Question about HP Compaq dc7100 Ultra-slim PC Desktop

5 Answers

It doesn't start up, only beeps and red light flashes

When trying to power on the red led light at the front of the unit is constantly flashing and will not power on, any ideas?

When I press the button to start up it goes for a couple of seconds then powers off and the red light flashes at the front?

Each flash of the red light comes with a beep from the speaker. It repeats 5 times this sequence (11 seconds each one):
- 9 flashes and beeps (1 per second)
- All flashes and beeps stop for 2 seconds

Then, after 55 seconds (5 times this sequence), the red light flashes 1 per second but there are no more beeps.


I tried looking for the beepcodes in bioscentral but I haven't found anything.


Thanks for all,
LotusWea

    Thanks Myob247,



    I tried to remove all the memory sticks from the system, I have tried to put only one stick in different positions, and I get nothing.



    There is no more cards in the PC. I have check the Riser Card, the extra card to insert the DVD drive and everything is okay.



    I don't know what can be wrong, It was running well two days ago.





    Thanks,

    LotusWea

    For all the people that suffered about this problem.

    I decided to take it out this PC from my wardrobe to fix it, and I found the problem about this sequence of beeps.

    The problem was in the CPU Fan, after placing a new one, not exactly the same fan, because I didn't have one, it booted again as always.

    The CPU Fan wasn't reporting to the Mainboard and this one decided not to boot to avoid possible overheating.

    Have fun again with this PC, now running W/.

    repalce your RAM chip

  • LotusWea Mar 26, 2013

    Remember to check the power cord of the CPU Fan.When I was cleaning the PC I forgot to plug the CPU Fan to the MotherBoard, and the power cord may go unnoticed due to where it is placed.

Try re-seating your memory sticks. Make sure all other cards are secure. Remove them and put them back in if you have to.

More beep codes

RAM is installed in pairs in mine, but be aware the board has 2x2 slots. In mine each pair is 1 black and 1 blue slot. Mine has to have matching RAM in each black slot first. And, yes, it did work loose once and need re-seating. Try that in yours.

Are they Long Beeps? Does the RED led light on the front show up?
If there is no RED led light blinking, then the problem is your RAM.
If there IS a RED led Light showing up, then the problem is your Power Supply.

The main unit beeps every 30 seconds

This is battery related. On top of your unit is a battery pack with three colored led lights. You can tell what is going on by looking at these. This information is in your manual or here it is.
GREEN LED: All systems are normal. A solid LED light indicates the batteries are fully charged. A flashing LED indicates the batteries are being charged. NOTE: Batteries do not have to be fully charged to operate the motor unit. YELLOW LED: The motor unit has lost power and is operating off of the BBU. A solid LED with beep, sounding approximately every 2 seconds, indicates the motor unit is activating the door and is operating off of the BBU. A flashing LED with beep, sounding every 30 seconds, indicates batteries are low. Once the power is restored the BBU will recharge. This is indicated by a flashing green LED. RED LED: An error has been detected and the BBU will automatically shut off. The BBU will attempt to restart by reconnecting to the batteries. If the error is still present it will shut itself off again. This process will repeat every 5 minutes or until the error has been resolved. This is used to prevent further draining of the batteries. If a red LED remains on when the power is restored, and is accompanied by a beep sounding every 30 seconds, please call for service.

LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously

I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.

No POWER

How many times does the POWER led flash per second? (Dont worry about the OPC).

1x (steady constant blink) = Lamps or inverters
2x = Power Supply
3x = Main Unit

If i am reading it correctly, looks like the POWER led is flashing 2x, which means it is a power supply failure. Either way, your TV needs to have a board replaced, there isn't anything you can do to fix it yourself. Try locating your local sharp authorized service center to repair your TV (1-800-237-4277)

HP Compaq d530

it all depends on the number of flashes , pause, repeat.
Since the problem did not indicate any beeps her is the following info


Power LED blinks RED 2 times, one every second, followed by a
2-second pause. = Processor Thermal Protection Activated


3 blinks 1 second apart = Processor not installed (not an indicator for a bad processor).

4 blinks 1 second apart .= Power Failure (power supply is overloaded)

Other possibilities are:
5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
