Question about HP Pavilion a1410n (ER890AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I recently placed my computer into storage. When I took it out and set it up, the CPU seemed to be running but there was nothing on the monitor and the keyboard didn't seem to be functioning. The mouse seemed connected but without anything on the monitor, it was hard to tell. I hooked my laptop to the monitor and it worked. I checked the cables and they seemed fine. There is a small yellow light on the front of the “tower” below the start button that lite up. (Never noticed it before) and there was a long "beep" that repeated several times. But nothing that I could see on the monitor.

    Was one long beep over and over or one long 3 short. Those beeps are usually the indication of the problem

    Follow the advice above this post. thats what you need to do. the one long beep is a ram error code. Ive seen static buildup on systems that have sat. Reseating the ram and sometimes the processor should take care of that.

Cpu on but no video no beeps


There is likely a hardware-error.
1) Did you connect all powerconnectors correctly to the motherboard ?
2) Same question for attached internal hardware ?
3) Memory modules inserted correctly ?

If all OK, it's seems you PC is correctly booting and running succesfully an operting system like Windows.
Now, the error might occur something between monitor and PC.

4) Did you recently change the screensettings under Windows ?
If your monitor can run max. 1024x768-mode, but you accidentally fiddled with Windows-settings, to set it into 1200x900-mode, your monitor will turn black, not showing anything of Windows. In panic you might have turned of your computer. To solve this, it's best to push the F5-key when booting in Windows safe-mode. Here you can restore the older screen-setting.

5) No damage at pins of connectors between monitor and PC ?
6) Cable between monitor and PC connected correctly ?

If all OK :
7) Does monitor power on ?
Yes. Shortly but turns off within seconds (for TFT-monitors)
- Something at inverter-level is damaged. This is inside the monitor.
No. monitorLED is not even turning on
- Monitor has an internal defect

My emachine desktop tower will not power on


the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you

I have a Dell monitor that was donated to our church and all that comes on the screen is a white. the power is on but there is nothing but white light


Please check that when u power on ur computer then the Num Lock Key of Key Board is on or off.

1- If num lock key is on & monitor is displaying white screen then the problem is with ur monitor. For that u check the VGA cable going from monitor to back side of ur CPU & also set the brightness & contrast from ur monitor menu Setting.


2- If num lock key is off then the problem is with the RAM (Random Access Memory) which is placed inside the CPU. For that you have open the CPU, detach the RAM & clean the dust from that & then attach that at the same place.


Some times the Display problem is also comes across due to moisture, & for that you have place ur monitor in the sun light.


Hope after following these steps your monitor Display Problem will be get solved. If still you face the same problem then please let me know.

Presario SR1810NX

what monitor.? name and model... vast exist... no all work.
test the monitor first on known good PC that is 1st 1st.
does the Monitor (its button) OSD screens work,, if not monitor is toasted (good power in) if monitor is 2001 relic, some have hidden inside, power saver clock (turn it off , using OSD screens)

no it's not your bios, like the www, myth loves to repeat, ad nausum
here is the correct mess order.
But BIOS screens are the 1st GOAL always,,,, your not there yet.

1: test the monitor first, on other PCs when sure its good move it to
the Presario SR1810NX (and a good known monitor)
2: turn the Presario SR1810NX , on, then see if all fans run
that means SKINS off, omg, the fans are packed in lint , omg2, the CPU fins on its heat sink are packed, bad. (a yearly event)
A CPU can overheat fast, if not able to stay cool.....
CPUs go slower or even halt if the they see massive heat rise.
(built in self preservation mode)

all fans must run and flow air, as the designer wanted. for sure.
then make sure the fan in the PSU runs, if yes, good. if not you lost 12vdc to the fan, bad PSU.

PC sounds to be working, yes?? what do you hear now? a key fact?
3:
push the CD/DVD eject button if it can not eject the PSU is dead.
there are more steps. lots more.
Even the HP service manual tells you how to test the PSU, read that?

Monitor flashes then goes blank


As i told somebody in another post, try to find a driver for this monitor. If it came with a disk try to get it from there otherwise the internet is a easy place to find this. What could've happened is when you installed servicepack 3, which is known for causing many problems, it may have deleted the driver that supported this monitor, even if the driver may have come already on the computer. This is only one of many solutions of which you can try. Hope it helps :)

Monitor will not turn on after booting computer


if you have onboard video try a video card that fits in PCI or AGP slot or try a different video card in place of the one you use
with everything else seeming to be correct this seems like the only thing you have not done

Monitor on but not working properly


If you just built the computer..the motherboard will give you a warning that some hardware has changed. you have to connect your keyboard and go into the bios and make sure everything is right. To be safe select set to default factory settings , save and reboot the computer. This is to prevent the settings for a previous cpu be used for the new one.

Help!


Have you installed RAM? If not the machine will not boot. You may also need to enter the BIOS setup to set the CPU and DRAM voltages and multiplyers etc. Follow the instructions in the manual for setting up the CPU info in the BIOS. Are you sure your PSU has enough guts to run the setup? Many times have i seen setups fail because a cheap power supply has been overstretched.

Monitor won't come on


When you say the pc is working fine, it's hard to tell if there is no visual from the monitor. Are you getting the 2 usual spaced beeps when your pc boots up, is your keyboard ps2(normal pin type plug or USB)check you have keyboard and mouse in their correct connectors (mouse-green plug, keyboard-purple plug) I'ts more than likely had a bit of banging about in storage and especially if it's been in a cool area, then placed in your house, there may well be condensation points inside which may take a few days to dry out. Try your monitor in a friends pc to eliminate that first.
