Laptop won't start only gives two BEEPS! HELP!

I have a Hp-Compaq Presario v2570us which has been running smoothly and was only down once when I had to send it for some repairs from HP as the lcd went dim.... this morning when we started it up there was one of the BLUE SCREENS and before I could read it all it restarted.  Now it won't boot up....this couldn't be a worse time as we had not backed it up last night.  When we power it on all we get are two beeps and nothing else it does not respond at all beyond the two beeps which are simply BEEP BEEP!  HELP!  PLEASE THIS IS VERY URGENT!

That is overload power issue. Disconnect external devices see if it helps. If not, you will need disconnect some internal devices see if system will boot.

Actually someone suggested it may be a bad ram chipset, so I removed one of the RAM chips and it is working fine now!

Glad the problem solved, however, the beepcode indicated to power supply for HP system.

HP tells me that the bad RAM Chipset could identify as an overload power issue when it is connected to too many peripherals at the same time!  So looks like you were right! Thanks....ciao
