Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a 6 month old HP Pavilion tower with monitor. I haven't used it in a month or so, and when I turned it on today, it seems to make more noise (i.e.-the fan) than it did before. In fact, it seemed very quiet before, whereas now it is quite loud. This I could handle, but it is also not booting up. I've tried two different monitors with it and nothing is showing up on the screen. Can you help?

Hp pavilion a1220n comptur will not start unplugged unit and when i plugged to back in it would not start


Do you see anything on the monitor screen? Does the tower make any beeping noise or clicking noise, or does the fan tries to start up when you power the computer on? Are the cables connected properly?
If you see anything on the monitor screen, or if you hear a beeping sound, let us know so we can diagnose further.

As you have already troubleshooted a lot ... but i want you to check by replacing power-supply (SMPS) in most of the cases such problem are created by faulty smps. No doubt it's getting on but SMPS can create such problem. So check with that if haven't check for it.

I strongly advise you to replace your old (VERY OLD!!) PC with new one. Do not worry, you will not lose any data from your old PC if you will take hard drive off your old PC and fix to new one. Anyway, if you still want to keep your old PC (NOT RECOMMENDED) you will have to buy new Power Supply and clean up your PC inside.

Sorry it IS the monitor this is a common problem, unfortunately, this is evidenced by the fact it still didn't work when connected to another machine,regardless of lack or message. Do a warranty claim.

I have a HP Pavilion 700 Desktop and I started a full scan with Norton and the computer was on for aday and ahalf so I turned it off and now the tower is making a beeping noise and the monitor is blank....


If it is making this noise when it is powering on and fails to get to the BIOS screen where all the white text flies up-- the PC suffered a hardware issue.

Power it off and leave it powered off for eight hours. Power it back on. If it powers on without the beeps, it was a heat related issue and will eventually crash again until that is addressed.

Hp pavilion a705w Light flashed in front and back on and off


Try a different monitor with your PC. If it does the same thing then you know the problem is with your PC. Also connect your PC to a different monitor. If it works OK then your monitor is bad. Does it beep at startup? Describe beep codes and someone on this website will decipher them for you. This might help to diagnose the problem.

HP a400n monitors


Sure but you shouldn't need to tell the computer what type of monitor it is, windows should simply send the signal to the monitor and poof up comes your display, more advanced versions may auto-detect or youc an select it in the control panel under display. Try craigslist to pick up a cheap monitor in your area. I got a 15'' flat for 20 bucks.

HP PAVILION 760n


tell me if there is something i need to know like: what were the things that you've doing with your computer before the problem happened?? are there any recent hardware/software changes?? tell also your OS- is it XP or Vista...

first, let's try to check if the problem is with the monitor or not,okey? try unplugging the monitor blue connector at the back of the tower.and make sure that your monitor is turned-on.If you can see a colored bars displayed.you monitor is okey.if not, try a known good monitor...if it woks the problem is with the old monitor.(resolved)

2 (if not)
Now, complelely turn off your computer and try reseating all the cables, and your hardware components such as memory,video card,IDE cable and so on. but before doing so, unplug the power cable and then push the power button to drain the power.after reseating everything, plug back the power cable and turn on computer.try listening to the tower,tell me if you can hear some beeps also.

if no video issue is still there, try putting a known good video card if you have any.if a known good video card works then the problem is with the old one..

if the problem is still there after everything that you've done try calling the manufacturer. this is lead to a motherboard problem but try to call them first.
