Solved!

New machine; post beeps, 3 long 3 short

HP Recommended
Pavilion 580-137c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Immediately when I power one the unit it beeps. 3 long 3 short and repeats. I read other posts and saw that could be a seating issue. Removed ram and video card and reseated. Swap dimm slots. Tonight is the first time I've powered the unit on. Before I reseated it would eventually boot, now it won't.

Hi

You get a LONG (MAJOR) signal category, RED LED &

then a SHORT (MINOR) signal category, WHITE LED.

Major – the category of the error; Minor – specific error in that category

The AUDIBLE repeats 5 times, and the VISUAL until power is removed.

 

3.3

The embedded controller has timed out waiting for BIOS to return from graphics initialization.

 

Indicates potential graphics chip failure.

For integrated configuration (I/C):

1 For I/C, confirm if graphics is on processor or Main-Board.

2 For I/C where graphics is on the CPU, swap known good processor.

3 For I/C, replace Main-Board and/or processor as appropriate.

If the add-in card requires additional power, verify the cord is plugged in.

For non-integrated configuration (N-I/C😞

1 Reseat card if able.

2 Test known good card if able.

3 Replace affected component.

Thanks for the help. I've requested an RMA.
