Re: Beeping noise and blank screen

The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self-Test). Here's a link to the Lenovo site that might help you interpret the beeps you're hearing:

Good luck.

Hp pavilion dv1000: When I turn it on, it does not boot up and I get a blank screen. I have tried hard reset by taking out the battery and holding the power button for 30 seconds, and then turning it back...


I just want to know if you see any power indicator on the machine? If you see any power indicator try to check if you hear any sound that it boots up to windows or try to check if there are any beeping sounds when you turn on the machine. If you hear the windows boot up sound try to use external monitor and see if the machine gives any display. If you hear consecutive beeping sound it means there are hardware that's faulty inside the machine.

Power on screen blank.. fan on

Did you hear a sound beeping. If you can hear a sound beeping it is a RAM problem. But if there is no sound beeping that is a processor problem. You can disassemble or remove the processor and clean make sure that the processor fan is spinning so that it will control the temperature of the CPU to avoid overheating.

Blank screen with beeping sound

when a computer turns on it performs a POST (Power On Self Test) it check everything to see if everything is Kosher if so then it loads drivers then boots the OS (thanks to the BIOS) but if it come upon an error it immediately halts the POST and gives you a code...if it finds a problem after the drivers load (like the lake of an OS for example) then it would display the error rather that beep it...either way it wants to inform u of the error. based on ur situation the error was found prior to the loading of the drives. i recommend no doing anything and taking it to the geeks at geeksquad or someother PC service place (dont go to the flash attractive PC places however) hopefull the geeks at geeksquad will help you...

Beeping Sound While Booting

could you check that the time is correct when you next boot up, as sometimes a beep on startup can indicate a cmos problem, as you may have a flat cmos battery on the motherboard, and the system will keep losing the saved settings.
