SOURCE: fuse

Hi,

I doubt if you have a blown/bad fuse since you still get the green light flashing meaning there is power coming into the board from the power supply.

Since your only action was to replace the hard drive and the unit was working (with HD problem) before, it could only possibly be a component not properly connected/seated. Start with your memory and video card (if you've got one) and check if they are installed into their appropriate slots. You can also try removing them and cleaning the gold pins/connectors with a pencil erase. Other than that you may want to do a double check of all your wirings or anything out of the ordinary. Do an R & R, remove & reinstall of all your cards, connectors. Additionally, pls confirm that your CMOS/BIOS CLR jumper is in the default position and not Reset.

Any beeping sound or error indicators?

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

When I turn the power on it starts up but just shuts down ten seconds later and keeps starting up and shutting down over and over again


This may be a hard drive issue, remove the hard drive and power up the computer it should show the HP logo and go to black screen with a blinking cursor, turn off and re-seat the hardware back in place and restart the laptop, any change? if the same, reload the recovery disc if available this will prove if it's a software issue or hard disc problem. If there is no improvement the hard drive should be pulled and tested at a computer shop before buying a replacement.

I have a Compaq V6000 laptop. When I try and start it up the fan starts, the disc drive makes a couple of the usal start up noises. About 15 seconds later it just stops and all lights go out. Can Anyone...


With an extensive use of the notebook,
some times notebook would store some static charges which
indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging
the battery. The procedure to remove this static charges from
the notebook is known as power drain. Performing a power
drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete
any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these
steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

I have a HP Pavillion Entertainment PC that will not start up. Two new motherboards have been placed in it and it will still not boot up. It starts up and then just shuts down.


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.

When i started to power on my laptop, i heard its hard disk or i dont know what that thing was making a noise, its just like a machine inside,. This is not like before,. Maybe you can help me to find out...


Most likely the DVD burner or the hard drive open and close the drive and turn off and on then let me know if it makes the same noise. If you put a disk in it the next time for the second test to see if it is still making noise. If it does then it may be the DVD burner.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop won't turn on


Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hello, My HP Compaq 6720s is turned off and won?t start again, when I connect the charger it's turning on and of all the time until I disconnect the charger. When I try to turn on from the battery its jus...


When you say turning on and off all the time until I disconnect the charger, IS the charger running the machine and then after so long cutting out? you leave it and it works , if so its overheating

Machine will need fan and all ducts cleaning and most likely replace arctic silver on psu

IF on the other hand its not running more likely the charger is not powering the machine or charging battery in which case you will need new charger

hope this helps get back to me if you need more help

Dell Latitude C510/610 wont turn on


I have more of a suspicion of the CPU fan than the hard drive, right now. If a hard drive goes bad, the system will wake up, go through it's POST (Power On Self Test), and then tell you there's an issue with the hard drive. If the CPU fan goes bad, the system turns on, sees an RPM of 0 on the fan, then turns back off. That hypothesis also fits in with the slowness you were seeing. If a CPU starts to overheat (because the fan isn't running well), it will start to throttle the clock speed down in an attempt to produce less heat.
Unfortunately, it sounds like your laptop may be in need of a professional repair facility.
