    i have the same problem. in fact I had other problems too. the boot sector is not working and i cannot reinstall windows. who wants windows , I started using ubuntu and it was working fine till i hibrenated the computer. since then I had this problem one beep and two short ones. I am not too sure if it the ram or the video card and i don't know how to fix it. I can not resit the bios because i cannot have access to the screen. one way i think is to rest the ram. I will have to do that this. If the ram is fixed and th computer is back on, i will then have to install windows by runing a test first. I am not going to buy hp again specially laptops. The over-heat. and very delicate, specially if you expermint with, programming , firmware, and operating systems kernel.

I had the same problem. Turn on your laptop (dv2000) and let it do its thing with the black screen and One long and Two short beeps. Keep the laptop plugged in...Now here is where the "are you kidding me" part kicks in.

Wrap your laptop (while it's on) in a blanket and put it on a bed or a couch (where the laptop won't have room to circulate air beneath it). You must leave it wrapped in the blanket for about 30 minutes minimum, or wait an hour if possible.

Chances are, your laptop will get ver hot and shut itself down at some point before you come back in an hour. When the hour is up, try turning on your laptop again. Ideally, it should work and you now have a working laptop again.

I realize this sounds crazy, but I am typing this quick fix from my dv2000 after doing exactly what i just subscribed. I read it on some other forum when i was on my wife's pc. If this doesn't work the first time, try it one or two more times. This trick has something to do with getting a "broken" (?) connection between the video card and the motherboard soddering back together.

Hope this helps at least one of you. Good luck.

I just spent over an hour on the phone with HP Support. They know about the problem, but to quote the 3rd person I spoke with "it's a numbers game". You see, not enough dv2000 owners have complained about this problem. There has been a partial warranty extension on certain models issued in 2007. You can check here...http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1842189&dlc=en&docname=c01087277#c01087277_identify but don't count on yours being covered. So far HP is not acknowledging the problem with the dv2000 models sold in late 2006 and early 2007 because not enough people have reported the problem and some are willing to fork over the $400 to get their notebooks fixed. Personally, I'll just never buy HP again. Call HP support and let them know how you feel about having a laptop that has a major problem after a little over 1 year. Email their CEO by clicking "Contact HP" on their home page. Then under "Email HP" click "Other questions/feedback". Then click the last link, "Send a message to the CEO - Mark Hurd." Sooner or later they will have to repair their name by repairing our notebooks.

I have an HP same booting problem 1 long beep and two short beeps. Now im not sure weather this fixes the problem all the time or not but yesterday to get mine working. After the bios beeps i left the computer run for about 5 minutes with the blank screen until i thought it would certainly be at windows OS/password. Then i shut-off and restarted and the display was back. I only tried this once so i might not work for everyone but let me know if it does! Good Luck!!

To JT0801 :geniously, it worked for me too (HP Pavilion DV-9073EA). A couple of days back it rebooted 4 times spontaniously in a row. The same evening, it booted, worked for about 1 hour, rebooted again spontaniously but this time it was the end of the story; 1 long beep followed by two short beeps, no screen ..

1hour wrapped in a blanket, after about 45 minutes in the blanket it came alive all by itself, booted, shut down again (thermal protection?). Took it out of the blanket, let it cool down and taaaa daaaaa, it works again.

Perhaps welding points, but I guess it may also be this :

Anyway, a huge "thank you", I wouldn't have guessed this one my own :)

I had the 1 long 2 short beeps also on my dv6000. As suggested I turned it on and let it overheat by wrapping it in a blanket. The next time I turned it on I couldn't believe it, it appears to be fixed but time will tell. I'm glad I don't have to depend on it, I have 2 other computers.

I faced the same problem too. I was extremely mad because it happened twice. A computer shop changed my motherboard once. But shortly after one month the same thing happened again. Eventually i have to buy myself a new sony VAIO. I swear i will never buy HP laptops again.

I have this 1 long and 2 short beeps for my HP dv9000z. I chatted with service tech yesterday and was offered free repair although warranty has expired. Before this I have switched fan, motherboard among other things.

The say that the video card has failed.

It is not your hard drive, or your video car, or your fan, or your memory. It generally happens when HP does an update and the sequence has not been completely updated on the motherboard. Try removing the battery from *********** board for several seconds. It is a common problem. If this does not work, you will need to reload cmos commands. 90% of the time, that will do the trick.

I had the same problem with a pavilion n5150.. one long with two short beeps. I removed the small cover in the back.. took out the..? card not the memory card but the other one.. not sure what it is.. perhaps a modem?? has a wire attached to one edge,.and put it back in several times.. to make the connections better.. I think they corrode.... then My screen came back on and I had no beeps.. it fixed the problem... hope it works for others. Moore.options

hi

1. make sure that any key is stick on the keyboard,

2. you will have to remove all key, one by one until the beep sound stop.

if the problem continue then, you have to open the case and disconnect the keyboard cable from
the laptop mainboard, close the case. Then use a mini or normal size USB keyboard

hope this helped you to solve the problem

Problem for HP HP Pavilion dv2000 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC The power is OK but I get 1 long beep and 2 short beeps when switching on, the screen remains blank and no activity on the laptop


Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it
Hope this gives you the information you need

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 Pavillion doesn't turn on


That indicates a video problem. You will probably have to replace the motherboard.

1 long beep and 2 short beeps


This must be an Award BIOS.

1 long and 2 short beeps indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

I doubt there is anything you can do, other then taking it in for service.

It's most likely the video controller.

You might try connecting an external monitor, but I doubt it will function.

HP DV2175 START UP PROBLEM


The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self Test). For whatever reason, HP does not do a great job telling us exactly what their POST beep codes mean. The only thing I could find was that the 1 long, 2 short beeps on the AWARD BIOS systems means a failed video adapter. I think there is a good chance this is your problem. You will most likely have to contact HP to get it repaired.
