Hp pavillion a850y

We had a Power surge alert in our area through the night from our power company, so we closed down all systems and turned back all our electronics this morning. Everything came back on except my PC which is a HP Pavilion a850y unit. I had turned the unit off before I switched off the Power Surger. But when I turned it back on this morning I then pushed the PC ON button and nothing happened, the Screen did go on! I looked at the back of the unit and a little green light was blinking. I was told it was the Power unit, so I replaced it and still no power! Could the problem be the ON button? Please help! Thanks Paul D.

It is unlikely to be the switch itself. Check that the memory is seated correctly on the motherboard, as it won't boot without it. Otherwise it sounds like the motherboard itself is shot. Sorry for the

It seems like the battery is not getting charged.
When it is running on AC power, does the battery show as "charging" or as "100%-charged" ?

It may be necessary to replace the battery -- search on 'www.ebay.com' for a compatible replacement.

Likely a power surge hit your house while away. This happens when power turns back on or lightning hits close to your house. If insured, call insurance company about it. You may be covered for replacement or have deductible applied. Small appliances like this are most susceptible to power surge. There is not enough protection designed in.. The best protection is surge module on main breaker panel or buy a protected power strip to protect high value electronics.

Have you tried resetting the battery? Sometimes they can be loose and need to be taken out then put back in. If not I would try either a different charger or buy a new battery.

Power to house went out during area power outage. Everything came back on except the computer? Tries to restart by holding power switch in, unplugged and replugged power cord - no response on monitor. ...


When the power is returned after a power outage it can cause a power surge and damage electronic equipment such as a computer. This is a reason to install a surge protection power board and connect your computer equipment to a surge protection board.
The switch mode power supply may be faulty and replacing it may get your computer operating again.
If you cannot DIY then ask a friend or take it to a computer repair shop.

Hi there,

First, check to make sure the power cable is plugged properly in the back of the monitor and into the surge protector. You can try a different power outlet, but if you're still having the same problem and the light isn't turning on, it's likely you've either blown the fuse inside the monitor, or you had a power surge and blown something inside the monitor. This happens when you don't use a surge protector and just plug the monitor into the wall.

That said, if the above doesn't work then you have a hardware problem with your monitor and it needs to be serviced.

Unplug the unit, and remove the battery. This will shut the machine off completely. You do not need to let the battery die out. Then power the unit on again. If the issue is gone, consider turning off hibernation ( power options inside control panel)

As long as your PC has the proper pci, apg or pci-e slot then it shouldnt be a problem. You also have to look at the cards specs and make sure your PC has the right amout of wattage to power the card. Also make sure you have the right power connector inside the PC. I would think that card would have a 4pinn female molex connector. You should have an extra one inside your PC case.
