When i go into bios screen it seems that the screen cuts off the rest of the bios screen and i cannot move my mouse past what looks like a refresh symbol that is in orange. I know there are stuff to press...

Hey there,

Sorry to hear about your trouble. I have not seen this problem before but I suggest you reset the CMOS. If you find your way into the motherboard face you will find a small square with a circle in the middle of it. It is the CMOS reset trigger. This will rest the BIOS ans hopefully bring you back to full screen. Do your research and be careful. .

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS (operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the backup battery (CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. Sometimes the memory card connections can be faulty either on the card or on the slot. Cleaning the slot and card must be done before you try a replacement. If the PC boots and fails then the hard disc can have bad sectors or is corrupt. However if there is no result the motherboard also can be suspected. In this case you might need the help of proper tools and equipment support to do a chip level service.

I was cleaning my HP Compaq dx2000 mt and forgot to put on the ram chips and turned it on and it beeped 5 times and a red led flashed 5 times, I put back the ram chips and turn it on and it doesn't...

Done it myself, RAM should have booted up after reinstalling the RAM.
Need to check very close on the RAM slots and make sure the the one slot on the btton of the RAM stick is directly down into the slot guide as can be forced but end clip would not set.

If this does not solve your problem I would suggest resetting the CMOS of your computer as it may have locked it out, CMOS finds all devices installed on the mainboard and addresses them to prepare for boot.

I am sending you a link to the HP support manual page for your review for how to clear the bios and boot back up to reset the CMOS up again. You might have reset your time and Date.

Let me know if good to go or if you still cannot boot or have the "Orange" led.

Please go to the HP link below by coping and pasteing into your web browser. The LED listing and CMOS resetting is on page #2 on the right side of the Adobe PDF document..

Mobo fried? Beeps when startup but no video. I reseated ram and video card, with no luck. Both fans work and it sounds like it is booting. I tried older video card too but nothing. Thanks for any...

Try removing the display card and using the onboard VGA. Remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about a minute and then reinstall it in the correct orientation. This will reset the BIOS/CMOS to it's default settings. You say it beeps once, this means that it is fine the mainboard is ok, it is not experiencing any problems. If it beeps in a continuous manner then it is the RAM that is causing the problems, I would say that the default settings may solve your troubles. Remember to enter the BIOS/CMOS when during boot up to reset the date and time by hitting the delete key. Also try entering the BIOS/CMOS even if you can't see any thing on screen, by doing this it may come up. let me know how it goes, I am here to help.

Thanking you

The shuttle xpc will not boot -- instead of a blue light on the power switch it is flickering orange

This indicates that the mother board might have gone bad. you can try reseting all the memory card's, expension card's, processor fan, battery and put it back in and try see if it works or you might have to replace the motherboard.
