Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Computer will not boot. As soon as the power is switched on the front; on switch turns oranges and flashes with a high pitch beep sound, alarm. No booting happens. No bios or windows 7 booting. Checked, all fans are working. Power, CPU , graphics, case.
If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

SOURCE: gx260 pc wont start
Either the motherboard or power supply are bad. I've had both be the cause of the problem. Check the motherboard for bulging and discolored capacitors. The same can be true of the power supply.
To the guy above who said his were out of warranty. If the motherboard is the cause of the problem, Dell will replace it until near the end of January. Just call them up and try to convince them. We are an educational customer, but everyone should be able to get it. It's a known defect.

SOURCE: No display and wont boot
A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Power supply is easier and cheaper to replace.

Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Usually the beeps ore associated with ram memory failure ..or video card not being well plugged or being faulty ..To stat check the ram memory ..Just remove them all ..(if you have more modules) ..and after that insert one by one and try to boot ..If it still makes the same noise (beep ) and each one ..it means the ram is ok ..and the fault from other way ..If it starts with only one one ..it means the other is faulty ..Anyway ..usually the ram memory does not damage itself ..but most likely does not make contact well ..so plug them well back in the slot and try again ..
If it always make that beep ..try to see if you have a pci or agp or video card ..and if you do ..remove the card and post it back ..Usually if you remove it and you have a on board card ..you can already boot up if the card is faulty ..and use the card on board until you get another card ..
(the idea is that for the ram fault the beep is short and in some kinda loop ..but if it starts the fan and keep beeping it is the video card to blame .It is either out of slot and does not making contact well or is damaged and need to be replaced.
