Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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

I've had many problems with this computer and now there are 3 different things happening when I try to turn the computer on.

#1 - Screen stays blank with all running lights on and beeps 3 times. One long beep and two short ones.

#2 - HP logo and such will show up but it will reset just before loading windows and then the computer will restart with a blank screen a few times.

#3 - Screen stays blank with all the keyboard lights on and just resets a whole bunch of times. You can hear everything starting up, the disk drive and the fan and so forth but it just resets over and over.

The weirdest thing is, is that the computer will start up perfectly sometimes without any problem what so ever. I've seen about 60 different things people think is wrong with it but everyone only has one of the problems I have and not three.

Sounds like you have a lot of spyware and malware. Anti-spyware software (such as SpyBot) and antimalware software 9such as Malwarebytes) may not ultimately help, but it's worth a try. I really think that you will need to completely reinstall Windows. Use the CD that came with your system, as it has all your drivers. Let us know if you need help to reinstall. Good luck.

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

Turn off the computer. Hold the Fn key and power key to boot the computer in diagnostic mode. Follow the onscreen instructions to see if you have any hardware issues. This sounds like bad sectors on the OS boot partition.

unscrew the back cover of the monitor then remove to access the power supply board, look for a leak or blown up electrolytic capacitor. just replace with the same rating and value a panasonic brand of capacitor much better with low esr.

Blank screen


You probably got yourself a bad backlight or better yet a bad inverter board inside. A lot of experts found if you open this thing up and See any puffed up capacitors replace them as that could also cause this issue. But viewsonics had a issue with a bad capacitor on the power supply board.

I sure hope this information is Very Helpful to you!

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:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01732674&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1842155 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.
