Question about HP Pavilion a805n (PS519AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

No power HP Pavillion A805NI was using my internet when the computer froze. I was not able to turn it off with the on and off switch and in the end I had to turn it off thru the power strip. I waited a few seconds before I turned it back on, but nothing happened. It wouldn't turn on at all. I tried a different outlet, made sure that all the cables were in place, but to no avail. The computer won't turn on. The power supply has a green light that is blinking when the power is turned on, but that is about all.

HP Pavillion a1514n Won't Turn On

Yes even with the green light on it could still be the power supply. Have you pulled the power, opened the case, and pulled the BOIS battery? Could be the BOIS needs to be reset. You might also pull all the memory chips, turn it on and see if you get a beep code. I have had that happen in the past. Then I would replace the power supply (if you have an old one laying around use it to test, with just the MOBO plugged in). If the power supply fails, that leaves only the mother board as the issue.

Good luck, I hope one of these suggestions works for you.

Hp pavillion power problem

Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure:
CAUTION: This product contains components that are easily damaged by ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC.
1. Disconnect all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
2. With the power cord disconnected , press the power button on the front of the computer for five seconds.
Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
NOTE: If the power supply fan makes an inconsistent grinding sound or stops and starts erratically, replace the power supply.
3. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position. Wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America.
Performing this step ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region.
4. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet and test to see if the computer can turn on.

If it beeps in a pattern (example 2 long 3 short) then I would need to know the pattern. With that pattern I could try to determine when the faulty component is.
