Check the red/amber/green lights on the back of the computer, then go to support.dell.com and it should tell you what those lights mean, why it's failing. Or at least narrow it down.

No power to my desktop computer HP A1330N and no green light in the back of the power supply


You replaced power supply and your made sure you plugged everything back into the motherboard snuggly and in it's proper place? If so it might be your motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have the new power supply turned on. Sometimes there's a O/I switch on the back of the power supply. Flip it and try to boot and see what happens. You might have another bad power supply.
If so your motherboard might be burning them out.

Try removing the power cord for 30 seconds and press and hold the power button. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in and press the power button to see what happens.

Do your fans work when you press the power button? Do you hear any fans running?

Power On, Fans start but stop in few seconds and that's all


May be there is a problem in the windows, but suppose it is not booting at all.

First Check once more your boot options from bios menu
Second If it still the same thing, extract your battery out of your laptop for 12 min, then try to power up your laptop pluging in your power cable(don't use your battery)
Third If it still not working, there must be a problem in your cooling fan, so check it, also check your motherboard & your graphics card (Most of this problems happens due to a problem in the computer cooling system in motherboard & graphics card)

Hope it works for you Christos

Computer does not boot


If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.

My hp laptop will not boot up


Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard

BIOSTAR K8M800 Micro AM2 wont boot


It's suppose to do that. These motherboards are new generation. After everything is ready to go, you plug the power cord to the wall and pc. The computer power supply fan spins for about 3 seconds or so and maybe a few lights blink. This is normal. Its kind of a self diagnostic telling itself (I'm ok, you can power me on now). Did I answer your guestion? If not, let me know.
