8 beeps + black screen

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion All - in - One PC

Hi all. Last night I upgraded HP software. My computer turns on, I get a black screen, I hear 8 beeps. The computer stays on but the black screen stays.


Can someone help please?

Depending on the age of the PC and the BIOS vendor...


Hopefully one of these documents will cover (and solve) your problem...


8 BEEPS can be part of the BIOS repair attempt.

Power button LED blinks 8 times with 8 beeps

BIOS/CMOS  --  (ROM) problem,

Perform BIOS recovery with external media (USB/CD-ROM).





So more than 1 possibility for you to match too.
