Question about HP GX612AA Pavilion Media Center M8330F Desktop PC

2 Answers

My hp M8330F shut off at the screen. The computer was still running; however, nothing on the screen. I unplugged the power source from the cpu and the outlet waited for 10 minutes. As I plugged the power cord into the computer it automaticly turned on; however, I had a blank screen. I was not able to press any of the"F" keys. I unplugged the power source a few more times and every time the computer would turn on by its self. I am able to power down by pressing the power switch. I can also turn on the computer with the power switch but still have a blank screen. I have a HP M8330F.

    I use my LCD TV as my monitor and to watch DVD'S on it and my TV seems to be working fine.

    Is the video adapter you're using onboard (part of the motherboard) or is it an add-on card, like agp or pci/pcie?

I agree, try another monitor to see if you still have issues. Also, Have you tried pressing and holding the shift key while it starts to power up? This will make it load very few drivers. Also, does the monitor do anything. You can almost rule out the computer hardware if you get the BIOS screen. This means that the connection to your computers motherboard is good and it's not the cables or connections or even setting on the TV/monitor.

Oh, You should also make sure that there is not a second graphic card such as an onboard card. If you can get to your BIOS setup screen and you are not using the onboard card then be sure and disable it. Could have conflics that could cause screen to go blank.

Please do not play with power cord. You can damage the power supply or the motherboard.
Try another monitor.

Computer won't do anything, keyboard does not light up, screen is blank

So there is not so much as a BIOS message on screen? Any beeps?
If there is no life at all, you have a CPU/motherboard failure. This may be direct or indirect (e.g. no power to MoBo). Check your connections.
Otherwise, your boot device may not be operating. This is usually a dead or disconnected HDD. Check that it is plugged in. Does it get warm? Can you feel any vibrations from it? It should spin even if your cpu is dead but MoBo is alive.

Screen said please check video cable connection?

This is an indication that the monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer. Check both ends of the video cable - both the connection to the monitor as well as the connection to your computer's video card, and make sure that both are secure. If the connections are secure and the problem persists, buy a replacement video cable. If that fails to fix the issue, try swapping out a different video card.

If I were you I would remove the HDD from the computer and place it in an external enclosure, and then connect it via usb to another computer. This will allow you to retrieve the info you need. As for getting that computer back up and running, once you remove the files you need replace the HDD back into the system and reformat using the recovery CD's

it is a pretty good chance that your power source is broken, but another one is the mother board. take the source from your other computer and test it on this hp pavilion. if it doesn't start, take the cpu from the other computer and test it on this one, first with its original source and after with the source from the other one (the one with the cpu)

Monitor reads: PC entering power saving mode then shuts off;PC on

First do not take the hard drive out and put it in another computer. It is configured to run in the computer it's in.

Next, you probably did have a power surge either from your power supply or the power in your home. It sounds now like your power supply is damaged.

The processor does not have any gears; the sound you hear is most likely the fan in the power supply running too high.

Taking the battery out does nothing unless you move the jumper on the rtc to clear the CMOS. You should do that. You will have to get the computer running before you can transfer via USB to a flashdrive.

Unless you know what you are doing, you can ruin your computer just by touching components or the motherboard. You need to ground yourself first and make sure the computer is unplugged from the wall.

Here is what I recommend:

1. Get a grounding strap and hook it to your wrist and something to ground it. The package will tell you how.

2. Open the computer case and move the jumper to the proper location to drain the CMOS. (There will be 3 pins, and it will be on two of them. To ground it move the jumper to the uncovered pin and the one next to it. Leave it there a minute then remove it and out it back on the other two.

3. Be certain the two sticks of ram are properly inserted all the way in the slots; do not use brute strength.Leave the side cover off, and plug the Computer back in again. You should see a light come on after a few seconds. You should also see the power supply fan on.

4. Turn on your monitor and then boot your computer. If it comes to a screen that says it stopped abnormally, choose the last known good configuration.

5. you don't get that far you have worse problems, namely the motherboard or the powersupply. If it boots you should also hear the hard drive whirring.

If you can't get it going let us know. But one thing I'd like to convey to you. There is nothing in your conputer any reputable technician in a good shop will want. Neither will he put malware on your system.

Good luck!

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.

Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

I bought a power supply from ebay paid $22 with shipping thought it was better than getting a new scanner.
Screen is all Green and resolution is 72 no matter what the settings.
I guess it is time for a new scanner.
