If you have AMI BIOS this indicates that there is a memory failure. You can press pause on the keyboard as the POST page flashes up which will allow you to read the page, which may give you a chance to see any error messages that show.

this is normal its just going though the post checks,you can change it in the bios to skip checks and most shop bought computers like hp show a hp screen instead of what its checking which again you can change in the bios to make it do the full tests,dont worry about it.
