Question about HP Media Center m1080n (PC099A#ABA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Computer will not turn on. Power supply shows flashing green.

Computer appears completely dead. Will not turn on. None of the fans come on. When power supply is disconnected from motherboard, power supply light glows steady green. I suspect a failed component on the motherboard, though I suppose part of the power supply may have failed. Anybody got any ideas? What does it cost to buy a new motherboard?

Hey Bob,

Sorry I got cut off earlier.

Let me know what model numbers you pull off that motherboard and I'll see if I can track down the right one for you on the cheap.

Thanks!

Start up light flashes once and it won't power on


Most probable cause is the power supply. Look at the back of the computer, check the voltage settings located near the power cord. This will be the small red tab indicating two different settings, If your in the US it should be set to 115. Also, the power supply should run the internal fan when it is turned on.

To test the power supply try this:

Open your computer case and locate the gray box that is the power supply unit. Trace the wires from the power supply to the boards and devices and disconnect all the cables by unplugging them.

Find the big connector plugged on the the motherboard, make sure it is disconnected and short the two pins: (GREEN & BLACK) Short green pin (14) to GND (any black) to switch power supply ON, disconnect green from GND to switch OFF.

This will switch the power supply, you should hear or see the fan in the power supply spin. If you do not see the fan spinning, and your sure you have shorted the correct wires, you have a faulty power supply. If you see the fan spinning, you can now test the voltage coming out of the power supply.

Place a volt meter on the following colors to test voltage:

The color code for the wires is: Red = +5V, Black = Ground (0V), White = -5V, Yellow = +12V, Blue = -12V, Orange = +3.3V, Purple = +5V Standby (not used), Gray = power is on (output), and Green = Turn DC on (input).

I turned off the computer by going to shut down earlier today I went to turn it back on this evening and the CPU won't turn on


hello, make sure nothing has come unplugged and that none of the buttons are stuck on. With that said if this is an older pc, your power supply inside the case might have went out. power supplies go out quite often, replacing them is not to bad just make sure you have the correct physical and power size. Also verify that it has the connectors for that particular motherboard.
hope this helps

Compaq Presario SR2150NX doesn't turn on. Front panel green light turns on but nothing else happens (no fans, no boot, no noise, nothing) Please advice


On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

all atx powersupplies are generic-it dous not really matter what computer it comes from unless its a high end pc requiring loads of power-if your machine is intel you may need a supply with an extra twelve volt lead(two yellow and two black leads in a little block)-but for that pc i would just harvest a powerpack out of a dead machine

Try to turn on computer and the fan blows, but light jiggles and nothing happens. Hard drive shot or processor or ...???


Sounds like the power supply or the motherboard. If you have another computer available, you can test the power supply. Just "borrow" the power supply from the other computer. If it still won't come on, then the motherboard might be bad and you'll need replacement.

If you swap the power supply and the motherboard is bad, you will not hurt the working power supply. The motherboard is already dead and won't feed back to the working power supply.

Also, if you have flashed your BIOS recently and it has not completed successfully, you might have a dead motherboard and you will need to replace it. You would know if you flashed or updated your BIOS chip.

Hope this helps!

Pull your hard drive and install it as a slave on another machine. If you can't read from it there, your hard drive is toast.

When comp pluged in just a green flashing light


If you are sure that the 110 volt power is coming into the computer then the most likely problem is that th epower supply died. Obtain a new one of the same or larger wattagge as the one you are replacing . It does nto have to come from the manufacture of the computer.
