The system looks dead, but test the power cord in another socket. Once you get power the light should be on even if the PC is not turned on.

If you fail to get any power, then swap out the cord. The are all alike, so ask friend for testing if you don't have a spare.

If continues to fail, then the power supply is simply bad on the PC.

SOURCE: hp pavilion a6300f downgrade to xp where can i

You have to find the XP drivers for each individual component since HP doesn't want you to downgrade to XP. Your specs can be found at:

The chipset drivers can be found here: 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i&By=NVidia&SS=Windows XP
I can't get that link to copy over, so typ everything from http until =Windows XP in your address bar.
The HP site doesn't seem to be component-specific on any others, but If you know what Win XP is trying to install, but can't find the drivers for, google those, and a few more dowloads later you should be golden.

SOURCE: need motherboard for hp a6300f

I suppose you could get one from HP for big bucks, but I would suggest you try E-Bay. You are likely to find a used one at a much more reasonable price.

SOURCE: My HP Pavilion a6300f powers up but no signal to the monitor

It could be the motherboard, try resetting the the bios first by either taking the lithium cmos battery out and then replacing after 30 secs or finding the the cmos jumber and unshort it for 30 secs, and reboot the mechine.

If the same and no monitor responce then the onboard graphic electronics may have failed, the motherboard does have a AGP expansion slot which you may want to test with a graphics card to see if that will work.

If you find that you do have to replace the motherboard, try to find one that uses the same processor and memory that you already have, that way you will keep expence down to a minimal.

Replacing the motherboard will mean you will have to contact microsoft to give you the installation codes for the operating system to work with the new motherboard, when you boot for the first time with the new motherboard fitted you will have to phone the number on the screen to reregister the system just follow the instructions, it is quite self explanetry.

Once all booted up and drivers installed the computer should run as normal, as for the hp recovery disks it should still work as all the information on the disk is on the harddrive any way, the only thing you would need to do is keep the motherboard installation disk with all the drivers on.
hope this helps.

A6300f won't boot. Monitor says 'no signal'

  1. You either have a dead video card, a bad video card slot, or a bad cable connection, or a faulty monitor.
  2. 1. plug in the monitor with the same cable to another pc to see if it works.
  3. Plug in the video card into another pc to see if it works.
  4. Plug in another video card into the video slot on your motherboard to see if it works.
Good luck
