3 Long beeps 3 LED blins on Caps Lock key w/black screen

Question: 3 Long beeps 3 LED blins on Caps Lock key w/black screen

Hello everyone. I'm attempting to help diagnose my sister-n-laws HP 15 laptop. I've searched high and low for an answer but all I'm finding is people with different types of "3 beeps". They either have 3 "short" beeps or 1 short with 2 long or something like that. I can't find ANYTHING with 3 long beeps. It does 3 long beeps twice and then nothing. I can hear the hard drive spinning too. No HP or BIOS documentation ever mentions anything about 3 long beeps either. Does anyone have any idea what is going on with this thing?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My friends dv7-1135nr is not posting. The num lock and caps lock led light will flash once every 2 seconds at the same time. According to HP this issue is a " not functional" cpu. I am ordering another cpu for 16.00 off ebay because this is cheaper opposed to ordering another board. Anyone else have this issue? And if so did you fix it ?

Answer:black screen and caps lock blinking

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. I am afraid this issue cannot be resolved remotely and it is a bit difficult to understand and know in details what exactly you removed/replaced. Since it started to occur after this change obvious this is the cause. Please, review these artciles :>> http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01732674>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01732674and follow the appropriate instruction for your specific situation.  If they don't help, you can consult with HP Service center or bring the computer to HP authorized service center where the technicians will probably be able to help you solve the problem. If you cannot find a troubleshooting solution, contact HP Customer support for further assistance or to have the computer serviced.

my father left his computer turned off for a few days and now it refuses to start up. we currently have a black screen with the caps and num locks flashing once every 3 seconds. the wireless button has remained red (normally blue when system is operating) and the fan can be heard carrying on its normal duties. ive tried hard reseting and cleaning the ram chips to no success and applied a hairdryer to the fan to make sure the heat sink was functioning. google tells me it might be a BIOS issue or the GPU may have something wrong with it but i lack the technical knowledge to investigate this. any help would be appreciated

I have a HP Envy Dv6. It was having problems overheating so i opened it up to clean the fan and air intake. I put it all back together and now I have a black screen. I can hear the hard drive spin but the fan only comes on sometimes. If i blow in the intake when the fans not running it starts to spin. The caps lock led is flashing constanly at a rate of 1 second, no pause, just 1 second intervals. Did i kill the fan or is the flashing telling something else. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I put my computer to sleep last night and when I went to turn it on this morning it started to power but nothing happened.  The screen is black and the lights for caps and number lock are blinking.  They blink continuously with 4-seconds in between.  I've tried a hard restart, as well as removing the RAM and wireless card (per other posts for similar problems).  Does anyone have any idea what I should do next?  I'm a graduate student and hate to admit it but I can't be without a computer for very long :/

Got a HP Probook 450 G0 here, which is powering up with no screen display. No BIOS, no nothing. It isn't the backlight. You can hear fans spinning up, the Caps Lock key starts flashing, but nothing else happens. I've removed RTC/BIOS battery, nothing. Removed and swapped RAM, nothing. Plugged into TV with HDMI, nothing.  I'm starting to suspect it's something more complex - a motherboard problem, a BIOS problem, or a CPU problem. I seem to remember older HPs having Caps Lock blink codes for reporting issues, but I can't see any info about that for the ProBooks. Any ideas?

Hello. I am trying to fix an HP G62-367DX Notebook PC.
Operating sys: Win 7, 64bit, AMD Turion(tm) 530II Dual-Core Processor, 4GB, 2.50GHz. I had this laptop since December of 2010 and on June of 2013 is when I used my notebook PC and was initially of no use. I have been working on my laptop on and off since. I am not afraid to open the sucker up and get this thing up and running.

The problem started out with what most ppl call it, the "blue screen of death". Like most ppl, I did ignore the blue screen and did a restart which brought me to the normal Windows screen and then it would start back up just fine. I found this in Device Manager's (Hidden Files):
Non-Plug and Play Drivers
-! ehdrv
-! epfwwfp
-! Security Processor Loader Driver
I am not sure if it has anything to do with what it was the blue screen situation, but I tried searching on the net on what it all meant and to see if I was able to fix it, but before I was able to do something about it, the blue screen kept popping up and it was getting worse.

The problem progressed to where on Windows startup it would just stop there, blue screen would pop up and of course I had to restart it and do an F8 key press for Safe Mode. I had to work on Safe Mode for a good couple of weeks before I can figure out the problem/s. I believe I had went into the system and found out it had something to do with some kind of error... *sigh* I did write it down, but that was like a month ago and I am unable to locate my ...

Model CQ61 319WM This is a friend's computer.  Yes, it's old.  But, it was working fine until it went into sleep mode last night.  Hasn't come up since. Searches took me to this HP support page.  Win+B and Power on does not show the BIOS restore screen.  It just shows the same black screen.  It mentions trying more than once.  I tried at least a half dozen times.  Removed the battery and unplugged the power for a few seconds prior to some of the tries. The BIOS download (sp48895.exe) does not provide the option to format a USB drive as bootable.  I searched around and created my own bootable thumb drive.  Then, copied the BIOS files onto it. Unfortunately, that method also uses the Win+B and power on to bring up the boot order screen.  All I get is black. There are a bunch of "black screen" threads on here.  I've read several of them.  But, I haven't found any others that appear to apply to this model. Suggestions appreciated. Drake Christensen

Hi, I have HP Pro X2 410 G1 and when pushing the ON/OFF Button,it vibrates as it would be,and instead of turning on the display and displaying the HP logo and so on,it keeps the display black with no led (like it is when the tablet is turned off) and starts blinking white light on CAPS LOCK button,it blinks 1 time,after 3-4 second once more time,after 3-4 second once more time and continues doing so until I turn the tablet off. I turn it off by holding the ON/OFF button for several seconds,and it turns off as usually does when everything is ok (a light is blinking 1 time on the lower middle of the screen ribs and the power goes off) .So I think it actually turns on,but the screen is not showing anything and the system realizes that something is wrong and gives me alert with that blinking on CAPS LOCK button ... I have removed the touchscreen and using the tablet with its HP Pavillion x2 dock station as a notebook.The screen is moving, because the touchscreen must have been fastened to it, but I have removed the touchscreen and only the screen is left.there are times that it turns on normally,but for about 70-80% situations it gives the problem above PLEASE HELP ME TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM

After normal use and simply closing my laptop, it will not reboot.  I have had this happen before and was able to reboot by restarting. Following various forum instructions, I've removed the battery and attempted recovery from discs several times.  I've connected the unit to my smart tv, but cannot see my computer screen on the tv monitor.   What's happening now: When I turn on the laptop, the caps/num lock LEDs blink once.  There's power, but the fan seems quieter than usual.  It has been a little loud and running a little warmer recently.  The light at the power cord is white, and the light on the touch pad is on/white.  The wifi light and sound light are both red. Any advice?

I have an x61t that when it locks for screen saver password and you have to CTRL ALT Delete the relog back on. the CAPS lock on the onscreen keyboard indicates on but it's not. 1. Log into the tablet.2. The screensaver would lock the tablet.3. Press Ctrl Alt Delete to get to the logon screen.4. The on screen keyboard would show the Caps Lock key as on but it wasn't. If they pressed the Caps Lock key it would then be on.5. The users don't press the Caps Lock key now, even though it is being displayed as on, and they can logon OK. I cannot recreate this problem on another X61tablet and this behaviour happens even when the notebook is in a docking station with an external keyboard.  anybody seen this error before?

Hi there,
 
My partner Tracys HP DV6 laptop is refusing to boot. The machine appears to power up as normal, the power, volume and wifi lights above the keyboard light up as does the 'on' light at the front left corner and the fan can be heard running but the screen remains blank with no flickers of anything and no sign of even a cursor. The caps lock/num lock* lights repeatedly give two blinks in time with each other.
 
* I say num lock light. I think this is what it's normally referred to although num lock is not the nearest button. It's at the top right hand corner of the screen next to the 'End/page up' buttons.
After a bit of googling I have tried doing the hard reset (switch off, remove battery and power cable, leave for 30s then hold down power button for 1 min before rebooting). I also tried connecting an external monitor via the vga socket and to a TV set via the HDMI output. None of these approaches have yielded any results. My googling has also revealed the two blinks from caps lock/num lock are the code for a BIOS corruption fault.
 
I found instructions for restoring the BIOS here...

I was going to follow the instructions there but wanted to check here first in case there was a more appropriate course of action I should take first.

My Compaq CQ62-209WM was working great until a couple of weks ago.  When I turned it on the screen stayed black, the caps lock light blinks once every 5 seconds, and the wifi light stays orange.  Read on this forum of others with similar problems.I tried a hard reset and it worked the first time, long enough for me to back up the important stuff on my hard drive, but did not work the second time (or any time I have tried it since then).One blink indicates CPU failure so I ordered a new CPU and thermal material, dismanteled the unit and replaced the CPU and thermal material this evening. Still have black screen and blinking lights - still one blink every 5 seconds. Tried hard reset, no change.Any suggestions?

Hi @micwtx ,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM Notebook and issues with the flashing lights and not starting correctly. Here is a link to computer does not start. It has the LED blinking codes and suggests that it could be your System Board. Have you tried to reseat the memory and HDD? (it is in the document) Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Hi, First, with reference to the Service Manual on the link below - remove and re-seat your memory module(s). If the above makes no difference try the following. Again, with reference to the Manual on the link below, remove one of your memory modules and then see if the notebook will boot.  If it doesn't, try the same module, but in the other slot.  If is still doesn't boot, try the other memory module in both slots, to see if any combination will allow the notebook to start normally. The procedure for removing these modules is detailed starting on Page 63 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Regards, DP-K

Hey all.

A friend of my parents recently gave them this PC without any background and they gave it to me. When trying to boot it up, after a few seconds it just gives 6 long beeps alongside 6 orange flashes of the power LED. After that it goes back to blue, and nothing is displayed on the screen. After a lot of looking around people seem to say it is a graphics card issue, but this PC does not have a graphics card and never did (warranty seal was still on it when I got it). I have tried two different graphics cards in it (HD 6950 and GT 520) and both graphics cards along with integrated graphics still give the 6 beeps. Some sources say it's the Secure Boot that needs to be disabled in the BIOS, but I can not get into the BIOS. Even by pressing F2 or F10 on startup, it still has the same result of going straight to the 6 beeps and blank screen. I have tried reseating the CPU (i3-3220), swapping it out for an i5-2500, trying different sticks of RAM, and different hard drives. Still nothing, every time booting up it gives the 6 beeps. Any help?

I built a pc last year and i've had many problems. the latest problem came along when i changed pc case and installed a new PSU. When i turned it on all i got was long repeating beeps and the monitor wouldnt turn on. After hundreds reboots, crashing, switching off, restarting it finally booted and worked normally. Ive had it again perhaps once after then and now im getting it again. Ive noticed this happens when i change/remove/add a piece of hardware or just switch the psu off for a while which is odd.

Last night i heard my psu had a slight buzz which has happened before with no problems turning it off at the back, thinking it would disturb my sleep i just switched it off at the back. I got back from school today and switched it on and im stuck with the deeps from hell again. I switch it on, i get the beeps i have to hold the power for 4 seconds to crash it. I can push restart, this leaves me with either the beeps again or no beeps at all with the system still on. I then managed to get it to load up windows, after 2 mins it just froze, couldnt do anything, i had to hold power for 4 seconds again, turned it on again and the beeps were back, tried again, loaded, 2 mins, lockup.

after the repeating process of beeps it loaded to the winfast logo at boot, stopped there, tried again, loaded windows and i took the chance to back some things up. I then ran CHKDSK and that worked. Then i went into hardrive properties and tools and told it to check the disk on the next restart,... Read more

Answer:[SOLVED] long beeps on startup, black screen, lockups

Beep codes vary depending on the BIOS that is installed. Beep codes in general mean either a main componant such as processor, motherboard, ram or video card are defective or not pushed in to the slots completely.

For this issue reat all circuit cards in motherboard. If beeps continue than remove all ram except one card and boot. If the beeps are gone than you can use that ram slot for process of elimination to test each memory module.
If all memory cards work in slot 1 than try one memory stick in each slot while leaving the other slots empty to determine which memory slot is bad.

Hello, Any certain meaning for LED caps-lock blinking (white) one-two,  one-two?No change in frequency,  no beeps. I found a page about the Caps-lock LED blinking sequences.*This one is blinking in two-times sequences.    But on the HP "legend" to interpret the blinkingI did not see a matching interpretation for that one-two,  one-two,  sequence.[The closest ones were 4.2  and 4.3 but I have "no beeps" and these are only two blinks (not followed by a slower nor faster blinks).] This is for an HP split x2  tablet/notebook.  *http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Split-13-g100-x2-PC/5405588/model/5447133/document/c01732674

Hi,

how to disable Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages?



I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that. I made some googling and found other fix it with Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication set to 0, but I dont have it in registry. Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Every time I press caps lock, to turn on or turn off, I can't keep typing until some process completes. The icon for capson/capsoff comes onscreen, and while it's there I can't keep typing, until some time passes. Very frustrating!
 

Answer:caps lock function takes a long time and bogs the computer

Well, I have no idea what caused this but the tablet buttons (even the on/off button) the lights for caps lock and scroll lock as well as the automatic screen orientation change when I flip it to be a tablet have stopped working.Also the screen does not turn off anymore when the lid is closed. Reinstalled pretty much all of the drivers, no effect.Any ideas? Is this thing already broken?

Answer:X41 tablet buttons + scroll lock and caps lock lights + screen orientation change stopped working!

well, SOMETHING is broken.. though it would seen unlikely it is hardware.. a question: did you load anything new just before this happened..?anything at all..scanner drivers or printer drivers or a new application..? OH!, welcome to the lenovo community..!

Good afternoon,

I just did a clean install of 7 to fix errors with my laptop, and it fixed one, but not the other main issues,
My caps lock, and number lock button on the keyboard don't have a light on it and the pop up that is supposed to pop up doesn't show up on screen.
I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Lenovo Y720 So, when I hit caps ock or num lock an on screen display tells me whether capslock or num ock has been pushed. While I appreciate it is helpful for some, in my case it become a hinderance. You need to remove "num lock" for single key print screen request, and if I have a short time frame, I am stuck without being able to screenshot until the num lock indicator goes away.  How do I turn off the on screen display.  Now, before you send me to the previously asked questions of similar nature, I have tried. There is no "display settings" in Control Panel. There is no "advanced display settings" on the settings panel. And there is no way to control it through NVIDIA or Intel graphics settings (that I can see).  Thanks kindly.

Welcome to Seven Forums markrheuer. A couple of possibilities, starting with easiest.

Start> In search box type keyboard> Under Control Panel, click on Keyboard> IF your Keyboard properties has a Key settings tab> Key Settings List> Double click on Caps Lock> Display Caps Lock status on screen> Click the check mark box> Finish

If no key settings tab, you can make your screen flash when you have Caps lock on

Start> In search box type ease of access> Enter> Make the keyboard easier to use> Check the box next to Turn on toggle keys> Apply> OK> Back to Ease of access main page> Use text or visual alternatives for sounds> Turn on visual notifications for sounds (Sound Sentry)> Choose visual warning> Apply> OK

I see where some Dell users have had success changing a registry key. Suggest always backing up your registry 1st

Hello all- I updated the BIOS to 2.26 a while ago and ever since then there's no on-screen indication of caps lock on/off, screen brightness or volume when I change it. Since it seemed to be affected by BIOS, I updated again to 2.27 just now, but the problem persists. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help. EDIT: Just fixed my own problem. I needed to update the Hotkeys Feature Integration by downloading the utility thingy from this page. Probably wasn't a BIOS thing after all.

In one of my pc's whenever i hit the cap or num locks keys it displays it doing so on my monitor.

Now normally i wouldn't care much for this but not all my keyboards for my computers have those green lights that light up when i enable the caps or num lock keys.

I am guessing its something that came installed with my computer when i bought it from newegg, any idea of a similar software that i can install in my other computers.

I like it displaying on my monitor when i turn on my caps or num locks keys
 

Answer:On screen caps lock display?

It would help folks here to know more about the computer in question. Brand and model if it is a commercial PC (Dell, HP, etc.) and operating system, or if a home built computer the motherboard make and model, and the operating system used.

If running Windows 7, type Keyboard into the Run box, and select Keyboard from the list that appears. See if there is a Key settings option. If so, select it, and find the Key Settings List. I can't recall where exactly, but somewhere in the list you will find "Display Caps Lock status on screen" . . . make sure it is unchecked. Not sure if this will fix your issue/s or not.

What kind of keyboard are you using? The display issue might be a function of your keyboard, and you might have to adjust the behavior in any software that came with it.

I hope this is in the right area... I have been using a Lenovo Flex 3 for...about 6 months now, I think. Maybe a few more than that, but overall - you get the picture. As far as I can tell, this link details the machine I'm using. I've taken pains to ensure that my machine is configured the way I like it - some of it was easy, some of it not so much. I've customized the coloration, put up a new background, reinstalled the Start menu because I despise Windows 8/8.1's "start screen", disabled the touch screen due to my habit of shifting position and then needing to adjust the angle of the screen... I mean you know how it goes. All the little tweaks that really make it your machine, right? One such tweak would be disabling this **bleep** popup that shows up EVERY time I hit caps lock.

Hi, khdphd, and welcome to the forum....

They say they cannot download the file? I have always seen every HP that uses those hkCMD.exe files to be able to download them for that computer in the event of a reinstall.

Did you look at software available for download for your computer? If it is there, then you can download it, uninstall the current version, reboot and install that one and it should load the original files back in place.

Try uninstalling hkcmnd from Programs and Features (it may be named something a bit more fancy)

And I know what HP *said* - but look anyway.

Quite randomly, the indicators have disappeared and I'm not sure why.  The buttons still work, but no indicator.The on screen indicators for the camera and microphone have disappeared as well, though volume and brightness still work and appear on screen. I've tried going to Screen resolution-->Advanced Settings>On-Screen Display and making sure they were enabled; as well as disabling and re-enabling them several times to no avail.

Answer:Caps lock on screen display after sleep or hibernation?

Hi Michaelalex17,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 

It is a default setting which shows the ?Caps OFF? for a few seconds, because there is an option to show always or show for a few seconds, we cannot disable the individual on-screen popup display.
If you are looking for the setting. You can go to graphic properties to change, right click on the desktop and go to screen resolution ? Advance settings ? click on On-screen display tab and make the changes for your convenient.

I'll be in a game, and press caps. The window will minimize. This has never happened before.

Also, when I click my cursor into a bar to type, then press caps, the blinking cursor thing goes away, and I must re click into the bar to continue typing.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

My daughters laptop will not start up.  Not sure if it's a screen issue or something else.  When you power it on you can hear it running and the power button lights up but nothing happens.  There is a green light flashing on the caps lock but that is all we get.

One of my clients has a T410 with Windows 7 64-bit installed.  When he turns on his caps lock, the indicator lights up and the same indicator appears on the screen and then stays present until the caps lock is turned off.  When caps lock is turned off the indicator disappears in about 3 seconds.  My other T410s are not experiencing this issue.  What can we do to change the indicator so that it only appears on-screen for 3 seconds?  I appreciate your help.

Answer:Caps lock indicator remains on screen at all times

I have checked with my clients who report this.  Both laptops are model 2522-2BU and it happens whether they use the laptop keyboard or an external keyboard.

I've been having this issue for sometime now. . . My laptop allows me to turn it on and once I do the screen remains blank while the caps lock is flashing once every 3-4 seconds and the f10 key has a orange led light on. After leaving it on for a minute or 3 hoping that the screen turns on, the computer then just turns off. My laptop has been taken to repair shop but still has the same issues.  I have also tried about almost everything i have read online on the forums with others who have the same issue.  The weird thing is i'll pay no attention to my computer for about a day or two after constantly trying to get it to work and it'll then suddenly turn on with a message saying that there is a thermal issue with the fan or something.?  I would appreciate if someone would help me fix this situation so that i can no longer deal with it in the future. Thanks!
