Hi,

I could well be wrong, but my gut feeling is that your laptop is having memory issues. Start by accessing the memory and (carefully) removing it from its seating. Give it a quick check for dirt / dust etc and then re-seat it. If you have multiple memory modules, try swapping them round. Replace all covers and then restart the computer. Hopefully it's as simple as that. If not, you may need new memory, or alternatively the beep codes for your laptop refer to something different.

If you can get some Compaq support online, check that out for a dagnosis of the beep codes. That might point you in the right direction, assuming the above attempted solution is of no use.

I'd try messing with the memory. Try booting one single stick in each of the slots.

I hope it's under warranty!

Try taking the battery out and starting it without the battery. If this doesn't work, contact Compaq (HP) immediately and take advantage of your warranty.
