Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
There is power to the laptop, however it does not start up just a blank black screen, after appoximatly 5 seconds the is one long beep followed by 2 short beeps. i checked with online support and the said it is possibly the memory, opened it up checked and reseated the memoory cards. still does the same now i have heard it could be the video card which is connected to the mother board. i have a HP Pavilion dv6000, what do you think,
also its warrently has run out.
Just to help, I had a similar problem and it was the fan for the Processor that went out. I doubt you have a memory problem or a software problem. It in my case was a hardware problem and it was the cooling fan.
Hope it helps Samuel

1 long and 2 short beeps is always vga (graphics/display card)
either not seated properly,no firmware for it (or drivers) or damaged.
BUT pc's have a nasty habit of telling you this when sometimes you have bad sectors on hd.
because sys cant locate info on device it will assume it is missing or faulty.
before you try to remove vga first check for bad sectors..you need a hd recovery bootdisk to do this (not os recovery disk)
if you cant find such software or dont know what to look for send ur email and I'll send you my link to download one.
spotmau does a good job and has other useful utlities paragon hdd recovery disk is just for hd's but the best I've used for that job.
