    Yep same problem, did anyone get a solution, I think its the system board

  • Tech-ie Oct 10, 2008

    I have the same proble. It is to do with the graphics card frying the motherboard and altough it seems to be a major fault in the DV 2000 range HP refuse to fix it as my machine is 15 months old. They said there are only certain models within the range that they are willing to fix and this is not one of them. So I am left with the choice of paying €400-€500 for a new motherboard or buying a new machine...

    Should have got a Tosh in the first place, they are much better

    HP are aware that many of the range of DV2000 are being ruined this way, some they admit to having nvidia fault that causes it and will replace for free but although my DV2175 has the same issue its not on their list so they will not take responsibility. This is my third HP laptop, I have always used them, even recommended them. But after this I will avoid. They have cost me £700 and now I have a usless laptop they want another £300 to fix!!!! HP ****.

The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self Test). For whatever reason, HP does not do a great job telling us exactly what their POST beep codes mean. The only thing I could find was that the 1 long, 2 short beeps on the AWARD BIOS systems means a failed video adapter. I think there is a good chance this is your problem. You will most likely have to contact HP to get it repaired.

This currently works - no idea why!

Turn the machine on and let the beeps do there thing.

Leave the machine on for 1/2 hour to get hot.

Press and hold the power button to turn the machine off, then turn straight back on.

HP DV9000 blank screen 1 long and 2 short beeps at start up


This is a indicator of motherboard failure, first! remove one stick of ram memory and try again, if no! remove second piece and put back the first and power up, if no result! the motherboard has major issues and will need to be replaced, or new laptop.

Laptop Beeps on start up 1 long and two short beeps


You've checked the memory board/card, but have you tried using another memory card? The 1 long followed by 2 short beeps indicates that there's a problem with the memory card. Try to remove the memory card, then wipe the gold traces with a dry cloth and put it back in.

If you try replacing the memory card but you get the same problem, then proceed with the video card.

One long beep and 2 short beeps


Depending upon your BIOS manufacturer, generally this POST error code means either a video card problem or a motherboard problem. If the RAM is OK then you have a motherboard problem, and this may not be cost effective to fix. Consider putting your money towards a new laptop, remove the hard disk and put it into an external USB adapter case and use it as an USB hard drive for backup etc.

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.

Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time


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.
