My hp Compaq DC7900 has 5 beeps with 5 red light flashing does this 3 times. then the fan kicks on. That's all it does. Anyone know what this is?

This is a sign of a pre-video memory error. If your DC7900 has a video graphics card, that card has probably failed or doesn't have enough power. On at least some of HP's Compaq DC7900, the video card uses a PCIe x16 slot.

There are two things to consider when you choose a new video graphics card: 1) it must fit in a slot in your case and 2) your power supply must meet the requirements of the card. The small tower format of the HP Compaq DC7900 came with a 240W power supply. Most modern video graphics cards often need more power. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

My DC7900 SFF beeps 5 time and red led flashing

> 5 beeps

Something is wrong with some of the hardware.

If there is an add-in video-card, make sure that it is correctly "seated" into its slot on the motherboard. It's best to completely remove the card, and then re-insert it.

Similarly, check that the RAM is properly "seated".
If you have more than one stick of RAM on the motherboard, remove some of the sticks, until there is only one stick still connected, and try again.

If there is only one stick of RAM, remove it, and borrow a stick of RAM from a friend, and try it.

Beyond that, take your computer to a computer-store, for professional trouble-shooting.
