Question about HP Compaq Business Desktop d330

Blinking red light at "on" button

I have an HP Compaq d330. Yesterday it worked but today the "on" button only produces red blinking lights instead of the usual green lights. The light on the right blinks 3 times over and over. The computer will not boot up or make any sounds. I'm afraid that it got zapped by lightening last night. Could a lightning strike in the area cause the computer to do this? Is all lost? Could it be possible to get my documents off it even if the computer itself is dead? Yikes!
Thanks so much!

Dont panic the date is more than likely fine was the computer off or on during the night. The three flashes is usual joined with 3 beeps chweck that the internal speaker is on. Second there is a small battery on the motherboard. Disconnect the power then take the battery out for twenty seconds then put it back in be gentle taking it in and out the reconnect the power then see if the unit boots if not. At worst you can take the hard drive out of the computer and put it in another and retrieve the data.
Hope this helps :-)

SOURCE: Blinking red light at

Please take a look at this link, and consider the possibility that your power supply has failed. Also helpful may be this article. If you take it in to them, a local computer tech can load test the power supply to determine if it is in fact at fault, and they are readily replaced for minimal cost.
Most likely your hard drive will have been spared, and your data secure, but this is the reason quality surge protectors are recommended for IT systems. No way to tell for sure until you power it up again and see if the hard drive spins up...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

What cause light blinking no video comes out


Is the blinking red light on the TV or the converter box (or maybe on the remote control)? We just need more complete information to answer your question. If the red light is on your remote control look for a button that is stuck in the down position (it's usually the OK button on my remote!).

HP Laptop(Compaq nx6310) Lights are blinking


You did not specify if you are talking about the lights below the screen or the ones at the front of the palm rest.
Have a look at pages 1-2 to 1-5 in the HP support manual (link).
The description might help you.

It seems to me that you are talking about the battery light (which is amber when the battery is charging) and the light for the drive (which is blinking when the hard drive or optical (CD/DVD) drive is in use.)

Just as a side note: if your hard drive light is constantly blinking, although the CD/DVD drive is empty AND you are not saving or accessing data - this could be a caused by not having enough RAM installed. In this case, the excessive memory has to be written to your hard drive, which could result in excessive blinking of that light.
