I have a quanta 3082 MB in a HP Pavilion zd8230us laptop when I startup it beeps constantly got any ideas? anyone


The beeps with have a pattern to them. Listen closely when you first turn the laptop on and listen for the pattern. It might be something like 1-3-2 (1 beep, wait, 3 beeps in a row, wait, 2 beeps) It will repeat for listen for a bit to make sure you have the correct pattern. Once you have that pattern got to the HP webpage, in the support section, in the search type in "beep code errors". It will give you a list of beep patterns and tell you what the problem is. It could be the RAM, it could be another problem with the motherboard; those codes are what you need to have first.

I leaned my weight on the left side of my Inspiron 1525 by accident and this caused my computer to emit one long beep followed by a short beep continually. My laptop got the Blue Screen of Death with the...


The left hand side of the laptop houses the hard drive, the PXE-E1 media test failure is the laptop looking for another (network) boot device.

In short, you have probably damaged the hard drivem, which is why it is looking for another boot device

Remove the hard drive, check that the SATA connector pins are not damaged, if they are ok, then most likely there is no damage to the SATA connectors on the motherboard.

Test the hard drive on another computer ( as a slave) and see if it is recognised and can be read.
Listen for any knocking or clicking sounds, thay will tell you that the drive is damaged and needs replacing

My laptop froze. Nothing that I press on it gives a response.


The first step that should be taken is to shut down the laptop. This can most likely be done by holding the power butting down for 10-15 seconds. The next step is to restart the PC and see what happens. If it boots up correctly than this have have been just a one time issue. If after restarting the laptop it will not boot than some trouble shooting steps should be taken. When starting the PC your getting power? If not than there is an issue with the power supply or battery. If you are getting power to the PC than you should listen for the beep code on start up. 1 beep after starting the computer signifys that the power on self test (Also known as the POST) has completed with out issue. When getting any other type of beep code you should research the meaning of the code. Beep codes differ from company to company. The best way to identify the meaning of a beep code is to type the manufacture, model and number of beeps into Google. Another possible issue is that your hard drive is corrupt. If this is the case than your computer will pass the power on self test(POST) but will have a message like MBR not found or one of many other errors. If you are getting an error than it is also a good idea to research the error to determine the proper fix. If the PC seems to boot correctly but there is no image on the screen than the issue may be a result of a bad video card. In that case the video card will need to be replaced.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

System not booting


Try power cycling the laptop by taking the battery out and pressing the power button 10 times. On the 10th time, hold it down for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and attempt to boot the laptop.

If that doesn't work, listen for a cooling fan when you attempt to boot the laptop. If you don't hear the fan, it's likely that the motherboard is malfunctioning somewhere.

Do you hear any beep codes when you try to turn it on? Here is a list of beep codes for reference:

No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating
Hope this helps! Good luck!

Acer 1670 laptop will not boot in to bios


If what has happened is true, then the previous owner had killed the BIOS. He has tried to FLASH the BIOS and it failed. This then renderes the motherboard DEAD. Your only option is to try and find a replacement motherboard.
