Question about Computers & Internet
When I start my computer, the power button light does not turn on and the green light in the back is off. I've unplugged and plugged the power cord, nothing happens. I adjust the voltage button in the back when unplugged and still nothing happens. I use my hair dryer pointed at the PSU for about 90 seconds and the green light turns on, the motherboard light blinks, the CPU amber light blinks and I'm all set until I have to turn the computer on again. Can you tell me what's happening and what to do?

You bringing a marginal part or connection back up a working state. when it cools or voltage drops it goes to the non working state. hp power supplies are not good to begin with. replacing it will fix it till that one also fails

Did the switch on the power supply get bumped?
There will be a toggle switch. one side has O and other side has - . It needs to be on the - to turn on.

This is a case where something that is getting switched on during start-up is causing the power supply to fail... probably due to a short. How ever I believe the short is in the power supply
This is an older HP model ( I have a 530N) with teh same problem. I bought a new power supply and installed it.

Did you connect the p4 atx 12vx1 plug?
You may also need to connect the aux x1 plug on some models.
