Hie? The good thing about yor prob is it telling where the fault lies. Well,if u are familiar with beep codes i ges u probably know that a single beep during booting means that "all systems are clear" and in yor case 6 beeps might mean that yor rams are out coz the pc will not display anything if it cant find system memory,check out all pci cards if they are workng. U can download a manual for yor motherboard check beep codes diagonistics or use a POST card to determine the prob. Rep if this hels..

Tip

If your computer has a black screen and not booting to desktop


Normally if the computer has the black display then follow these steps:
1) disconnect the pwr cord form the back of the computer //
2) disconnect the printer and the internet cord//
3)hold the pwr button for 1 min and then release// this is called "pwr drain" when the pwr cord is disconnected//
4)connect the pwr cord and restart the computer and see if it boots or not.
5)if not then disconnect the pwr cord again and open the side pannel of the computer//
6)on the mother board you will find the RAM (MEMORY CARD) which will be approx 6 inch long", take out the card/s and plug the pwr cord and restart the computer//
7) if you get the beep sound then the mother board is ok and if you do not get the beep sound then the problem could be mother board//
8)if getting the beep sound then fix the RAM CARD properly and restsrt the computer// it shoul boot//
note** during all this process make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out when you put your hand inside the computer or else you can get power shock..

The computer did not boot the bios


Is there any basic display on the screen. If yes then press F8 to run the system in safe or normal mode. If there is no display then check the system with respect to beep sound as the beep sound with a sequence shows the problem. Is it so?

best of luck!

Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


Instructions
  1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
  2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

    Or

    The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

    Or

    A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

    If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
  3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
  4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
  5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

    The Windows logo displays during this step.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

    An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

    Or

    A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

    The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.
