    I had this problem for somewhile where the fans would start running when I switched the PC on but no signal would appear on the monitor. It sometimes took several reboots to get the PC started. On top of that, after 10-15 mins, if I did not actively use the PC it would go into standby / hibernation mode. When I re-activated it, I would again lose the signal to the monitor and I would have to reboot again maybe several times.

    Over the last couple of days, the PC has stopped doing anything aside from a flashing green power indicator. Any idea where I go from here?

If your network cable is plugged in it will flash green .....if it won't turn on pull the plug and wait 10 seconds or more then plug in again and see if it will start .....are the fans running and no signal to monitor?

    A new power supply may be in order ....Where your plug from wall plugs into the back of computer ...if you are willing to take the side cover off the computer and can get a good look at the mainboard (motherboard ) Check to see if there are any Capacitors that are bulging on the top ...they are the round cylinder looking things ...if there are some bulging instead of flat on top then the mainboard is going and needs to be replaced ....they can cause all kinds of wierd problems on the computer ...if they are all good then maby try a new power supply to see if that fixes the problem .

    hope that helps

Blinking green light on hp pavillion elite m9426f


If it's plugged in, getting power, a good place to start would be a PSU. Take a look at HP Support for more info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c01570954#N52

HP Pavilion a1020n will not power on.


The green LED light at the back of the Power Supply, is now a diagnostic LED light.

Tells you the Power Supply is bad.

HP Support > Pavilion a1020n Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=459880&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Solve a problem > Start-up / Shutdown / Power >
(No Thanks) > Power management,

Scroll down. Click on the + sign to the left of the blue -
Power supply light is on or flashes

(When the PC worked the green light stayed on constantly. You are correct)

Now,...
1) Is the computer dirty inside? Need to know how to properly clean it?
2) Would you like to know the easy test, to see if the problem may be a $5 ATX power on switch, or the Power Supply?

3) I also suggest you remove all ram memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean their gold plated contact pins, with an eraser.
There is a proper procedure for this.

Post in a Comment if you wish to know.

Hello. Re: HP Pavillion 7965 Where is the power switch located on the system unit?


Hi.

The on off switch is located in the front side, right below the drives.

Most HP PCs do not have PSU power switch at the back.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have an HP Pavilion a384x. It will not turn on


First with the computer turned off make sure the switch on the power supply is set to 115v.

If you turn the computer back on and you still get a flashing green light on the back of the power supply and a constant light on the front of the computer with no video, then try replacing the power supply with either a new one or a known working good one.

If that doesn't do it then it has to be the motherboard at that point.

Keep in mind normally on those power supplies, the green light should be constant. So it has to be either the power supply is bad or the moterboard is bad and you'll know when you put a new or known good working power supply in the computer.

Hp pavilion a503n


Hey, If you have switched out the power supply with known working and it still doesn't power up then it might be your motherboard has gone bad. What happened the last time the PC was on? Did you power it down normally and then it never came back on?
