No - there is no fuse.
It is possible that your power supply is not working anymore - that happens sometimes. This is how I would test it:

  1. Unplug the power cable
  2. Open the computer housing (look into your manual how to do that. If you don't have a manual, look at the description here.)
  3. Plug the power chord back in.
  4. Do not touch anything inside of the computer!
  5. If you press the power button, the fan of your power supply should start spinning. If it doesn't, then the power supply is dead.
  6. If your power supply is ok, then the cause is somewhere else (motherboard, harddrive.) Try to listen if the harddrive is spinning (good) or making clicking noises (bad).
  7. Unplug the power and replace the cover.
Let me know what you found out.
I'm happy to help.

Latest bios for HP Media Center PC?


sad how, how fixya AI guessing wrong??? pathetic, mess....
wow a very old media center, gen 2 of 14 or so.
HP does not support this quote
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC,its RETIRED now
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products


The BIOS does not do that!
what HP, it has full name and model.
the MMC controls this, and is very strict. (mem-managment controller)
the memory you are buying is no good. for YOUR PC.
this is so very common
and worse every year,
ever heard of Crucial or Kingston memory
they can fit up memory for you, it very complex.
not just DMM1, 2,3, but speed, min.
density rules.
chip count rules
chip voltage, 1.3. 1.5 or both or?
Total memory max allowed and PER SOCKET !
and even number of chips per side of stick , rule.
that worst was intel i5 old processors.
those are facts, and only the exact motherboard you have a
and what processor is there, (and if mmc is external to processor that)
matter.
? this?
M1070n

finding data on such and old box.
is not easy but google can dig up bits.
why not ask Kingston? for help,.

key facts are, (besides old)
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC
Intel Pentium 4 520 / 2.8 GHz
Intel 915P Express (my guess, mmc is inside here)
oops
  • 512 MB / 4 GB (max)
  • Memory Speed 400 MHz
  • Memory Specification Compliance
    PC3200
  • Features
    unbuffered
  • Configuration Features
    2 x 256 MB
  • Technology
    DDR SDRAM
  • Installed Size
    512 MB
  • Data Integrity Check
    non-ECC
  • 4 GB
  • Form Factor
    DIMM 184-pin
looks like 1GB max per slot , 1 to 4.
good luck finding SDRAM in 2017 that works.

why not find a newer box? (pc) say 2010 or newer.,
they will run better and can buy ram easy
vastly better.... even Goodwill has them for few bucks
or this.

When i try to start system it will no boot up. amber hd light stays on. i opened up hd and replaced board. mother board fairly new. replaced it with rebuilt one. what should i try next?


1) Why was the motherboard replaced?

2) If this is in reference to an HP Pavilion Media Center M1070n, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 Model 520 (2.8GHz) processor.

Did you make sure you plugged the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?
This is power for a Pentium 4 processor, and on up.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the HP Pavilion Media Center M1070N,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00208497&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=426501

Scrolling down the page is an illustration, and a photo of the motherboard.

Below the Processor socket is the Northbridge chip.
(The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip are the motherboard chipset)

Intel i915P MCH

In the motherboard photo, and installed in your computer, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum heatsink sitting on top of it. (Has fins on top of the heatsink)

Going across to the Left, from the top left corner of the heatsink, is a square connector with 4 socket holes.
The female connector on the motherboard, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Two Yellow 12 Volt wires, two Black Ground wires.
Let's start with this, and go from there.

System recovery for HP Media Center m1070n


Hitting F10 is for creating the disks. To rebuild it, place the first recovery disk in the DVD player and reboot the machine. If the disk does not boot:
1. To check the drive, place another DVD in the drive and see if you get a response. 2. The boot disk check can be tested by placing the disk in your other machine. Good Luck. circe@PCTechsOnline.com
