This could be a host of different culprits.
First, if you have more that one memry Dimm in the computer, removed one the restart to see if it boots. If it doesn't boot swap it out with the other memory Dimm. This will eliminate the memory. If it's not the memory, then it may be your hard drive is bad.

If you can get onto a friend's computer, do a Google search for "The Ultimate Boot Disk"
When you find it ,it will give you instructions on how to make the boot cd. Once you create the disk, you can use it to test your system board,hard drive and memory.

Hp compaq pentium 4 not booting, light blinks red 8 times


No solution, but I can give an idea of what's wrong.
In the quickspecs for this computer
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/productbulletin.html#spectype=worldwide&type=html&docid=13029
nder the expended Technical Specifications section, in the 'Serviceability Features of the system' section, under 'Diagnostic LED Explanation Table', it says 8 blinks of the red LED, repeated every 2 seconds, mean "invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode"

It seems that your BIOS ROM become corrupted. The solution to this problem depends on which BIOS you have. Search "invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode" for possible solutions. Restting the CMOS by shorting the two pins on the m/b might just work, but I doubt it in this case. You may have to get the contents of the ROM from HP and re-flash your ROM. Good luck.

The hard disk got damaged and it's dying - the boot take longer because the boot sector was damaged and it had to be relocated.
Create a reinstall disk with the utility HP has installed in the laptop, buy a new hard disk and install it and then reinstall Windows with the disk you created.

Did it display any video at all with boot options or HP logo? Any POST test or beeps after you started the laptop?
Try removing the power ac adapter and battery. then only boot it up with just the AC adapter (no battery).
Good Luck, JAJ
