Hi

Tell us the number of times and the repeated cycle, EG:

Power button LED blinks 5 times with 5 beeps

Memory

Reseat memory DIMM modules. If the problem is not resolved, contact support to resolve a possible RAM or Main-Board failure.

Power button LED blinks 6 times with 6 beeps

Video Card or Graphics

Reset the graphics card (if applicable). If the problem is not resolved, remove other accessory cards, and replace the graphics card or Main-Board.

Power button LED blinks 7 times with 7 beeps

Motherboard or Main-Board failure

Contact support for possible Main-Board replacement.

Power button LED blinks 8 times with 8 beeps

BIOS or CMOS problem (ROM)

Perform BIOS recovery with external media (USB/CD-ROM).

 

 

OR

The main area (DXE) of BIOS has become corrupted and there is no recovery binary image available.

Also happens when updating BIOS.

Typically no steps needed.

1. Allow the system to complete its updates and changes.

2. If updates are stalling, attempt Sure Start Recovery.

The embedded controller policy requires the user to enter a key sequence.

1 Follow any prompts given.

2 If issue persists, attempt Sure Start recovery.
