Seems contagious mine did the same thing!not sure how helpful this will be but the bios handles the starting up part and if it's corrupt then that wont happen.If you can get the bios flash that you need onto a floppy then that might help at the moment I'm waiting for a new bios chip.Did you receive any errors at all ?awdflash.exe? insert disc etc ?

Gateway MP8708 Won't boot past BIOS and won't boot into CD/USB/Safe Mode on XP - Blank screen with keyboard dead - Num locks on and wireless light

Somehow your MBR (Master Boot Record) likely got corrupted or possibly your hard drive went bad coincidentally.

Simply, you will start your computer from your Windows CD/DVD install disk, then when at a DOS prompt ( D:\ ) you will then type: FDISK /MBR (press enter).

Find your Operating System install DVD and start your computer with it, then follow instructions within this discussion:
Restore Windows XP MBR without Windows XP disc

Alternatively, review my search results for other instructions:

My laptop does not boot to windows xp and instead beep three times. The power light flashes with every beep

The three beeps is a warning that the Power on self test reports a failure of hardware. it could be video, memory, Hard Drive, etc. If you can get into the diagnostics, you can tell more. If nothing works, It may be the motherboard.

HP dv6000 Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time

The first issue you had with one long beeps and two short beeps is a memory module error. see the following HP website: I would replace the memory chips and try again. If you have more than one chip try booting with one at a time to discover that one of them may be bad.

I long + 3 short beeps or 3 short + 1 long beeps indicates memory problem.
The RAM module/s may need reseating to re-establish proper electrical contact.
If it still doesn't boot up then :-
Get the RAM module/s may be faulty, test the module/s in another laptop or get your friendly computer shop to test them.

Hp 9695c wont boot only ht HP banner shows but wont go to the initialization

Press and hold down Shift key, when you hear the beep, until system boots.
If you dont time it right you will get a keyboard error, dont worry, just press F1 key and immediately hold your Shift key again.
Your system should boot into basic mode, then you need to check your system for virus or last software that may have been installed.

Wont boot

I think there is a problem with the pin connection of the RAM. Remove the RAM again, then clean the pin with the contact cleaner spray then plug in again. do same thing with the CPU/processor if necessary. if you got One short beep when boot windows the problem haven't from hardware but on your system. try to run scandisk, disk cleanup, or press F8 while booting to go into "safe mode". Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
