Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook

Machine BEEPS four times and will not boot up

When I hit the power button on the machine, the motherboard beeps four times, the fan cuts on and the power light remains on; but, the screen remains black and that's all.

Tried to remove the memory and reset and also done that with the battery. Tried to then boot with battery and without. When I changed the memory from slot 1 to 2 the motherboard beeped 1 time, 3 times, 2 times and it had the same result.

I was trying to locate a book for the motherboard to explain with the beeps are but cannot locate one anywhere. Do I need another motherboard or is there something else I can try?

Thanks

    Went to purchase another memory stick for the laptop and it booted right up. The previous memory stick was faulty. The system came right up.



    Thanks for this resolution!

Xerox 4595 canot boot . power save button blinks


Count the blinks and the pattern of the blinks. Blinks and Beeps tells the technician what is going on with the laptop.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove thePower Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold thepower button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in(leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. Ifit does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Hi I am working on a abit A 17 mother board it was taken apart by my nephew. I think I have every thing back togather, but when I turn it on it beeps and shows code 92,well I think thats what the l e d box...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

CANT BOOT . ONLY PROCESSOR FAN MOVING. I AM H/W


Disassemble the machine completely and clean the Heatsink fan, blow away the dusts from the motherboard, if possible use brush to wipe away all the dusts. Reassemble it, but don't connect or install anything on the motherboard except the the power supply, the cpu with the heatsink and the system speaker. Now plug in the mouse, keyboard and the monitor (please connect the monitor on the integrated VGA port on the motherboard). Plug in the power chord on the back and short the two terminals of the power switch pins on the motherboard's Front Panel connectors, i.e PWR and GND with a screwdriver or with any metallic object you think is suitable (shown below):

Remember to switch on the mains switch (wall outlet connected to the power supply) and make sure both the power connectors on the mother is connected, i.e. 20 pins and 4 pins.
Check the status on the monitor and listen the beep codes (the system speaker is compulsory for this diagnosis). If you see anything on the display or if you could hear the beeps, note the beep sequence (let me know if it's not 2 beeps or 3 beeps, if it's 2 or 3 beeps, the proceed forward), Switch off the machine and install one memory stick (Ram) and reboot. If it was 2 or 3 beeps, then you should no longer hear them, if you still hear the same beeps, then try with another Ram on another SIM bank(s) [Ram slot] after the machine is put Off and boot again.

If you don't hear anything or you don't see anything on the monitor, then your motherboard is bad or perhaps the integrated video card is dead or it could be the BIOS chip itself. I would suggest you to replace it, as it's not worth repair. Buying a new one will cost you less then repairing this motherboard under such circumstances.

If you see or the beeps continues, try with another working Ram, it should definitely work if the Memory module on the motherboard is still working, otherwise.. I would again recommend you to replace it.

Well, in case if it's successfully booted or the display is ok, then proceed forward by installing the component one by one and reboot everytime you install a component or plug in connector (s). You'll be able to find out the culprit, whether the hdd, or the Dvd/Cd drive or the front panel switches or others.... Will need to replace or will need to repair.

Please update so that I will be able to assist you further.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Emachine Will not boot


different beeping patterns are codes which indicate what part of the hardware has failed (ram, video card, cpu, ect). the fan failure would not cause beeps, and would not cause the cpu to fail unless already in windows. if you could find out the manufacturer of your motherboard you could check with them about what the paticular pattern of beeps which you are getting mean.
