Question about HP Computers & Internet
PLEASE READ TO END BEFORE TRYING!!!
Did you try the simple fix? First thing is to unplug the computer and then push the power button. Plug the computer back in and then hit the power button again. Did it start? Hopefully. If not and its a desktop, take the side cover off and look at the mainboard. Are the capacitors all flat on top? If any of the capacitors are bulging on top your mainboard is probably going to need to be replace. If not, pull the power connector off of the mainboard. Now take a technicians secret tool (paper clip) and bend it around in a loop and connect the green and one black wire from that connector. This will automatically turn the power supply on if its not defective. This is the simplest of tests for the power supply and will not tell you if you are getting the correct voltages but it will at least let you know if it works at all. Sometimes the fan will come on but the fan will turn slower than usual. This indicates a bad power supply as well. If the power supply is not the problem, plug the power supply back in and unplug all the drives from the mainboard. Now try to power up the computer. If it still doesnt start, remove your RAM and try to power up. If that doesnt work remove all the plug in cards. Try to power up again. If that doesnt work then its probably the Mainboard or CPU.
Hope this helps. If it does please rate it. Thanks...
