Computer power won't turn on

Our HP Media Center PC m7640n will not turn on. Last night we did have a storm and our surge protector has what looks like a burn mark on the side of it. Our surge protector has a light that indicated a line fault. However, all of our other equipment plugged into the same surge protector does have power. Our computer was turned off during the storm last night. Help!

First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.

More than likely your power supply got fried from a power surge during that storm anyway. You'd be surprised at how worthless most surge suppressors are these days.

We had a thunder storm a few days ago and that we lost power and that the pc shut down by it self so the next day we try to turn on the pc so it won't turn on please can you help us


Make sure that all the plugs are plugged in. Try a different outlet, if it's plugged into a surge protector make sure that it didn't trip. Or if is plugged into a regular power strip press the reset button on the side of the strip. If that doesn't work there usually is a fuse inside the PC that might have blown.

Computer will not boot up after i disconnect power


If the component with the blinking green light is on your network card, it has nothing to do with your problem, but does demonstrate that *********** board is NOT fried or there would be no voltage available to make the light blink.

Something on your board may be fried, but not the entire board.

Unit needs board level service, so obtain an RMA, if available and submit the unit for bench testing and service.

Last night I turned-off my PC througg Windows and when I pushed the power button this morning nothing hapened. There is no sign of "life" from the PC.


Check the power source to the computer (both ends of the cord), if a surge protector is in line with the power , remove it and plug the computer straight into the wall. also check the wall plug with a lamp or something to ensure power there. make sure the switch on the power supply hasnt been changed to the 220v side.
If no power at the wall- check your breaker box in the house
If it works plugged straight into the wall- check the surge protector
If power at the wall and plugged straight into the computer (no surge protector) and nothing lights up when you turn it on- have your power supply checked.

OK FIRST A POWER SURGE PROTECTOR WILL ONLY PROTECT YOU 7 % OF THE TIME, WHICH YOU JUST REALIZED. SO YOU NEED TO BUY A BATTERY BACKUP ALSO KNOWN AS A UPS.... I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. BRING YOUR PC TO BEST BUY AND THEY WILL TEST YOUR POWER SUPPLY, IF IT TESTS OUT OK THEN YOU BLEW SOMETHING IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD. GET A BATTERY BACKUPS/UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
