That beeps mean something. If the meaning isn't defined in the user manual, contact HP customer service and ask.
It's something like "bad RAM" or "bad CPU" or "bad video". It's so bad the BIOS can't show the error on the screen, so it just beeps to get your attention.
Depending on what's broken you'll have to decide between repairing it or replacing it.
I have a HP computer with the Vista operating system appox 3-4 years old. When I recently turned it on it did not boot up. All I hear is one short beep and then one longer beep over and over again.Could you tell me what is wrong and how to correct it?
If more info is need please let me know.
thanks for you assistance
