Though it had been working fine until two days ago, my HP z800 won't boot past the "Starting Windows" animation; it simply turns off during its usual lengthy but verbose boot.

a HP z800 Desk top., full sized too.
what options? what does it have inside, now. ok 1 VGA card now. but is there a CD/DVD or BR disk drive there? options?
running SSD ! good.
its sold with a wide range for RAID drives, options.
and dual Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series.

7 huge drive bays,
ever think to boot to a Linux CD? LIVE (no HDD need be there)
or windows 7,8,10 LIVE PE windows disk. (no HDD need be there)

my guess is if that fails (above simple test), then the PSU is bad.
it turns off for only these reasons.
1: the OS told it to.
2: the PSU saw errors and turned it self off.
the cause list is huge. (even bad MOBO, bad ram, or anything plugged into that MOBO that is shorted.

The PSU if it sees faults on any of its many power bus lines
it shuts off as after 1full second of trying to get it right (ATX spec)

why not just strip it down to only
mobo,PSU, no vga? , 1 mem stick.
see if fans run, powered on and it holds, there.
have as little plugged in to MOBO is possble
see if you get beep codes or , plug in 1 USB keyboard
and see if the LED there have flash codes.

ever seen a live boot CD? or stick
today all techs, have a boot stick, i have 4,
that why we can test everything out, with no HDD present.
see the POWER OF THAT?

I take a LIVE PE or linux, ISO file and burn a USB stick with RuFUS.
then boot to it, keep it in the tool box. and be empowered.

The PSU when working, some dont shuts off for 2 reasons
Power bus overloads, over/under voltage tests, or the soft power off
bit is TRIPPED.
if no HDD present there will no soft power off , possible. dig?
you push the power button and the PSU must stay up
do the fans go off too, ? you never mentioned FANS.
mine has 4 fans,
if the fans good off, now HDD then the PSU is bad or just UNHAPPY.

unhappy means, OVELOADED.

The more fancy the PSU, the more possible ways to overload
they do that to keep from blowing to kingdom come, $500 set of
processors. (a good thing)?

one more hint, the PSU has this one wire.
called PWR-OK if the PWR-oK goes false, the PSU
shuts off.
learn how this works and all else is easy.

Sir i am getting problem in booting from usb dvd ram because my installed combo drive is not working ,so how can i boot from usb dvd ram and laptop cmp is "amilo pro fujtshi siemens"

You have to go in BIOS and choose in menu to boot from USB device (USB HDD, USB FLOPPY, USB CD-ROM and other in menu). To go in BIOS you press DEL or F2 or another button who writes on the first screen after you turn on the laptop. Good luck.

Hdd power problem


Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:
If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Power loss after 2 seconds from booting up.

Best solution I can think of is Step by Step

Remove those items again and Step by Step, 1 by 1 install each item.

If each item installs ok one by one, then leave in one item at a time. Slow process yes, but you might find which item is causing the conflict.

If you install smething an the machine fails Remove it and the Item before it, then install the Item that failed and try it again.

If it fails then it could be the item not the PSU.

If it fails because of all the items... Then you may need to upgrade your PSU

HP DV928US When battery in or charger plugged in

fails battery out so leave it out they love to short.
so when it fails test 2 is, hit the F10 or ESC key promptee
went it fails to boot, check BIOS key first, if BIOS fails.
be more clear.
what does it do when it wont turn on.
BIOS dead. screen 100% dead, and not even text
BIOS works even with HDD and DVD drive pulled.
that is the acid test on PCs.
the screen must say, hit F10? or ESC to enter setup, means HP BIOS. it must or power is no good. get a new power pack
the shut down tell me lost power, that can be the power pack 19vdc
or the jack at the mobo if failing to said pack.
try side pressure on that jack if at anytime the power button fails.

it self shuts down, I got that but lets fix , cant boot first.
that is how to fix this.
power on failures, are you saying the power key fails. some times
and the fan does not run every time.?
this old LT uses CCFL back lamps.
that love to fail. so when it shut down did the fan die.
did the HDD stop spinning ear to bottom? if not the CCFL is failing.
using and external monitor proves this every time,
do the flash light trick?

When I turn it on, only the fans run. I cannot hear the hard drive run and the hard drive light on the bezel is solid yellow

look on bios to see if detects the hard drive ...if does not boot to windows...the hard disk has no reason to go on ....and the issues could be many ....check the Ram memory if do not appear anything on screen at all ...and just runs the coolers and clicks without boot at this case its the Ram memory check it ...get it out ..put it back ...and remove the bios battery to force it see them again .....if it is booting until the operating system should appear ...and after that nothing ...reinstall ...
Also .....if there is anything written on the screen carefully ..usually it will say whats wrong ...and advise in same replace hdd ...or files missing ...or blue screen error from memory issues..

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)

If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.
