Re: DC 5000 red light/ beeping

The blinking should be in a pattern.

Power Green On (S0) Computer on
Power Green 1 blink every 2 seconds (S1) Suspend Mode
Power Green 1 blink every 2 seconds (S3) Suspend to RAM
Power Green Off (S4) Suspend to Disk (if applicable)
Power Clear Off (S5) Computer off
Power Red 1 blink followed by 2-second
pause - Repeat
Power Supply failure
Power Red* 2 blinks 1 second apart CPU thermal shutdown
Power Red* 3 blinks 1 second apart CPU not installed
Power Red* 4 blinks 1 second apart Power supply overload (crow bar)
Power Red* 5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
Power Red* 6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
Power Red* 7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
Power Red* 8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
Hard Drive Green Blinking Hard drive activity
*Blinking

I just repaired one of these.  The problem was the power supply.  It had a bad filter capacitor. http://www.badcaps.net/

Re: DC 5000 red light/ beeping

Hi, I have got a problem with my HP PC.

5 red flashing lights one second apart and beeping sound when I switch it on.

How can I get it fixed as I have my course work on it?

 

Thanks

Re: DC 5000 red light/ beeping

That just happened to me on my d530 CMT after I was cleaning around it. So, I could not get it to stop. I unplugged it from the wall, slid the top off and vacuumed really good. It came back on and I am typing this. It seems OK.  It was a little funny when I first started it up and that may have been from my messing with it before I opened it.
