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.

Blank screen when on with 1 long beep and 3 short beep


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.

Good Luck =)

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.

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.

Installed more memory into Compaq V2000


The new ram you have installed, is it the same speed/type as what is already in the system?
Take out the new ram and leave the old in. Try and boot. If all ok, swap out the old ram for the new and see if you can boot. If the system does not boot when trying one of the above, you know it's bad ram. If the system boots with the old ram and the new ram installed seperately, i'ts likely that you have two different types of ram. Check your old ram and see what spec it is. Your new ram should be the same. Compaq do not list a four beep error on boot, but my guess is conflicting ram.

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

Blank screen, but desktop can be seen when a flashlight is pointed to it.


clean the ram? no,no, you have a bad inverter board this is common on all LCD screens, the inverter feeds hi-voltage to the lamps that show the display.

it could also be the back light itself wich is fed by the inverter


contact these guys for parts

hope this helps
thanks for your rating
