HP power up issue

My hp was shut down inccorectly (someone pressed the power button) while another person was surfing the net. Now the pc won'w power up at all. The model is a hp Media Center PC m7664x. I've tried two different power cords and removing all the other perificals and no such luck. Not even a power light on the front. I do however get a light glowing green light on the back directly behind the power pack. Any thoughts?? All are welcome...

    Thanks for Trying!




    I removed the power cable and held the power button for 7 sec w/o power cable and then tried to connect the power cable and turn on



    (Nothing happened)

    2) I reconnected power connector on the mother board and tred it


    (Nothing happened)


    3) I removed the memory and couldn't hear a beep beep! What does that mean?



    I didn't remove the PCI cards as you required only if I heard the beep on the memory.



    Any more ideas? Thanks!!

Hi
you will have to remove the power cable and hold the power button for 7 sec w/o power cable and then try connection the power cable and turn on

2) reset the power connector on the mother board and try it

3) remove the memory and chk if you could listen to the beep if yes the mother board and power supply is fine so try removing the pci cards if any

Try those things

Regards

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up (and power switch does nothing!)


Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

To wake it up,first try just quickly pressing the power switch on front. If worse comes to worse,just turn it off by holding the power button in until the pc shuts down & simply power it back on. Then you'll be able to get into windows & make the proper adjustments for the power settings you want & be able to configure the keyboard to put the pc to sleep or wake it. The above link is straight from hp,reguarding the same issue. I gave it to you for reference.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.
