Follow my guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! note in the first section ESD. Now place the PC chassis on a table top, can use a cotton towel on the table top. Remove all the cables first. You might need to make a note of where they go. Now remove the Power supply. Then the RAM and graphics card. You should notice that there are screws holding your mainboard in place, remove them using a phillips screw driver. Now remove the CPU cooler and then using the CPU socket arm, remove the processor, be care full not to touch the pins or bend them. To install in the new mainboard the exact opposite.

Presto!!!!
Your done.
All the best

Can u use an ide hard drive on a HP Pavilion Media Center a1510n Desktop PC


First you should check your motherboard. If there is IDE connector (maybe there is connected your CD/DVD-ROM) and free position on the cable(maser or slave) you can attach your HDD (check the jumper position. Maybe there are on the label of your HDD). The other solution is to buy a SATA TO IDE cable.

When i try to start system it will no boot up. amber hd light stays on. i opened up hd and replaced board. mother board fairly new. replaced it with rebuilt one. what should i try next?


1) Why was the motherboard replaced?

2) If this is in reference to an HP Pavilion Media Center M1070n, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 Model 520 (2.8GHz) processor.

Did you make sure you plugged the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, into the motherboard?
This is power for a Pentium 4 processor, and on up.

This is HP Support, and the Motherboard Specifications page, for the HP Pavilion Media Center M1070N,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00208497&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=426501

Scrolling down the page is an illustration, and a photo of the motherboard.

Below the Processor socket is the Northbridge chip.
(The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip are the motherboard chipset)

Intel i915P MCH

In the motherboard photo, and installed in your computer, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum heatsink sitting on top of it. (Has fins on top of the heatsink)

Going across to the Left, from the top left corner of the heatsink, is a square connector with 4 socket holes.
The female connector on the motherboard, for the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.

4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Two Yellow 12 Volt wires, two Black Ground wires.
Let's start with this, and go from there.

To my HP Pavilion Media Center A1430N, I lost ALL video signal


Hi:
One quick thing to check is to see if your Video card is fully seated down in the motherboard? Sometimes they can pop up a bit, and you lose your output.
If that doesnt help, you could remove your memory, one stick at a time, to see if that helps. This could be the cause if you added memory from the old computer.

DVDRRW recognizes CDs, not DVDs.


What PC ,
HP Pavilion Media Center TV m8100n Desktop PC
what OS, we cant guess, OS, ever. say it. please.
then we can talk. it came new with XP/VISTA/W7
which one is yours? (then and now, did you upgrade to w10 for free? we cant guess that either,)


"regardless of type (DVD )" does that mean , using program manager
explorer, (my PC, my computer,app) cant see files on a real
store bought DVD? or cant read any windows disks, real install DVD? from HP or MS?
or cant read DVD-r , Only, ? be more clear on media, even give a real example .
like my computer app runs and sees it but media player don't.

ill guess XP and real DVDs can not be seen by ANY means.

if running XP , why? XP is not only a Virus magnet ask (UK hospitals that fun....)but also , has no support or is buggy on many DVD drives made. and also many USB ports and devices can be dead on XP, XP sux really... and vista close 2nd
If not on W7, upgrade it now, and win. really.

if not already.
never post lacking OS or the post will go NOWHERE fast.

there are patches for XP, for 16 long years, endless.
HP has none
MS has none, (ok 1)
you just dig them up from the toxic internet of viruses..
the toxic soup.
got SP3 from XP that is mandatory in all cases, and the reg patch for DVDs. yes, there is one.
as is the one and only, 3 month old MS patch to stop
the RANSOMEWare. attacks.

what OS what OS what OS?
