This is a link the hp support pages and refers to/includes beep codes for the amd bios... - have a read through the whole "page".

It may be a problem with the cpu; it may be a problem with RAM...

Usual steps to try initially:

Remove all power. Open the case and blow out all vents and cooling fans with compressed air (not a vacuum cleaner).

Remove Memory sticks; clean edges with soft pencil style eraser; wipe their edges with a lint free cloth (even a kleenex type tissue). Re-insert each memory stick firmly and then remove it. Re-insert and remove again. Then re-insert and leave inserted.

Then power up and see what ails?

Prior to current situation were there any other problems arriving; e.g. shutting down suddenly; hanging etc.?

✔ Best Answer
According to HP, the Pavilion 500-c60 has an AMD A6-5200, not an Intel i5. There are other models in the 500-xxx series that use Intel CPUs, but the characters after the dash are different.

Did you make any hardware changes? 5 beeps seems to indicate a problem with the motherboard.
