Based on what you have presented...
1 long 2 short - (Video Controller Failure or faulty add-on card

Do you have an installed video card? Does the unit have a built in Card? (In other words part of the mother board?)

If you have an installed card check that it is not loose... If it is still not functioning (and)

If your unit also has a built in video card that is disabled... go to the BIOS and enable it... see if your unit will boot up...

If the video card is not loose and you do not have a built in card... you may want to see if you know someone with an extra card to loan... or purchase a new one....

Hard drive beeping noises


Never heard of a Harddrive beeping before, but I'll take your word for it.

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computer's way if telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

The beeps are a pattern, or Code.
For example; 1 Long beep, a pause; then 3 Short beeps.

One Short beep, pause, Short Beep, pause; and repeating over, and over.

So....................in your own words Eric, tell the jury where you were on the night in question?
Do you have any alibi's?

WHAT? !O_O!

I mean................what is the beep code you hear?

Plus what is the Product Number of the HP desktop computer?
This can be found on the back of the computer, in the white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

The computer should beep ONCE when starting-up.
More than one BEEP implies either that the video-card is not responding, or that it is not fully "seated" in its slot.

Try a different video-card in your desktop.

Hello Prosper, I found drivers for a Sony Vaio VGC-LA1. It would appear that it is just a different name for the same model. These should work fine for you. Hope I have solved your problem, have a great day Prosper!

Computer started beeping and will not restart


1. That is not your product number, it is your windows license number. You have now posted it for all the world to steal.

2. Reseat your memory. If that doesn't work and you have more than one stick of memory, remove it one at a time until you find the bad stick.

Sony vaio pcg k 15 notebook beeps on starup


If you hit some keys and then it starts - it indicates a stuck key on the keyboard. Check the keys to make sure they are all fully up and nothing has been spilled on them or gotten stuck under them. Keys can be removed usually by prying gently under the edge and replaced by pressing down firmly. Probably what is happening is the if a program opens and you see a series of 4's is that the "4" key is the one sticking partially and preventing boot up. The beeeep is simply to tell you something is wrong with hardware, ie: keyboard, mouse, memory will all generate a long beep or several short beeps. The owners manual will list beep codes to help you determine where to look to find the problem.

Video card


Working and Working properly are 2 different things.

Unplug your pc. Let it set for 1 minute.
Plug in your pc.
Press the power button.

Does your monitor do anything?
No? Then it doesnt work
Yes? Then it works

If you get any video such as your BIOS or WIndows loading then the video card is fine.

Also, if you boot and you hear noises like:
Long Beep short Beep short Beep short Beep
(Long short short short)
Then your pc is not detecting the video card.
