A6230N , my guess you mean the main mobo beeps , not display.
so...
those beeps are from BIOS, those are beep codes,
HP does not make it easy to learn them, so many BIOS makers
they only generalize now. it can be 12 years old this MOBO.
does it beep with all usb cables removed (kbd./mouse/etc)
the mobo is M2N68-LA (by ASUS a top maker) AMI bios fitted. I SEE
there can be many codes used. some are over 20.

but top codes are,
bad CPU, bad RAM (try 1 at a time), bad power From PSU, CMOS scrambled due to bad CMOS COIN Cell battery, non last this long, so.... get a new COIN CELL.

the codes, all mean Catastrophic errors.(POST errors)
power on, self test. errors, and are serious.

The BIOS can be reset with jump clips inside, hp books at hp on line explain all that. read that yet, ask them yet>
the page is here.
AMI bios , 7 = flash EEPROM issues, or coin cell bad.
you didnt make the error of trying to flash the BIOS did you.
the 7 beeps , just happened all like magic? right?
did you add an upgraded video car to this PC?
the stock PC has an on board integrated Gforce chip.

id try removing all expansion cards first, VGA, NIC< what ever some added to it,the PCI slots,
power off,
pull line cord
the push the power button. (it will do funny discharge dance,)
this discharges bus power inside the PC.
then pull those cards, seen , try one ram at a time.

look for CPU heat sink fell off or dad fan, there.
un plug HDD, and CD drive cables. to see if they are shorted out. causing beeps.

put in a new coin cell now, I bet its no good NOW.
then reset the BIOS per the HP manual.


it's all here.

Laptop beeps 7 times


Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.
Dell Inspiron M501R (M5010) Beep Codes # of Beeps Description Possible Cause(s) 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure, covers BIOS corruption or ROM errors. 2 No Memory (RAM) detected Memory or Memory slot failure 3

  • Super I/O chip failure
  • Keyboard controller test failure
System board failure 4 Memory read / write failure Memory failure 5 Real Time Clock (RTC) power fail CMOS battery failure 6 Video BIOS test failure Video subsystem failure 7 CPU Cache test failure Processor failure or motherboard failure 8 LCD LCD failure Most Common Fixes:

No s-video input signal


Make sure you're on the correct input selection, press the source button a few times.

Make sure that the CABLE is not faulty, and connected properly at both ends.

Failing that, the monitor is probably not functioning correctly. That's a 7 year old monitor you have.

Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.



Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Beeps when turned on monitor says no signal and fans do run


How many times does it beep? If it beeps seven or so times, it's your video card. If it only beeps once or twice, can't remember for sure, it's memory problem.

I have a blank screen on my HPf1905 monitor. I have a HPm7330n computer. How do I know if its the monitor or the video card? Monitor shows a message no input signal,then goes to sleep mode.


if the message you recieve is no input signal if only means that you have a problem with your video card, the monitor is fine but you need to have your video card check

No beep


What indication do you have that the system is on?
Do you have any LEDs active on the front of the system box?

Also, your monitor should indicate whether you are receiving video sync signals from the system by changing LEDs or the color of one and possibly give you an on-screen notice that it is or isn't getting input.

If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the system box, most monitors will post a small notice on the screen that it is working but not getting any input.
