HP Pavilion Dv6-1107X Lockups :: Constant Beeps Then Windows Boot Manager
Jan 14, 2014
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-1107X Entertainment Series notebook. When I turn it on I get an inconsisent series of very loud short beeps nearly always in 3 groups. First group can be 4 to 6 beeps. Second group can be 1 or 2. Third group just goes on and on until the Windows Boot Manager pops up. Once I select the Vista operating system everything appears to start working as normal.
Here is what I have done:
1. Replaced motherboard and CPU
2. Checked and tested hard drive by diagnostic and in another machine - okay
3. Have used a known good hard drive in this machine - same symptoms, no change.
4. Checked and tested RAM stick in both slots, by diagnostic test and on another machine - okay
5. Did a Factory Default recovery - Operating System (OS) behaved erratically.
6. Did a Clean Install using another machine - OS works but same symptoms as above with beeps and Windows Boot Manager.
7. Installed all required drivers as required in Device Manager (after a LOT of problems trying to find the HP driver download support - I had to search for HP Compaq Pavilion dv6-1107AX to find a site that linked to the driver downloads).
8. Have run AVG anti virus, and 3 x anti spyware (Malwarebytes, Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware). Nil bugs founds.
9. Reset BIOS to defaults.
Am also having problems from time to time access BIOS. It takes several attempts but can be gained by pressing F10 immediately after the first screen with ESC option on it. Also have problems access Safe Mode using F8 but perseverance is required and it will work eventually.
I have an acer laptop e1-571 with windows 8. the mb failed ordered a new one installed it. on boot now i get no bootable device. The bios shows the hard drive and its the first in the boot order. If i hit f12 after powering on to access boot options the 3rd choice is efi device windows boot manager. If i select that it boots normally and runs fine. is their a way to boot the machine without having to hit f12 every time and selecting efi device to boot to windows? i tried updating the bios as well.
I have HP pavilion dv7 which won't let me in BIOS to change boot order.
I have windows 8 32 bit installed and it keep booting normally no matter which key (Esc,F9,F10,F1,F2 etc) at start up, is pressed or keep pressed.. it wont stop booting and wont let me in BIOS. All it does it that if keys are pressed it will start beeping but then boot anyway.
I want to boot it from USB and install WIndows 8.1 64 bit.
I updated BIOS (it's now Hewlett-Packard F.49) with a download from HP's website. I wish I hadn't done that because it made my laptop ill. When booting up it freezes and the only thing I see is the black screen with HP logo. No button works.
Later I've found out that BIOS itself ain't the problem (I tried to recover the old version for long without any success), it's the USB devices attached or the USB ports, dunno. My laptop boots normally and works perfectly if I take off all the USB plug-ins before I press the power button. After the black screen has passed I can plug in the USBs and they work too.URL....
On restarting I was given two options: 1. Launch Startup Repair - Choosing option 1 gave me an error message HP Recovery window stating - Create file fail. On clicking Ok, it takes me to another screen (HP recovery manager window) stating Recovery not supported under current configuration, please enable accelearation option for intel Smart Technology and try again. When I click Ok the screen closes and the computer shuts off. 2. Start Windows Normally - Choosing Option 2 gets me back to the BSOD with the same error
Then I tapped on F8 while stating up. I was given a host of options: 1. Repair your computer - Error window (Windows Script Host) Script: X:Rita-toolStart.vbs; Line: 93; Char:14; Eror: The system cannot find the file specified; Code 80070002; Sourcenull). then it goes back to the error reported earlier for Launch Startup repair 2. Safe mode - BSOD same error 3. Safe mode with networking 4. Safe mode with command prompt 5. Enable boot logging 6. Enable low-resolution video (640x480) 7. Last known good configuration (Advanced) - BSOD same error 8. Directory Services Restore mode 9. Debugging mode 10. Disable automatic restart on system failure 11. Disable driver signature enforcement 12. Start Windows normally
I did not try any of the other options as I was not sure what it was. Then I tapped F2 while starting up and went into the HP Advanced Systems Diagnostics screen. There were a lot of options for running tests.
Every test I run ends up as failed. Failure ID: 0U6G3A-63C785-MFPX0J-60R803. It always says Hard Disk Short DST: Failed
Bottom line is any option I take it gives me one of two errors, either the BSOD UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME or the error that my repair utility cannot create a file.

My HP Pavillion Notebook 17-e110dx has stopped working for no discernible reason. When I turn it on it says F1 system information and automatically goes to the F1 screen where it displays the sys info. It says press ESC to exit but that does nothing. In fact, no keys do anything. I tried to get to other screens when booting but it won't let me do anything. The laptop is only a few months old and I still have the basic 1-year warranty. Who should I contact to have HP repair it?
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-4065dx laptop with Windows 7 64 bit that will not boot up or go to the Bios screen. When the laptop is turned on, you hear the system fan start, power button light comes on, and the caps lock button starts to continually blink once every three to four seconds. The HDD activity light is also on but is solid red with no blinking. No changes have been made to the laptop and it was working perfectly fine just a few hours earlier. I have attempted the hard reset of the computer and reseating of the memory cards, but the laptop still would not boot.
I have a Dell Inspiron 5521 that is about a year and a half old. In the last two weeks, it's begun to make a beeping noise and will not boot up. As far as I can tell, there's no pattern or end to the beeps -- it's just one beep continuously. The longest I've let it beep before I couldn't stand it anymore and popped the battery out was 25 beeps. There are about two and a half seconds in between each beep. Up until very recently, taking the battery out and putting it back in seemed to solve the problem, but that no longer seems to work.
I've researched beep codes but can't seem to find one matching that description.
Running Windows 7. The BIOS version and date is Dell Inc. A05, 1/3/2013, SMBIOS Version 207.
Tried to do a restore to factory image... Got error code 0x241... Computer is hung up at Windows Boot Manager, going around in circles... Can't accomplish tasks on windows boot manager and can't get out of window...
Acer Aspire One Windows 7 OS Have recovery data on a flash drive
For the past couple of weeks I haven't been able to use my lenovo s230u twist. I can turn it on, I can get to the "lenovo, to interrupt norml startup press enter." But then the screen goes black. Then I get to the windows boot manager, where i get some options. [URL] ....
I'm running on an HP G72-b66US Notebook with Windows 7 64-bit
Every time I boot it up, I see the Hp logo appear and then go away after a few seconds like usual but instead of seeing the Windows logo, theres just a blank black screen command prompt and nothing happens at all. I did a self hard drive test and memory test in bios and they both passed. I tried going into the system recovery option on startup and it does the same as when I start it up and go to that blank command prompt.
I have talked to several HP techs since pc has been returned (after ruining the motherboard with water). The cursor freezes, so I hard power down (many times) and and restart - have been getting blue screen I did install Chrome browser as per one suggestion.
I have had this laptop 2 days and today its doing all sorts of strange things. Several times it has gone black screen (not shutdown, just like it had the battery yanked out and lost power). I had one message that there was a problem and windows had to shutdown and gave an error like 0xa0000001 or something.
But even before i had this i was worried. Some of the first things i did was install some benchmark programs. speccy, cpuid, gpu-z. cpuid doesn't show the temps, but speccy showed the cpu cores all running at 80-90 just with windows sitting doing nothing. it highlights anything over 80 as red. gpu-z shows the dual graphics with similar but about 5 degrees lower temps and shows the amd radeon hd 8670M card as far lower temps. a fan inside seems to be on and when temps get above 95 seems to go into high gear. but i have seen speccy showing temps of 106 C!
i think this is what is causing the laptop to blackout and restart; temps going over 105 for any time at all. in short it runs windows, with occasionally even with psu plugged in dimming of the laptop screen. but try and run something, such as an internet connection, plugging anything into usb ports that is powered from the laptop, or browsing the web - not even watching video or streaming just google search! - and the temps jump up to mid 90s or higher.
i've frequantly had this problem , when i start my laptop ( hp pavilion 15n021se ) on the lock screen when i'm going to click to enter my password , just after moving mouse cruser i get the blue screen saying that the error is " invalid process attachment attempt "
i searched for this error and most results was meeting my thoughts that the cause for this error is the touch pad driver .
i've installed the latest version of the driver (sp64225) , and it doesn't suitable for my windows so i want a previous version of the driver
I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from 8, and it will start up to the main desktop but has a constant loading hourglass running, and cannot click on anything, no icons responsive, only ctrl/all delete. It did say my amd graphics driver couldn't be found. My screen also blinks blue and back to desktop like it is possessed.
I keep getting blue screens complaining about igdpmd64.sys x00000050. I noticed on the day that I suddenly started getting blue screens Windows installed a bunch of windows 7 x64 updates. Does the recent windows updates can cause this?
At times I cannot even reboot normally when it occurs. I have had to restore to a previous version.
My HP Pavillion dv7-6153nr notebook AMD Quad Core computer, using Windows 7 Home Premium is not working..It comes on, trys to boot, but I got Oxc000000f on screen with message that said: The boot system failed because a required device is inaccessable..Then I got the message saying System Disabled and number 58620517.
I've tried a hard reset (pulling battery, unplugging power cord and holding power button for 20 seconds), then reinstalled battery, plugged in power cord and started laptop by hitting esc and checking all of the parameters listed - (running tests offered - all came back okay). I tried to do a safe restart with the F8 key, but it did not accept and went to normal startup. What am I missing?
I can't get the screen to stabilize long enough to get a lock on an icon for opening a program or the main page.
