What is the full model number of the desktop?

Have you re inserted the RAM module (memory stick), you didn't say?

Having no RAM module inserted will give a 5 power light blink, 5 beep error code

If you have re-inserted the module and are still getting the error light/beeps, replace the module with a compatible replacement module and check if this resolves the problem.

If it still fails it may be a memory controller issue on the motherboard

If it's a memory controller issue, how can it be fixed?


@Lala Hetman

As a DIY repair you will have to replace the motherboard.

Alternatively you will need to find the motherboard schematics to find out why the memory controller isn't working


replace processor....

The possible reason as an overloaded power supply.    Disconnect all external devices to see if any of those items are causing the problem, (such as a hard, diskette, or optical drives, and expansion cards).  Power on the system. If the system enters the POST, then power off and replace one device at a time and repeat this procedure until failure occurs. Replace the device that is causing the failure. Continue adding devices one at a time to ensure all devices are functioning properly.
