Switch on your computer and go to bios and check if your system restarts.

Robert, I recommend you to open the chassis cover and check if there is any obstruction of any air vent. Meanwhile, if you can hear a loud fan spinning of the CPU heatsink, you might have to replace the thermal paste, the instruction http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/134.

If the problem still persist, don forget to come back here. I will try my best to help you.

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...


If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.

HP Desktop goes into a quick black screen then comes back frozen?


If you did mention the measures you've already taken, i can narrow down the troubleshooting tips. Anyway, please follow the steps below (if you haven't done).
  1. Restore the system to the previous state before you updated the windows.
  2. Clean the heat sink and apply some more coolant paste.
  3. Boot into Safe Mode and check if the problem still persists or not.
Do let me know how far you've done and the results of the above three measures.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Computer shuts down


Almost certainly an overheating problem. Speed Fan will provide a temperature monitoring solution if you don't have one built-in: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php This program will also give you S.M.A.R.T. info. Open the case and look for dust bunnies, especially in the heat sink and fan areas.
