I think I had this same problem once before. It sounds familiar but could use a few more details as to exactly what happens. From what you have said so far though it sounds like either the main power to the PC is switched off, or your power supply for the machine might be bad. First I would try looking in the back of the computer. On some of them there is a little switch usually towards the top that allows you to turn the computers power on and off. If you plug into the wall it usually will come on for a second before turning off and then when you go to turn you computer on if the switch in the back is off you computer will not start if you use the normal power button in the front. I hope that fixes your problem. If that is not the case please give me a few more details on it and I will do my best to help you get to the bottom of it :). Good luck.

My HP pavillion a 1630n will not turn on no light or anythhing


When there are no lights, test the power cord and your mains power socket, if these are OK then your switch mode power supply has failed.
You need to remove this power supply, take it to your friendly computer repair shop and get it tested, if it is faulty then replace it with a new one. Make sure the wattage is the same or higher than the faulty power supply..

My hp pavillion dv4-1220us laptop, won't start up...I press the power button and it turns on for a couple seconds and then turns back off....


1) Is it the battery, power up using the power supply.

2) When the power supply is plugged in, is there a charge light/led (could by a bad power supply not charging or providing a good connection)

3) Is the CPU over heating? Check the vents underneath are they clogged with dust?

After this, you're getting into internal faulty component issues and need someone to look at it.

HP Pavillion DV6700 is shittung down


This could be numerous things. It could be an over heating problem, a virus, a power supply failing or something wrong in the power adapter on the motherboard where the power plug plugs into the laptop. If you plug in the laptop and see the battery charge light come on then the problem is most likely an overheating problem or a virus. If the battery charge light comes on then I would recommend taking it to a reputable repair facility to have them diagnose the problem.

I can not start my PC. It does have a green


Sounds like a defective power supply. Improper power coming from the supply will cause a unit to fail boot. Power supplies are about 40 bucks.

HP Pavillion 400 Power switch problem???


Could be your power supply is broken. That is a very common problem. Sometimes the computer will keep on restarting when the power supply is about to give way. I doubt it's the motherboard that is causing the problem, but then again i have never had a motherboard fail on me.

Hp pavillion dv7 won't power on


Same issue - solved by disconencting everything (main battery, CMOS battery, RAM, hard disk and wireless card). Held in power button for 20 seconds (HP say this removes any electostatic charge on the main board). Reconnected everything and machine booted to Windows. Ran HP's onboard diagnostics and everything checked out OK.

Power supply light flashing.


Computer power supplys are modular replacement fixes. Better to replace the whole thing then try to repair.
