    Thank you soooooo much.

    It is an HP Pavillion. If it is the power switch, what is the estimated cost? (Don't worry, I won't hold you to it, just want to get an idea.)



    Also, I have a tower, from another brand, your comment leads me to believe that a PSU is not interchangable, is that correct? I have not opened the other PC up to see if it looks the same, but if it does, is there a chance that it is not compatible and I will cause serious damage?



    And if it is, is it a complicated proceedure or one that my "semi technical on a basic level" skills would be acceptable for?

90% of the time this symptom indicates a bad power supply.
If a generic system and in some name brand systems, the part is quite cheap (about $40) + labor.

In rare cases, the power switch could be bad.

Since installing my netgear wireless dualband router WNDR3400, the only way I can turn my tower off is to unplg the power supply. Please help


your pc problems have nothing to do with your new router. Your pc sounds like the mobo is not sending a kill signal to the power supply. You can either re-flash you mobo bios or try a patch for windows. Most likely this is not a fixable problem as the cost to fix it will be as high as a new pc.

Nothing happens when push start button. power cord etc good ??? is this a power unit failure?


make sure the outlet is recieving power

unplug the tower from the outlet & then replug it in & see what happens

make sure all cords are plugged in correctly in the back of the tower

then if nothing happens after you push the start button, power supply & cord could be bad

the same thing happened to my daughter's pc & had to replace power supply & shorted out the motherboard

HP a1050y....Push the button to turn it on, and


You might have a bad power supply, or something might have loosened inside the case. sometimes if the memory or processor get jarred , they might need to be reseated. unplug all the cables from the back of the tower, only leave the power cord in then try to power up. Sounds like it might be power supply or Maybee the motherboard. Have a computer tech check all the inside connections. Good luck..

Computer seems totally dead


If the power cord is firmly plugged in - both ends, remove the battery. Does it turn on now? If so, replace battery.
