This can be a faulty power supply or a damaged mother board. here's how you can confirm.

When pressing the power button, inspect the cooling fan that is located on the back of the power unit where the power cord plugs in. if the fan starts then stops immediately, this will confirm a damaged power supply.

Now, if the fan continues to operate but, the CPU doesn't start to power up and load the OS, thsi will confirm a mother board issue. replace the mother board in this case.

    ok, this will confirm that the power supply is damaged. it is unable to distribute the current through out the unit. replacing this failed power unit will fix this issue.

Hp desktop blinking green light won't come on


mine does that when it's in stand-by mode. I just push the power button and it comes on....

Assuming you've already tried that....push and hold the power-button down for 5 seconds and the power SHOULD go out. *IF* it does not, then disconnect the power cord in the back for 1min....then reconnect and try to boot. If it *DOES*, then do the same...unplug the power cord for 1min and reconnect and boot.

Hard drive fan stop working computer stop, yes I have power but but,computer will not tyrn on PC will not power up when I woke up this morning and went to use it the green light on the front was flashing...


Power supply light on or flashes Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure: CAUTION: This product contains components that are easily damaged by ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC.
  1. Disconnect everything from the computer, including the power cord.
  2. With the power cord disconnected , press the power button on the front of the computer for five seconds. Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps. NOTE: If the power supply fan makes an inconsistent grinding sound or stops and starts erratically, replace the power supply
  3. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position. Wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America. Performing this step ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region. Figure 4: Voltage selector switch c00517964.jpg Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
  4. Plug a lamp into the same outlet to see if the wall outlet has power. Try the computer in a different outlet in order to eliminate the outlet as a possible source of the issue. Test both to see if the wall outlets have power.
  5. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet. Test for power. If this fixes the issue, find the device that is causing the issue and do not use it. NOTE: If you find the device that was causing the problem was a surge protector, resetting a breaker or fuse on the surge protector may fix the issue.
  6. Remove all attached devices except for keyboard, mouse, and monitor.
  7. Remove any internal component that was recently added, such as video card, memory, CD, DVD, and hard drives. An added device may take more power than the power supply is rated for. If the problem goes away when the component is removed, the only option is to upgrade the power supply to power supply with a higher wattage rating.
  8. Check the power switch:
    1. With the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the front of the PC. The button should release easily and not stick in the socket.
      • If the button sticks, it should be replaced or serviced.
      • If the power button does not stick and appears to be functioning, continue using these steps.
    2. With the power cord disconnected, remove the case or side panel.
    3. Follow the wires from the power button on the front of the computer to their connection on the motherboard.
    4. Look at the power switch cables connected to the motherboard. If the cable has become disconnected, connect the power switch cable connector to the connector on the motherboard. Figure 5: Power switch connector on Motherboard c00517968.jpg
    5. Replace the side panel, plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.

Could be a glitch only. Try doing a power cycle: disconnect everything like the AC, battery or USB mouse, if applicable. Hold the power button for 10 seconds. Try to use only the AC, then the battery only, then both of them.
