    the 6 beeps are long and evenly spaced. There is a definite pause when the 6 beeps have sounded. after this pause, the 6 beeps return.

    I have the same issue. The system had 2gb of ram installed. (4 X 512MB DIMM's)

    I loaded 8GB into the slots, (4 X 2GB) and got the error described above. The RAM is brand new from Kingston. I tried replacing the new ram with the original ram but this did not resolve the issue.

    The system is running a 64-bit O/S so the amount of RAM isn't an issue.

    During my troubleshooting I tried just using one stick of the original ram and moving it from slot to slot. (Wash, rinse, Repeat 4 times) No go.

    any ideas?

6 long beeps indicates that there is a problem with the memory, take them out, clean the contacts and the DIMM slots and reseat them.
Hopefully this will resolve the problem, if not new memory may be required
kind regards

    This is WRONG - 6 blinks indicates graphics card problem (memory errors are 5 blinks)

On one of our HP DL360 G5 systems every time after soft reboot the server cannot be booted back. This is 100% reproducible also with Cold boot. Can someone help us find what internal component is...


The simplest way is to check Insight Manager. Type localhost:2301 on a web browser locally. Or, servername:2301 for remote access. You need local Administrator password.
Insight is only available if it was set up with a Smart Start disk. It's that pack that comes with all HP servers, but can be downloaded as well. Best practice is always install.


Don' know what IML is, and ILO has no baring to problems.

There is Insight Manager link on specs.

My buffalo ministation 3.0 external hard drive wont be recognised by my comuter. to be honest i dropped it, but when i plug it into computer green light starts flashing, after a while fashing stops green...


My ministation was doing the same, beeping and flashing green light after a light drop on the floor. Soo... I took my ministation usb drive out of the plastic enclosure and smacked it on the table a few times. Plugged it in and it spun back up!! Now my computer recognizes it and everythings working smooth! I assume something with the drive became jammed and the couple smacks loosened the drive head.. Anyway, if all else fails... beat it!

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

I have a serial ATA mobile disk drive, model # HD-338-SSC. My computer no longer recognizes the device and the power button on the device now displays a red light, next to the standard green light. I tried...


The disk-drive inside the enclosure has "failed".
Open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take it to any computer-store, to buy a compatible replacement. Install the replacement disk-drive.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Ps3 says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


try safemode
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

6 beeps on start up, no video


Without knowing what yo have for a BIOS, it is difficult to diagnose. The below link is a list of beep error codes for different BIOS types. Check your BIOS to see if it is one on the list and see what it means:
