Question about HP Pavilion a1630n PC Desktop
It's not new, its old, sure new to you.
what monitors does it use, Name and model #
what OS? what operating system run on it?
i guess you bought an old used PC what someone warranteed
they sound brave to me,, doing that,...
a1630n Desktop PC.
HP retired this desktop years ago.
I guess it runs XP OS.? or is it VISTA?
they sent me power supplies, well they sure did not for a destop
so that means it was for the unstated monitor.
Id say , lacking tests, or any photos of screen
that this is what is wrong.
1: bad monitor? (lines is my clue)
2: XP is totally virus infected as all are now, its a virus magnet.
HOw do you fix it, me?
well i test the monitor on an other pc first. if its bad we buy a new one. walmart has them for 36bucks
once the montor works,
that BSOD , is next.
BSOD have many causes,
1: XP loves to BSOD at the drop of a hat, it is XP and that is its forte..
2: bad PSU in the PC, or bad memory in PC.
3: software corruption ,
if lucky the F10 key works on this PC
power on , press F10 and restore XP to HP day 1 , conditions.
XP is not supported by Microsoft now, for 3 long years.
nor updates, nor plug and play support.
what Id do is go to the GOODwill store, and pick out a
PC what has Windows 7 or newer ,used and rebuild that.
or these, they have refurbs, on pc's, almost new.
all with windows, 10
vastly more robust , safe , etc. and supported. 100%

Clean the CPU cooler and everithing else from the dust!
Turn off,open the case, use air spray to clean.
(I use vacom cleaner and a small brush, but you risk your component if you do the same! I'm professional.)

SOURCE: pc won't power ( turn on)
The green light is most likely your lan card/port. If the cord/outlet are sparking when you plug it in, I would say try plugging something else into that socket, if you get the same spark, I'd call an electrician. Also try plugging the pc into a different outlet. As far as the computer, if its not the outlet then it is the power supply, your motherboard may be fried in the process but if this isn't an issue with that outlet, then you should take it in to a shop.

Try opening the sides of the computer and running the computer, If it still freezes, look inside and see if any of the fans turn off at any time, if that Happens try pushing it to make it go, if that doesnt solve it, try replacing the fan. Buy the fan at TigerDirect.com
