Question about HP Computers & Internet
I gotta know 1st what is ur system
configuration..is all ur system is getting power on..is there any sound coming out of the system..
assuming that the bios has not been flashed in a wrong way & u r a professional..
before u proceed to complex checkups..check the mains power supply- the fuse/switch/wirings/power cords/other associate circuits..
probably itz either minor case of loose ram/improper ground/cmos battery..
or major case of faulty or defective smps/cpu/main board short/display adapter or card/monitor
..plz do check the following as in order:..
1) in power on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..
2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..
3) see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..
4) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..
5) remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistace n many more..resulting an increase in heat..
6) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market) between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..
7) the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v (yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg & grey~sb); -12v (blue); -5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..
the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic', or pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective protector-transformer/resistance(esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
8) if itz not the smps, then it must b ur main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(esp above 1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)....
always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....
