Hi there


Most likely the powersupply is faulty, as indicated by the flashing light, in some cases the problem can be something else. The only way to find our in your case.


Would be to replace the powersupply to another one and see if the problem remains.

On board video is a problem when it goes south. Probably easiest solution would be to install a video card in an open slot and move on. Have done this in the past and kept old box running for a while. VGA video cards can be found for cheap, depending on what you want for display and speed.
Hope this helps.

Good luck with the recovery cd. Most times they don't work, but you can give it a shot. You just put the cd in the drive and boot from it and follow the onscreen instructions. Most likely when you put the cd in the drive, then turn the computer off, turn it back on, the computer will most likely boot from it and start the recovery process. If not when you turn the computer on look at the screen and see which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over.

There might be instructions on the cd, so just look at the label on it.

I notice you are interested in installing a program instead of doing a complete Recovery of the system. Some manufacturers give separate cd's for the operating system and the application programs. If you have one for the application programs that is the one you want to use if you are only interested in reinstalling programs.

You can try reading the manual from HP Compaq's site.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" or "Compaq Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for System Recovery.

If there's no signal on monitor. Try to check the cables connected to your monitor. To isolate the issue, test that cable to a different monitor, or test that monitor to a different computer using a different monitor. By doing those things I mentioned above, you would be able to determine the root cause of the problem "no signal on monitor".

Hello
The laser pickup unit of the DVD player may either be dusty or dirty. Try to clean it, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player and play it until it pays completley. Then check it out.
If this do not help you, the laser pickup unit is faulty. It will be best to muy a new Player, rather than try to repair it, especially to computer DVD players. OK.

Most likely an external video card will work but you may need to disable the built in video card from the BIOS configuration.

The beep and looping the start ..is caused by the ram memory ..Open it up and remove he ram modules without direct handle ..but from teh ends..(due to the static elec.) and insert them back one at the time and try to boot..if it boots up with one of them it means that is working ..try the other and if it fails this one is faulty and need replace or leave it work with the one it has..(issue is if you have minimal memory for windows vista or seven and after that will not be able to work and need windows xp ) ..
If it just beeps long and there is no looping starts..it is the video card to blame ..remove it and use the on board one if you have ..or ..replace the video card ..(in this case it will also display the no signal on screen )
