    Could be. But it could also be the HD, the graphics system, The CPU, the RAM or a loose connection somewhere.

    Any other symptoms? Do HDs spin? Does screen do anything? Any noises?

Pc not booting, no fans spinning, nothing lights up. HALP

Power light comes on for about 10 seconds, then blinks off. Nothing happens. No fan, just black screen and the power light lit for 10 seconds, then goes off

DV series had a bad problem with running to hot. Most of the time it had to do with the GPU. You can try reballing it with a heatgun, a little rosin flux. Once its reballed most people put a copper shim between the heatsink, and the gpu so that it gets better contact. If that doesn't work, I would verify that the power adapter is working ok, and that everything is hooked up (lcd, keyboard etc) when you are testing it. HP's , some of them don't like being turned on when they don't have everything hooked up. If all else doesn't work you'll need a new motherboard.

Computer will not come on loud sound from pavillion repeats it self. The fans will spin and the blue light on pavillion comes on. moniter screen will not come on the power light is on

On some computers, when you turn it on, the fan starts to run at 100% of its speed, i.e., very noisily.
Then, when it is detected that the computer is functioning, and _not_ over-heating, the fan will slow down, and quiet down.

So, what is the nature of the "loud sound" ?
Continuous? Beeps, in some pattern?

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for better trouble-shooting.

Hp desktop, 4 years old but in excellent shape, does not start anymore. Led in the back flashing green light very quickly.

If you mean that no fans or anything else spins, then it's probably that the power supply has died. I would suggest that the replacement be at least the same watts as the original or greater. Hopefully that's all it is.

Computer does not boot, blue on light lites up but

Now when you say blue power light, what are the rest of the lights doing, does the hard drive light flash, does the fans turn on, does the hard drive make it's spinning noise, if so you may just have a bad LCD inverter which is very common and about a 40$ part. you can test this by trying to hook the laptop up to an external monitor and see what happens.

My computer will not start.

No way to tell for sure, but the "messed up image with stripes" suggests a video component. Unfortunately most laptop components are not replaceable, which means you probably need a new laptop. Save your hard drive, the data on it is still there and you will be able to either copy the files you need or just connect it to your next computer.

HP Pavilion power up

You could have overheating problem
remove all plates from underneath that allows access to internals and blow out using a can of compressed air (from Radio Shack shop or similar) and ensure fan vent is clean and clear. then try it with all plates off if OK replace plates and try again. If still shuts down laptop requires stripping completely to clean

Laptop not living

When the laptop boots up can you press F2, F10 or DEL to enter a bios setup screen?
