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


That indicates a parity error on your memory modules on the motherboard. Try removing and putting the memory back in different slots. This usually fixes it. If it doesn't, then replace the memory.

HP Pavilion Media Center m8200n upon turning on it only beeps, and led light blinks twice contiuously, with no signal to monitor?


Power On LED Carl?

I ask that because most Power Supply's that HP uses, have an LED on the back also.
(HiPro, Delta, and Bestec)

The LED is now working as a diagnostic LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so stating LED light, is redundant)

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

As stated, it's a Code.
One example;
3 Short beeps,...pause, 3 Short beeps,...pause, etc.

With the Power On LED blinking 2 times, then a pause; indicates,

A) Computer is dirty inside. To include Power Supply

Computer is unplugged from power, Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED; and a can or two of compressed air for computers, is used to clean it out.

I have a procedure to follow if you are interested.

B) Processor (CPU) fan is not seated correctly, and/or is Not functioning, or functioning properly.

Case open, and computer on; see if the Processor fan is;
1) Spinning

2) Looks to be spinning the proper speed.

No, I don't expect you to count the Revolutions per Minute, lol!
My reference is a general one. If the Processor fan looks to be turning slowly, you'll know it

3) Processor fan spins intermittently. Spin, slow down, stop....spin, etc.

C) Thermal Paste in-between Processor, and the finned Heatsink that sits on it, has dried up.
Lost it's thermal conductivity properties.

Top of Processor, and Bottom of Heatsink; MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned, and fresh, new Thermal Paste applied.

I have a procedure for this too.

I can guide you step by step.

To Create a Crisis Recovery USB you must use a Win XP system
Note: Running XP through compatibility more in Win 7 will not work
1. Insert Blank USB Drive
2. Open "CRISDISK" folder
3. Open "WINCRIS" application
4. It should detect the USB Drive
5. Click "Start" Button
WINCRIS should create the USB recovery drive
6. For Crisis recover, be sure to Power drain system.
A. Remove Battery
B. Depress power button for 10-15 sec.
7. Insert USB drive into USB port.
8. Hold END button while plugging in power cord in system
9. Continue to hold END and depress and release the system power button.
10. Continue holding END until USB drive begins to flash and a beep is heard.
11. System may remain blank as it enters recovery mode - Anoying Beeping will be heard - Beeping will stop and FANS will function Another series of Beeps will be heard
12. System should complete recovery in 5-10 min. If system has not powered down in 15 min, power down by pressing the power button

Good luck Dean/Steve

Power on screen blank.. fan on


Did you hear a sound beeping. If you can hear a sound beeping it is a RAM problem. But if there is no sound beeping that is a processor problem. You can disassemble or remove the processor and clean make sure that the processor fan is spinning so that it will control the temperature of the CPU to avoid overheating.

I think the graphics card has become unseated as the PC does not need a monitor to start up so there would be no beeps; Here is a list of beep codes with there meanings.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory
2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory

Blank monitor upon turning on PC


Well.... The motherboard could be dead... or check the power supply unit. Check the memory chips, see if the capacitors around the processor looks blown up (then motherboard is kaput) or make sure the monitor is properly connected to the motherboard monitor port... It could be numerous reasons ... See if the processor cooler fan is running and check if the processor's cooling paste is OK which would cause the processor to run TOO HOT and would prevent the PC to start-up etc etc....

Continuous Beep-Beep-Beep.. When I turn on T3304 E Machine


there is a faulty hardware in your PC. here the beep error code this might help to locate the faulty hardware in your pc, and which help you to isolate the problem.

1 Short beep - System is operating normally.
1 Long beep - Memory refresh circuitry has failed which indicates a problem with the motherboard. Try
reseating the memory DIMM or SIMM modules. Make sure if you have added memory that it is rated at the correct speed for the system.
1 Long 2 Short beeps - The video adapter has failed, or the video memory is having a read/write
failure. Try reseating the video card. If the video card is a PCI video card, try moving it to another slot.
1 Long 3 Short beeps - The system does not detect a monitor. Verify that the monitor cable is properly attached to the video card or the onboard video and to the monitor (if the monitor has a detachable cable). If possible, try another monitor on the system to verify that the video adapter is operating properly.
2 or 3 beeps - There is a problem with the system’s memory. Reseat the memory DIMM or SIMM modules.
4 beeps - This indicates a non-functional timer. This indicates a problem with the motherboard.
5 beeps - This indicates a CPU (Central Processing Unit or processor) failure. Try reseating the processor.
6 beeps - This indicates a keyboard controller failure. Try reseating the keyboard connector.
7 beeps - Another indication of a processor problem. Reseat the processor.
8 beeps - This indicates a video memory read/write failure. Reseat the video card (if any) and memory DIMM or SIMM modules.
9 or 10 beeps - This indicates a ROM (Read-Only Memory) checksum error or shutdown register failure. This indicates a defective BIOS chip(s). Reseat the BIOS chips.
11 beeps - Indicates an error in the cache memory. If the system has a Pentium class processor, reseat the processor. If the system has a cache memory module, try reseating it. These beep codes will vary depending on the system

hope this would help.

No power to motherboard


If there is no power to the motherboard then there would be no power to anything else. I can only assume that everything (HDD and DVD Rom) comes on but your monitor remains blank when power is turned on. How do you know that the processor is on? Im guessing that you assume because the cooolant fan starts turning then there is power to the processor. Unfortunately that is not the case. Your Processor could be the problem try changing it. should the speakers be emitting beeping when the computer is turned on then try changing your memory (RAM). If none of these are working then try installing a VGA card into one of your PCI slots and plug your monitor on the VGA card. If none of these work then you Mboard needs to be replaced as it could be damaged. let me know how it turns out then I will let you know what to look for in terms of damages. thanks
