just as my hp was about to go into hibernate mode the other night (it was closed), all the lights came on and it made 3 loud beeps. now when i try to start it up all the lights come on and it makes the three loud beeps but the screen wont turn on and the only way to turn it off is to remove the battery.

That refers to your system memory. Reseat them several times into their slots. Or test a stick in different slots but it is better to clean its gold contacts first with a pencil eraser before testing it in your system.


Have you checked if your lappy falls in HPs faulty batch? You can check on their website. Obviously they have sold lots of faulty Pavillions. If your model and serial number falls in that batch you are supposed to get a free repair. (Just pray that they dont notice that "the unit has been opened"(if it was) or your extra year of warranty is void).

I have sent mine to HP only to hear that I must pay for repair , despite the fact that they sold me a screwed product!

Here is HPs pavillion link. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/g...reg_R1002_UKEN

Good luck to fellow HP victim.
