My hp mini tower will not restart


Your power supply is probably bad. Try plugging in directly to the wall and try it. If you have a meter, you can open it up and turn it on. Check the voltage on one of the unused plugs coming out of the power supply, the box in the back with the a/c receptacle on it. Find a plug with a yellow, 2 black and a red wire. Yellow/Black should be 12v, Red/Black should be 5v. Normally people lose the 12v (get only 8v) so the motherboard comes on but not the HDD.
If your prw supply tests OK remove any cards you have and try turing it on with no cards. If it powers on, add the cards back one at a time until it won't power on and that card is bad. Normally this would be a modem card that connects to a phone line.
If the pwr supply test bad, take some pictures of the inside with your phone and remove the power supply (4 screws on the back) and disconnect all the cables that go to it. Check the label for watt ratings and a part number or take the whole P/S to a computer store where they will be $45. Make sure the one you buy has the same type connectors, same or more watts and screw holes in the same place (ask for help). Or you maybe able to order online using the HP part number ($80) or from eBay. Replace the power supply, plug everything back in and turn on. Really pretty easy.

Add second hard drive


There are three variants for this case: the mini-tower (which you say you don't have), the "Small Form Factor", and the "Ultra-Slim Desktop".

The "Small FOrm Factor" has an internal 3.5" bay that will support a second HDD.

That could be the video chip if have on board video. I don't know if you have an AGP or PCI slot to add a new video card. The Agp is brown color and always is just one. The PCI are white, and you can have 2, 3 or 4. You can buy some cheap video cards on ebay.

Dell optiplex 210l mini-tower video card upgrade


Before upgrading a video card, it's strongly recommended to check the wattage specification of the power supply unit. If the installed power supply unit can cater the need of the newly installed video card then it can be used normally.

You may refer to the user manual of the Computer to check the wattage specification or the Power supply unit(PSU) or directly open the tower to check for the printed value on the PSU itself.
