Question about Dell Hp Pavilion Slimline Computer s3710t - Intel Core 2 Duo processor E7400 2.8GHz , 4GB DDR2 Sdram, 250... PC Desktop

1 Answer

Sometimes I hit the power button on my s3710t and it won't turn on. What should happen when it comes on properly is that the power button should turn blue that indicates the unit is turning on. Rather what happens is the power button turns yellow for just a fraction of a second and then turns completely off again (like its going into sleep mode, but doesn't). I then have to unplug the power cord from the back until the little green light goes off and then plug it back in. After 3 or 4 tries it finally comes on. I've checked and the power button connection is fine, so it must be something other than that. Its a very annoying problem. When I sent it in to HP support and obviously they couldn't reproduce the problem because it still happens 2-3 times a week.

These are usually symptoms that lead to your power supply. I would say that your power supply is on its way out the door. If this unit is under warranty, call Dell.

Hope this helps.

    Sorry I meant Hp & NOT Dell. Have you tried a different plug? Sometimes it also happens with computers with alot of items plugged into the USB ports as well, because the power supply is too weak to support this many devices on boot up.

First, check for properly connected cables. Disconnect and then re-connect to ensure quality signal path. Use a known-good cable to test. If no joy, turn off computer and remove video card, then re-install it. Sometimes, after long periods, the contacts on the card can become oxidized and have intermittent contact. This will also give you the chance to check for large amounts of dust settling on the components--dust, combined with humidity in the air, can play havoc on computer cards. If still no joy, then the processor board in the monitor might well be defective. Power, signal/resolution decoding is all handled by IC chips. I like to start simple and move to more complicated(i.e. expensive) problems.How old is the monitor? If under warranty, replace it. If not, a repair facility or replacement is your next move.---Rick

Philips 42PF9956/37 Plasma TV - Looking for y sustain board


it isnt the Y-SUS board, it is the Power supply, iv fixed this exact problem twice in the last month, try turning the tv on, and when it turns green, unplug it real fast, while light is still green, after 15 seconds plug it back in, then hit the power button, if it dont come on, hit the power button again, this time, as soon as it turns off, hit the power button again to turn back on, sometimes you can trick the tv and it will turn on, at least i was able to do it, and once it comes on, it should work fine, untill you turn it off again.
