HP Slimline s7527c motherboard needs replacing

The usb ports don't work and I had the computer checked. He said Motherboard bad. It has a pentium M mobo in it which seem to be costly and not that available. I realize if I change mobo I probably will need to change some other things. The young man suggested I put in a pci-usb port as a cheaper option. I would have to take out my modem card (which I am not using now) to do this. Any suggestions on specific Mobo combos, or what to do in this situation.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s3700y that doesn't always boot. Power is getting to the computer; the light on the back lights up as well as the lights on the front. However, power doesn't seem to...


If you saying "doesn't always boot", most common would be motherboard...
If your motherboard still beeps, then probably some other components has the problem like RAM, GPU card etc., depends on your motherboard.

Hope that give an idea...

Not an driver problem. Your front USB ports cable not connected with motherboard. Connect the cable in USB jack in the motherboard. Some time no cable inside the cabinet, in case buy new cable and connect it.

Hp slimline computer cannot bring up keyboard and monitor


Buggy Motherboard... could be the BIOS could use an upgrade, Bad Battery on MB, or MB could just be bad. Data on you drive is good and recoverable. New PC ? Buy.com a Referb Box is a good choice if you are on a budget. A Turion Processor is not worth the expense to fix in my opinion. If you can do it youself,for fun, replace Motherboard, HD and CPU and re-use the rest. Buying a new one, even a real cheep one is a less frustrating solution.

HP Pavilion Slimline s3122x powers up fan runs


Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.

Mouse and keyboard have no power


If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
A) if devices are USB :
- defective USB port : chose another USB port;
- USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
- motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
B) if devices are PS/2 :
- damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
- motherboard defective : replace it.

HP Slimline Pavillion s3123w monitor going to sleep.


Sounds like the motherboard might be bad but go thru these steps.


Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at at time and turn on the computer after each stick reinsertion.


If that doesn't get the video to come back up then go ahead and unseat and reseat the CPU. Then try turning on the computer.

If that doesn't do it, make sure there is no power going to the hard drive or the dvd drive. Then try turning on the computer.

If you do all of these steps and you still have no video, then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

My HP Pavilion computer unit will not turn on. Have tried unplugging, replugging; all the cords/plugs look good. Unit is quite old (at least 10 years). Monitor still seems to work. Is it dead?


Could simply be your power supply. Please check that the power cord is connected to the computer and that the power supply switch (located in the back next to where the power cord plugs into the computer) is in the on position( I = on 0= off). IF the power cord is plugged into a working outlet and the power supply is on then it can only be one of two things. You have a bad power supply( easy fix that will only cost you about $50 or less) or your motherboard is bad. If you took this into a shop for repair they would pull out the power supply and replace it with a know working one. If that does not fix the problem then they would tell you your motherboard is bad. Power supplies are fairly easy to replace and, for your unit, very cheap, about $15 from newegg.
