I have an hp pavillion a6500f that soon as it is turned on has a constant alarm and is not sending a signal to the monitor. Screen says no signal and then remains black.


If you mean a constant beeping, open the case and see if the CPU fan is running, check also that the heatsink is firmly attached to the board, this noise usually points to a n overheating CPU, if you get no activity on screen,it is because there is no signal being sent to the monitor. Do not operate the computer until you have checked the fan is working, you need to establish if there is power getting to the fan by testing with a multimeter on the motherboard cpu fan pins. If you are getting power, replace the fan, worthwhile removing and regreasing the CPU and making sure it is firmly in place.

If there still is no signal, replace CPU, but also try a different graphics card (faulty video will give 9 beeps).

After that, check the ram is firmly in place.

When i turn on the computer, the fan keeps spinning and making noise and the monitor is black screen. i tried many ways to resolve it but unsuccessful.


If your monitor is black but everything is still spinning, first off if you have opened up your PC check for certain if everything is connected again properly (especially the 4 pin connector near the CPU) and also the cable to the monitor and the monitor's power cable of course.
First of all try to connect your monitor to another device and see if it works. If it does not then your monitor is broken. if it does, let's go to the next step.

If everything is connected properly inside the PC, the odds are very high that your CPU and/or motherboard are broken. If possible try replacing the CPU and motherboard with another one if you have one lying around. If you don't you can either buy a new CPU or motherboard or if you want to take the more simple way, which is actually more recommended, go to your local PC shop and have your PC fixed.

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.
