Question about HP Pavilion A730N (PJ510AA) PC Desktop

Power doesn't turn on

I have a hp pavilion a730n, had a blackout yesterday and when everything turned back on, the computer still refused to work.
The green light in the back is still flashing (fairly rapidly), but when I push the button in the front, the computer still doesn't turn on.
Any suggestions?

NO! Do not buy a new motherboard or pc without checking some things.

First, is the green light you say is blinking on the Power Supply itself?

If it is, then the power supply is dead. A blinking light on a PSU means that it can no longer hold a charge and needs to be replaced. Get a new one and pop it in.

I suggest that your power supply and/or motherboard were wiped out by the power on the way back up(that's usually what kills them)..

next time, you might consider a UPS instead of a power surge strip..

    sure you can..you just have to get a new motherboard and power supply and cross your fingers that you only lost those two components, and not the memory and uP as well.

My a730n computer will not turn on. The green light flashes in the back. Local frys tested power supply and said it was working. Fans dont come on...nothing?


it could be a mother board problem or Power supply issue. Even if the power supply works it wont supply required voltage to some components.Its better you get a new power supply and test it.Still its not working it could be a mother board issue.There will be a chance for power button issue also.

My hp f1703 monitor just turns off on it's own.


Common failure in this monitor is the poor soldering works on the doughnut (4) shape inductors in the inverter board, http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/

It is not turning on, the green back ligth is blinking


You probably need a new power supply. Check the capacitors inside the power supply, they're probably popped. If they're not popped, bring it to a computer repair shop and have them test it. Your board could be bad, too.

You might want to check the CPU fan for dust and re-seat the RAM. I sounds more like a heat issue.

Power Supply


is there a problem you are encountering? does your pc shutting down? what is your present power supply wattage? if that is 300watts then you can change even 450watts.
