Power supply port? What is that? What battery are you talking about. What model and type of computer is this? If this is a laptop you will have to do the following. You have not really made your question clear. I will try to read your mind.

Sounds like your power plug has come desoldered. This is internal and will have to be taken apart to repair. If you are comfortable with taking it apart you can repair it yourself. If you have not ever soldered anything before or taken a laptop apart before you need to have someone else do it.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need the instruction manual to locate all of the screws. You will need a soldering iron and a camera along with a pencil and paper to draw a diagram and take notes. Laptops have a lot of fragile parts in them that will break. Do not do this if you do not know how. This is something that a qualified tech should do. You will see the plug and you will need to re-solder it back onto the board. One wrong move and you could damage the entire computer. If you try to do this yourself you are on your own and I am not responsible nor is anyone else.

Most of them have a break down on how to take it apart. The best thing that I can tell you is below. The only thing to do if you do not have the manual is to find a screw and take them out one by one. There should be a way to pop off the top part above the motherboard. You pry on both sides and it should pop up to get under it. The keyboard should pop up from the bottom. All laptops are not the same. Just be very careful, but if you are not sure that you can do it leave it alone. I could do it because I have done it before. Step by step directions without being there is very hard to do.

No power to my desktop computer HP A1330N and no green light in the back of the power supply


You replaced power supply and your made sure you plugged everything back into the motherboard snuggly and in it's proper place? If so it might be your motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have the new power supply turned on. Sometimes there's a O/I switch on the back of the power supply. Flip it and try to boot and see what happens. You might have another bad power supply.
If so your motherboard might be burning them out.

Try removing the power cord for 30 seconds and press and hold the power button. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in and press the power button to see what happens.

Do your fans work when you press the power button? Do you hear any fans running?

My HP a1630n was working fine a few days ago & now it does not even turn on - no fan - no motor, nothing. I tried a different power supply & still nothing. Any clues/suggestions??


Hello,

Try taking out your battery, and then use your power adapter! I just went through this myself.

Your battery may be drained? If your power adapter doesn't work, than you can purchase a universal one, or use the the other you tried. But your battery needs to be out to test this.

My battery was okay, but power adapter was bad...they go bad out of blue for no reason at all! It's fine to use a different power adapter.

Kind regards!

HP pavilion a705W pc desktop/ on back by power plugin, green light is on, push power button to turn on, light goes out and nothing happens. I opened panels and observed light again on back lite green and...


if you have installed a new hardware, that might be the cause. specially if it is a video card. The wattage of your power supply might not be enough to run the computer. try to remove newly installed hardware such as video card. If there is none, you may try to remove the power for the hard drive and the dvd drive and check if it will turn on. Just bood in to bios..

if that works, then it definitely is the power supply. it cant provide sufficient power to your equipment..

hope that works.

regards.

Nothing happens when push start button. power cord etc good ??? is this a power unit failure?


make sure the outlet is recieving power

unplug the tower from the outlet & then replug it in & see what happens

make sure all cords are plugged in correctly in the back of the tower

then if nothing happens after you push the start button, power supply & cord could be bad

After start button is pushed several low buzzes is heard


Better check that power supply & where it plugs in at out. Also,make sure all the connections are plugged in tight inside. Never assume that a replaced part is good & if you went after-market for the power supply, don't go super cheap. Buy a good one with a good warranty & the same if not more juice than the original.

Turn power off and unplug power from computer.
Unplug printers,backup drives and speakers.
Open case and unplug power supply from the board.
plug power cord back in press the power button.
Of course nothing will happen.
unplug power cord again.
plug power supply back into the board.
plug power cord backup and press power switch.
If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.
Good Luck

Monitor not getting info from computer


Does the computer beep when it starts? Does the monitor work on another pc? Possible culprits with these symptoms are the power supply and video card.
