Ive got a long continual beep and it emits orange light from the front and back of the computer how am i to fix it?


Turn the computer off.
Unplug the power cable.
Remove the video card.
Remove the RAM.
Re-insert the video-card, ensuring that it is "seated" properly.
Do NOT re-install the RAM, just yet.
Connect the power cable.
Turn the computer on.
If you get a different "beep", the lack of RAM is the problem.
If you get the same "beep", the video-card is the problem.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cable.
Re-install one stick of RAM (two if it is RAMBUS/RDRAM).
Reconnect the power-cable.
Turn the computer on.
If it beeps "normally", then the not-yet-installed RAM is the problem.
If it still "long-beeps", turn the computer off, disconnect the power-cable, and remove the RAM, and insert the "other" stick/pair of RAM.
Reconnect and start it up.

If still a problem, change the video-card.

Computer in safe mode and monitor will go to sleep mode....help what can I do...my husband tried everything....


First, Shotdown your computer from start ,
then remove your computer power, remove VGA cable, remove VGA power cable. then
1- connect vga cable to computer.
2- connect VGA power but do not power on.
3- connect computer power on but do not turn on
4- turn on computer first and 3 second turn on your lcd.

if NOT try powering on computer then Monitor then power the computer then monitor.
IF NONE worked, YOU may have LCD that need drivers from manufacturing, some newer models required that, Specially for vista.You may use older Monitor to get drivers to computer and extracted, then you may connected, you will have solved the problem.
Goodluck

Monitor shows ''NO SIGNAL''


This is normal. The monitor is telling you it is not getting a signal from the computer, which is true because you've turned off the computer. The monitor power is still on, however. The monitor power is not controlled by the computer power switch. Just turn it off with its power switch after you shut off the computer.

Power issues


Was one of the tips on the HP site to unplug your Video Card?
The power supply might be having trouble pumping enough power into the card.
After you take out the card and get it to POST, go into the BIOS and turn on the onboard graphics and see if you can get it back to the OS screen.
If that doesnt work post again and ill try to help you further.
