Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I was traveling and apparently had a power surge in the Motel. After checking and talking to HP, concluded that the motherboard was blown. I replaced the motherboard but did not have any video. I found, however, that I had video when I hooked up to an external monitor. I replaced the inverter, cable, and then the screen and still no video (actually the ebay supplier sent another screen when the first one didn't work). Any other ideas of what I might try?? Thanks for your help. Darrell

    Was the replacement motherboard new, or a second hand spare?



    Make sure the connections from the board to the screen and inverter are all secure, and also that the cable from the board up through the hinge is not worn , as this would also lead to a failure of the screen.

If i were you i would go get a new laptop. Sounds like something is shorting out on the motherboard. like metal touching the case.

My compaq sr1020nx wont turn on. green lite on power supply is blinking. power company turned off power and when it came back on this is what i found. computer was hooked up to a surge protector.


Surge protectors blow with excesive power not with drop and return spikes, and that doesnt still promise that it will not kill power supplies and motherboards. I would suggest a new power supply as they are all standard then see if it works. If not your motherboard maybe shot if it was on while it happened.

On HP computers, I believe that this means that the power supply or the motherboard is bad. I assume that the outage was due to the thunderstorm and you may have received a surge. In your manual, there should be diagnostic light codes where they will outline the exact meaning. Again, to the best of my knowledge, this means that there is a bad power supply or a motherboard.

Make sure you have enough power (wall outlet, Surge Protector (MUST HAVE A GOOD ONE)
And Double Check that the Power Cable is 3-pronged, NOT one that someone pulled the ground pin off of!!! THATS BAD!!!

Or you just got a bad Power Cable,

Also Make sure you have a BIG power supply (I recommend at least 450 watt PS!

Check this all as if it was a checklist.....so far I believe your motherboard is just fine......the problem is somewhere between your Outlet, Power Cable, and Surge Protector (I really hope you are running it on one.....Never run any computer or Valuable components without one!)

I only mention that because some people don't realize the importance of surge protectors)

In addition to your power supply, your motherboard was also probably affected by the surge. Most surges do damage beyond the motherboard. The power supply is still supplying power to it, which is why the fan runs and power lights come on, but it probably isn't doing much more then that. You might want to start looking for a motherboard replacement. The best and most inexpensive place is www.tigerdirect.com.

When I turn on my computer nothing happens but the light flashes?


A lightening strike!!!!!! The power surge from a strike could have blown the computer's motherboard and processor. Did you have any surge protection and was the computer on at the time? chances are the computers fried.
There is one last thing you can do, that is remove the side panel from the desktop so you can see the motherboard, you will see a battery like this >>ecb2000.jpg. Near to the battery you will see a plastic "jumper" this will reset the cmos if you move it to the other position, turn the pc on, if nothing happens the cmos has been cleared, put the jumper back in its original position and start the computer again, if you still get nothing them some if not all the components inside the computer has been fried.

Good luck

Hp pavillon won't start-up


Open your computer case and plug the computer in. Look for any LEDs on the motherboard. A power surge can damage any and all components in the system. The only easy way to test the power supply is check it in a working computer. But if you get another power supply you can hook it to your system to see if the problem goes away. Power supplies can be found used for less than $20, look in your area for a place that sells used computers.

HP M1050Y - not powering up after power surge


The green light at back is probably the NIC or network interface card, which means the computer is receiving power. Just not enough apparently. Try changing the power cords from being plugged into the surge protector to being plugged dirctly into wall socket. When you do this take the ethernet cable out before turning it ON.
