    Hows many beeps does it do and are they long or short beeps? it sounds like your memory has gone bad.

    I need to also caution the making your computer overheat is NEVER a good idea.

    heat and processors are not good together.

Sounds like System Ram......... I would not recommend wrapping it up in a blanket anymore, Heat is a motherboards enemy!!! Try Removing your Ram and re seating it.... If this does not work you may be experiencing MINI dump issues, if this is so
Looks like you may have a rootkit infection.
Did you recently install MS update KB977165?
If yes then try the following.

1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console
Once you are in the Repair Screen.
2. Type this: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst
3. Type this: BATCH spuninst.txt
4. When complete, type this: exit

Hello, it's most probably a graphics card problem: that the POST (power-on self-test) has detected. Try reseating your graphics card, ie power everything OFF first!! then remove screw holding down your graphics card, make sure you touch the chassis to discharge any static electricity in you, then remove the card; then refit it.

I turn it on, but the screen stays blank and the fan starts blowing really hard, caps lock and other lights light up but my laptop doesn't start at all.

if this continues consistently you might be looking at a screen problem, take the system to a qualified laptop screen repairer to get it fixed.
hope this helps

Common issue. Your options are.
1. Replace the motherboard
2. Check out the DIY repair guide on
3. Take the hard drive out, turn on the laptop and wrap the laptop in a towel(don't wrap the screen) for like an hour to let the heat fix it. Doesn't always work, but you have nothing to loose at this point.

Does it bleep? do you wan't the bad news or the bad news,It's a comon fault with all HP DV models,the graphic chips gone & it can't be replaced.
But just to make sure,plug a desktop monitor in to the VGA port on the side of the laptop then restart it.
if theirs no picture then bad look,bin it,If their is a picture then you just need a new screen.

HP laptop screen finally went blank.

It sounds more like the inverter that makes the LCD screen work rather than the motherboard. I used inverter can run 10-30.00

Infact I just replaced on on my DV6000. It just takes time and paying attention to it. The fact they would not tell you if it was recalled annoys me since on their site it tell you it was.

Your better to find someone that can do the job for $50.00 then to send it to Hp for the $99.00 fee labor and parts that would probally cost you a few hundred when done. Wish you were closer Id help!

Let me know if I can help further.
