HP Pavillion Laptop

My HP Pavilion dv6045nr will not show any display when booted up. Screen remains completely black, not just dim. Error code is 1 long beep, followed by two short beeps. Information I've found elsewhere indicates that may be a problem with the RAM, but I've tried replacing it and it had no effect. It has two RAM slots and I've tried swapping the cards, as well as running off one at a time. Basically i covered every possible combination of RAM placement, but got the same error every time. It was working one night with no indications of trouble, but a few hours later when I woke up it seemed that it would not "wake up." When I tried rebooting, I got the error beeps and it hasn't had a display since. I have NOT tried an external monitor yet, I would have to find someone with a desktop and don't know anyone off hand. I appreciate any help anyone can give!

    Got the same problem this morning.

    Man. I'll never buy HP again. I cant work all of my files are locked now.



    I think I need to replace mother board since the video card is a built-in . HP Tech will charge 400$ plus tax. PC costs now around 550$



    Any Ideas



    Thanks for the help

    Seems I have exactly the same problem with my dv9000. No display, one long and two short beeps at startup. From the sounds I can hear, it seems like the PC starts OK, but no display at all.

I have just experienced same p[roblem with my Pavillion laptop. Seems to be a graphics card problem. (Hp have issued extended warranties to cover this problem, which is apparently quite common in the pavillion range?)
I have had to send my machine back to HP to fix it. gah.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop will not boot up.


Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.

My HP Pavillion laptop turns on but the screen doesn't show.


You could be expierencing a problem with your monitor screen. try this.... connect another monitor screen to the VGA port of your laptop. Now try booting up. Look for and push Fn + the key that turns on a secondary display. if the monitor screen comes on. you need
another laptop monitor. At least you can use your laptop with the second monitor for now.

HP laptop display issue


If you are recving 1 long and two short beeps, it is not a memory problem.
It is not a Lid closing or lid switch problem.
If you are able to switch to and from your LCD and Monitor, you are lucky.
I have been up and down the road with several HP DV6000 series units, all have had the 1 long and 2 shot beeps.
HP is aware of this problem and has offered an extended 1 year from date of original warranty expiration. Another words 2 years from date of purchase. HP will ask for $365.00 + or - ? for this repair.
Their repair consists of a motherboard replacement.

If you go to HP's web site, you can look up your model and if in warranty, have it sent back for repair.
The problem will not get better in time but only worsen. The heat sink on the dual core units is not handling the heat transfer properly.
The board is a 2 sided wafer which has displayed failure in several places, due to the heat load and transfer design. Area of problem is directly under NVIDIA chip look for craters. Theses are solder points the size of a pins head which because of the heat and the stress of the transfer bracket above, have separated making in some cases an intermittent connection to chip.
The best thing to do is have a technician remove the board from inspection and blow out the heat sink and surrounding areas.
Apply new heat sink tape and grease where needed and re-assemble.

You must update your BIOS ver. to current.
This new version will address the Voltage and Fan Control Speeds in a better manor.
If your unit is just now giving you these errors, now is the time to act.
Just like in a A/C unit at home, a restricted air flow will make unit run longer and hotter.
Their are no filters here, once lint and dust have collected in the coils, it is just a matter of time.
Hope this helps you in your problems.
Anybody reading this note having a DV6000 series unit, should check at their web site for warranty and call back issues.

P.S. if you are a technician and feel you want to repair the board yourself, drop me an email with the model number and I will explain in more detail.
