HP won't power up

My screen was black last night so I tried to turn it off by pressing the power button which it lit up itself. (HP Pav. Desktop) It wouldn't shut off by pressing the button so I unpluged it and went to bed. this morning I plugged it in and the power light just flashes and the unit does not come on. Any ideas?

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N occasionally turns itself off. Timing varies and the condition varies. Usually the screen just goes black - from seconds to hours after it is turned on - the blue LED remains...

This could be because of the 'eco' friendliness of the monitor. Basically a lot of monitors are designed to turn off into a low power state when not in use so to preserve power and life of the monitor. I would return the monitor as the sensors that control this seem to be broken in your monitor.

If you are using a laptop, you might have pressed the button to switch from LCD to external display. The key combination depends on your laptop model, but it is usually Fn+F4 or some other function key. Look for a function key that also has an icon looking something like an external monitor. 48d40f3.jpg Try pressing function and that key a couple times to see what happens.

First of all, boot your system without the monitor connected to it and when you feel that it's booted upto logon screen (or if you haven't assign password it'll directly logon to the desktop, power on the speaker to make sure you can know it's done) connect the monitor. If this isn't successful, please turn off the system and remove the cmos battery, leave it outside for few minutes and again reinstall it. Boot again normally. Still having the same problem? then let's try another method. Did you see the bios loading (black screen with white text during startup) when you power on the system? If so, press F8 several times while it is booting and select "Safe Mode" and restore your system to previous state. Do let me know if this isn't possible. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

Guest, You will need to "sub-in" a known-good monitor to prove your pc is working ok! If pc is ok, then plug-in bad lcd monitor and check ( test ) it with aid of a bright flashlight to see if you can see a very faint image of the WIN-desktop being displayed on the now "black" LCD panel. Every owner of "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp back-lit lcd monitors should know the "flashlight test" and understand what the results of this very basic test mean. Do some reading in my old (louie12fix) profile to learn how to do test. Hint: The very first thing I would investigate inside the unit would be the unit's "switch-mode-AC to DC-power-supply/ccfl electronic ballast circuit for the top two causes of power supply going into "partial or full" shutdown mode, trying to SAVE itself from a nonrecoverable catastrophic failure. e.g. sparks,smoke, fire!! 12fixlouie
