Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

HP Pavilion notebook Model No DV2224EA Product No RY395EA. On pressing the start button almost immediately there is a long beep followed by two short beeps. The computer than seems to stop functioning. The screen remains blank at all times and the boot process stops. I have been told this may be a system board problem but if it is I must send the computer to HP as the board cannot be purchased on the open market. The computer is out of warranty so is it worth the hassle?

    Thank you for your advice but still no joy. The graphic is integrated which I assume brings us back to the motherboard. Starting to look expensive.

    Hello, I have exactly the same product and model, with exactly the same problem. HP technical support informs me that the grahpics card within the main board is faulty.



    They quoted me £270 to repair (almost better to replace the notebook).



    Apparently this is a common fault, although HP is not prepared to to pay for, even though they are aware of the problem.



    So if you have a HP dv2000 series notebook under the 1 year warranty, I strongly advise to pay for a 2 year extended warranty as the chances are high that it may not last more than 1 year.

This doesnt mean that it's the motherboard, you could have other hardware probems that the beeps refer to depending on bios version, sometimes pressing F1 continues the boot, if so then the time and date should be checked, if wrong, then it's a cmos battery replacement thats needed, this beep can refer to also the graphics or the memory, so if you are able to locate the memory bay, remove and reseat the memory and try again

I would like a user manual for my HP desktop computer, or one that I can download and read it. Product No. BV574AA#ABA HP S2031a


Unfortunately the product info you have given is from your monitor. Don't worry though, here are the instructions to find your desktop's model.
1. Press the start button and type in dxdiag, one search result should show up, go ahead and open that . (If for some reason it didn't work or you're using a version of windows older than Vista, press the windows flag on your keyboard and the R button at the same time, so windows flag+R, and type in dxdiag)
2. Check under systeminfo and look for your system model (for me it's "HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook PC", so it would be listed as simply "HP Pavilion DV6")
3. Go to this site and look for your system model you just found. Click on it and it should allow you to download the manual

My "hp pavilion a220n" won't


Check all wires for loose connections--- if the memory was wrong or something, it would still attempt to boot but stop during the POST and start to beep

HP BIOS beep codes
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html

Because Hewlett-Packard (HP) uses a variety of motherboards and BIOSs, their computers use a variety of beep codes. Instead of listing each model's beep codes, links are provided to the support pages of several popular Hewlett-Packard desktops.
Note: Hewlett-Packard and Compaq merged in 2002 and the new company dropped the Compaq name from all but a few consumer product lines--such as Presario desktops and notebooks. This table lists only HP-branded desktops, while the next table lists Compaq-branded machines.
