    I tried that option already with no success, any key still opens the media player, in addition to the keyboard issue, the touchpad is not responding, I am hoping it is related to the curerent problem :(

    Acer has requested the laptop be sent in for repair, they are certain that there is problem with the keyboard's internal workings. We will keep our fingers crossed that they fix it asap. Thank you all for your help :)

HP Pavilion Media Center a1510 PC desktop, one long beep pause and one long beep keeps repeating, fans and lights working. Is it worth fixing?


One beep means a problem with your processor (CPU). You can try to reset it (there is(are) clip(s) on the side that hold it down to the socket). Unplug everything from your computer before opening. You may need to remove the heat sink on top of the CPU; get some thermal paste to put on the CPU before you replace it. Lift up the clip, make sure the CPU is correctly oriented (one corner is marked) and press it back down. Spread new thermal paste and replace the CPU cooler. Try rebooting the computer. If that doesn't work, you should try a new CPU - match to the socket on the motherboard. Unfortunately, if you use Windows, you will probably need to contact them to ensure that the OS key is valid.

I hope this helps.

(if your computer is really old or was cheap, replacing it with a new machine may be easier. Pull the old hard drive and either install it as a slave drive in the new machine or use a hard drive enclosure (IDE or SATA to USB or eSATA if that is on the new machine), a hard drive dock (SATA) or a IDE/SATA/USB dongle (that lets you connect a bare drive out in the open to the USB port) to get your data from the old computer.)

I have windows xp media center. I go to control


I would try booting in to safe mode see what happens
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
If it works in safe mode you may have a permissions issue or infection of some type.
Run a virus scan.

Remove any devices connected to your computer.

Can't turn Computer on. Green light on back flashing


when you power up the computer check your smps fan is running then check key bord num lock key is it on and off when u press numlock key?
if it on and off then your computer is ok it should be screen resolution isssue.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode then go to control panel and dispaly settings then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
If it not works then open cpu cover and refix RAM.
also pull cmos cell from mother bord for 15 minute so all settings are reset to factory defaults.
then again put cmos cell in its position then check.

Start up problem


I've checked your media center model on the net and it appears to be a known BIOS problem. Keep in mind that this is most likely video card or motherboard failure. But we can try resetting it Try booting into the BIOS using the F10 key and then pressing F12 and pressing y. The system should reboot with the default BIOS settings. If there is any change you likely have a good chance at fixing it. Please post your results.
