Hmmm...that's not good. works fine with no battery. I suspect your motherboard may be taking a vacation from working soon.

got backup for your HP?

5 beeps


Hi this sounds like a memory/ram issue you need to power of your machine, remove the power cable & then without the power cable connected, press & hold the power button for 15 seconds until it makes a chime noise, that is a basic power function reset, if that does not solve it, remove the memory cover panel on the under side of your laptop then carefully remove the memory chips blow or vacuum the area & use a dry piece of tissue to very gently clean your memory of any dust, replace the ram chips & re-connect power cord, this should solve it, but if not try starting up again without the power cord, if it's successful without the power cord you'll need a new 1, if not it suggests your ram chips have gone bad & you may need to purchase new ram chips, good luck :-) you can find more info about the 5 beeps here: Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code

if you need to purchase new memory/ram chips you can get cheap ram here: Cheap Laptop Memory RAM Upgrade Low Prices UK Deals Ebuyer com

If you do need to buy new ram chips, I'd advise buying 2x 4GB modules :-)

My computer freezes randomly


Hi Petter,

Does the system freeze when you start the computer.
It could be a program that is causing the system to freeze.

1. You Could disable a few startup items like messanger by going to
Start->run->msconfig and click on startup items and disable all and check if the system's performance is better.

Please refer the following MS article if you need clarification
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796


2. If this does not solve your issue, uninstall unused programs in your add/remove programs.

3. Perform a disk cleanup following the steps in the below article.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310312

This should help you fix the issue, if you still have problems feel free to post.

When i boot up my computer it beeps like 25 times and then it freezes it tries to boot windows


What brand the laptop is?
How many beeps are short and long and in what sequence?
Do you receive any error?
When the computer starts it checks its hardware and proceeds to boot the OS (windows). If it finds a hardware fault it will beep a code and stop there. The beep code may depend on the fault itself (video, memory, etc) and BIOS brand (Phoenix, American Megatrends, etc). You can try entering the BIOS by holding the or keys as soon as you turn it on for about 5 secs while it shows the first logo on screen. Then in BIOS you can see whats the brand of the BIOS is and with that info search for the beeping codes for that BIOS brand. That will say what kind of fault the unit is having. I hope this works. Im new in this FixYa so I dont know if you can reply me with the answers.

Im loked off my acer labtop it wont trun on when i puth the power button


You will want to first verify that the laptop is receiving power. Try starting up the machine with a friend's power supply that is rated for your computer.

Power supplies in laptops tend to have a useful life of about two years.

I havnt used my dv8000 in over a year because i purchased another laptop, however im trying to sell it but i cannot remember the power on password, is there anyway to override or bypass it?


Start the laptop holding down the f11 key till you hear a beep.

Then the system restore dialogue box comes up which allows you reset the system to the factory setting as if it was brand new.

Good luck.

Remember to rate this.

Computer freezes on boot up


make sure the mouse and keyboard are in right connections...if you look closely youll see icons next to ports.
try without mouse at first start up ,load windows and use key with windows logo on it to access start and scroll to shutdown tab and restart...plug in the mouse before restart.
if logo tab isnt assigned press ctrl + esc to access start menu.
