Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I bought my sister a laptop about a year ago and when she went to bed the other night she put it on sleep mode. Now when she tries to turn it back on the screen will not come on and it makes this beeping noise when she tries to turn the laptop on? Can anyone help?
Try removing the laptops battery for 1 minute & putting it back in. That should fix the issue.

The battery may be too low. Try leaving it connected to the charger for awhile. If it doesn't recover, remove the battery and try to turn on the computer with the power cord connected. If it works, the battery is probably defective. If it doesn't work, the power adapter could be bad...or the computer has another problem such as a failing display or hard drive.

*Has your Laptop failed?
*Out of Warranty and discovered you don't qualify for an Extended Warranty?
*Stone-walled by a Support Case Manager?
*Fed up getting fobbed off by HP? If your answer is 'YES' to any of the above try turning up the heat by e-mailing HP's chairman http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/execteam/email/hurd/index.html The following is an excerpt from an article written for TG Daily by Wolfgang Gruener : The failures are caused by a solder bump that connects the I/O termination of the silicon chip to the pad on the substrate. In Nvidia’s GPUs, this solder bump is created using high-lead. A thermal mismatch between the chip and the substrate has substantially grown in recent chip generations, apparently leading to fatigue cracking. Add into the equation a growing chip size (double the chip dimension, quadruple the stress on the bump) as well as generally hotter chips and you may have the perfect storm to take high lead beyond its limits. Apparently, problems arise at what Nvidia claims to be “extreme temperatures” and what we hear may be temperatures not too much above 70 degrees Celsius.
If you are a UK consumer and are having problems with your HP Laptop take it back to the store you bought it from (your contract is with the seller) and demand a refund under the Sale of Goods Act 1979. Don’t worry if it’s out of Warranty you have upto 6 years to raise the issue under this Act although you may have to prove the goods were not of ’satisfactory quality’ and the fault was inherent. Do an internet search to find numerous examples of HP laptop failures and check out HP’s own user forums to support your claim.The DV6000 series in particular seems prone to failure and HP offered an Extended Warranty service to some but not all consumers whose laptops showed symptoms such as losing wireless access, failure to boot up, blank screens etc. It would appear that eventually the motherboard needs to be replaced due to an alleged overheating graphics card, cheap solder and poor cooling. If the seller refuses to take action report them to your Local trading Standards department and raise a claim in either the County Courts (or in Scotland the Small Claims Court). For non UK consumers check out any consumer protection laws that may apply in your country. http://www.berr.gov.uk/whatwedo/consumers/fact-sheets/page38311.html#Q2DoIonlyhaverightsfor30orsomeotherfiguredaysafterpurchase

I had the same problem, it kept on beeping when I switched the lapton. Accidently i pressed the F9 button and it give me two options.
1st opt: boot from CD
2nd opt: boot from hard drive.
I chose the second option and it was fine. I immediately I ran the anti virus.
If you are not prompted with the two options after pressing F9 then go to bios setting and do it from there.
Hope that works for every one.

None of the above answers are close to the problem...
the number of beeps and length of each beep can tell you what the problem is related to
this may help:
