    If the monitor is not working, how do you know the mouse is not working?

    Have you tried a different monitor?

    Does the computer make any sound or beeps when you turn it on?

Pavilion s3620f has no video and won't boot

There could be many reasons for this. Open the case and make sure the components are plugged in tightly. Make sure the CPU Fan is spinning and is dust free.Reseat the RAM modules, make sure to clean the RAM slots before reseating the modules. If all this fails to give results, but a new power supply and try that, you do not have to install the power supply but can keep it outside and test it. If the MB is gone, then, look to see if she still has warranty, if not ebay may be a cheap answer for the same MB.

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s3700y that doesn't always boot. Power is getting to the computer; the light on the back lights up as well as the lights on the front. However, power doesn't seem to...

If you saying "doesn't always boot", most common would be motherboard...
If your motherboard still beeps, then probably some other components has the problem like RAM, GPU card etc., depends on your motherboard.

Hope that give an idea...

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline, when I turn it on it seems like everything is running fine since I hear the fans and the light turns blue. But my monitor keeps telling me to check my video cable, then goes...

It could possibly be a power supply failure. Make sure all connections are in place.
The only other solution I see to this is a bad motherboard.
Good luck and do not forget to rate me :)

Hp pavilion a705w. no peripheral response

The fact is *********** board is very likely the matter. See all devices that do not need the motherboard to respond are all working (cd/dvd tray opens and closes, fans are on etc). On the other hand all devices that need the motherboard to respond are not working (keyboard, optical mouse, etc). It is more or less conclusive.

HP Pavilion Slimline s3122x powers up fan runs

Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.

I feel for you... No suggestion, other than to try a different video card, but I do thank you for taking the time to check a few things and spelling them out - unless so many other popsters on this board!

HP Slimline Pavillion s3123w monitor going to sleep.

Sounds like the motherboard might be bad but go thru these steps.

Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at at time and turn on the computer after each stick reinsertion.

If that doesn't get the video to come back up then go ahead and unseat and reseat the CPU. Then try turning on the computer.

If that doesn't do it, make sure there is no power going to the hard drive or the dvd drive. Then try turning on the computer.

If you do all of these steps and you still have no video, then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
