You could have had a corrupted update. Do you have the CD that came with the computer? There is a BIOS restore utility on it. Download the 1st BIOS version from the website and see if you get the same results.

Beeping & no display

beeping at boot means different things. google beep codes if you have another pc?. could be ram failure, processor, mobo failure , etc. could be a flat battery-which can stuff up the bios and wont boot. So check the mobo batt isnt flat first and reset the mobo bios- jumper pin. Hope that helps.

HP Mini110 doesn't power up

why make it worse , messing with BIOS like that.
if the battery BIOS is over , 2.9v its good if not replace it
and never short batteries out ever, that is web BS you read.

test one is does it run with main battery removed, y/n
yes good
no, does BIOS come up, with line power only
yes, good,
no bad, if bad then check for 19vdc at the line pack.
18.5v is lowest i think, 50ma is not good off.
if power is correct, 19v, then and BIOS is dead.
then remove ram and all things, like you did and is correct actions.
still BIOS is dead (means screens BIOS DEAD)
yes, dead then the MOBO is bad.
whats bad on it who knows/?
3million transistors there to fail.
why mess with it? circa 2009?
i bet that reflow made it worse. (its not trivail that)
did you pull all non ecential parts off mobo?
wifi,,usb-audo card.
is the fan dead, if yes, the MOBO is toast.
the fan must come on, power on. on most HPs.
dead cold booted/
the cpu has compound but the other chips have thermal tape.
that must be correctly applied. as the manual directs you.
ebay has used MOBO for near nothing
most owners hat this Mini, its slow. ( i have one parked in attic)
so parts are cheap on it. dirt cheap why work so hard fixing a slow ATOM processor notebook, slam in a MOBO if you must.
Buy one that is for sure guaranteed No DOA. or pass....

When i replace and upgrade my ecs p4vmm2 ram up to 1gb..first it enter os but when i restarting im stuck with checking nvram" done with re installing the usb wire,reseting cmos..unplugging...

Sounds as though your new RAM may not be compatible with the ECS.This is most certainly the case if the system boots correctly with the old RAM back in place.You may need to check the specs for this mobo on the EliteGroup website to find out what RAM is compatible.

i think u are trying to upgrade ur ram with ur existing ram, if this then plz check ur old ram frequency and then select another ram with same frequency, means u have to install rams with same frequency. i hope u can understand what m i saying.

Bios ROM checksum error (Compaq SR5237CL with M2N68-LA MB)

A BIOS checksum error can be caused by a nearly flat BIOS battery.
I would replace the BIOS battery first before attempting to upgrading the BIOS.
Some motherboard BIOS firmware is upgraded by running a program that has been copy to a DOS boot disk or the upgrage maybe done from within the BIOS setup. These firmware upgrage and instructions are on the motherboard WEB site, in your case the Compaq/HP WEB site. Make sure you select the upgrade for your model motherboard.
NOTE it is possible that if you make a mistake you could ruin your motherboard, if you are not sure seek help from a computer savy friend.

Often simply disconnecting the power cable, holding power button for 15 seconds, release power button, plug back in will work

Otherwise remove CMOS battery and perform above operation

Hope it works

P4VMM2 "Checking NVRAM"

Do you know where the lithium battery is located on that motherboard?

Replace it and reset your BIOS.

Jun 11, 2008 | EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard

1 Answer


Hi, This message "Checking NVRam" is part of the BIOS/CMOS POST even before Windows loads up. Offhand two things you can try: 1. Do a CMOS reset by temporarily moving the jumper near the battery to the opposite pair or by removing the Lithium battery for a couple of minutes or as prescribed by your motherboard's user manual; 2. If #1 is a no go, perhaps you should consider flashing your BIOS. If neither works out, it is possible that you have a hardware/motherboard problem and would require replacement. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with your motherboard brand/model, how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
