You can get an idea of the problem here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bph07107

from a cursery look over the page it could be hat the laptop has died. might be worth taking the memory out and reinsert it but from experience it's probably dead.

Computer shut down and red light flashing five times then three second pause and repeats


According to the troubleshooting guide for this model, the red light flashing five times indicates a problem in the RAM (memory), before the video subsystem is ready. You may just need to open the case and make sure the memory sticks are fully locked in their slots. If you just added new memory, it might not match the required specs.

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)

Cause Pre-video memory error.

Solution
1.
Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.

2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.

3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.

HP Compaq dc5700 Small Form Factor PC will not boot up. I get 5 red flashing lights and 5 beeps, 5 times then nothing. it was working fine last night


The RAM maybe faulty, try reseating the RAM, if that doesn't work try one RAM modulel at a time.
Try testing the RAM in another computer or take it to your friendly computer shop.

HP COMPAQ D530 RED BLINKING LIGHT WITH BEEPING SOUNDS.


4 beeps & 4 flashes mean problem with the power supply. For my experience, most of the time the PSU is good, it is just overloaded.

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.
