Hi guys. My presario v2000,when i power it up, i get 1 beep,then 4 more beeps and no display. The power light is on and the cooling fan goes on too,but i try to mess with the keyboard to see if the CAPS LOCK light goes on and it doesnt. the only thing it'll do is power up and te power light stays on.I dont see the hard drive light go on at all,but i hear it going. I took out the ram and hard drive and cleaned the both and replaced them and still same thing. Any ideas? Please help.

Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
1 short with 1 long beep = bad bios. Must reload bios from disc.
2 short beeps = general bios failure
for more - do a google search for "v2000 Beep Codes" and go to the link for "bioscentral" - all are listed.
Start your pc when you get to the screen that shows in the top right corner F2 & F12 at this time press F8. At this point you can either scroll down to and click on " Last Good Configuration" this should the problem.
gcmichaud: Take out the RAM and turn on the computer. It should freak out. If not, your motherboard has gone. The good news: your data is safe. If it does beep like crazy, turn the computer off, remove the battery AND ac, reinstall the RAM and hold the power button down continuously for a good, slow count of thirty. Plug in the AC and try again. Let me know if you have any other questions/problems. I'll monitor this thread.
jslo: It sounds like your power supply died. It's a pretty common problem. Can you get a friend to lend you their power supply? If so, hook it up and see if everything works. My bet is yes.
Please verify the capacity and how many memory modules you have in the system?
If your system won't turn on and get 2 beeping sounds. It is an issue with your memory (RAM) you may need to reseat the memory card. After reseating the memory card (RAM) and the issue persist and i suggest to check also the warranty of your system from your coomputer manufacturer for part replacement.
It's either going to be a video memory error or base memory error. Either one requires replacing the motherboard, which more than likely wouldn't be worth the money. You should probably get your data backed up and buy a new computer.
