Your monitor should have a light on it that indicates if it has signal, if the light stays yellow(or blinks) as the computer boots it is not getting the signal from the pc. Check the VGA cable on the back of your computer, it a big blue connecter, it has to be unscrewed and and disconnect it to verify that none of the pins are bent, plug it back in snugly and see what happens.

Remove hard drive from hp pavilion 790

Dear Anonymous, pages 11->19 show detailed instructions on removing/replacing the HDD on this model computer. N.B.: Make sure the jumper link on the socket end of the new HDD is in the same/equivalent position as the old HDD. (If in doubt "C.S." or "Cable Select" is always a safe position.) Kind regards - 'b'ye, Bruce Gilbert.

How do I transfer photos from an old HP Pavilion 6830 CPU to our new computer, a HP Pavilion a6750f?

easiest way would be to use a usb thumb drive. Better yest invest in an good external Hard drive - move all of your photo from old pc (use my computer - select folder and move) then connect the external hard drive to your new pc and "copy" to your new pc. when all done you even have a backup copy of your precious photos in external hard drive...

Will not boot

You might have a bad or worn out hard drive. After so many reloads of windows the drive can have problems. Try a different hard drive. And reload windows.

Connect projector to HP desktop

If you are attempting to connect an LCD projector to a laptop,you connect a monitor cable to your video card and the other end to the monitor input connector. You may have to use an adapter, I know on my LCD projector I had to use a DVI to VGA connector.
Can't say much more not knowing if you are having a problem with a particular brand of projector

Replacing power supply for pavilion 3000 desktop. How hard is it to do?

no it is not hard. Open the side of the computer then unscrew the screw that is at the back of the CPU. Remove the wires that's connected to the CD rom, hard drive and mother board before removing the whole power supply. then you can replace in that same position as you see the previous power supply.
