HP Media Center Desktop w/XP

Bought computer a year ago January from Best Buy and everything worked fine. Starting a few months ago, when I turn computer on it just "beeps" and won't connect to Windows. If I turn it off and turn it on again, it connects just fine. I took the computer to Geek Squad but they said despite many trys they never got it to beep so they said I'd have to send it to HP for diagnostic check.

Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?

Power Supply for HP Media Center m1270 PC


Are you sure it's the power supply?

Most modern power supply units are of the ATX type. Brand should not matter. Your PC used a 300 watt power supply when new. You can purchase a power supply with more output (watts) if you like, but not less. You will have to purchase from a computer specialty store most likely - take the dead one in and compare it side by side with the new one before buying.

My two year old HP desktop crashed two weeks ago


Your best option at this point may be to just try to reload the OS from sratch. You will loose all of your data but at least your PC will work again. If you have the original HP OS disk or Windows Media Center disk just put it into your CD/DVD drive and turn your PC on. Then when prompted, press any key to boot of the CD. Follow the on screen prompts to reload.

If you don't have the discs, you may have a recovery partition on your hard drive. Try this website:

Desktop will not load up


The computer should be fine, make sure there is no dust covering the fan or inside the computer. If not you can use the recovery disc that came with the computer, or a Windows XP cd to fix your installation, if that is the problem.

I bought a computer from best buy


Was it an introductory or trial software?

If it wasn't I would definitely make a fuss with Best Buy, I don't see why they wouldn't just pull a new software off the shelf and give it to you especially if you bought a complete system from them. I would do a screen print showing that the software is not working. First, make sure you haven't disabled it, and it is truly not functioning, BUT let them resolve it their own way first.

Hp pavilion m7330n motherboard issue


The system in question requires motherboard model ms-7184 and can be found on ebay for less than $100.  If your repair guy used a different motherboard you will get the issues described and need to reinstall the OS.  It is impracticle to put any more than $200 in most desktop computers more than 2 years old, your repair guy should have advised you of this straight off.  Find a new person to take your equipment.
