Your ram strips need reseating. Pop them out and then refit firmly. If this is not enough, one of them is faulty.

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

No boot - short beep, long beep (it is not a memory problem)


When your computer boots up, the Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) performs an all-systems Power On Self-Test (POST).
The POST tests your computer's most important components, including the motherboard itself, the system's memory and the video card.
If the computer deviates from its standard beep, it may indicate a very serious problem with your computer, or it may simply indicate that you need to replace a system fan or a memory stick. BIOS beep codes vary according to manufacturer.

Start your computer.
Pay attention to the number of beeps and the length of the beeps.
There are short and long beeps.
Write down your observations.
Write down the BIOS type if this information is on your screen.
Consult your computer documentation if you don't know what type of motherboard you have.
Visit your computer manufacturer's support website for your computer model if you purchased a pre-built machine.


Look up your BIOS manufacturer (AMI, Award and Phoenix, for example) at a BIOS beep code website such as 5StarSupport, PC Hell or PC Guide (see Below).
Match the your computer's beep code with the beep code listing for your BIOS manufacturer.

PC will not boot up. Almost did once but screen went black. Reboot doesn't help. No green light on monitor and PC makes a long slow beep over and over. I have recovery discs but when put it nothing...


Based on your description of your problem, my educated guess is that you have a problem with the system board or motherboard. Checking Compaq support site, it says that beeps are generally heard when a hardware device is not connected properly or has failed.

First thing to try is disconnect the keybaord and mouse and try to start the computer again. What we are trying to do is find out which hardware device might be involved. So start with the keyboard an mouse. If the computer still does not start, remove any periferal drives, like floppy or cd drives.

There are several beep codes, below are a few examples listed:

Beep codes common to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers. Use these codes first before referring to the other code lists. NOTE: Not all codes are shown. Beeps Description 1 short beep and 1 long beep Memory problem 2 short beeps and 1 long beep (repeats 5 times) Unable to initialize video or video card required but not installed 3 short beeps and 1 long beep CPU configuration error or CPU type is not compatible The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers that can occur while restoring, flashing or updating the BIOS : Beeps Description 1 short beep Legacy floppy drive or CD/DVD drive not detected 2 short beeps Floppy diskette or compact disc not detected 3 short beeps Unable to start flashing (such as when missing a utility or BIOS image) 4 short beeps Flashing failed (checksum error, corrupted image, etc.) 5 short beeps BIOS recovery successful Try working on this solution and see if you can get the computer to start. Below is a link to a troubleshooting page from Compaq for your computer. This can be a good reference as well.

HP Pavilion ze2308wm laptop won't boot up


It could be the memory modules (RAM). Get the information from those RAM sticks (manufacturer) and replace them with new ones to see if that solves the issue, if not then maybe the hard drive, and if it's neither of those, I hate to say it, but it sounds like a bad motherboard :(

HP Pavillion ZD8000 display problem


Before you invest any further, try the lcd inverter http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/01/31/replace-screen-inverter-fix-backlight/ I have seen them for real cheap. If you take off your bezel cover underneath the display you'll find the inverter9147480.jpg or if necessary you can get a tech to help install. Usually theres a series of beeps when you get a blank screen. Hp pavilion laptops also get hot on the keyboard after a while from long term use and zd 8000 came out about 4 years ago so the display should be a pretty good looking glossy screen. Those are nice laptops to work with by the way.

I have a HP Pavillion DV 2000 laptop with me. When i boot my system it gives 1 long beep followed by two short beeps and the system doesnt boot. I am not sure as what to do. Can someone help me here?


This website:
http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

Lists standard beep codes for computers. The one long, followed by two short beeps indicates a display problem according to the site.

I have heard other people say that the same beep codes specify a RAM problem.

Have you recently installed any new RAM or a new graphics card, or made changes to either.

It seems likely to be the graphics card because of the missing info on the screen. Usually when RAM is bad there is something on the screen.
