Question about HP Media Center m7060n PC Desktop

Hard Drive Won't Turn On

I have an HP Media Center m7060n PC. I shutdown my computer in order to move the desk/PC to a different corner on the same wall. When I tried to turn the computer back on the screen, speakers, printer, etc all turned on but the drive did not.

At the back of the computer there is a green flashing light, accompanied by a ticking sound. This light is on even when the power cord is removed. The fans do not come on either.

I know the computer was low on disc space, and I had been in the process of trying to make back up copies of all my music, pictures and home movies. I am very concerned that I have lost all this data.

We also have two laptops, and are set up wirelessly through an ethernet that is connected to the HP Media Center PC. Both of our laptops are still working.

Any help and advice would be appreciated!

Hello there

as silly as this may sound, have you checked the fuse on the PC power lead.

Many thanks

The computer will not turn. tested power supply and seems to by ok (fan spins)


HI:
The motherboard is responsible for turnin on the power supply, if the power supply fan is working then the system has started it initinal POST procedure. Try disconnecting any phrephial devices from the unit, starting with the Harddrive DVD Drive Etc. Also you may have a bad video processor on the motherboard, that is causing no video.

Hp media center power


hi friends, unpluug the power chord from the wall jack after that press and hold the power button in the front for about 15 seconds, connect the chord back in and try it. if it does the same then look at the rear side of the cpu box (where the power chord goes in and look for a small fan inside the power supply box, it has to be spinning). if not then the power supply (smps) has goen bad. now if the fan is sipnning try disconnecting all the extra periferals eg printer and stuff, still nogo then try opening the cpu box (reffer owners manual). take the RAM out and try to power up the system, if it starts beeping like beep ...beep... peeeep... then turn it off put the ram sticks back in and it should work fine...
NB:-for the owners manual check this out: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&product=470506&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
