Hold the power button in on the computer for 5 seconds. Wait another 5 seconds. Now hit the power button as you normally would to turn the PC on. It should boot normally.

    Unplug the power cable and wait 5-10 minutes and then plug it back in. Also, my original comment stated to hold the power button in for 5 seconds, and then hit it once normally, not just hold it for 5 seconds and thats it as you stated.

    Sorry for not seeing your update.

    Your power supply or motherboard needs to be replaced.

    If you can do the work yourself, start with the power supply.

    If you are not comfortable doing the work, consult a local computer shop for hardware diagnostics and replacement.

Go into power options, check to see if hibernate mode is enabled, uncheck box to the left to disable the feature, causes all kinds of problems from no startup to window file corruption, plus you free up a lot of disk space on the hard drive.

My computer...... an HP Pavillion a1630n..... was on this morning and I was working on it but the printer was not printing. I shut the computer down thinking it was just a glitch. However, when I pushed...

Behind every operation you do there is always an update that goes along with it. If you can re-open your computer and remove the power supply connector wait till 30 seconds and then reconnect the connector it will reset the motherboard for a moment and to sustain is to shut down the computer after the Windows Update completes the update on your system. A glitch will only happen when the system runs out of resources and then dumps everything into memory. If there is space in the memory then if not then it will crash definitely.

Hp pavillion dv7 won't power on

Same issue - solved by disconencting everything (main battery, CMOS battery, RAM, hard disk and wireless card). Held in power button for 20 seconds (HP say this removes any electostatic charge on the main board). Reconnected everything and machine booted to Windows. Ran HP's onboard diagnostics and everything checked out OK.

My hp desktop computer will not turn on

Most likely the power supply has failed. This is the device that the cord plugs into in the back of the computer. They can be purchased for around $20 - $50 depending on where you go. Then you just remove the four screws holding it in, remove all the internal plugins and reconnect the new power supply. Oh and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thanks! :c)
