HP dx5150 Microtower PC won't start up just beeps

\015 When you press the power button it just beeps 5 times, then rest, beeps 5 times, rest etc etc\015

Answers :

That's what's called a POST beep code. The HP DX5150 beep code info can be found at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=120&prodSeriesId=447468&prodTypeId=12454&objectID=c00868914,

but for your benefit: 5 beeps means you have a memory problem. Take out the DIMMS (memory sticks) and reseat them. Try to boot. If you get the POST code again, you have bad memory (unlikely, but could also be a bad FSB on the motherboard). If you have more than one memory stick, remove one, try to boot, if you get the error, put it to the other memory slot, try to boot...then do the same procedure with the other stick. If you can get it to boot on one stick, you know the other is bad.
That indicates a bad pci card. You can try reseating any cards you have, or remove them one at a time to find which card is the problem.
