First try removing the hard drive,and turn on the power. If the screen
is till blank then either the memory sticks are no good,or the power
supply to the screen could be tripping. But if the screen is not blank
then your "MBR" (media boot record) is missing or off track.

Re: 304w hp wont load
Try pulling the plug from the back of the machine or the wall and then plug it back in and see if it will come up. It may be stuck in what I call a voltage loop. You can also try re-seating the card and memory and making sure the cable from the monitor is connected firmly. If it doesn't do anything it is possible that either the video card is going bad, the power supply is failing, memory is bad or possibly the motherboard is shot. Let me know if I can help any further.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
You have done a lot of the basic maintenance steps. You might want to try and reseat the CPU. Sometimes they "creep out of their sockets because to the heat. Also, check to make sure the CPU fan is running if you are sure the power supply works. Without a fan, the CPU can overheat and produce your symptoms. Hope this helps.
your card is pulling too much power. check the wattage rating of the card and the wattage output of your power supply . good rule of thumb you want about 20% more that your card rating 450 watt card needs 650 watt power supply to run well. the extra is for your other stuff (dvd burner ,ect)
Hi, couple main reasons to get loud clicking in a computer. First is the hard drive, so if you can turn the system off and disconnect the power and the information cable from the hard drive, yes your computer will not boot all the way back into windows but that is ok since you just want it running for awhile to see if the clicking stops. Next thing would definitely be the fans, any fan in the system, the blade part of the fans can get loose sometimes and start to hit the sides as it spins around, you need to be sure about which part it is that is causing it, it can come from the power supply fan, the case fan, the video card fan, the cpu fan, and you might have more than one case fan, test by disconnecting one at a time just make sure to disconnect the device too so you do not over heat anything. Once you identify which fan just replace it, if its something like power supply or video card, unfortunately you might want to look into either warrantying the part or buying a new one.
it could be your graphics card going, before purchasin a new 1, check that all your fans are working and that your cpu cooling fan or heatsink has not come loose. those type of problems cause the computer to shut down because of overheat. last but not least your hard drive can be going bad and its hitting bad sectors causing it to shut down or freeze.
Hey I am also facing same problem.But My card was woorking fie before yesterday. I bought a new CPU cabinet> so had to remove nad reinsert the GFX card and it giving me the same problem as you are facing.... i.e. the fan is moving but screen is blank

hi im wesley iv had the same problem before with my compute. the problem might be i broken ide cable or a loose connection make sure the all cables in your pc is connected properly and if so change a few of the cables if it doesnt work you might have to get a new hard drive and also check if your cpu is in properly and not moving around at all then go into your bios and check the temprature pf the cpu and try running a health test from the bios it might be you fan isnt making proper connection with the cpu causing it to over heat and automaticall switching off for safety.
