Question about HP Pavilion 533w (P9859AR#ABA) PC Desktop
Your computer is not POSTing often described as a no POST. Power On Self Test. One beep from the onboard speaker represent all is in good working order. However if you hear no beeps then some-thing is wrong, like in your case. Start by removing the side panel of your case. Remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about one minute and the reinstall it in the correct orientation. This will load default settings. Now power on your computer. Does it work! If no then ensure that the fingers of the RAM modules are clean, use tissue paper and ensure that they are correctly installed. Remove the graphics card and reinstall it applying even pressure throughout the card and gently push it into the slot. There may be a little clip ensure it locks into place. If you can it is recommended to use the onboard VGA for your testing. Limit the number of variables by disconnecting all hard drives and DVD drives. Install RAM modules one at a time in alternate slots. Clean the computer of any dust, pay special attention to the CPU cooler as this must be kept cool at all times.
If you turn on your PC and you press the on button and nothing happens then it is most likely then mainboard that is faulty/dead.
A computer shop would know exactly which board to get and they will install it for you, if on the other hand it is under warranty then return it and they will sort it out.
