Blank screen long beep 2 short beeps at startup.

When I push the power button on, the screen remains blank, and the laptop makes one long beep, and two short beeps. The type of computer is an HP Pavilion Dv6000z. I'm 99.9% sure it isn't the RAM, b/c i've removed, replaced, rubbed with an eraser ect.. Any ideas on whats wrong would be great help.
Note: when I removed the Ram, it gave me a different beep error, 4 instead of one long 2 short. just fyi

The 1 long 2 short beep code means a problem in the video circuitry and the laptop can't initialize the display. This is usually caused by failure of the integrated video chipset. Unfortunately, on a laptop you can't just open the case and install a new video card like you can on a desktop. You need to replace the mainboard. Replacements are available online. Here is one source found by a Google search. (I'm just using this as an example. I haven't dealt with this site.)

The 4 beep code means no memory detected when the computer started up. No surprise there since you had taken it out.

I can understand. If you are so sure that its not RAM problem then it can be only Motherboard problem. And most probably its problem in your SMPS and thats why not getting power & giving these beeps. I hope you knows the notation of such beeps... rate this solution if it was really helpful to you

Step 1:
The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram, all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk, and remains 1 short beep : Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps : POST Error - error code shown on screen

No beep : Power supply or system board problem
Continuous beep: Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem

Repeating short beeps: Power supply or system board problem

1 long, 1 short beep : System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps: Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps: Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps : keyboard card

Any help for beeping acer laptop when opening..thanks


g'day!

i would like to know how many and the kinds of beeps? there are what they call beep codes which indicates what kind of problem the your laptop is experiencing: here are the common ones:

0 beep = no power, loose card, short
1 short beep = normal,POST (Power On Self Test), your computer is ok
2 short beeps = POST error, review screen for error code.
continuous beeps = no power, loose card, short
repeating short beeps = no power, loose card, short
1 long, 1 short beeps = motherboard issue
1 long, 2 short beeps = video issue
1 long, 3 short beeps = video display circuitry
three long beeps = keyboard/keyboard card error
one beep, blank, incorrect display = video display circuitry

aside from the 1 short beeps, you need to take your laptop to a technician to have it looked at.

cheers mate!

One long beep and 2 short beeps


Depending upon your BIOS manufacturer, generally this POST error code means either a video card problem or a motherboard problem. If the RAM is OK then you have a motherboard problem, and this may not be cost effective to fix. Consider putting your money towards a new laptop, remove the hard disk and put it into an external USB adapter case and use it as an USB hard drive for backup etc.

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

2 short beeps at startup


Two beeps is an indication of a memory problem. Try re-seating the RAM, you may need to replace one or more of the memory modules.
Re-seating is the first thing to try.
Good luck with this.
