  1. My friend has hp pavilion dv6152eu. When you press start button,screen is coming black and you can hear 3 beeps. One long and two short. But sometimes it's starts normaly!!! Everyone says that video card is broken, but if the video card is broken l think it wont start at all,but now sometimes it's starts,sometimes not. ones this site helped me to unlock bios password for my dell,when no one could help me,so l beleve this time as well l will find the profesional advice. And sorry lads for my english :)

    thanks

    Get the beep codes from HP tech support... they tell you what is wrong. It is either the Video Card or memory.. or perhaps just dirt and hair around the cpu... as crud stacks up fast in that model.
    If you have been using that computer as a gamer, it is definitely the video graphics card.

    I have the black screen and the 3 beeps on my DV6152 eu, but it happens ALL the time.
    Worked perfectly last night, came home this evening, and nothing.

    Can someone tell me where I can buy a GFX card (UK), and could I use this opportunity to change the 7200 for a 7300 or 7400 ??

    Thanks

    l'm not sure,but i think that video card is integrated. So the only way is to change motherboard,wich cost a lot :)

    90% of laptops the video is integrated. You need to take this computer to the shop.
