beep codes for hp computer

HP Recommended
pavilion p6000, model p6654y
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

When i power up the computer, i get 1 short and 1 long beep which repeats forever.

i read that this code meant that the memory was bad.

I removed the memory and swapped slots and reistalled the momory, still no luck.

I have read that using an eraser on the contacts can clean them, still no luck.

Purchased no momory and installed it still no luck.

Any suggestions for something else wrong, beside replacing the motherboard.

See: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02222922

 

Your pattern is  listed, as you indicated.

 

Can you "clear" the BIOS settings, such as the timings/speed for the RAM ?

If the current settings are incorrect, your RAM cannot match those settings.

 

Of course, the motherboard could have gone "bad".

 

Have you tried just one stick of the new RAM, in one slot?

Have you tried just one stick of the new RAM, in a different slot?

Hi bigbear3

 

Nice troubleshooting!

 

How many sticks of memory did HP install at the factory?

 

One 4 GB module or two 2 GB modules?

 

You could also try each original HP stick of memory in each memory slot.

 

Where did you buy the new memory? Crucial Memory works very well in HP PC 's.

 

The motherboard memory controller may have bit the dust if none of the HP memory modules work in each memory slot and none of the new compatible PC3-10600 memory modules work in each memory slot.

Hi bigbear3

 

Did you use an eraser on the memory module gold fingers or the motherboard memory contacts?

 

It is not a good idea to contaminate either surface with any foreign material.
