Hi.

 

A 3:2 BIOS error code is a memory initialization problem. HP Reference doc (Link).

 

Did you remove and reseat the memory modules when checking the memory? Try doing this again.

 

Then try one memory module in each memory slot to see if the PC will POST. Repeat this process for each memory module installed in the PC. It is highly unlikely you have damaged all memory modules or all MB memory slots.

 

It sounds like you have memory module damage or MB damage.

 

You may have to purchase a new, compatible memory stick to determine MB damage if the PC will not POST using existing memory modules.

 

Regards
