Re: HP Pavillion doesn't turn on
1 long beep two short beeps means video fault.
check video card ... remove , make sure clean and reseat it.
also could be bad sectors on hd preventing vga data to load thus giving a faulty vga post signal.

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.
You've checked the memory board/card, but have you tried using another memory card? The 1 long followed by 2 short beeps indicates that there's a problem with the memory card. Try to remove the memory card, then wipe the gold traces with a dry cloth and put it back in.
If you try replacing the memory card but you get the same problem, then proceed with the video card.
Hi... I had the same problem... The solution is only temporary and you will have to reapply it after around 5 to 6 boots cuz it'll just happen again (the beep syndrome).
Just heat up the laptop by turning it on and covering its air vents with your hands.
Then after you hear the beeps turn it off. Turn the laptop on again and immediately turn it over upside down with the lid closed ofcoarse (simply put it on its back).Hopefully you wont hear the beeps and when you open up the laptop lcd...voila display.
I have just experienced same p[roblem with my Pavillion laptop. Seems to be a graphics card problem. (Hp have issued extended warranties to cover this problem, which is apparently quite common in the pavillion range?)
I have had to send my machine back to HP to fix it. gah.
