Ebay lists dozens of computer power supply testers.
Get one with the LCD display which is much more accurate than light bulbs.
You should't be paying over $20 for one including shipping.
Watch out for the $5 ones that have $15 shipping.
Have a nice day.

I am looking for a schematic for a Dell Optiplex GX280 power supply. The supply is model HP-U2106F3.


I just replaced my GX280 power supply (mini-tower) with the following 400W for $30.

The only place I can think you will find an actual schematic for the PSU is from the manufacturer.

Hp pavillion 620n will not power on the light in the back is flashing was told it is the power board someone. Can this be true and can it be replaced?


To determine the cause of the problem, disconnect all power cords from everything in your machine, and if the light is off, your power supply is bad. If the light stays on, something else in your computer is bad. Most likely the motherboard, but also possibly the processor.

Hi. Have just turned on my HP Pavillion m8000 and the screen and it does nothing. The screen is getting no signal and even though the computer is on, it isn't starting up as usual. Help!!! I've checked all...


hi

it could be that your power supply (from tower) is not working -- does the fan blow out air ?
if not replace the power supply. If the power supply is on but no video on screen showing , it could be your mainboard inside the tower, thats if no noise is coming from the tower.

what were the circumstances when you worked on he computer ? was it plugged in overnight while running or was the power cord attached to tower while plugged into wall ? if so, it mnay have experienced a power surge and blew the mainboard.. too much current going to tower could blow the power supply, causing the mainboard to have received excess current

go to this link and rewview some infromation about your PC issue(s)

Whom ever told you too: "Unplug the cpu while holding down the power button".

Is telling you something that can "seriously damage" your cpu and computer.

Or did you mean "PSU" if so there is a particular format to do a Power supply check.
For the proper way use this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06788&lc=en&cc=us&product=405227&dlc=en&lang=en#N207

Also many other things can cause the problems your having. Could be your motherboard too.

If this does not work, post again be sure to include HP Pavillion Model number and Operating System (i.e. XP, 7 or Vista) that way we can help pin point your system needs. Also have you done any internal repairs lately? Recheck all your connections too.

If you find this helpful please vote.

My friend has just moved and his comp was working before. But now when plugged into power the tower has no power. Any suggestions to what might be going wrong?


firdt check another outlet ,that outlet maybe dead. then check if the power cord is properly seated in the plug at back of tower, then check if it has a reset button power supply, then open the case and check if duing moving the inside power connection came loose. check all the connections, then If it still wont work, either the power supply went dead or somehow the system motherborad fried

My hp pavillion a 1140n desktop will not power up. I already changed the power supply. No luck


just for giggles, if you open the tower and look closely at the bottom right side of your motherboard there should be wires there. the wires themselves shouls be labelled like led light, reset and so forth, now if you look at the motherboard were these are located there should be labels there for each wire. make sure they are all connected and didnt come off for the sake of coming off because they only slide on, make sure everything is in the right place coming from the power button of the front of the tower.
i had the same problem and the main power slipped off somehow, and thats all it was, just the one wire

hope it helps you

HP Pavillion 400 Power switch problem???


Could be your power supply is broken. That is a very common problem. Sometimes the computer will keep on restarting when the power supply is about to give way. I doubt it's the motherboard that is causing the problem, but then again i have never had a motherboard fail on me.

Hp pavillion desktop will not power up. Blinking green light at power supply


Step 1 : Turn off the system by pressing the power button for 5 - 10 sec until the power LED is off. Removed all cables including the power cable (Exclude monitor cable and KeyBoard/Mouse).

Step 2 : Press power button for 5-10 sec again to drain fela power.

Step 3 : Reconnect the power cable at the back of the tower/computer and power on the system.

**If the same problem exists, Call HP tech Support (800-474-6836) because there is a high possibility that you have a bad Motherboard or Power Supply on the system.
