What do you mean it powered on to the blue light?
Does anything show up on the screen?
Does the system usually beep when it starts? If so, does it beep now?

I own a hp pavilion slimline s3100n computer. Yesterday I turned it on and it kept freezing on me, so I did a system recovery and that helped nothing. Now when I turn it on the blue power light comes on...


I had a similar problem that when I turn on the power, the blue power light comes on but nothing occurs, even the bios page. For a while it succeeded to boot every several tries but it became necessary to try tens of times before it booted correctly. After it started the machine ran quite well, except when I make the machine sleep, then the machine would never wake up.
I found that the MB for s3100n has a common problem of this sort and HP even has sent out an email warning possible failure. When it actually happened to my machine it was too late: the warranty has expired more than a year. The replacement MB was above $250 and even if I buy it it is likely to fail again.
What I did instead was to get a microATX case with power supply, CPU cooler and a mother board and reuse all other parts from the failed s3100n. I wanted to reuse the DDR2-800 memory (my memory was upgraded) and athlon X2 4000+, so Asrock N68-S motherboard was a good choice. You can recycle HDD, DVD burner (SATA), card reader and wireless (internal USB), keyboard and mouse (PS2) as well. It was the first time I replaced a mother board but the case and mobo manual contained enough information to do the wiring. If your HDD is good Windows vista will boot in the new hardware. Get new drivers from Asrock/NVidia and install them to get the graphics and audio working correctly. Don't forget to re-activate Windows Vista using the product key which is stickered on the side of the s3100n chassis before you throw it away.

I have a s3100n hp slim line pavillion and thru hp tech support was advised to do a system recovery. when i tryed to reboot my system some programs were missing and they hp said that i need the recovery...


You must go into the BIOS on boot up and choose to boot from CD-Rom instead of the hard drive. When you first turn on your machine and the HP comes up push F10 key to get into the BIOS. Look for boot priorities and put the CD/DVD Rom in the first boot position (directions on how to move these item up/down are at the bottom of the page)

Then your disks will be useful. Put one in and reboot. It should read you disc and follow instructions from there.

Hope this helps you, good luck

How to restart hp pavillion 7965 desktop


Hi there. Try these steps:

1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.

2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.

3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.

4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...

PC not booting


the mother board can have a short and the green light is on, replace the motherboard. when the power box goes bad, most of the time it shorts the mother board out, this has happened to me a few times. Farren
