Sounds like motherboard is not getting correct power. Could be as simple as installing a new power supply ( try tigerdirect.com for supply) or it could be as disheartening as a cracked motherboard. These are tricky problems, does your computer beep at all during startup? If it does find out the manufacturer of your bios, and look up the beep codes for that brand. Every bios has different beep codes that could be trying to tell you something.

Have an HP pavilion G7 wont boot, no power light , replaced mother board, still wont boot. Removed battery plugged in a/c cord still no boot? Help?


G7 what, it has full model number not just G7,
that means near zero. in fact.


what does boot mean? its a long serial process.
sure no windows (no windows stated, XP?)
the power must turn on and first.
hear that fan run? feel it blow? vents clean first.

The G7 Pavilion is both a desktop PC and a Laptop,
silly no, but HP did that, google G7 , SEE?

I guess the BATTERY thing is not the CMOS battery but the huge , Laptop battery. smart act taking it out first. they do short.
but what about sound, and the fan blowing. it must blow
or the Power pack is dead.
i bet the old mother board was ok. and you didnt do the strip down test to prove that.

ever heard of these?
1: CMOS RTC BIOS NVRAM COIN cell, replace it first.
if not the BIOS can not load configs. ever. again. bad bad bad.
2: power pack dead if fan is dead. replace it its only $8
or use a voltmeter is it enters the mobo 19vdc, is ok, less that 18v not.
3: then if the fan is still dead, power dead, BIOS dead.
and external VGA port dead to external monitors, then
we pull modules off the MOBO, up to 6 or more
they all can short and when they do, power goes to ZERO
the regulators do that by DESIGN.
(the no catch fire deal)

sure wish you said (lap or desk top sure did)
after all the Desktop PSU may be bad, if its fan is dead.

My enermax power pack sparked out of the fan in the back and now my computer wont turn on. Not sure if it's the power pack or the board is fried... Any help would be appreciated thanks =)


if it sparked then something inside the power supply malfunctioned and that is the reason it wont work. You will need to replace it. Unlikely that it fried your board in the process. You can test this by swapping the power supply with one that you know works.

HP DV928US When battery in or charger plugged in


fails battery out so leave it out they love to short.
so when it fails test 2 is, hit the F10 or ESC key promptee
went it fails to boot, check BIOS key first, if BIOS fails.
be more clear.
what does it do when it wont turn on.
BIOS dead. screen 100% dead, and not even text
BIOS works even with HDD and DVD drive pulled.
that is the acid test on PCs.
the screen must say, hit F10? or ESC to enter setup, means HP BIOS. it must or power is no good. get a new power pack
the shut down tell me lost power, that can be the power pack 19vdc
or the jack at the mobo if failing to said pack.
try side pressure on that jack if at anytime the power button fails.

it self shuts down, I got that but lets fix , cant boot first.
that is how to fix this.
power on failures, are you saying the power key fails. some times
and the fan does not run every time.?
Also,
this old LT uses CCFL back lamps.
that love to fail. so when it shut down did the fan die.
did the HDD stop spinning ear to bottom? if not the CCFL is failing.
using and external monitor proves this every time,
do the flash light trick?

Compaq presario a900 model a931nr wont boot, help!!!?


Sounds like the battery is in trouble (discharged) or the charger is bad. If you have access to a voltmeter, read the voltage across the power cable plug with the pack plugged into the house outlet socket. Does a lamp work when plugged into the same socket? If the pack checks ok, then the battery may not be able to receive charge. Have it checked by a dealer.

Working fine until psu packed in, replaced psu, begins power up


The PSU dying may have destroyed the motherboard also. Try removing all interface cards and disconnecting all drives to make sure.
