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

Compaq presario doesnt boot upon powering up

boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.

If you have a Dell, then do this the next time.

As soon as you see your system creating problems again, turn to the back of the computer. There are 4 LED lights. See the status of those lights, I mean, green, orange etc. Check it on and see if you find something useful.

Could be an overheating problem.

Power it off & disconnect the power. Open up the case, and use a vacuum cleaner, canned air, QTip, and be sure all dust is gone from the fans, vents, and other openings.

You may need to do this on a regular (monthly or so) basis, especially if you have pets, as I do. Also, consider getting the computer up off the floor if you can, and make sure it gets good airflow.

Something I've seen occasionally on Dell boxes is that they'll have problems booting up or shutting down if a USB device is attached to them (not the keyboard or mouse, but a flash drive, USB hub, or similar.)

If that applies to you, disconnect the devices to get it to boot. Then, add one device at a time, shutting down and starting up again. You might determine which is the offender, and see if there are new drivers available.

I had a Logitech device that cause a problem. I removed their drivers, and Windows loaded it's own, and the problem went away.

Hope that helps.
