I have an HP Pavillion desktop which was working fine. The next day I pushed the on button and there was no response. Since the computer is several years old, but lightly used, is it worth having someone look at it to repair it or should I just get a new one?

Re: My computer does not turn on.
You can do consulting the repairman in your area. Also You can test it by your own.
You can try testing the power supply first by removing from the casing ..to test the power supply. You will connect the green line to any of the black line , since the collor of all the cables are yellow,red, black. and there is only one green cable which is directly connected to the motherboard. You should remove the connection to the motherbaord and test.
I guess the power supply got fault. or u can replace it dirctly by a new one.
may this help,

To verify there is nothing stuck in your drive, turn off your computer and try manually pushing the tray in GENTLY and feel if there is something blocking the tray moving. If there is nothing preventing the tray from moving manually push the tray in - start your computer and try it again. Use the eject function in windows explorer and try the retract button again. If teh button will not work try pushing the tray in manually again. Once the tray starts moving in it should automatically retract the rest of the way. If the unit will not retract on it's own by either method then the drive should be replaced.

If you grab a hold of the lower face of the PC and pull it off you will be able to see if anything is jamming the button or if the button is broken if so just use the small grey button behind the Bigger button on the face to turn the PC on..
If that makes no sense i apologise hard to explain
