Okay. In that case plug back the power cable firmly and start the computer and get back to us with the result.

How do i change a power supply for hp slimline ?

There are three or four screws at the back of the system at the left side (as you face the back), remove them. Remove the top of the case. Disconnect the power cables from the power supply to the main circuit board (there may be two, but often just one 20 to 24 pin one, the second cable being 4 pin square for the CPU). Disconnect the power to the optical drive and to the hard drive. Slide the power supply toward the front of the system about 1/2 inch and pull up. Note, on some models the clearance is nearly none to none and you may need to remove the screws on the mainboard to slide the mainboard about 1/2 inch toward the right (as viewed facing the back of the system). To put the new power supply back, reverse the process.

I think that you need to open your tower and try to reconnect your cable from the mother board to the cd player. looks like only the power cable is connected.

When i turn the computer on theres no picture no sound and pretty sure its not powering anything on

Hi there,
please check if you can see any light or LED display when you press the power button.
If none. Check if the power cable is tight on the back of the computer and check if it's plugged into a power outlet.
You can also try plugging it into a different power outlet just to make sure it's not the Power outlet that has a problem.
You can also try to switch the power cables.
Hope this works, if it doesn't you will have to tear down the parts of the computer to check where the fault is coming from.

You can try to do a Power drain of the system ie disconnect all the cables from the pc and press and hold the power button of the tower for 30 to 40 sec. than reconnect only the keyboard the mouse and the monitor and turn it on. try to enter the BIOS page ( keep on tabbing the F10 key to enter BIOS is Windows Vista during the start up and F1 in Windows XP) and from their you can run a Smart test on the Hard drive. You can also try to boot the Pc to the safe mode and check whether the windows loads or not. From the Advanced boot option try to do a Start up repair.

HP Pavilion Slimline s3122x powers up fan runs

Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.
