HP DC5800 not booting. No boot menu. No caps lock.

HP DC5800

 

HP DC5800 not booting. No boot menu. No caps lock.

Just 5 beeps with red lights. Then beeps stop & red lights continue.

 

Trying to boot into linux.

But it doesn't get that far -- it doesn't even seem to go to BIOS.

 

I try to get boot menu by pressing F2 F8 F12 & such, but it doesn't appear the keyboard is even recognized -- no caps lock light.

 

I just bought this on ebay as used pc with no OS, intending to provide my own. My linux boot disk works on other PCs.

I also tried an Ubuntu boot CD .. same thing happened.

 

Dunno what's going on.

 

Please help if you have any suggestions.

 

Thanks.

For "BIOS beep codes", read: https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c02222922

 

Did the eBay seller describe it as "in working condition", or "for parts only" ?

 

You may have to open an eBay "dispute", to get a cash refund from the seller.
