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.

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.

Cheers

    Sounds like either the video card is bad or possibly the motherboard. I have see bad power supplies cause that too. Start with a video card and go from there.

HP media center pc ,1170n will not boot. black screen. You can hear the fan come on but black screen.


Sounds like a capacitor has blown on the motherboard, but before condemning it, check the following:
1.) Does the CPU fan turn and does the heatsink get warm after a few minutes?
(This indicates that power is at least getting to the CPU
2.) Check connections of ALL the main power connectors (ie: the 20/24 pin plug to the mainboard and the smaller 4 pin plug to the mainboard.
(If not firmly inserted will stop the board from firing up)
3.) Check the graphics card is firmly seated and test with anew graphics card to eliminate the issue being with the graphics card / check tightness of the VGA cable to monitor and card
4.) Remove all but the main power and 4 pin power plugs and try rebooting to eliminate hard drive or DVD drive failure
5.) Remove and replace each ram module in turn try booting in between
6.) If you have a spare PSU, replace the existing one and test the board using that, sometimes the PSU appears to work, but lacks power to fire up the board.

After all that, you are down to the mobo or CPU, you can try a new CPU, but I feel that the issue is with a blown capacitor or a burned circuit trace, only close inspection of the mobo will reveal bulging, leaking or blown capacitiors (small cylinder like things on the motherboard)

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot


Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

Hello. Try a different hard drive. I have only seen a couple machines do this, but replacing the hard drive fixed it both times. Thanks!

On powering on'the screen remains black and the ethernet plug is flickering. no sound from the hard drive


the hard drive could have failed..Try a hard start to see if it will react. Do you get any beeps?? a warning beep or beeps may indicate a hard drive failure. Try to get into C-Mode set up. click alt/cntrl/del as you turn on the set.or alt/cntrl F10. Hard drive failures can happen if ther is to much written to the drive or just a plain 'Crash'.

Check that the hard drive connectors have not become loose on the board or the drive. Also check you havent lost a little black jumper off the back of the drive.
