Question about HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop
My computer won't come on . There is a light above the power plug on the back that is flashing, and the power button on the front also flashes around the edges. what is wrong and how can i fix it?
I had the same problem, I unplugged my computer to move it before it had fully powered down. It wouldn’t start and all I got was the flashing lights.
I asked a friend who suggested I remove the power to the motherboard then reinsert it while it’s hot. Here’s what I did. Unplug the computer. Touch something metal so you’re grounded and don’t create a static shock on the motherboard. Now GENTLY pull the 16pin wire harness off the motherboard. Now plug the computer power cord back in. Then GENTLY plug the motherboard back in. With any luck the fan will start up and the computer will begin booting up. It seems to be some type of problem where the power supply doesn’t recognize the motherboard so it doesn’t do anything until it “sees it”? Probably some type of a safety to prevent motherboard burnout?

If there is a light flashing on both the back of the power supply and the power button that that definitly means that your power supply is faulty and/or there is some cord loose or malfunctioning so the best thing you can do is just replace the power supply and/or call customer service and have them suggest the best power supply for your system. if you dont know how to replace your power supply or even take apart your computer, message me here the name and model number of the computer and you can go into a live chat with me or another expert on this site about how to go about dissasembling your computer and replacing your power supply correctly.
