Hp tower not working - Computers & Internet

Posted by on

  • hondoroni Apr 03, 2009

    The on/off switch on my tower has stopped working. Several months ago, it started giving me fits, but I was always able to get the computer on my conintually pressing the on switch on the front of the tower., When this became harder and harder to do, I just decided I would cut the computer off at the power source and then turn that source back on in the am. Last night, I stopidly decided to shut it down. Now I cant get it back on., When it is plugged in, there is a green light on the back of the tower that comes on, but I cant get the on button on the front of the towerr to start things up. Is there any other way to get this going? I really did think I had just a loose connection somewhere. I really cant afford an expensive repair right now and if I could get it on, I would just leave it on for as long as necessary. Tthank you!

If you have the machine plugged in and you push the on/off switch and nothing happens (no sound, no lights, no action) then most likely your power supply has died. Good news is that it's easily replaced and is not very expensive.
Now if you mean that it turns on and THEN nothing happens, you have a much more complicated problem.
Let us know.

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

My hp2009m monitor goes into sleep mode


Monitors are programmed to go to sleep when there is no input. If you shut it down on the other "tower" also it will do the same. You need to physically hit the power button on the monitor to actually shut it off.
