HP Dv6 -7040 notebook fails to startup and makes a loud beeping sound

Hey,

 

My DV6-7040 notebook fails to startup normally and makes a loud beeping sound whenever i press the power button. The beeping sound keeps on continuing and it shows press the ESC key to go to startup. On pressing the ESC keep about three times the system begins to load and then works properly. However, i have noticed that the numeric keypad is jumbled. When i press the key 9 it shows 1 and when i press the key 5 it shows 8. 

When ever i power on the laptop it keeps beeping. Incase i dont press the ESC kep the beeping sound keeps continuing. I have already done a memory test and primary hard disk test via bios and it shows no problems. 

Can i please get help on this topic. I need my laptop for alot of my work and alot of presentations. Is the beeping sound signifying a short circuit??? 

the operating system is Windows 7 home premium

i have not installed any softwares in the laptop nor any hardware devices are connected to it. I have just purchased the laptop a month ago.

It sounds like you may need to restore the BIOS. I recommend taking a look at the following document.

Hi

 

I'm facing a similar problem with my 2009-10 model hp dv6 1100 (AMD proccesor windows vista ) .Continuous non stop beeping (1-1-1-1 etc) , does not load windows. Start up memory test and hard disk completed successfully. So I also have to restore BIIOS or could it be some other problem...?? Please let me know if any other information is needed

Hello nikhil_kurup,

 

You are getting a beep sound as you start the computer.

 

The beep sound that you are hearing is a code to tell what is wrong with the computer.

 

Here is a link with a list of beep codes and troubleshooting steps.

 

Clicking the White Kudos star on the left is a way to say Thanks!

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Have a good day.

Hi anthony

Thanks for your help. I have checked the link you sent as well as a few others but none of them seem to show the beep sequence that I heard from my laptop. BTW it started working again after a couple of hours!!!

It was emitting short beeps continuosly (more than 20 times after which i switched it off)  ,do I have to get the laptop checked?? The AMD processor has a huge heating problem could it be due to overheating?? I have never faced a prob with this laptop besides the heating related issues...!

 

Thanks

Nikhil

nikhil_kurup,

 

The beeping could have been caused by the laptop getting too hot.

 

Have you tried updating the BIOS?  This will usually help with the overheating.

Here is a link to the BIOS update.

 

Also you should clean the vents with compressed air, just to make sure there is not a buildup of dust.

Just disconect your keybard. Search on youtube how to disconect it. Your keyboard is dirty or have a defect.
