I have just been given a non-working laptop, HP Pavilion N5412 which does not boot up. On switch-on the fans spin, the HD spins for a short time then stops, and I can hear 3 "squeaks" (rather than beeps), followed a short time later by another 3 squeaks. Is it mice or has the memory died ???
All help appreciated.

click here Here is the full list. 3 beeps would indicate memory. You could try the memory in a different pc to confirm. No idea if they were 3 squeaks

Thank you curio, I intend trying another memory strip when I can borrow one off a friend.
Funny how all your friends disappear into the woodwork when problems crop up !
