It sounds like a dead motherboard. Try removing the CMOS(BIOS) battery and replacing it. Then try removing and replacing the CPU as well. If you get the same result then you might be looking at replacing the motherboard.

Your problem is the memory . YOu have to put off the pc and remove the memory card in the slot. Then clean the silver pins in your memory with a rubber eraser. Put it back and see if the BIOS will be prompted on the screen , if not you have to replace the memory.

It could be the motherboard, try resetting the the bios first by either taking the lithium cmos battery out and then replacing after 30 secs or finding the the cmos jumber and unshort it for 30 secs, and reboot the mechine.

If the same and no monitor responce then the onboard graphic electronics may have failed, the motherboard does have a AGP expansion slot which you may want to test with a graphics card to see if that will work.

If you find that you do have to replace the motherboard, try to find one that uses the same processor and memory that you already have, that way you will keep expence down to a minimal.

Replacing the motherboard will mean you will have to contact microsoft to give you the installation codes for the operating system to work with the new motherboard, when you boot for the first time with the new motherboard fitted you will have to phone the number on the screen to reregister the system just follow the instructions, it is quite self explanetry.

Once all booted up and drivers installed the computer should run as normal, as for the hp recovery disks it should still work as all the information on the disk is on the harddrive any way, the only thing you would need to do is keep the motherboard installation disk with all the drivers on.
hope this helps.

Pavilion s3620f has no video and won't boot

There could be many reasons for this. Open the case and make sure the components are plugged in tightly. Make sure the CPU Fan is spinning and is dust free.Reseat the RAM modules, make sure to clean the RAM slots before reseating the modules. If all this fails to give results, but a new power supply and try that, you do not have to install the power supply but can keep it outside and test it. If the MB is gone, then, look to see if she still has warranty, if not ebay may be a cheap answer for the same MB.
