Power-on Self Test
When your PC starts it performs a Power-on Self Test (POST) to test your hardware configuration for any problems. If a problem is detected during the POST, an error is displayed on your PCs monitor.
If, however, your PC is unable to display an error message (for example, when you graphics controller has failed), it will emit a buzzing sound. This is the pre-boot diagnostics feature. Immediately after the buzzing sound, a series of beeps is emitted. If you hear a series of beeps, you should count them as this will help you detect the cause of the problem.
Number of Beeps
Processor absent, not correctly connected or ZIP socket not closed Power supply is in protected mode No memory, bad memory modules, incompatible memory module Graphics card problem PnP/PCI initialization problem Corrupted BIOS. You need to activate crisis recovery procedure (refer to Updating Your PCs BIOS on pag e30). Defective system board

If you miss the beep code, turn off the PC by pressing the on/off power button for five seconds or more, then listen for the signal again. The e-Buzzer, as well as emitting a beep sequence, also encodes troubleshooting information (such as the PC models, serial number, and failing component) into a coded audio signal. During a support call, this coded signal can then be decoded by the HP Service Provider to provide immediate and effective assistance. For more information on BIOS beep codes and BIOS error codes, refer to the Technical Reference Manual for the HP Vectra XE310 PC, available in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format on the HP support web site at: www.hp.com/go/vectrasupport.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I reinstall my PCs operating system? Why is my PC running slowly/producing strange messages?
Use the HP Image Creation & Recovery CD-ROM provided with your PC (refer to page 26)
If you are connected to a network, the slowness of your PC may
be caused by the network.
Your PC may be infected by a virus. Use an antivirus utility to
erase any viruses. Or, update your PCs BIOS. You can download the BIOS and updating instructions from www.hp.com/go/vectrasupport. Ive been experiencing problems with my PC ever since I installed some new software. What can I do? Can I use USB hardware devices with the operating system preloaded on my PC? How can I find out what hardware and BIOS version are used in my PC? Where can I get information about the latest HP drivers? My PC runs Scandisk when I boot under Windows 98 SE even if the previous shutdown appeared to finish normally. Why? Uninstall the software to see whether this solves the problem. If the problem continues, contact the software manufacturer for help or information on known compatibility problems. Yes. USB is supported by both Windows 98 and Windows 2000. Restart the PC and press Esc during the Power-On-Self-Test (POST). The BIOS version will be displayed at the top of the screen. From HPs website: www.hp.com/go/vectrasupport Sometimes your PC may appear to shutdown successfully when it has not. In these cases the operating system thinks that Windows has been shutdown incorrectly and runs Scandisk. A solution for this problem can be found at:
Why doesnt my PC start when using a console switch? Why does my PC emit a long series of beeps during the boot process when my screen remains blank? How can I use the LEDs on the front panel to troubleshoot my PC?
This only applies to switches that internally connect both power lines of the PS/2 mouse and keyboard.To solve the problem, use one mouse for each PC connected to the console switch. The beeps are created by the HP e-Diagtools pre-boot diagnostics utility. For more information, see page 19. The LEDs on the front panel indicate the various states your PC is in. The On/Off LED indicates the power modes status of your PC. The three states are: green (PC is on), blinking green (PC is suspended) and off (PC is off). The Lock LED indicates whether your PC is locked or not. The two states are: orange (PC is locked) and off (PC is not locked). This is because Windows NT SP6a uses 99% of the CPU. This issue has been acknowledged in the Microsoft knowledge base (Ref Q266208 available on:
I have an event log that says that the RPC hung. What can I do?
Why are the beep codes from the e-DiagTools pre-boot diagnostics feature reporting a null serial number and PCID on my PC?
If the PC is unplugged and then plugged in again, both the serial number and PCID are lost (reset to zero). If, subsequently, a pre-boot failure occurs before the BIOS has been able to boot the PC (and refresh the serial number and PCID in the micro-controller), you will see a null serial number and PCID in the Virtual Call Assistant. The suggested workaround to this issue is to communicate the serial number and model information over the telephone.
Problems with power management
My PC hangs when coming back from suspend under Windows 98. What should I do?
Occasionally, under Windows 98 SE, the PC does not wake from standby mode. To solve the problem, open the power management window by clicking Start Settings Control Panel Power Management. In the System Standby field, enter a value that is smaller than the value in the Turn Off Monitor field. This is a known issue with Windows 98 ACPI. See
My parallel port did not work after waking up from standby mode S1 under Windows 98 Hitting a key on my keyboard does not always wake up the PC. Why?
Your PC may be in a deep sleep mode. Normally, you can wake the PC by pressing any key or the On/Off button. However, the operating system can disable the keyboard. To enable the keyboard, right-click My Computer and select Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Right-click on Keyboard, select Properties and check the Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby checkbox.
Problems with recovery cd-roms
When using the Image Creation and Recovery CDROM, the PC stops. Why? Why is my PC not booting from the CD-ROM?
When the BIOS setup field "State after power failure" is set to "Off" the PC stops and does not reboot correctly. To solve the problem, manually power on the PC and continue the recovery process. It is likely that some BIOS-level settings (boot device order, security settings etc.) do not have correct values. Restart your PC and enter the Setup program by pressing F8 and then selecting the option to enter Setup). Change the incorrect settings, then try booting from the CD-ROM again. It is also possible that the CD-ROM drive is not connected properly.
Problems with LANs
I get an error message in Windows 98 when changing the name of the workgroup. What can I do? After changing the Workgroup Name in the Network Properties window your computer will prompt you to reboot. After rebooting, reboot a second time to fix the problem.
Problems with storage devices
I have a problem when I try to boot on my ZIP device. What can I do? The Zip device attached to the parallel port of my PC doesnt work under Windows 98. What should I do? Your Zip device must be installed on the secondary IDE channel as master and your CD driver as slave. In addition, in the BIOS setup, it must be placed before the floppy drive in the boot order. This is due to an incompatibility problem between the Iomega driver and a patch released by Microsoft for another problem. If you experience this problem, you need to uninstall the Microsoft patch by typing the following command at a DOS command prompt: Start Programs MS-DOS prompt
%windir%\rundll.exe% windir%\system\setupx.dll,InstallHinf SectionDefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\qfe\win98.se\242939un.inf

HP Setup Program
The HP Setup program allows you to view and change the configuration of your PC. Sometimes you may also need to enter the Setup program to reconfigure your PC after installing new hardware components. The Setup program has online help to guide you through any changes you have to make.
Entering the Setup Program
To enter the Setup program, press F8 when the HP logo appears on screen at startup, then select Enter Setup from within the list of options.
Setup Program Menus
Your PCs Setup program contains a series of menus, which are selected with the right and left arrow keys on your keyboard. You can select an item within a menu with the up and down arrow keys. When an item is selected, Setup displays a description of its function on the right of the screen. The Setup program contains the following menus:
Main - for basic information on your configuration including processor speed, the amount of installed RAM, BIOS version, installed drives, time and date. Advanced - for setting Advanced Features.
Security - for controlling booting from the network, protecting hardware and setting passwords to restrict access to your computer. It is possible to set an Administrator and/or a User password. The Administrator can change all settings and the User can only change the date and time. Setting a password will, by preventing access to the Setup menus, protect your computer's configuration. Boot - for enabling/disabling quick boot and booting from the network, or choosing your boot device order and priority. You can select the order of the devices from which the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) attempts to boot the operating system. During the POST (Power On Self-Test), if the BIOS is unsuccessful at booting from one device, it will try the next one on the Boot Device Priority list until an operating system is found. The default boot device is the floppy disk. Power - for selecting power-management modes to reduce the amount of energy used after specified periods of inactivity (for non-ACPI operating systems only). If your computer stays idle for a certain amount of time, your system switches from Full Power Mode to Sleep Mode in order to reduce power consumption. In Sleep Mode, graphics, the processor and hard disks are stopped. A user event, such as from the mouse or keyboard, can cause the system to resume to Full Power Mode within a few seconds. Other events may also wake up the system: a ring on an external modem, a signal sent by an expansion card (network card etc.). Exit: for leaving the Setup program.
Setting System Defaults
The Setup program changes system behavior by modifying the power-on initialization parameters. Setting incorrect values may cause system boot failure. If this occurs, press the F9 key while you are in the Setup program to load the Setup program's default values or select Load default values for all settings in the Exit menu of the Setup program. This should enable the computer to boot properly. Note If an Administrator password is set, you need to enter the password to set system defaults. HP strongly recommends you make a note of any changes you make while in the Setup program.
