On an HP Pavilion dv5210us notebook PC, attempting to boot now results in four beeps and no progress yet power button remains lit.

I think this may mean the disk drive is no good and the computer cannot boot.

Is that correct, or is something else wrong?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

More of a superuser question really. That being said, HP's website has a list of beep codes, 4 beeps, 3 beeps, etc., each has a different meaning. – Xorlev Feb 14 '10 at 17:24
