Hi I am Vortash try this s a test .. disconect all cd and Hd drives and any external connections including printer etc .
Turn the computer on and see if it does the same thing if it loads the fiirst part of the start up ie: the bios start up and says no opperating system or words to that effect the computer board and processor are probably ok . connect the drives one at a time and start up till the problem re occurs starting with the hard drive .. you may have to get into the bios and make sure the HD is showing and if not set the ide or sata on auto so the computer finds it .. press F10 save and exit then re-start .. if you still get no luck getback to me I will monitor your progress on here . Regards Voratsh

    Hi ok then from the sounds of it either one of three things have happened .. you have a power supply fault and it is possible you have lost one of your voltage rails or your cpu is corrupt or faulty or your bios has a fault either way I dont think your going to get much joy wtih a question on here this is a hands on job .

    It would be amazingly lucky if someone did drop on the fault as there are so many things at this stage it could be . This is not a software problem it's a hardware fault and that takes an engineer with a first hand view of the unit and able to do some detailed investigation Regards Vortash

    I have just thought of something else it could be .. faulty Ram if you have more than one slot of ram take one out and try startup if it don't work take the other out and replace it with the first one you removed .. as faulty ram can do this sort of thing ... Vortash

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on

ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

Dell e5420 wont start up at all

Make sure no accessories are plugged into your laptop. First remove the battery and try a bootup. If does not bootup, remove the hard drive if you can and try again. If still no full boot, you can try the DVD drive and then the memory. Replace what you have found to be the problem. If none solves the bootup problem, it is either the power supply itself or a mainboard problem, which would required service from an authorized service center from Dell. Verify the center with Dell. The parts I have indicated to try are normally easily removed from the bottom of the laptop, by removing a few small screws.

Compaq Presario SR1030NX fails to start

Sounds like the power supply or motherboard is biting the dust. U may consider power off, open case and clean out the dirt, check U'r connections and if the power supply smells, replace it.
Else replace the pc. When the power supply dies, it usually stresses the motherboard out and it dies later, sooner.
