Hp compaq d220 MT loading screen freeze up

Whenever i turn my computer on everything starts up ok but when it get to the black screen that says Windows xp etc, it starts loading for a second or two then freezes up. I've had this problem before in the past and all i did was restart the computer to fix it. I haven't downloaded or installed anything recently (last time being 2-3 weeks ago). If anyone could help me solve my problem that would be great!

How to power up a compaq 243890-001 power supply without the the motherboard? Its not green to ground


Remove Power Supply
1 . Shut down your computer and unplug the power cord and all cables connected to the system.

2 . Open the computer case and disconnect all power connectors from the motherboard, drives, cards and fans.

3 . Remove the four screws that secure the power supply to the case. These screws are located on the back of the computer case, at each corner of the power supply.

Wire and Start Power Supply
1 . Switch the power supply to the "Off" (sometimes "O") setting.

2 . Insert the end of one wire from a single pole, single throw (SPST) switch into the green wire of the ATX power connector (the largest power supply connector).

3 . Insert the end of the other wire from the SPST switch into the black wire of the ATX power connector. If your power supply has two black wires, connect the SPST to the black wire directly beside the green wire.

4 . Wrap electrical tape around the ATX power connector and wires from the SPST switch to hold them in place. Make sure there is no exposed copper or silver wire from the SPST switch wires.

5 . Turn the SPST switch to the "Off" position, if not already set. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet and switch it to the "On" (sometimes "I")setting.

6 . Connect any other computer components that you wish to operate without the motherboard, such as fans, drives or cards. Turn the SPST to the "On" setting to activate the power supply.


Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

They all do, I believe, I installed a new one, into my computer system not long ago, are you sure your power supply is one that the computer can handle? You shouldn't have that much of a problem - I wouldn't go pulling apart the wires on the power supply, its made like that for a reason, what you could try is see if your power supply has seated properly, sometimes if your not working on a flat surface the power supply plug won't go in properly and will not be pushed in all of the way, try laying your computer on its side, and pushing in the plug also, each motherboard has a certain amount of plugs for example 20 and 24, some motherboards want it to be a 20 power plug and others want it to be 24 power plug, thats the plug thats connected to your motherboard, that I'm talking about. make sure you have the right number, and that the motherboard plug and the power supply plug match, basically have the same number of connectors, (I mean that little white plug at the end of the red,yellow,black, wires, I hope this helps. ps- I really had to push on the white plug to get my seated properly

If connector have two big brown wires (pins 1 and 11) and a small brown wire (pin 2). then short circuit the small brown wire with a big brown wire (pins 1 and 2).
Also short circuit the small black wire (pin 16) with a big black wire (pin 17).
Ps. The Power Supply needs a minimal load ex: 1A.

You might have a bad power supply. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage of the standby power supply. This voltage is present even if the system is off, plugged in. It powers a small portion of the logic circuit. It should measure within a couple of tenths of exactly +5 volts. If it is low, or high, this will prevent turn-on. The purple wire of the 24 pin connector is what carries this to the motherboard. The color coding layout is found at http://pinouts.ru/Power/atx_v2_pinout.shtml If by chance this voltage is OK, then check the full on voltages also. Repair of the defective supply is probably by replacement of one or more small electrolytic capacitors in the appropriate circuit, especially if you are technically savvy. Capacitors are available through several suppliers; Digi-Key supplyies Panasonic FC series which are suitable for switching power supplies. Or, you may just replace the whole unit.
