on some systems 5 beeps =:
5 beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed.
but knowing the right model it may mean somehting else.

I have similar problem with my HP xw8200, XP Professional service Pack 2.
I have try to reload operating system from CD, read manual, swiched memory modules.
I have not even used this machine for 2 or so years.
Anybody know how to fix this and make the computer work?

You simply don't get that far in the startup procedure.
Try to reinstall all memory cards, graphical card, network card and whatever else is installed on the motherboard. And even the processor if you are brave enough to do that. I would usually wait with touching the processor.

I had the same problem I ended up taking the Ram out of both sockets and reinserting them in the 2 blue sockets instead of the 2 black sockets and it booted up recognizing the new ram.

- Bad seated memory
- Bad memory
- Bad motherboard
- Bad motherboard and memory
Try to find dust in memory sockets
The easy way: install one by one the modules (if you have more than one)

hp dc7900 cmt 3.3 gh. Red light on at start up 5 Beep codes. just fixed one, turned out to be a memory problem.
Replace memory with known good pc2 6400U - 666 - 13 memory. Computer worked ok
Ditto. 5 beeps, reseated RAM, all better now.
Only reseat a CPU as an absolute LAST resort. If you ARE going to reseat the CPU, better have some Arctic Silver on hand...
reconnect the RAMS -99% helped!
