    The actual plastic Power On button, or the little power on switch that is behind that button? Before you remove the Front Panel to access, and remove the Power On button, and the switch, make yourself some notes, and a little drawing, as to where on the motherboard those wires go. They connect to pins that stick up out of the Front Panel header, on the motherboard. (Connection on a motherboard is referred to as a header. The plastic part of your computer in the front is a Front Panel) A digital camera plus good lighting could come in handy. Here's that switch,http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

My hp pavillion a420n keeps shuting off and turning itself on every once and a while. Also othe flash keeps crashing and programs keep failing. Any clue what it may be telling me?????


Hardware failure - the voltage to the processor is unstable because either the PSU or the rectifiers on the motherboard have aged. Open the case and look at the motherboard - if some of the capacitors on it are bloated then you will have either to replace them or the entire board. If the capacitors are fine in there then the fault is in the PSU - you can get a new one for less than $20 at every pc shop.

My HP a420n won't start after replacing cd-rw drive


Please try to remove all the connections from your computer and also connections inside the motherboard, the power cord for your hard drives and also the power cord from the power supply to your motherboard.After that, remove the memory and clean the pin by using an eraser of the pencil. And then insert again the memory stick and connect all the connections from the power supply to motherboard and everything. Lastly reset your bios and put it back to normal again. Hope this would help. Thanks..
