Ok, this is a muti step process. 1. Remove the hard drive and push the power button. When the HP screen appears enter the Bios. This is usually done by pressing ESC, Del or F1 when the computer displays the HP screen. If you get into the Bios open and insert a bootable CD/DVD close the drive door and let teh computer continue to boot. If you don't have a disk handy you can get Knoppix, a Linux OS designed to run from DVD/CD, at most used book stores for about $5. If the computer starts your problem is the hard drive. 2. Assuming the computer did not boot. With the hard drive out, remove the RAM and repeat the steps above. 3. If the computer still fails to boot remove the CD/DVD drive and repeat. At this point you can reinstall the hard drive and RAM. Your goal here is to remove items until you locate the one that is causing the problem. Since you have already replaced the motherboard a second time you are pretty sure your main board is good so it must be a different device. The most likely fault is the Hard Drive followed by RAM, CD/DVD drive, MODEM, WiFi and so forth. Once the computer boots with a specific device removed you know that device is at fault and replace it to resolve the issue.

Ok not its time for diagnostics hehe XD

first plug in your laptop and remove the battery and see if that works

if not try your laptop on just the battery (if the laptop is still abel to charge it) and see if it starts

ive ran into this issue before solution: its eather the mother board (youve replaced this several times) or the processor (if this failes the computer will turn on for a second then shut off)

other options you could try is

remove the hard drive and turn it on to see if will show the HP screen (put drive back in and try agane to see if it still failes)

if your computer still failes to start

remove the ram chips from the laptop and turn it on if the lapptop stays on (if you have 2 sticks of ram) replace one stick of ram and see if it will start if not remove the stick of ram you put in and try the other stickin the same slot and try agane (do the same for the second slot) if this solves you issue its a bad stick of ram

if this is to no availe try removing the cd/dvd drive and see if it will start if not try removing the hard drive and cd drive if this dont work put them back in

try removing the wireless card/bluetooth card and try agane

if this dont work keep on trying removing different hardware and see if it works

if doing indavidiual parts dont work remove the wireless, dvd drive, hard drive and try agane

good luck and i hoe this helps you out

Hp pavillion entertainment pc wont power on


HP had lots of issues in the past with faulty power Jack. If you are inclined, you can also removed the motherboard and test the fuses to see if one is blown ( use a multimeter to see if there is one that does not allow power to pass thru). Otherwise you will need a new motherboard. It might also be the power button module that is not working or the cable that goes from your power button to your motherboard is either loose or disconnected. Let's go back to your motherboard if you plug in your laptop and the battery light does not come on even if battery is inserted, then the problem is with the motherboard.
