Try change the battery on the motherboard, then disconnect things like your hard drive and cdroms annd floppy drive because you might have a problem with one of them, also disconnect everything else except your screen and maybe keyboard then see, if this doesn't help try updating the bios

I am VERY confused by your description here. I can't tell if you're talking about the processor as it appears inside of your computer itself...or if you're refering to the processor as it appears in Windows.

Please try to be a little more specific with your explanation. Go step-by-step in what you are doing and what is happening.

My hp dv6000 won't boot up or show any display.

- Try cleaning the memory first, undetected memory leads to no display.
- Try using external monitor if displays shown up. If it has display then you have a Laptop LCD damage but if not then you have a video chip problem.
- damaged processor can also leads to no display.

Five long beeps at a range of five seconds then, repeats

Five long beeps for a modern motherboards indicates a processor failure. If you wish to remove the processor and re-seat it (reconnect it to see if it begins to work again) make sure to get some thermal compound to put between the CPU chip and the heatsink. More info at:

  • 2 - Parity error in base memory (first 64 KiB block)
  • 3 - Base memory read/write test error

  • 5 - Processor failure
  • 6 - 8042 Gate A20 test error (cannot switch to protected mode)
  • 7 - General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
  • 8 - Display memory error (system video adapter)

Dell vostro 400 2 beeps in bios post test


The cause of beeping is the memory problem. maybe the memory stick is not inserted correctly. If your memory stick will not correctly inserted it will damaged the memory slot. Try to use the other slot, if the same thing happen. You memory slot will be damaged you need to bring you motherboard to the computer repair center. Ask first how you will pay, if the labor cost is high. its better to buy a brand new motherboard.

My pc is giving continuous beep voice.

Probably some hardware defect. You could try removing unnecessary components. Of course, as a minimum, you need the CPU and memory. If you have more memory modules, you could try them one-by-one, if this is possible with the particular type you use. Please note, some motherboards / memory types require to use particular slots for particular configuration, to use modules in pairs, etc (please consult manual).
