Sounds like a hardware problem. Has the computer been moved recently? Check that all cards and cables are securely connected.

Here's a list of beep codes

Hp D4000 won't boot up. Power supply light is on solid green but its almost as if the power button on the tower is not turning the tower on.


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Suddenly my hp pavilion a1217n tower won't turn on...the green light is blinking rapidly...


are you referring to the light on the back? if so the power supply has most likely failed, mother board can also cause this issue.

Monitors will not turn on due to a power spike. Tower makes a beeping noise with a red blinking light. What could be the problem?


The moitors did not turn on at all after the power spike?
If that is the case, probably some electronic components were burned due to power surge damage.
I advise you to contact the manufacturer for repair and your local electricity supplier.
The beeping noise and the red blinking could be indication that no monitor is plugged in.

My tower turns on and makes this consistent beeping sound. And nothing shows on the screen.


I believe from my own past that the beeping sound is an over-heating alarm, and that you need to get more fans installed inside. Try taking off the door to your tower, and point a fan in on it and turn off the computer, wait about 5 minutes with the fan set to high to see if that solves your problem. If it doesn't then I suggest you take it in to the shop or wait for some more possible answers on here.

Hope this helps!

Are there any beeps?
Could be the power supply going, motherboard, memory or CPU.

Computer tower started beeping


If you added more memory this may make your tower beep.
If so I WOULD REMOVE THE ADDED MEMORY AND THEN RESTART

Nothing put a beeping when power is turned on


When a beep sound occurs, it means that there is always something.
Go to this website and find out what your beep means.

You will have to find out what manufacture your motherboard is from, and from there, you can see the list of errors from the beep sound that your computer is sending out.
