Get a new power supply because yours most likely has become faulty or the mobo is broken

HP Pavilion Media Center m8200n upon turning on it only beeps, and led light blinks twice contiuously, with no signal to monitor?


Power On LED Carl?

I ask that because most Power Supply's that HP uses, have an LED on the back also.
(HiPro, Delta, and Bestec)

The LED is now working as a diagnostic LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so stating LED light, is redundant)

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

As stated, it's a Code.
One example;
3 Short beeps,...pause, 3 Short beeps,...pause, etc.

With the Power On LED blinking 2 times, then a pause; indicates,

A) Computer is dirty inside. To include Power Supply

Computer is unplugged from power, Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED; and a can or two of compressed air for computers, is used to clean it out.

I have a procedure to follow if you are interested.

B) Processor (CPU) fan is not seated correctly, and/or is Not functioning, or functioning properly.

Case open, and computer on; see if the Processor fan is;
1) Spinning

2) Looks to be spinning the proper speed.

No, I don't expect you to count the Revolutions per Minute, lol!
My reference is a general one. If the Processor fan looks to be turning slowly, you'll know it

3) Processor fan spins intermittently. Spin, slow down, stop....spin, etc.

C) Thermal Paste in-between Processor, and the finned Heatsink that sits on it, has dried up.
Lost it's thermal conductivity properties.

Top of Processor, and Bottom of Heatsink; MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned, and fresh, new Thermal Paste applied.

I have a procedure for this too.

I can guide you step by step.

Post back in a Comment.

No monitor or keyboard, fan is loud, Monitor puts up th no input message but wont turn on, keyboard lights are not on either


> fan is loud

When you first turn the computer on, the full runs at 100%, until the motherboard's "POST" (Power On Self Test) procedure has checked all the hardware, and "beeped" the speaker just once.

So, no "beep" (or multiple "beeps") and the 100% speed of the fan suggest a hardware problem with your motherboard.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

Power on but no display processor fan running power switch light off


Power light possible means nothing, maybe a burned out led.
No display: Try feeling the cpu heatsink to see if its getting warm. If it is cold after 15 minutes running, the CPU may have failed. If warm, move onto the graphics. If using onboard, try using an aGP card and see if you get a display then.

(I'm assuming that you get a beep on powering up? If you get no beeps at all, confirms CPU is at fault, if 8 beeps on start up, probably graphics. any other beep codes, post them and I (or somebody else will help)

Fans run at high speed , blue light comes on, i get no video.


Hello

OK, firstly., if the fan runs at hight speeds, it is an indication of the CPU overheating.

If you do not get any beep codes, Your motherboard might also be damaged.

Let me know if you are getting any beep codes.

Also, if the CPU is blown, you will not get any video, because the CPU is not processing anything.

please let me know if you are receiving any beep codes, so we can start troubleshooting.

Kind regards
Andrea

Pressing power switch, computer green light below power switch does not come on; fans run; dvd player drive blinks; no boot up. monitor says no signal.


Does the computer Beep at all. If it does, and it beeps differently now than it did previously then that is a POST code and indicates a serious problem. If it Beeps like it used to but there's no video then you should still hear the hard disk clicking - that would be a Video card problem (or perhaps the monitor). If it doesn't Beep at all and it does not make a clicking noise then your BIOS, or Motherboard may be damaged.... perhaps by a failed, or faileing power supply (?)
