There are quite a few possibilities here. Do you leave your computer on while you're not home? If so, it's possible the computer overheated. If that happened, most likely you processor is damaged, and will have to be replaced. There may have been a power surge, which could have damaged the power suppply or the motherboard. It does nothing when you push the button? There's also a remote chance the switch is merely broken... though I can't say I've ever actually seen that happen. If it does absolutely nothing, it's most likely the power supply, however. If the motherboard or processor were bad, it would probably beep when you tried to turn it on. Not definitely, but probably.

HP pavilion a705W pc desktop/ on back by power plugin, green light is on, push power button to turn on, light goes out and nothing happens. I opened panels and observed light again on back lite green and...


if you have installed a new hardware, that might be the cause. specially if it is a video card. The wattage of your power supply might not be enough to run the computer. try to remove newly installed hardware such as video card. If there is none, you may try to remove the power for the hard drive and the dvd drive and check if it will turn on. Just bood in to bios..

if that works, then it definitely is the power supply. it cant provide sufficient power to your equipment..

hope that works.

regards.

It can be the power supply is sensing short circuits in the power supply itself or in the backlight inverter board, those are the two areas you need to inspect.

Look for bad caps with bulging top in the power supply first, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps (after about 2 years): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Power light blinking yellow after sitting a while


Unplug computer, disconnect all usb/monitor/internet, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop out the BIOS battery (looks like a big watch battery and use a small flathead screwdriver to depress the spring lock on one side), plug in computer, hold power button for about 20 seconds (must reset BIOS or something), let up on power button, wait 10 seconds and push power button. The computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stable (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

If this has worked you have proven that it's not the power supply (it turned on).

Go buy a new battery (CR2032 3 volt). Unplug computer, open it, hold power button until green led on the inside on the motherboard turns off, pop in new battery, plug in (you should notice the power button blinking amber again), hold power button until it stops blinking (about 20 sec....again must reset BIOS or something), wait 10 sec., push power button. the computer should turn on. Wait for it until activity seems stabe (1 min. or so). Push powerbutton to shut off.

Now, close case, plug in all usb/monitor/internet/etc. Power up computer. You'll get an internal floppy drive error. Push F2 (maybe F1) to get into the BIOS settings and go to "drives" and turn off the internal floppy. Save and exit. The computer should boot properly now.

This seems to be a big problem with the e510, my theory is that this one small battery is the root of most of these failures (as these computers usually fail after 1-2 years), not the power supply or the motherboard (heck, when you replace the motherboard it comes with a new one of these batteries...a several hundred dollar piece of hardware, with a $5 battery that will actually fix it).

Push Power button, green light goes on for a few seconds then nothing....


I would suggest taking a look at the power module if that can be replaced. The Fuse blowing may have only been the beginning of the problem. Any recent issues with under or over voltage in your home?

This could cause a problem, because modern TVs and most other entertainment electronic goods, have a small kind of computer chip, but there should be a Reset button probably inside the set! If you feel confident about computer chips you may be able to find the button by tracing the circuit.(Disconnected from the mains). Another idea is if there is a small button cell or battery inside, then try disconnecting it for a day. Good Luck!
