Beep Code on Boot-up

Pavillion P6733w
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Whenever I turn on my PC, it emits one short and one long beep which repeat continuously until I shut it down, which can only be done by holding down the power button. Nothing is displayed on the monitor. I have taken out the RAM, the hard drive, and graphics cards all in an attempt to find the problem. I have tested each of my RAM cards individually. I have tried vaccuuming out dust as well. The beeping sounds like it comes from the fan attached to the CPU, if that helps at all. Any ideas would be appreciated, even if it’s just that I need a new PC. Thanks.

Beep Code on Boot-up

@DJal88 

Most likely, the PC is experiencing a major hardware failure -- this is especially true if the CapsLock key is blinking.

Since the PC is a desktop, this HP thread describes the different blink codes: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07107?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001

--------------------
If you CAN, to find out the problem, you would need to be able run hardware diagnostics by pressing the Esc key repeatedly and then, when the HP Startup Menu appears, select Diagnostics (usually F2) and let it run.

If you can NOT do that, or if that does not work, then there is NOTHING more you can do by yourself -- and there is NOTHING we can do because we have no way of accessing your PC from here to run diagnostics or repair hardware.

You will need to have the PC physically examined in a service facility by folks that can run their own diagnostics to determine what is wrong with it.

--------------------
If your PC is still under the original one-year HP warranty, or if you have purchased an extended warranty from HP and this is still valid, then having HP do this is an inexpensive option for you. In that case, you should contact HP Customer Support to see about having it repaired or replaced under warranty.

To contact HP Support see the following link to create yourself a case number, then call and it may help speed up the call process:

Step 1. Here is the link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp
Step 2. Enter Product number or select to auto detect
Step 3. Scroll down to "Still need help? Complete the form to select your contact options"
Step 4. Scroll down and click on: HP contact options - click on Get phone number

Case number and phone number appear.
--------------------
If your PC is no longer under warranty, then it will cost you up front to have HP examine your PC. If you want to do that, you will have to contact an HP Repair or Service Center to see if they can examine the PC to determine the cause(s) of the problems, if it can be repaired, and an estimate of the repair costs.

If you live in the U.S., here is a link to the HP Service Repair Centers:

If you live outside the U.S., here is a link to HP Service Centers, by Country/Region: https://support.hp.com/in-en/service-center

Good Luck

@DJal88 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand your concern and I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP.

 

They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number.

Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact.

 

Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

 

If you are unfamiliar with how the Community's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
