It sounds like you have a hardware failure more than likely it is your motherboard and possibly your ram that have to be replaced. Life expectancy for almost all computer hardware is 3-5 years depending on how often it is used. If everything is securely connected as you say it is, your first step is going to be to replace the motherboard.

My printer will not turn on


First, try pressing and quickly releasing the Power button to start a Power On/Off cycle. Do not hold down the button. If this resolves the problem your done; if not continue on.

Inspect the power cord for visible damage; if damaged will need to contact HP to replace.

Disconnect the power supply (power module and cord) from the power source (wall socket) and the printer.

Test the power source, wall socket with or without your power bar or surge protector in place, with a small appliance you know works to confirm you have power. You may want to test the wall socket first and then test the power bar, etc. to make sure each component is not the problem.

If the appliance works then need to investigate the power supply. If the small appliance does not work you may need to check your electrical panel for a tripped breaker and possibly consult an electrician to check your electrical wiring.

To test the power supply plug in to the working power source; if the green light on the power supply does not light up you will need to contact HP to replace the power supply.

If the green light on the power supply lights up; reconnect to the printer.

Press and quickly release the Power button to turn the printer on. if the printer does not turn on you will need to check the USB cable.

Disconnect the USB cable from the printer.

Press the Power button to turn on the printer; if the printer turns on you will need to replace the USB cable.

If printer does not turn on, check the battery if your printer has one. A red light means the battery requires recharging; if it is still red after recharging, replace the battery.

If none of these steps resolve your issue before replacing the power supply try plugging the power supply directly in to a different working wall socket with no power bar or surge suppressor.; Press the power button.

If still no power to the printer you need to replace the power supply.

My hp pavilion a430n is not turning on. even though i pressed the power button the light wont even turn on. it is truly annoying and the screen says something about the power supply and green, red, blue...


I suggest to open your computer and unplug your power supply and look for the color green and black cord which plugged from your motherboard. Then find a piece of wire and short the color green and black wire to test if your power supply is working and plug to your power socket. And check your electronic parts (capacitor) near at your processor, it might your capacitor blown out.

No power on dell e520 dimension


On the 20 pin connector, short the green wire to any black wire with a paperclip. This will force the power supply to turn on manually if the motherboard is not giving the correct "ON" signal.

My power supply is blinking green light and my PC has no power


plug your pc directly to your wall outlet and see if it turns on. If it works, then the problem is your power supply. If power supply has a reset button, press it and try again. If pc does not turn on when plugged to wall outlet, then power supply for pc may be out.

Try unplugging, then plugging back in the 20/24pin power connector. When you plug in the power connector, make sure the power supply is OFF and the switch in the back is OFF and nothing is plugged into the computer.

EMachines not powering up


You may have updated windows to a point that this old machine cant handle the revamp. Kick back to an older ops system, although that poses security risks. Your motherboard may also have given up. Best advice - upgrade, and retire this machine to the recycle bin.

HP Media Center PC m7250n will not power up


hold the start button in and check the back of the case to see if the power supply fan turns while the power button is depressed. If it turns while the button is pushed, but then stops when you let off the button, then the power supply is probably bad and needs replacing.

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
