Server, laptop, what's the difference. The beep codes are probably the same anyway. :icon_rolleyes:

I think the 'troubleshooting' section of this manual will do the original poster more good, although it doesn't describe exact beep codes:

Thanks for the info, I already had the manual. This is the first time dealing with beep codes. Took it to Best Buy geek squad and they told me I would have to send it in at a cost of $108 just for shipping and diagnosing. I would just like to find out whats wrong with it and approximate cost as I can get a compatable new one for under $500. If need be I will call HP and run the gauntlet.
