Why does my pc's power light indicator keeps blinking red (2 beeps) after it powers on and begins to boot, running for about a minute or two?


This means your PC is doing a Thermal Shut down, the CPU is getting to hot, this means the fan is not running at all or fast enough, or is dusty causing loss of cooling to the CPU.

To fix this open the case look at the fan if its running as it gets louder I would say in your case it is, you need to remove all the dust from the fan and the heatsink I use a small USB fan from poundland (UK) this should stop this error.

How do I turn up volume on HP computer?

If I understand correctly, you had a tech assisting you earlier and he turned off the sound and now you want to turn it back on - is that right?
Check in the lower right corner of your monitor for the speaker icon. If you see a red circle with a line over the speaker it means the tech just muted the sound. Click on the Speaker icon and open the volume control - you will be see the Mute option and just click on it.

If it is more, and I misunderstood your initial description, please respond with the model of your computer, the operating system and what the tech was called in for in the first place.

Why does my Icons on the desktop turns default once VLC player is installed?

What do you mean turns default? Are you saying all your music icons turned into the VLC icon as the default player to play them with?

If so you can change that. Right Click on one of the music icons that has vlc as the player and select Open With then select Chose Program at the bottom. When the Open With window opens select the player you want to use as your default and look down near the bottom and put a check in the box that says Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File.

Compac d-530 won't start red light under power button flashing

Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. Try turning on your laptop and if you still only get a flashing power button then try another AC Adapter. If the same thing happens then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi

Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

How do i turn on the bluetooth on my hp compaq 6720s

Not all compaq 6720s come with bluetooth module, but you can go to Control Panel --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager, check whether your laptop is bluetooth ready, refer picture below,

If you can see the Bluetooth Devices in Device Manager, means your laptop is bluetooth ready. Then on your bluetooth by click the wireless button and you willl see blue light is on.

Check this icon at the right bottom corner of your desktop,
If BWT is disabled (red logo), enable it by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon and selecting Start the Bluetooth Device. The logo will change from red to white. Then you can use the Bluetooth Setup wizard to configure the service and security features as follows:
1. Right-click the Bluetooth icon, and then select Explore My Bluetooth Places.
2. Right-click the My Bluetooth Places icon in the Folders pane of Windows
Explorer and select Bluetooth Setup Wizard to begin the configuration process.

Speakers disabled!!?? help please

How you did the disabled, same way you can make enable.

Ok first make a check whether you required a driver or not. Follow these steps:

  1. Goto control Panel
  2. Double click on System Icon
  3. Then Click on Hardware tab
  4. Click on Device Manager.

It will open the device manager window. In this window see carfully, if there is any component with yellow marked icon, then you have some missing driver, means you have to re-install the drive. If there is any component with Red marked icon then you have disabled this, means you have to make it enable for work. Just right click on that red icon and select Enable from the pop-up appeared.

And to re-install driver goto your manufacturer site put model no. and make search, they will give you the link for download.

If any problem just Ask me.
