I have a HP elite desk that can't boot. It makes 4 beeping sounds with a red light light. I've tried changing RAM and putting it in different slots, changed CMOS battery and still not working. Any other solution?

The beep code you are hearing indicates that your power supply has failed.1 If your computer is still under warranty, I would contact HP.

Sometimes resetting the computer will resolve this.


Disconnect all of the peripheral devices, mouse, keyboard, USB devices, printers, etc.


Remove the power cord from the back of the computer.


Press and hold the power button for 30 to 40 seconds.


Plug everything back in and restart the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
