Help! I'm trying to diagnose the problem with my laptop. It's an HP G60-127NR Notebook PC. It just beeps 4 times when I try and start it up. Can anyone help me find the beep codes for this HP? It was purchased 12/08.

4 beeps is a graphics controller failure. Try a hard reset. Unplug all peripherals (USB, monitors, etc). Then unplug the charger and remove the battery. Press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds. Reconnect the AC power (but do not insert the battery) and press the power button. Check if the glowing LEDs (near the Caps Lock and Num Lock lights) appears and listen for sounds of hard drive activity and the fan turning on.

Next listen for the beep code again. (For example 3 beeps is a bad memory module. Sometimes, removing all the memory and reseating them one at a time will solve this. You add one module, reboot then try the other stick after removing the first if the beep code repeats.)

Since the laptop has the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M onboard video controller, if the 4 beeps error continues, you probably need to replace the motherboard.

For more beep codes, see .

I hope this helps.

Laptop Beeps on start up 1 long and two short beeps

You've checked the memory board/card, but have you tried using another memory card? The 1 long followed by 2 short beeps indicates that there's a problem with the memory card. Try to remove the memory card, then wipe the gold traces with a dry cloth and put it back in.

If you try replacing the memory card but you get the same problem, then proceed with the video card.

HP laptop makes beeping sound but does not start

Beeps are usually related to memory problems.

Try reseating the memory and also trying removing / switching the memory modules. Try booting just one at a time.

Let me know what happens.

Hp computer will start, all the lights come on but the screen is black.. also.. it makes this loud beeping noise 4 times?? whats wrong?

The beep is more than likely a beep code (sounds stupid and obvious, but they're there for a reason).

What make/model is your machine? We can look up the code by make/model. That will diagnose your problem.
