Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop
Power runs trough my monitor and cpu, but my monitors shows nothing and my cpu makes a long beeping sound after a few seconds.
1 long beep is usually graphics card..
try booting to external monitor... connect your laptop using the serial port or by S-Video cable to a desktop monitor or similar..., then press FUNCTION and F5 to switch to the external monitor, if the laptops Screen is viewable on the external source.... then it is a bad video card...

It's definitly a memory issue. What you might wanna do, is open your CPU and take out the memory sticks from the memory slots. After this, try either blowing or vacumming (if you have one of em small PC vacumm cleaners) the slots whcih contained the memory sticks. Also, dont forget to blow off any dirt that might be on the memory stick(s) itself.
After this, just insert the memory stick(s) back into it's slot(s) and try to rebppt your computer again. Most of the time it should work. However, if you still face this issue, then it means that your memory itself is corrupt and you might need to buy a similar capacity memory altogether.
As a side note, if your computer comes from a manufacturer like dell or acer, you might wanna get them to look into the issue if it;s still under warranty (or even if it's not). Certain "branded" computers have their own way of functioning. Hope this helped.
