    more than likely the protection capacitors in the power suppy have burst, this is designed to happen to protect the rest of the system in the event of a surge.

    You will pay someone more than what the power supply is worth to fix it.

    you can order one here http://www.newtechservicescanada.com/ or somewhere similar for about 60 dollar plus shipping..

    HP asks about 100 for the HP brand of this power supply.

You can find power supplies online (newegg or tigerdirect) for less than $40, sometimes with free shipping. I would guess that is the problem. Hopefully the power supply went out and it didn't ruin the motherboard.

Is your hard drive or monitor randomly switching off after a few minutes of...


This problem could be that your Power Options in the Control Panel have been switched to "switch off the component ever now and then to save power". To change this, do the following:

1) Navigate to the Control Panel by clicking Start and then Control Panel. Then double click on Power Options as shown below circled in red.

2) This will then display the Power Options window as shown below.
slasher_x_16.jpg
3) Once you have opened the Power Option Properties, under Power Schemes select the one that best suits your PC system.

4) Then you can select whether or not to switch off your monitor and/or hard drives after a period of time when it is not being used.

If you have your PC on most of the time then I suggest you select Never as the turn off option for both your hard drive and monitor. If you are using a laptop the turning off the hard drive and screen can however save on battery power when the laptop is not in use.

If your problem persists then it might just be as simple as a loose connection, make sure all hard drive connectors are firmly inserted and that your monitor display plug is correctly plugged into your display card or onboard display correctly.

If your hard drive persists with this problem then it may be a faulty dive. I suggest you take the drive to a PC technician and have them check if it's faulty or malfunctioning.

If you can faintly see your desktop background on the monitor that switches off then check my tip about LCD backlighting issues: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6836567-lcd_monitor_displays_background_fine

Switched the power on but switched the 230 setting on the back to 115 by mistake then it blew dont know what ive caused but could you help


You probably blew the fuse in the power box where the plug ,and 115/230 switch is. unit must be dissambled, as well as the power box. there should be a fuse inside. If you can't do it take it to a repair shop. If you can ,make sure the new fuse fuse is the same amperage.

My computer wont let me install OS


You have to reboot and tap F2 to go to BIOS select option to enable the Secondary controller and to detect the proper IDE Devices?

Also make sure the IDE cable is firmly attached and the you have pin 1 alligned properly at all 2 (or3) connectors. And if you have 2 IDE devices attached make sure one jumper ( in HD or CD ) is set to master and the other to slave.

If none of this works, try a known good CD rom drive that you can try and try switching with a known good cable.

Once the system recognize the CD ROM youre set to go !

As long as your hard drive didnt go, you will still have all of your files. Chances are your Motherboard blew. Motherboards have capacitors so they can make popping noises if they blow
