desktops and notebooks. This table lists only HP-branded desktops, while the next table lists Compaq-branded machines.

SOURCE: hp tower will not reboot

Sorry to hear you're having problems.
As simple as it sounds - remove the cover and blow out the system.
I hear that Best Buy and Staples are giving free check ups. I would check with them for the freebee and not tell them it isn't booting. Just an idea - sneaky in a way but I have had pc's not boot and them after a cleaning boot right up.
This isn't a permanent fix you understand.

Best of it

SOURCE: hp tower will not reboot

Could be a tough one for someone who isn't in front of your computer.
You could try to get into safe mode. Turn it on and then keep hitting the F8 key until a screen comes on giving you some options. Also you could try inserting the CD that came with it, not to re install, but to just wake it up, then remove it.
Advice would be to buy a back up external hard drive and only use it to back up weekly, this way you have a copy of registry etc.
Hope it works.
One more thing you could try is to see if your memory chips are loose inside the case, sometimes dirt keeps them from making contact with the board's contacts, causes the same thing.

Alienware Area-51 Desktop won't boot up long beep


The fan to the left of your RAM slots needs to spin, it may be the reason for your problem. If this is the CPU fan then you may have a dead CPU.

Contact a computer technician for repair or claim warranty support.

Take care!

Short beep then long beep


Per the HP website from my search for "BIOS beep codes HP," your computer has a problem with the memory (towards the bottom, expand out "Beep codes common to HP and Compaq desktop PCs:"

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=bph07107#N194

If your computer is under warranty, I would recommend calling HP for a solution beyond this point.

If it is not under warranty, make sure the computer is unplugged from power, use ESD precautions (Electrostatic Discharge - ground yourself from static electricity by touching something in the room - techs used grounding wrist straps) open the case, and IF (big if for an HP, but it's possible) your computer has more than one memory module, try removing one, then see if the computer will work properly. If it does, you have one bad stick of memory). If it doesn't repeat the test process with the other stick of memory.

I have a HP a6300f computer. It won't boot. Once I turn it on, it beeps for 17 seconds, is silent for 10 seconds, and follows by another beep for 17 seconds. I'm not sure what the problem is.


The duration and time of the beep codes is going to tell you what the problem is..

Here is the hp page that has the beep code information.
HP Beep Codes

The specific beep code info is towards the bottom.

Hope this helps

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...


If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.
