Hmm...a laptop, right? that's a clear indication that you are on battery power, and perhaps your power device is really and truly unhappy.

Well when I turn the computer on the light flashes green then it flashes red what does that mean?


Means that you have warning about your hardware. Go to HP site for more info and what lights mean.Not to scare you, but that is usually something bad with power.

When I turn on my computer nothing happens but the light flashes?


A lightening strike!!!!!! The power surge from a strike could have blown the computer's motherboard and processor. Did you have any surge protection and was the computer on at the time? chances are the computers fried.
There is one last thing you can do, that is remove the side panel from the desktop so you can see the motherboard, you will see a battery like this >>ecb2000.jpg. Near to the battery you will see a plastic "jumper" this will reset the cmos if you move it to the other position, turn the pc on, if nothing happens the cmos has been cleared, put the jumper back in its original position and start the computer again, if you still get nothing them some if not all the components inside the computer has been fried.

Good luck

Blinking red light at "on" button


Dont panic the date is more than likely fine was the computer off or on during the night. The three flashes is usual joined with 3 beeps chweck that the internal speaker is on. Second there is a small battery on the motherboard. Disconnect the power then take the battery out for twenty seconds then put it back in be gentle taking it in and out the reconnect the power then see if the unit boots if not. At worst you can take the hard drive out of the computer and put it in another and retrieve the data.
Hope this helps :-)

Dell Dimension Shut Down


Hi

You query suggest you have Dell Dimension 3000. Dell Dimension 3000 is a desktop PC and does not have a battery backup by itself.

I am assuming the battery backup you are referring to is a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). If this is correct then by your description of the issues, the UPS may be faulty (indicated by the Red light and beeping).

Disconnect the computer's power cord from the UPS and connect it to a wall power outlet to confirm or rule out the UPS as the offending device.

If this does not help reply with more info

Sound


Make sure your volume is not on mute. If the speaker icon on your lower right has a red x means its on mute. To test go to control panel and double click sounds and test. If Windows sounds work without speakers then problem is with speakers. Make sure volume is up, make sure its properly connected to correct output jack (usually green or light green). Also make sure speaker power on. If those things are correct check your device manager ( right click my computer) select "manage", click on "device manager" and on right pane check to see if theres any yellow exclamation, question mark or red x on the sound device section. Yellow exclamation or question mark means to update or install correct drivers. Check your speaker box if it comes with a CD.
