It may be a power supply problem. Wires are thin enough to crack, if this happens when the power supply is cold the system will boot but when turned on heat is produced causing the wire to ope., hence the flash of red light. Try another power supply before buying one - easy to replace.

Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.

SOURCE: stuck on safe mode

goto start --> run --> type msconfig --> there should be a option to change to the boot tab, under boot options tick safe mode off. and press apply and then ok and restart your computer

WHY DOES A RED LIGHT FLASH 4 TIMES THEN SHUTS OFF ON MY HP COMPAQ


Hi:
Here is what I would do...
Turn the PC off and unplug it. Then press the power button to drain any residual power from the motherboard.
1. Remove and reseat the memory module(s). Restart the PC.
2. If removing and reseating the memory module(s) doesn't work, if you have more than one memory module installed, remove all but one, and start the PC.
Test each memory module one at a time, until you find the one that is bad.
If none of that works, check for bulging and leaking capacitors on the motherboard. These may be particularly noticeable around the processor area.

Press start button, fan trys to start, green light comes on then changes to a red flashing light


If your fan is trying to start up but won't, your system is going to give you a warning and most likely shut down. Make sure you have good connection for fan power and that it is clean and can turn freely. You may want to cosider replacing the fan.

Hello have a problem with tv Model is: lg


http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6281

The above link goes to lg's website describing the red flashing light where the power switch is, and

another switch down below which can turn that light off.

Try switching that other switch below off so the light turns off. Then, switch it back on.

If that doesn't work, then service should be scheduled for this discontinued model.

Hope this helps on your lg tv.

It sounds like your power supply unit as some leaky components, normally the bad powersupply unit show these types of symptoms. Try borrowing a powersupply unit from a friend that is similar to yours and replace to check if the powersupply unit is the culprit. If cornfirm PSU, than you neet to get yours fixed.

Red light flashing on power button


how I solve this issue of a customer of mine.
replaced power supply and one memory stick was faulty
lesson learned: check the obvious first.. .Powersupply.. if problems persists... check your ram... if you have 2 sticks of ram,, try reseating and using one at a time or swap with known good memory.
