NO display.1 beep followed by 4 beeps.

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.

    The system still boot even only one memory in and blank the other one as long as the memory is not defective its still boot.



    Thats original setting of the laptop only one 256mb memory and further info below;




    • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows XP Home
    • PROCESSOR: Intel Pentium M 710 -- 1.4 GHz
    • SCREEN: 14.0" WXGA Widescreen (not the BrightView)
    • MEMORY: 256 MB SDRAM (1x256)

What is wrong when my compaq v2000 beeps 2 times loud when I turn it on but no boot


Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
Compaq v2000
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.

hi, there could be a hardware conflict, can you please reset your bios settings to defaults?

1. reboot your laptop
2. press "F2" - you should see a BIOS menu
3. Look for a keyword "reset to defaults"
4. Save and exit.

No display at all


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.

2 beeps & nothing on the screen


Hi Tom,

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.

keep me posted.

regards,

Jeff

4 beeps and blank screen


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.
