Xw 8200 workstation no work, red light and beeping

I have an HP xw 8200 workstation. When I push start It looks normal for about 3-5 seconds then I get a red power light, and a beeping can be heard. This system is a few years old and I just got it from my employer that just upgraded. Does this prob sound like a bad power supply? Or my SCSI Controller? Also the monitor act like its not connected, as well as the key board. The system had a wipe performed before I got it, so I even tried to boot from a xp os disk, still no work. However, it did try to read the disk but acts like it cant read it.
All fans are working, all conectors seem to be connected and it looks like everything is still in the cpu. The disk works in my other computers.
All my other computers are IDE so swaping parts won’t work accept power supply which depending on what you suggest was my next step.

Ps3 not connecting to tv, all cables in the right place, was working fine for 3 years until now! usual set up not working so have tried all others but can't get the ps3 to work on any channel


does the ps3 power up and seem to work as normal?

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!
try this
