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.

Thanking you

Try a different power connector, if that doesn't work then it's time for a new cd-rom drive.

I have an HP pavilion 533w ,old computer,wouldn't work, but i took out this memory card (512mb-ddr pc333) it started working.Now the computer runs slow,how do I reinstall memory card so that everything...

You can go ahead and do that but if the computer stops working again it means the memory is bad. You need to purcahse another memorycard for the better computer performance.

Or if you still have computer warranty call the manufacturer and ask them to replace your memory card.

Case fan for pavilion 533w

well the fan sizes usually go like this.

If 80mm is too small then its got to be 92mm or 120mm but 120mm are usually reserved for the more expensive pcs and\or servers.

My hypothesis is that its 92mm has extremly cheap fans try them first.

Hope this helps
