HP Pavillion a1514n Won't Turn On


Yes even with the green light on it could still be the power supply. Have you pulled the power, opened the case, and pulled the BOIS battery? Could be the BOIS needs to be reset. You might also pull all the memory chips, turn it on and see if you get a beep code. I have had that happen in the past. Then I would replace the power supply (if you have an old one laying around use it to test, with just the MOBO plugged in). If the power supply fails, that leaves only the mother board as the issue.

Good luck, I hope one of these suggestions works for you.

Blew a breaker and now my computor won.t turn on


Try this, unplug the computer, hold in the power button for 30 seconds or so (this will discharge the capasitors). Now plug the computer back in and try to turn it on. If you still get nothing, try a different surge suppessor. If you still get nothing, try a different outlet. If all of this fails, you most likely have a bad power supply. You will have to open the computer, uplug the power supply from the motherboard, hard drives, DVD drives, ect. Play close attention to what plug goes were. Remove the screws holding the power supply in, and remove it from the computer. You can take this old power supply to about any computer store and find a replacement. Put in the new power supply, plug everything back in. Hopefully the computer will now boot up and run. If not you could have a bad motherboard.

I hope this helps

My computer went blank when turning it on


1) Computer isn't working, due to the Processor isn't working, due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power perhaps to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer Power Supply's are rated in Wattage.
Volts times Amperes = Watts.
(Average computer power supply in a fairly new computer, is rated at around 300 Watts)

A) ALL of the LED lights combined, use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor may use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can have enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

Solution?
Test the voltages of the Power Supply,

Or, use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, that has the correct amount of power cables, the right kind of power cables, the correct size, and shape of the case, and enough Wattage, for a test unit..

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure.

Monitor problem


The power light is flashing green can indicate start/restart of the power supply due to shorts circuits or failing power supply due to bad caps, look for bad caps with bulging top first, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Deep freeze computer inresponsive


it sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.

that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.

make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died

Unable to reboot


Sounds to me like you have a bad or dying power supply. Try finding a friend with a working power supply and hook it up to your computer, if the problem ceases, then go get yourself a new power supply. If the problem persists, it may be an issue with cables or the fuse, maybe even a bad motherboard.

No power


Had the same problem after the electric went out due to a storm. When the electric came back on the computer wouldn't turn on. There was a light flashing on the Power Supply and on the mother board. I disconnected the large white Power connector from the motherboard, waited 15 seconds and plugged the connector back in, the light came on solid, press the on/off switch and the computer booted up and continued to work fine.
