Hi.

The computer was in the process of malware cleaning, link http://www.geekstogo...n/page__st__30#

However, suddenly the computer won't start and gave a continuous beep when I switch it on.

It's a HP Pavilion a1000.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I took out the memory and put it back again. It stopped beeping.

Now, the computer won't load the bios. The monitor is black screen.

Try clearing the CMOS.

Note if you have the Truckee motherboard: http://h10025.www1.h...001_title_r0001

That's mot good. Sounds like it may be a dead motherboard.

Remove the motherboard from the case and place it on a piece of cardboard (or any other non-conductive surface). Hook up the PSU, CPU (with heatsink and fan), RAM, video and keyboard, (no drives) and then see if you can get into the CMOS/BIOS Setup.

Let us know what happens.

Hello YellowRubberDuck

Have you checked the video cable for signs of damage such as bent or missing pins in the end connections, are both connections secure (finger tighten only).

Do you have an add on video card or are you using the MBs integrated video port.

If using an add on video card remove it and try the MBs integrated video port.

If you are already using the MBs video port try removing the Ram and powering up the computer, if you get error beeps it suggests that the problem is after the Ram and DIMM slots and unfortunately this is usually the integrated video chip having failed :(

Ok, if I remove the RAM and power on the computer, it will give a continuos beep. With everything intact, the process light will blink several times, followed by a beep. Previously, after the beep, there will be sounds of it loading bios and windows. Now, that beep is like a weak beep, like it's out of battery or something.

I may sound stupid but how to remove the motherboard?

Possibly the POST beep.

Do you mean the HDD activity LEDs (typically orange in colour).
Can I also ask whether or not you have tried another screen so as to rule out the possibility of the present one being bad.
