Question about Computers & Internet
My computer won't work . It's an HP pavilion a1730n and loved it immensely for school work. Of there's a solution please help . I can't afford a new computer .
On some of these, there is an internal circuit breaker on the power supply. You can try unplugging it, hold the power button down for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in. That can alow the power supply to reset.

Well, check out if you've properly working computer memory equipments, such as RAM and Hard disk drive. Also, keep your computer free from dust and clean if you found enough amount of dust laying around the CPU. This will make your CPU fan stopped working properly.
Apply these tactics and see if it helps you!!

Well you're getting power from the power supply at least so here's one thing you might try. Unplug the computer, pull the coin cell battery out of it's holder on the motherboard, wait awhile and put the battery back in. Plug the computer back in, power up and see if you get a bios screen showing on your monitor. If you can get into the BIOS you can change the boot order to have the computer boot from the CDROM drive and from there you can use diagnostic discs to see what the problem might be. You didn't seem to have any beep codes but a good disc to check your memory is one called MemTest86 that is free to download from the internet if you have another usable computer to do that. You say the fan is running louder so could be a bearing going in the fan but that would not cause your problem. Also check that all connectors are seated properly and make sure the CPU heatsink is still seated properly on the CPU. Reconnect your monitor making sure all connections are good and monitor is turned on. There are Linux live CDs that allow you to boot using the CD to test drive linux to verify that the motherboard is functioning without actually installing linux on your computer and you can check if it's your operating system or hard disk causing problems. Another thought would be to get yourself a DC voltmeter and check the various voltages coming from the power supply to verify they are in spec.
