Sounds like you have a bad motherboard. Bad mother boards give alot of different signs and 1 is no screen display. If it was a a bad HD you would still see something on the screen

Before calling it quits on the motherboard, try disconnecting ALL non-essential devices from the motherboard.

This includes drive cables, all slot mounted cards, etc.

Leave the processor and ram in place. Make sure ALL power cords from the power supply to the motherboard are properly plugged in. Some power supplies have 2 cords to the motherboard, a large plug and possibly a separate 4 pin that plugs in near the CPU. After checking your plugs, see if the board will power up. If so, you should get some beeps or status lights. If not, then it is likely the board has failed. Since you have replaced the original power supply, (assuming the replacement is compatible), it is not likely you have 2 bad power supplies.

If the board DOES power up, then plug in 1 internal device at a time to determine what might be "killing" the boot. A bad hard drive or DVD/CD drive can cause this as well as a shorted USB or firewire device.

No power through mb. CPU and case fans start then stop. Monitor does not come on, HD does not kick. HD access light is constant. green light in back stays on, but computer does nothing else.


make sure this hard drive is getting power

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit

one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

My hp 530 doesn't post at all, behaviour is the same whether has ram, hard drive or dvd drive inserted or not


Hp has had problems with video chip getting hot and making a weak connection to the MB. By your pulling the ram,HDD and DVD drive you've helped narrow it down. If you have a wireless card you can try and start it up without that but I'd imagine the results will be the same. I'll have to guess the power button only illuminates momentarily then goes right back off. If this isn't happening is it possible you damaged the power connection on your MB and the battery failed to charge and now the power adapter can't get power to it either (does the charge light come on) when the AC adapter is plugged in ?

Charging light not coming on


Good day sir, my guess is that your adapter is the culprit, if you have access to another charger please use it, if you may have the time, try to visit your dealer, and they be wiling to test your adapter. Other causes may be the charger DC port, or the battery, but let us stick first to the common adapter problem, hope this helps.
