My parent's computer makes a beep code everytime it boots. I know it's some code to let me know which error occured and I've been googling for some time but I can't find any information about the beep code. I hear 3 long beeps followed by 4 short beeps and this is repeated two times. Does anyone know what this means?
The product code of the computer is 22-3107NB, ask me if you need extra information.
Thanks for your help!

In this scenario, I would suggest this could be a possible hardware failure. However, I would suggest you follow the steps suggested in the support document for -
According to 3 long beeps and 4 short beeps this could be due to - The system board displays a power failure.

Thanks for your reply!
The computer still boots normally after the beep code, that's not the problem. I wasn't clear about that, sorry... The beep sounds are just annoying when it boots. Can this be caused by a recent power cut in our hometown? The computer is ussually in sleep mode and about two weeks ago there was a power cut at night.
The computer is out warranty since february 2018. I can't find any information on how to contact HP on the link you provided. I just want to call someone without having to buy technical support, how difficult can it be?

Thanks for your reply. In the meantime I've reached out to HP Support on Twitter and they brought me in contact with HP Support from Belgium. Now I'm waiting for their reponse, so I think this thread can be closed. I think that I'll get the solution faster if I'm in contact with the Belgian support team. But I thank you all for your help.
