Open the computer and take out the small battery, mesue the voltage for +3vdc and replace if the voltage is low, clean the contacts battery, and clean the memory RAM, contacts with solvent contacts. The battery HOLD the supply for MEMORY RAM, by that reason the beep codes coming.
After that you can restart and update the BIOS download from you www8.hp.com and install according with the version that you have
Otherwise you can assist via ONLINE CHAT.

God bless you

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

Got beep codes on a pavillion 5150 laptop


Your BIOS manufacturer's site will explain in full the beep codes you're experiencing. The beeps you are explaining is your system failing the POST (power on checks), it emits a series of beeps to tell you the precise nature of the problem. Beep codes are BIOS-specific. The following BIOS sites should help you. You must however first, identify which BIOS you've got.
