A single short beep usually means it got through POST (power on self test) correctly which means the screen itself is probably bad since the computer did not see any hardware issues.

That is telling you there is a hardware problem, you will need to contact the manufacturer to see about a repair (it may still be under warranty), or a local computer repair shop.

When I start up my Fujitsu Amilo Si1520, the fan starts working and nothing else happens -- screen remains blank.


Do you hear any kind of beep?
If yes, there is something wrong with your graphic adapter. If there is no beep, your MB is most probably dead

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.

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.

Hp computer beeps and blank screen what cud be the


Check to make sure the new memory and processor is seated in the slot correctly. If either is not inserted fully it will cause the PC to beep and blank screen as your is doing. If that doesn't fix it your memory could be the wrong type or to large for the PC to recognize. JQ

Blank screen long beep 2 short beeps at startup.


The 1 long 2 short beep code means a problem in the video circuitry and the laptop can't initialize the display. This is usually caused by failure of the integrated video chipset. Unfortunately, on a laptop you can't just open the case and install a new video card like you can on a desktop. You need to replace the mainboard. Replacements are available online. Here is one source found by a Google search. (I'm just using this as an example. I haven't dealt with this site.)

The 4 beep code means no memory detected when the computer started up. No surprise there since you had taken it out.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

BEEP ON START UP ,BLANK SCREEN


3 long beeps normally indicate defective memory or loose memory on DIMM so take out and insert it again or you need to replace with new memory module. Where as fast beeping indicates Graphics error and need to change the graphic card

If this dont fix please tell me
Best Luck!

Computer beeps and screen is blank


The computer beeps when some components are missing. Check all the connections.

Please try to press F8 at the boot, and choose Safe mode. You will see then if it is the hard drive the problem.

If you have more information after the T180 for the model number, can you indicate it please. You might have to update the BIOS.
