    its not the connector for me, the monitor works with other computers, and I tried using a PCI video card to no avail, it leads me to think its a motherboard, ram, or processor issue

Check the connector to the pc from the monitor. it may have come loose. if you have a mouse, try moving it and see if the light on the monitor turns to green. it is possible the video has failed.

An orange light would indicate there is not signal from the computer. Make sure the computer is on and you see lights on the front of it. Check the cable that runs from the monitor to the computer to see if it has worked loose.

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on


ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

I have a hp a350 cpu.the problem is that the light of led has gone red,as before in working condition it was green. It can't start.the power to hardisk is also not coming.please tell a sollution.


As you say has become red and no power to the hard disk.
First check the power cable for any loose connections and check if it give power to the cpu and the fan placed on processor starts working as you start the power. If fan it starts and with in few seconds stops then your power supply/SMPS is weak or damage. So replace it for proper working of your computer. And if after power on all fines but red led on monitor and no power to hard disk Try to replace the hard disk power cables because they are not working because of it no operating system is detected and led of monitor is red. After replacing hard disk cables hard disk starts working and still no display or red led on monitor check the vga cable for loose connection or replace it.If you are using vga display from graphic card try to get display first from onboard vga slot.After it your problem will disappear and your pc run smooth and fine.

Everything was working fine, then one day I switch...


Try to check your CPU unit it maybe have a power when you turn it on. Or just check their power suppy at the back when it works. If you check that all and it works normal just check inside your computer and try to see the Power LED (Light Emiting Diode) of the motherboard if have a light. Because if it is have a light your motherboard is good and if it is no light in the Power LED of the motherboard that was damage. But if your motherboard does not have installed Power LED try to check the CPU Fan it maybe works properly it because the CPU Fan was conncected in the motherboard if did not works the motherboard is also damage and need to replace. But if the CPU Fan was working properly, try to hold the CPU Heatsink if it is very hot the damage is your micro processor.

Computer won't start up


sounds like the cpu is dead, if your fan was full of dust theres a high chance it wasnt working properly for a while which would of caused the cpu to fry from lack of proper cooling and also the dust in the vents would have prevented heat from escapeing so its highly probable that the cpu is dead try replaceing it, i cannot gaurentee that anything else internally got fried from the heat tho, i had a similar problem a week ago

Check the switch of the power supply at the back (black button) First
If the power supply fan doesn't work or cpu fan doesn't work

I've seen situations similar to yours several times and they've always been a bad CPU.  Since you tried a new video card it's not that, I would suggest a new CPU.  Check on ebay, you can usually find used one's on there.
