If you look up the HP diagnostic LED code on the xw8200, if the red diagnostic LED is blinking 4 times signifies a bad power supply.

4x red blinking light on this system means it's "CPU thermal shutdown" this is done when the cpu fan fails to cool the cpu and the computer shuts itself down to keep you from burning up the system.
This could be caused by dirt, hair, dust in the cpu fan or heatsinc or because the fan has failed.
you can blow some canned (dry) air through the fan and heatsinc undernieth it and try to clean it. most likely you will have to take it off to clean it thoroughly or replace the fan. It is about a 15-20 dollar fan and your local computer shot or neighborhood computer guru can replace it in 10 minutes, so dont let then keep your computer longer than a day.
If your computer savy, remove the case, inspect the fan while the computers ON to see if it sounds weird or is not coming on at all. it has usually two retaing clicps the can be difficult to remove with the power supply in the way. so be ready with a philips head screwdriver and a notebook to write down anything you dont want to forget to put back. If you decide to tackle it, post again here after you check the above mentioned things and ill get you a detailed breakdown of how to do it. It real is not too hard.
Regards..

Health lights blinking red


You say the "health lights" blinking red. If this is the power light on the front then it can blink at different rates:-
Flashing red (2 blinks) Thermal event (THERMTRIP#).
Flashing red (3 blinks) No CPU.
Flashing red (4 blinks) Crowbar.
I'm not quite sure what they mean by "Crowbar"
The user manual can be found on this link:-

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.

My hp compaq doesn't work when i branche the cable of alimentation it signe with red


How many times does the red light come on ? It should blink a number of times, then go off for a little while, and start blinking again. The number of blinks within each cycle will help you find out what is wrong:
Number of 1-second red LED blinks followed by 2-second pause, then repeats:
2-processor thermal protection activated
3-processor not installed
4-power supply failure
5-memory error
6-video error
7-PCA failure (ROM detected failure prior to video)
8-invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode

Short beep and red light


Did your Bios Battery Die?

5 short beeps = BIOS recovery successful

Usually means bios has lost settings some how. You have have more significant issues if there was a power surge.

My hp desktop pc wont startup - when i turn iton there are a number of beeps then the light starts blinking red can anyone help?


You need to try and find troubleshooting codes on their website, but the blinking and beeps is actually a code that will tell you exactly what is wrong with it if you know the codes.

There are two lights right under the turn-on bottom and one has a picture of a battery and the other is a picture of a light bulb and this light bulb is blinking red five times in about 3second intervals.


the blinking bulb is the speed or the utility of the ram memory ....if it is blinking then it means that ur pc is utilising memory of ram....if it blinks faster then its using more memory....

4 beeps & 4 flashes mean problem with the power supply. For my experience, most of the time the PSU is good, it is just overloaded.
