Question about HP Pavilion a1130n (PX769AA) PC Desktop
Power button works intermittently. When it doesn't, a very light tap on the top of the case will put the power to the desktop. Inversely, there are power shutdowns that can occur at any time but the OS will usually boot up immediately on its own. A few times when it didn't I resorted to the tap on the case to get it back on. What is involved here with regards to changing out the switch and is it possible to do that. Problem has been with me for over a year now and is not fun when it shuts down in the middle of something. Nothing gets lost, I just have to start over.

There are only two ways this can go for you.
One- you need a new power supply
Two, you need a new mother board
You can verify the power supply by checking it on another machine
If the power suppy is good
And you do not hear the bios beep- then you are looking at a new motherboard- I would double check the powersupply first- most stores that sell them will let you check before you buy a new powersupply.

its definately not the motherboard, actually when a ps is about to spoil it starts giving that problem and also, the memory cards are also able to cause this problem too. but first, plz try changing ur ps and see if it works..

Which light?? the network light?? Do you get anything when you press the power button if not it is most likely the power supply since the motherborad is still showing power also may be cpu!
