I have an HP dv6000 that will power up but not do anything else. It has xp pro w/sp2.
There are two faint beeps after powering up.
Nothing appears on the monitor.
The cd/dvd drive spins up but the hard drive never engages.
The system will then try to restart itself.
The only changes that I recall were automatic updates. The computer actually stopped working about a month or 6 weeks ago.
If I recall correctley, before it stopped working completely, the screen went blank once and there was no response, I powered it down and started it back up. I think it started back up right away and was alright, then a couple of days later it wouldn't start back up right away, but did start. I think it worked for a couple more days before the current state.
I have removed the hard drive and been able to access it.
I tried creating a boot disc but it didn't boot the computer.
I hope this is enough information to give you an idea of what the problem might be.
