Question about PC Laptops
Hi i am having that problem... Can u help me on how to solve it plz
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
