The computer power supply may have failed. Do you get the "post beep"?
If not- remove the BIOS battery, move the jumper to "Clear BIOS" . Insert BIOS battery, and try to boot. Put jumper back to normal position and try boot again. If you do not get the post beep, swap power supply for a known good one, and try boot again. If it still does not boot and give you a post beep, look to see if there is a removable BIOS chip- pop it out and put it back in.place, this will clean the terminals. Go through and reset BIOS, as above, and try boot. If the system is functional, it should now boot up, but prompt for you to run the setup program.
If it does not boot, the problem is relating to motherboard/processor.
There are a couple of ways to get around this. You will need to remove the side panel from your PC and have a look at the system board. On the board you will see a small disc shaped battery and you should also see a small jumper near by. You can clear the password by either remove the battery for 60 seconds (guaranteed to work if it's just a BIOS password) or by moving the little jumper one pin over and pressing the power button. After this you can replace the battery or move the jumper back to it's original position and you should be free to enter the BIOS.
Since your green light comes on momentarily, you may have hope. Look in your manual or on Dell website to how to reset your BIOS chip to the default. You do this with the power off, unplugged. There is a 3 pin jumper which should now be in the normal mode. Moving the jumper to the clear mode for 30 sec. should bring the Bios to default. Should the monitor stay on, you will have to set the time and date and maybe a couple other tweeks. Good luck.
HI...the motherboard of your computer has a BIOS which needs to be reset. By resetting:
1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord
2. remove the button battery(CR2032) on the motherboard
3. right next to the battery has a jumper
4. move the jumper over by one pin and wait 10 seconds.
5. move back the jumper and put in the battery
6. finally, power up the computer
First and make sure you plugged the speakers into the correct port in the back of the computer. Green port is normally the port you want to plug into. 9 times out of 10 this is the issue. Next, try reinstalling the driver, by going to HP web site and downloading the most current driver. If you don't feel comfortable doing so, I am sure they have a return policy for repairs done incorrectly.
There are many jumpers on the motherboard, drives, and such. Is there a title to the error that might possibly identify which jumper they are referring to? I have one for overclocking, one for chassis intrusion, one for ide mode in SATA, and on, and on. What does it say "before" "turn off power..." is there some kind of error name? My suggestion, get the manual for the motherboard, adn look on the page that has the picturial diagram, and identifies all the components on the board. It will indicate all the jumpers, and the default positions. It shouldn't say that though, unless something has changed. So, either you changed the jumper's original position, OR, you changed some hardware configuration that has made your current jumper position erroneous.
How long are the beeps? If they are shortish then it suggests that the ram on your motherboard isnt working properly. Try removing it and reseating it. Make sure all the power is turned off before doing this.
Also there is a jumper located near the bios battery for resetting the bios. Move that to the clear position then back again after a minuter or so. That will put it back to default setting.
How did the problem start? Had you been adjusting anything in the bios at all?
