You have a very tough problem. You need to remove the outside metal to get to the motherboard. Look carefully to see if a card has lifted out of the board connector. See if the fan on the CPU is plugged in and running. If not, your CPU is probably fried. If it looks good, try removing the RAM chips and boot up to see if you get a beep code. This is good if you do. Put the chips back in order and take out an external video card. See if you get beeps ( you may not have this card, it may be built in) See if a lot of dust has collected everywhere and clean it up. try tightening up whatever you can and try booting again with your finger holding down a keyboard key. This should cause an error and a beep code. If it does, try booting normal, going into setup with either esc del or F10. If you get to post you have won.

Will m7350n memory chips work in a m7000

A) HP Support > HP Pavilion Media Center m7350n Desktop PC > Main Support page,

Product information > Product specifications > HP Media Center m7350n Desktop PC Product Specifications,



That is DDR2 Sdram at 400MegaHertz. (400MHz)

Has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.120 on each side.
One Locating Notch on the bottom also.

Problem is I find no HP Pavilion m7000, or HP Pavilion m7000n; Desktop PC.

Look on the back of the computer for the white Service Tag.
What is the Product Number?
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

I can tell you that if it's a Pavilion m7060n Desktop PC, it will work,

Same thing if it is a Pavilion m7070n Desktop PC,

Be SURE you FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures, when working on your unplugged from power computer.

Everywhere on the Ram Memory module ('Stick'), EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices or for Windows 7 click start right click on computer select properties in the left pane device manager scroll through all of your devices. If you see a yellow question / exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver software. If you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it. or you might have to download them Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Hope this helps
