Sounds like you may have either bad memory or even just dirty memory, try removing the mem modules, lightly clean the contacts with a pencil eraser and then try rebooting, If you at least are recieving the initial beep then you at least dont have to worry that it is the processor.

You can try using the fn key and the screen key, looks like a square inside a square if i am not mistaken. I am thinking u set the laptop to display on an external monitor only. To check this u could also hook it up to a monitor.

My HP Pavilion dv3 won't wake up.

The HP DV series or laptop are known to suffer from GPU faults and issues. The syptoms you describe indicate such a fault. To help isolate the fault you will need to try plugging the laptop into an external screen when it is powered off, Power the laptop up and if the GPU is healthy it should display fine on the external screen leaving us free to look at other issues. If it does not it likely your GPU is at fault. If this is the case you would either need to undertake re-ball/reflow repair on the GPU, which is best done by you local repair shop unless you have the tools/skills to perform such tasks. Alternatively replacing the mainboard in the laptop could be an option.

Let me know if you try an external monitor. If it does display I will try to guide you through testing for other faults and issues.

Hi. I have a HP Compaq 6820S, Intel Pentium T7250, 2 Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, i have a problem, Laptop won't charge battery. I let the laptop in sleep mode, around 7 days, when i come back, battery was 0%,...

try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
and more.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.

When i turn on my laptop toshiba m305 i heard 3 bip and all the light turn on but my screen is black simetimes when i don't heard the beeps the laptop turn on like nothing wrong and i work properly


You have a problem with system memory. This can be caused by dust or just basically the memory is not seated correctly.

Check and make sure the memory is seated correctly by turning the laptop off, remove the battery and the power cord and then turn the laptop upsude down. You should see a couple of panels that will unscrew. Unscrew these panels and look for a module like this >>>>>> There could be 2 of these.

Take them out and clean the contacts and the slots and then re-seat them/it.
Replace all the covers etc and see if the laptop boots up normally. If you still get an intermitent problem you maybe looking at replacements modules.

Hp nc4200 won`t start

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Pc has power but nothing shows on screen. motherboard doesnt beep once like it used to when turned on but green light is on indicating its ok.


Remove the ram and check, is the motherboard beeps or not..

it should beep as long beeps....and should continue beeping after serveral times until u switch off it...
then reconnect the ram after swiching off power...

remove the data cables of hdd and cd/dvd and then try to switch it on...
if it works fine then reconnect it properly...

Fault can be in Ram or data cables perhaps...


hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

My hp laptop turns on but nothing is on the screen

It sometimes happens when u use sleep or hibernate on computer using Vista that it doesn't start properly. You would have to use sleep regularly tho. In your case i'm not sure. Sometimes computer randomly manages to run properly and other days it just won't start even after many tries. Just repeat process of turning it on until it starts properly. If it does it's probably the case of what i mentioned... if it doesn't problem might be somewhere else ( maybe your power cord is damaged and your battery too? ) i had friend with the same problem and it kept getting worse. They had to change motherboard or power source for her i'm afraid. Hardware change is definitely required i guess. Good luck
