Question about HP ECS ACER 946GZT-AM V1.0 SOCKET- LGA775 SATA2 INTEL MOTHERBOARD
Continuous beep on boot-up with no display. Power is getting to the motherboard as CPU cooler fan is working. Tried various sticks of RAM to no avail. Re-set BIOS jumper, no change.
Check the battery for the mother board memory. flat battery can make it no startup. also if that is fine remover the hard drive lead and turn on if it comes on then the hard drive is causing the fault. do same with rom's.

It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).
Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).
If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.
Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.

SOURCE: pavilion dv2125nr won't boot
it could be dead mobo, it's actually the most probable cause of your problem, but there is this thing i've encountered with HP several times already. i know it's a long shot, but i'd like you to try and boot the laptop up after you've removed the DVD-drive. if this works, it's the DVD-drive that's broken, if not, it'll be the mobo...

1st check if the voltage from the plug has correct groung , neutral phase set .then
try a new smps , with minimum 400W output.
before connecting the same.
please remove all the parts out of the cabinet please connect only motherboard and smps and check its getting switched on , if not then your board is burnt you will have to replace it , if there is power indication then connect the RAM and check , if its also fine then connect the rest and try.
all this u have tried and no use , please post me a msg with full detail of your PC configuration , I can try a resolution

Beeps like this can eminate from the memory modules, you need to check each module is seated correctly. TURN off the unit and pull the power lead out. open access to the memory modules and simply removed ach one completely then reseat it back gently, never force these things.
Do it to all modules. Hopefully this is all that is the issue. failing this you may have a faulty module so try without one or the other or all to see what happens.
Check visibly for othere clipped in units for the secure seating status. There is an error on the board that has developed and needs to be found by a process of elimination.
