4 BIOS beeps booting HP laptop

May 4, 2010 at 06:11:11
Specs: Windows Vista
When I start my laptop it lets out 4 beeps. The touch keys are illuminated and the fan is going but no display. I have read diff what to do's but decided to call HP. They will not assist without $$$ since I am past my warranty. They acknowledge on their own website issues a lot of diff HP laptops but mine is not included. They only add to the list if 30 or more owners of the same type with same p/n call and have issues "tagged". Not call in for support mind you but have the issue "tagged". The supervisor I talked with admits not all calls are tagged. So if you have the same type I do it is possible we can get these laptops fixed for FREE. Call was escalated and am awaiting their call. Who else has this issue and what can be done to fix it in the mean time?

Since you state They acknowledge on their own website issues a lot of diff HP laptops but mine is not included, you might want to edit your post to include the model number. Maybe then someone with that same model/problem could help you out with a resolution...or at least add their name/problem added/tagged with HP so you'd be that much closer to the magic 30.

[edit]There is a list of what beep codes mean for some BIOSes available at Computer Hope. Without knowing your model I wouldn't venture a guess on your BIOS, but maybe you remember it from when it started up before?
