Question about HP Computers & Internet
Black out with beeping sound
When a computer turns on it performs a POST (Power On Self Test) it check everything to see if everything is Kosher if so then it loads drivers then boots the OS (thanks to the BIOS) but if it come upon an error it immediately halts the POST and gives you a code...if it finds a problem after the drivers load (like the lake of an OS for example) then it would display the error rather that beep it...either way it wants to inform u of the error. based on ur situation the error was found prior to the loading of the drives. i recommend no doing anything and taking it to the geeks at geeksquad or someother PC service place (dont go to the flash attractive PC places however) hopefull the geeks at geeksquad will help you...

If its a multi Beep right after you turn it on, its a memory problem (more than likely). Turn it off flip laptop over, remove the panel covering up the memory slots. remove the memory, and reseat them back into the slots. replace cover, and boot the laptop. If that doesn't work, try only one stick at a time and see if it boots without beeping. If that fails, try replacing it with another stick of ram for that laptop.
But it would help if you could elaborate on your PC model and how many beeps?
