Not certain if this is the most appropriate forum but please advise if not. I dropped my laptop! Hummmph! My HP Pavilion g6 (Win7) still runs but on pressing power button to start, it only gives a continuous series of short beeps and a blank screen - nothing else. My get-around at present is to tap F8 repeatedly. Then, if starting from hibernation, it will start normally. From a complete shutdown it will give me a variety of options and I can select "start normally" and it appears ok. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be and if it's correctable?

Beep codes vary depending on what BIOS you have but I see at least one reference to a continuous beeping as an indicator of an overheating CPU. You probably should check to see if you have knocked the CPU/Chipset heatsink loose.

HP and/or YouTube should have disassembly instructions for your system. Also, check to see if the RAM is fully seated and all other connectors securely plugged in.

Thanks very much MPR. I'm hesitant to take it apart but will follow a youtube guide once I have taken the precaution of doing a back-up! Can't find any reference currently to the continual beeping I'm experiencing - I don't think it can be overheating as the problem is immediately on initial start-up before it has had a chance to get warm. Watch this space!
