Laptop not turning on and beeping

I have a Windows 8 hp pavilion laptop that when I turn it on, all the lights come on but the screen is black. After maybe 30 seconds or a minute it begins beeping. Two shortish beeps, silence, two short beeps, silence... What's wrong with it? Anyone know?

Have a blessed day!

Beep codes usually mean the BIOS has detected a hardware problem. The meaning of the 2 beep code is probably dependent on the model and/or BIOS. If you have the manual, it may tell you there.

My brother's laptop has done this a couple times (minus the beeping part, but the lights would turn on and the screen would stay black). We took out the battery and put it back in and it fixed it. Not all computers are made where you can pull the battery but if yours is than I'd say it's worth a shot!

My computer updated itself to windows 10 last week,since then i have had black screen problem.It basically goes to sleep & you can't wake Checking into it seems to be problematic with many HP & Dell computers. Mine is also a HP Pavilion. I haven't found any solution for problem ....frustrating..
