Alarm beeps and orange light flashes when power is switched on.


If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

For that open cpu cabinet
Reattach the RAM memory.
Open processor fan and processor reattach both.
Make sure motherboard circuit could not ground with cabinet.
Remove pci cards from motherboard if any.

Red flashing lights, will not completely start up


Do you have a windows XP cd?
If so you can try booting from the cd and running recovery console.
from recovery console type chkdsk -r
This should repair any bad sectors on your drive, allowing the drive to boot

When comp pluged in just a green flashing light


If you are sure that the 110 volt power is coming into the computer then the most likely problem is that th epower supply died. Obtain a new one of the same or larger wattagge as the one you are replacing . It does nto have to come from the manufacture of the computer.

Hard Drive


Hi,
That little "red flashing light" on the front of your computer case is the HDD activity LED. When it flashes it indicates that there's hard drive activity. No, you do not need to worry about if flashing.
Thanx for using fixya,
Hope my info helps.

Red light flashing on power button


Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.
