I have an HP pavillion with the Vista 64 bit operating system. the a6500f computer and it will not boot up. I get an error code BIOME-1. No changes were made to the computer and no new siftware added. it just froze up and stopped working.

Your PC appears to be getting memory errors. Here are the specifications (picture on the motherboard) for your PC. The long black slots (upper right hand part of the motherboard) are the memory dimms slots. Remove one dimm and see if you can get past the memory error. If not, replace the dimm and remove the other. If you get past the error, then reinstall the presumably a bad dimm and see if the error occurs again. Sometimes just reseating the memory dimms clears up the problem.
The below link is for a memory diagnostic. You might need to burn it to disk on a different PC.

I purchased HP computer (M9552P) on Jun. 16, 2009. After 6 months, its Video card was noisy, I informed several times to HP, they had not care, so by spending around $200 I changed it. Now there is an error Code; BIOME-1 for the memory card, It looks it has to go repair shop. Do you believe the HP products are good?

pc model : HP Pavilion a6500f
os: Vista 64
problem: PC Doctor reports BIOME-1 memory error with both 2GB RAM modules installed
PC works OK (slower, of course) with either 2GB RAM module installed separately - in either port. PC also tested with new Crucial modules (unbuffered 6400 CL6) - same result.
Sometimes PC Doctor reports no errors with both modules installed, but the pc will crash soon after booting and displays something like:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3 Locale ID: 1033 Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 3b BCP1: 00000000C0000005 BCP2: FFFFF8000248BD51 BCP3: FFFFFA6001E63F40 BCP4: 0000000000000000 OS Version: 6_0_6002 Service Pack: 2_0 Product: 768_1
Is it the motherboard failing? Thanks for any advice.
