Claude Vincent plase start the sytem without the memory, If the sytem beeps so therfore there is no problem in the board and in the processor, in this case youe should replace the memory, however there is no beeps it means that further test in the motehrboard and the processor.

Please notify me for further issue before you rate, Thanks. Hi Melnavz,

I start the system without memory and there is no beeps.

Thank's again
Claude

    Hi,



    I use your step-by-step and I have the same weird problem.



    Weird because when I plug the AC adapter, the laptop start right now... without press the power on switch. At this point, the LED power flash green and orange without stopping.



    If I stop the laptop, the LED power stay green and the battery led stay off.



    What's the problem ???



    Thank's in advance

In this case you should examine the motherboard and the processor.

verify the Mboard maybe maybe some part oversheat, if non then , Kindly remove the processor, then switch on for a while then shutdown: fix back the procesor and then switch on. still no beeps? try your Processor to other computer system with same socket on mainboard. if the processr work; then your mainboard is damage. u need to replace; if not work. processor is damage and need to replace.

Be sure to test all the pheriperals of your system before you buy a replacement to see if some other parts is no problem.

Like memory, VGA,

If all of the solution is not working its time u to assemble new computer system. i give you all the possible solution, or else tell me the working part i will help you seeking and speicy the replacemnet part.

thank you more power.

    There is possibility the the mainboard is dead, however try to remove the processor, its either the Processor or the mainboard id dead.



    remove the processor and then set it back maybe the system hang-up.

Tecra r840 wont start (Won't even go to boot menu)


Try reseating the RAM module/s. If it still does not boot up then then RAM could be faulty, remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Presario 6350CA won't boot


I don't know that I'm going to be a great deal of help, but here is the link to the support site for you Presario:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=390426&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Here's a link to another page on the Compaq site that specifically talks about power supply problems:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06788&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=390426&lang=en#N514

They discuss a flashing power led on this site, but I believe they are referring to an led on the power supply itself. Perhaps the led on the keyboard and the led on the power supply are both flashing...

Good luck. I hope this helps.
