My e-machine t-3616 makes a beeping noise when I try to power on. It will not power on unless I plug, and unplug numerous times then finally it will start up.

If you've never changed the battery in your computer, I would try that first. It is sort of like the batteries that you would see, say in a bathroom scale, and it keeps your system information such as time and date current even when your machine is unplugged. After five years, it may simply be too drained to do its job.

Computer turns ON but there is no display?

Drain it! You might be surprised that one day as you turn your computer on, it shows no display. It can be caused by electrical charges on the motherboard, I do not specifically know how it affects the display but in case this happens to you try to do a Power Drain. It's easy, first, take the battery out from the laptop and unplug the AC Adapter if it is connected(for desktops, unplug power cord from the CPU/tower) then press and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds. plug power supply back into your system and turn it back on. There goes your display once again.

Kensington power outlset beeping

the fit on the end of the battery adapter basically shorts and back fires and holds electricity in the battery making it unable to connect at the wall and flow again .... so you have to be able to Release the bent up or saved electricity the battery retained... by either plugging it in at the same time your finger can turn your computer on generating an instant flow.. this is very touchy area...but this morning after many times of doing it this above way i simply plugged my new iphone into the usb side socket to create a flow ( i have nothing that fits the adapters) and with the first plug from phone to usb port WALA xox I've been doing this off and on for 2 years since i first purchased it but it has never ever charged my battery ~ it's junk product but nothing else was available to purchase

On powering up the front lights flicker and a clicking noise is heard but nothing happens ie will not boot up.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

Laptop won't turn on and charging light is not orange when plugge

I had the exact same problem. Here is the fix: remove the keyboard, battery and CMOS battery then press and hold the power button for a min. Plug just the power in then try to turn it back on. If it doesnt remove more perhiprels such as DVD, memory, hard drive then do the power button hold cycle again. After it turns on, remove the power then add the perhiprels you need to boot to BIOS, i.e; keyboard & memory. Go to BIOS then plug in the battery while the laptop is running. Unplug the power to see make sure laptop runs on the battery. Turn off then add the rest of perhiprels then plug it in power again before closing all up. If the orange light problem comes back repeat above! OR you can take it to your HP dealer to have it fixed under warranty if you are lucky. Then never buy HP ****!

Hope it helps...
