Question about HP Compaq dc5000 PC Desktop
Power LED flashes Red,
once every two seconds.
Power LED flashes Red four
times, once every second,
followed by a two second
Would this be the symptom?
If so, then yes, the Power Supply is bad.
What causes this?
1) A large percentage is due directly to the fact, that the computer is dirty inside, as well as the inside of the Power Supply.
2) A smaller percentage is that the Power Supply is a low quality unit, installed by the computer manufacturer.
Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, anti-Static precautions observed.
Using a can of compressed air for computers on a regular basis as needed, would help prevent Power Supply failure.
Is the dc5000 the Small Form Factor, or the Micro-Tower, style?
(SFF style looks like a Pizza Box)
Will look up Power Supply replacement for you if you wish, and information on replacing it.
