if it BEEPS more then once... pull out your mem chips and test,, If it works then one of the mem chips are bad if not.. pull out all pci cards and test.. if it works its a bad card... if not unplug all HD and CD roms and test.......
If not kicking on yet its could be power supply, motherboard or the CPU chip
These computer are know to have bad capacitors. Check and ensure that you dont have swollen capacitor on the motherboard. The HP Compaq desktops are notorious for this. I am almost certain you have bad capacitors.
many important devices are located from the underside of pc...mem cards,hd,wifi...
if pc at some stage has had a knock hd or mem could be not seated properly.if ur on battery check to see if loose and check power cable connection..though the battery or power cable shouldnt cause it to crash...
if it is not hd or mem it will be something more difficult to access but again something loose or making short...cpu or vga but check hd and mem first for now..
sounds like a motherboard problem if a using a different battery and power adapter did not fix it. Though, you may want to reseat the memory modules, or if available, swap them with known-good memory modules just to isolate that the problem is not memory related.
I have experienced this problem recently. It is a simple and inexpensive (~$50 shipped to your door...) solution to replace the motherboard. I don't repair motherboards so I cannot give advice on replacing capacitors.
is the cpu fan working if so you may have to remove it and clear any dust or fluff that has collected on the heat sink. sometimes you cannot see the fluff etc until fan removed. If fan not working replace fan
Its good that it beeps without the memory that means the mainboard is trying to boot. Make sure to try each ram chip individually in both sockets (if you have 2). If that gets nowhere I would try another CPU next.
It can't be the RAM, it would be beeping if the RAM was not installed properly. If it was and they were bad, it would fail in Windows.
We've had numerous similar problems to yours with our D530's. Check the motherboard to see if any of the capacitors (round barrel shaped components) are swollen (round on top) or leaking. It is a known manufacturers defect and they were replacing those motherboards for free, unfortunately that program just ended.
If the capacitors are all flat on top, its probably the power supply. We've had four go bad in the past month. They sometimes smell like something is burning before they go bad. The D-530 model is unfortunately our most unreliable model ever, they are junk. Good luck.
