HP have recognized a few people have this problem, and there could be many causes. A few of them with potential solutions are listed in this article on HP website

An obvious cause I don't think is mentioned is that your CPU heatsink is fouled with dust. Turn it off and unplug it., and earth yourself. Clean out the h/s with a can of compressed air. You might even try removing the heatsink and fan(using the proper procedure) and cleaning ex-situ, replacing it afterwards using the proper procedure. (You will have to look up how to this in detail if you wish to pursue this)

All fans are spinning at full speed all the time.


Greetings I personally like it when my fans are cooling at full speed all the time. That means it is cooling well. Now most computer fans are sensory thermostatically controlled fans. Which means they go on and off when the computer is cool and on when it gets hot. Now with this in mind. You may just need a simple blowing out of the hardware above the CPU might be packed with dust.
So first I would clean it out if you have not done so already if you have done so then I would go to control panel and click on the power options and set it to default. I noticed when I changed my settings away from default my fans stayed on. When I went back and set the power options to default the fans started going on and off during the hot and cold readings. This is just my computer efforts to solve this it is really not a problem if your fans are working full speed. However if you leave your computer on all the time note that this will wear them down sooner than they would if they were going on and off. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Change operating system from Spanish to English


Im assuming that the question is the operating system, commands, etc are all in spanish. You did not specify your operating system so unsure about what version or manufacturer. The instructions below will work for Vista... similar instructions can be done in XP and Win 7.

My Power Suplly makes a high pitch noise and the


The problem lies in the reduction of operational frequency. It is mainly caused during the loose of ferrite cores or failure of HV diodes across the primary coil.
1) Check the looseness of ferritte cores parts loose or fixed properly ?
2) If OK Just check the components parallel to the high voltage side of the big transformer.
3) Check low voltage schottky rectifier diodes. One must be shorted. Just remove and here the sound. If it disappears, it must be faulty. During this test, the output voltages may increase to three times also. So, to safeguard, disconnect the filter capacitors.
Solution :
1) If any of the core becomes loose, just join it properly with epoxy or glue.
2 & 3) If any device fault occurs, just replace it in case of schottky rectifier diodes better replace with higher capacity. Capacity with numbers are given below :
1N5822 => 3 A
F12C20=> 6A per channel total 12A
MBR 20150 => 10A per channel.
MBR 3035WT => 15A per channel

Hello,

I would ask the customer a few questions:

1. Do you have the computer connected to a power adaptor or is it a voltage switching pc?

2. Has the pc always done this? If not, have you changed any power setting in the control panel? (Or have the checked the power setting.)

3. When was the last time the pc shut down properly? Maybe the pc is trying to install updates and need time to finish the install. (If when powering off the pc you see a shield over the power icon from the start menu, let the pc run its course and it should power on/off correctly.)

Good Luck

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen. The PC may not boot to windows, but it Does post at this point, and with that the problem is resolved. If windows does not load, then you have a new problem. Best dealt with asking a new question.

Good luck!

MY SONY LAPTOP WONT BOOT


Hi,

The flashing amber light means the screen is in power save mode. Since you are not seeing a "No Video Signal" things are looking up.

You want to use the menu buttons on your screen to navigate through and locate the power save time out settings. Its best to set it for 'never'.

If that makes the change a fix, let me know, I'll guide you through the settings on your desktop display to control the display time out.

Regards,

Video and audio


Hello.
if the problem you are having, only includes the video and audio
reproduction, you should check the following:

- Make sure you got the latest Codecs for audio and video reproduction( MPEG, etc, there are many codecs packs to choose, and not all work properly.)
- Check for the version of DirectX you have, try to get the latest
version( i think it is DirectX 9.0 C)
to check the above, click on - START - click on - RUN - type dxdiag and click ok, there you can get info about many devices on your pc.
Less likely but check anyway:
- You have properly installed the latest Sound and Graphics adapter drivers.( you can visit the motherboard manufacturer's website to get the newest version of Drivers for your hardware).

I hope this can help you.
Good luck.

My laptop


You would need a new battery. Or charge the battery to fullest, then discharge all the way and do that a few times. That might put some life back into it. Laptop batteries tend to looes its charge no matter how much you take good care of it. 10 -20 percent a year. Thats how much they loose their charge by.
