Check the keyboard controller,the beep error is signaling a keyboard failure

It is my understanding that 7 beeps during a POST routine indicates a virtual mode exception error.

I checked the Compaq web site and the only audable error codes for the Presario series were six beeps long. There was a listing of nine different error codes, most of which said "Replace the system board". The only 2 that did not say that were as follows:
3 short beeps, a pause, followed by a short and two long beeps = (1)Flash the BIOS (2) change the system board. The second was two short beeps followed by one long, a pause and the same codes repeated again = "Internal Ram is Faulty", "Replace the Processor card". Either way, it does not look good. Hope this helps. Marc
