XP laptop - 3 beeps on boot - nothing on screen - help!
Posted on 2007-09-29
i have a hp pavillion dv6000 laptop, i left it on this morning when i went to work, and when returning some 7ish hours later, i arrived to find my laptop what appeared to be in sleep mode...i moved the mouse/touched the keyboard to "wake" it... and the laptop appeared to come to life...but still a black screen.
I restarted by powering off, then on.. and upon startup i just get 3 beeps from the laptop speaker.
You can hear the cd drive checking for disk, and the hard disk "whurling", and the 3 beeps - the laptop remains "on" but nothing on the screen, not even the HP loading screen before xp starts
Ive tried removing batter for 20+ mins and battery is fully charged
Ive tried ringing the HP technical support but they are closed till monday :(
It was orriginally a media centre laptop, but its now got windows XP performance edition on it
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
