Hi there , if you have three beeps , one long and two shorts, on this laptop motherboards that is video chipset failure.

RAM Memory has got nothing to do with this.

The video chipset is bad, and the computer returns right error code beeping on post.

Being the video chipset bad, the laptop wont even work with an external monitor.


one short :no errors

one long, two short Video failure

The only fix for this problem is replacing the motherboard, as the video chipset is built in motherboard.

A runaround solution may be using temporarily an external video card and an external monitor: StarTech.com USB VGA Mini

How to Fix Your Beeping Computer
We have all had a problem with our computer but have no clue if it was something simple that we could fix or if it needed to go to the computer doctor. You may have noticed that when you start your computer you hear a series of beeps. They are not random beeps. The computer is sending special beeps that have meaning. The computer beep codes are programmed into the computer BIOS (Basic Input Output System). The BIOS basically controls your computer's operations and runs a check every time your system is turned on. Each BIOS manufacture has its own patterns, but there are some standard ones that you can use to help determine what is wrong with your computer.
Instructions
How to Fix Your Beeping Computer Step1
Your first step is to look at the information about the meaning of the beeping codes. Beep codes are important and useful tools when troubleshooting booting issues. When you turn on your computer system, it is called POST (Power On Self Test).
Step2
No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.
Step3
One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.
Step4
Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.
Step5
Eleven beeps are related in the cache of the mother board and this means that the motherboard needs replaced. One long and three short beeps mean that it is related to a loose memory chip. Try reseating it. One long and eight short beeps means that the video cards needs reseated.

if this does not solves your problem.replace the ram as the new ram is required to solve the problembecause the ram in your machine is gone faulty.so its beeping.and do not again n again use this ram and on the machine it will corrupt whole machine.buy the new ram then on the machine it will work.its a ram problem for sure in your case.
thanks.

First test the memory modules. Make sure that they are properly seated in their slots. Next, insure the hard drive is properly seated in its slot as well. If both of these are checked and it still doesnt power up, then have the laptop checked by a service technician. It could possibly be motherboard damage. Did you notice any unusual noises or smells the last time it powered up successfully?

Hi,
Please check the following DIY
1.confirm that any booting sound is coming if yes then the issue with your screen might be disabled with FN combination.
2.If Fn combination has no use then issue might be with the screen also(in case the windows sound is coming).
3.If beeps are coming then this is the issue related with the RAM refixing or the module is faulty.
4.try once with refixing the battery otherwise refix the ram if u can.
5.If refixing does not have any sense then issue is with the module itself.

How to connect a Monitor to laptop


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Hey Kerry!

Is it possible that you or your children have pressed the key combination to turn off the external monitor, or all monitors?

Look at the top row of keys, the Function Keys. You will see that along with the key name, like F5, there is another bit of text in a different color, a color keyed to a key on the bottom row of your keyboard, called the Function Key. It probably has only Fn on it, in orange, or a similar color to the alternate text on the top row of Function Keys, F1 through F12.

Each of those top row keys controls something different on the laptop.

One of them cycles through using the laptop's monitor, using an external monitor, or using both/neither. It also may be a different key which tells the laptop to use a connected projector, as in when you give a presentation and need to increase the size of the image you are putting on the screen at the end of the room, or table.

Carefully, one key at a time, hold down the Fn key at the lower left of the keyboard, and touch the Function Key on the top row which seems to correspond to the monitor, to turn it off, switch to an external, or switch to a projector. In addition, there is a set of two keys which will turn the image darker, such that it won't show up at all, and then one nearby which does the opposite, turns the image back to viewable again.

It is entirely possible that these keys have been toggled such that any combination will remove display from your computer screen or any external you plug in.

In addition, be sure that your external monitor is plugged into a monitor adapter on the laptop, because the serial adapter on the back looks the same, and will even allow you to plug the monitor into it. But it will not only not work for the monitor, it can burn it out completely.

Check them all. Find the laptop's manual and in the back look for Troubleshooting, in which section there should be a list of what to do and how to do it, to remedy extraneous key presses which can ruin your whole day, week, or even year!

Cheers!

Let us know how it went?

Keyboard lights up screen stays black....after inserting recovery disk screen still remains black...


Would like you to attach an external monitor for a diagnoses.

A VGA monitor.
Can be a CRT monitor that resembles a small TV, or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of the monitor to the laptop's VGA connector.

[For the HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC, the VGA connector is on the Left side at the Rear. Second port from the rear. 15 pins.
3 rows of 5]

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT style allow it to warm up.
3) Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not, press, and hold down on the FN key,
(Second key from the left, on the Bottom row on the Keyboard),
and tap on the F4 key.
(Top of Keyboard towards the left)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap on the F4 key.

There are 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

IF, the display shows up on the external monitor, and if it is OK, the problem lies in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

More on that in a moment.

IF, the display does Not show up on the external monitor, or if it is garbled, the graphics chipset is bad.

HOWEVER, there is a problem with the graphics chipset, for the dv6000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's.
More specifically it isn't actually the graphics chipset itself, but the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
More on this in a moment.

External VGA monitor shows a good display;
Video Cable:
The video cable is checked for apparent damage first, and at the same time, see if it's connectors are tightly plugged in.

On one end, the video cable is plugged into the motherboard.

(ALL power removed, AC adapter { Charger} and Battery, the Switch Cover is removed, and the Keyboard, far enough to lay it back out of the way. Keyboard Cable still attached to motherboard. The Display Cable is the one to the Far left, right under the left side of the LCD screen. The cable next to it, to the immediate right, is the Microphone Cable )

The video cable routed from the connection on the motherboard, up under the left Hinge Cover, and into the Display Assembly, where it then attaches to the Back of the LCD screen.

THIS connection must be checked also.

{ Just gave advice similar to this earlier. The asker's problem turned out to be a loose video cable connection, on the back of the LCD screen }

Examine the sheath of the video cable. See if there are signs of damage. If so the tiny wires inside the cable could be damaged.
Apparent damage or not, you may want to remove the video cable, and perform a continuity check with a multimeter. (Ohm's. Check each wire in the cable)

Video Cable connections prove to be tight, video cable continuity check proves video cable is OK, move on to the screen Inverter.

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Backlight is a CCFL for an HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC.
[It is 2mm Wide, and 334mm Long. Or a little thicker than 1/16th inch Wide, and a little over 13 inches Long ]

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

A screen Inverter is used to convert power (Electricity) from the laptop, FOR the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Example of a screen Inverter for a Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC,

http://www.nylaptopparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=560

The thin plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen, and is in front of the LCD screen, (Resembles a picture frame), is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen area.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-hp-pavilion-dv6000-laptop/

External VGA monitor does NOT show a good display, it is a graphics chipset mounting issue, more to follow.

Will,

It sounds like the LCD on your screen may have burned out. Here's a few things you can try to verify if that is indeed the case:.

1. Unplug the power cord and take the battery out of the laptop. Then, press and hold the power button in for at least 30 seconds. That will drain the residual power from the system. Then, plug back in only the power cord - the battery should still be out, then try to turn the computer on. See if any video occurs at all. If the screen is entirely blank after a few minutes, go ahead an unplug the power cord again to turn off all the power to the unit.

2. Put back in the battery and power cord, and plug an external monitor or projector into the laptop. Turn the laptop on and then close the lid immediately after pressing the power button. See if any video will appear on an external video source. (IE monitor or projector). If video does show on the external monitor, then open the LCD screen back up and see if any video shows there.

3. If the video does not show on an external monitor at all, try the hot keys/function keys to swap the video output. (On your model of laptop if should be the F4 key.)

4. Also try the screen brightness keys. Press and hold F3 to increase the brightness on your laptop.


If these steps all fail - then most likely, the LCD is dead. You will need to either call HP to set up a return to depot repair - or contact a certified technician to repair the laptop for you. The number to call HP is: 866-234-1377. (This can be expensive if your laptop warranty is expired.)

I hope this helps you out!

Hi There,

Your laptop needs some troubleshooting and here's the fastest (and free) way to locate your issue. Get to a friend's place (or at home) where there's a regular desktop computer monitor and connect your laptop to it. Look up at the top row of "F" keys (1 thru 12) and find the one that looks like it has to do with a monitor. With your laptop connected to the external monitor, press the "fn" key in the lower left of keyboard and hold it doen while your press the monitor transfer F key above.

If your laptop's normal display shows on the big monitor, then you just have a bad sceen that needs replacement. If all is dark on both, then your video card inside the laptop has faild and a new motherboard is needed.

Kind Regards,

TheSelkie

Will not power up


If there are lights and fan action to start with, but no screen to see, try changing or just reseating the RAM. If that fails, attach an exteral monitor to the laptop, and press the keys to switch the display to that (if required). Usually the 'Fn' (function) key plus one of the top-row buttons (it's 'f4' on this laptop). This alternates between laptop display; both displays or external display. This will check if your display is faulty - if so, would usually be backlighting failure. Replace the laptop LCD screen if so.
