If it's blinking that means it's transferring data. I wouldn't be concerned unless you either saw a constant light or no light.

I have 4 hard disk connected one win server 2003 R2 standard , one of the hard disk is flashing orange and green but others hard disks is blinking green , so could i have a solution ?


It's a predictive failure. Check RAID. It needs to be 1 or 5. Reseat the drive and let it rebuild array. HP might ask you to flash it, if under warranty.

Replace it if amber light comes back.

The green light on front of my HP computer comes on for a couple seconds and then it goes to red light blinking and beeping try to turn off and back on several times and go right back to blinking red


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Blue light blinking on disk rather than green


the blue light blinking means that the hard drive is being accessed by the ACU (array configuration utility), it can be locally or remote
The light illuminates so that you can identify the disk that you are selecting from the utility.
it does not show any degraded status or possible error

HP Laptop(Compaq nx6310) Lights are blinking


You did not specify if you are talking about the lights below the screen or the ones at the front of the palm rest.
Have a look at pages 1-2 to 1-5 in the HP support manual (link).
The description might help you.

It seems to me that you are talking about the battery light (which is amber when the battery is charging) and the light for the drive (which is blinking when the hard drive or optical (CD/DVD) drive is in use.)

Just as a side note: if your hard drive light is constantly blinking, although the CD/DVD drive is empty AND you are not saving or accessing data - this could be a caused by not having enough RAM installed. In this case, the excessive memory has to be written to your hard drive, which could result in excessive blinking of that light.

Computer problem


Hello,

If you are referring the green or amber light on the front of the case, it could either be the power led or the hard drive activity led. If its the hard drive activity light, it usually just blinks when a program accesses the hard drive.

Thanks
