Question about HP Pavilion a220n (DK218A#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

POST Beeps. My desktop HP Pavilion a220n and the connected monitor will not work. During the POST the PC makes 2 quick beeps and then six more slower beeps. I was told these beeps mean something specific is wrong. I have tried removing the graphics card that I had, because I thought it might be the problem. However the PC is still making the same sounds. What can I do?

HP Beep codes are listed here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07107&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=329076&dlc=en&lang=en None of them matches your description, so listen again and see if the pattern matches any described by HP. Have you tried the monitor on another computer? Did you connect to the onboard graphics connector? Look for any loose components, especially memory.

Have you tried connecting your PC to another monitor? I'm not seeing the monitor getting any signal. Also, is the computer making any clear internal beeping patterns? Like 2 quick beeps or long beeps etc?

We just got an HP Pavilion A1540N from my cousin, we are trying to boot it up and it beeps and the monitor turns on but goes right to sleep.


Will need the beep sequence the amount of beeps. The beeps lets ya know that there was something wrong in POST. Most likely cause would be the video card but need the beep sequence to be certain.

Hp pavilion desktop a220n


check the fan (top rear of the computer) , make sure it runs when you start the computer. if it is NOT running the power supply may be the cause.
also you may need to remove the case and inspect the fans inside. you shoulkd be able to remove a couple phillips head screws on the back of the computer and lift the cover off or at least the side making the guts of thhe computer visible.
once open , inspect all the fans and cables, especially the fan on the main board and the metal piece with fins undernieth it, this tends to collect dust causing the cpu below to overheat and shut down the syatem to protect itself. The number one cause of crashes is overheating.
look at these things to start and post your findings and we'll move on to another step.
