Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just bought a HP Pavilion desktop computer. The person said it work fine until there was a weather storm and the power flickered 2 times. Since the power flickers she has not been able to get it to turn on, and neither could I after I bought it today. She advised that it was connected to a surge protector when the flickers occurred. I bought it to try and fix it to give to a person I know that just started college and has no money. Any ideas?

Is it just the PC that is not working, or the monitor as well? If it is just the PC, then you may have to swap out the SMPS with a new one. If the monitor is gone as well, then that will be expensive repairs, and youd be better off buying a new system altogether!

Hello, I have a HP Pavilion s3100n and at first it worked fine until according to Geek Squad at Best Buy said it was my motherboard, so HP replaced it and it worked great until now im haunted yet again...


If you don't see power indicator turned on or neither listen to CPU fans working, maybe the power supply is failing now, you could claim your warranty again if it's into the valid period, you could also check that all cables of your computer are securely connected.

Power on Blue Light is flickering


In use or In stand by mode the blue light will flicker. It is a external signal on your computer that indicates that there are processes running on your computer harddrive.

It is not a problem.

HP Pavilion Slimline s3122x powers up fan runs


Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.
