Question about HP Computers & Internet

No Boot After the power went out and came back on my computer will not boot. The only thing it does is flash a little green light in the back of the computer. Nothing else..Nothing..the outlet that the computer is plugged into has the monitor in it and the monitor works so it is not the outlet. Any ideas?

Try unplugging the PC from the wall outlet for a minute, then plug it back in and try it.

Precision T7400 power supply sounding an alarm


Did you open the case on your computer? It may have an open case alarm which is a small switch typically located near the edge of the cover you removed. Make sure the case cover is completely installed, then see if the alarm goes off.

WE HAVE JUST HAD A LIGHTENING STRIKE AND ALL POWER IN THE HOUSE WENT OFF WHILST MY ASPIRE E 700 WAS POWERED AFTER THE POWER CAME BACK POWER LIGHT WAS LIT BUT COMPUTER WONT START UP WITH START SWICH


Unplug everything from the laptop, remove the battery and let it sit for 5 minutes. Replace the battery only, not the power brick and see if it will boot.
Does the power brick have a solid green light? Flashing? Red?
If it will not boot off the battery or power brick it may be fried.

Have a HP m7470n. The green power light in the back is constantly on. The power button flashes blue and orange (~3 seconds each). The computer wont turn on. When I unplug the cord and plug it back in, the...


In my case it turned out to be a weak power supply. It would work sometimes and not others. If stone cold, it would not boot. If I unplugged 1 thing, like the hard drive or the CD Roms, it would boot. Tested the old power suppy and it seemed to pass. But once I connected a new power supply, the computer has worked fine ever since.

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok


Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

Try unplugging the power cord to your computer tower, click the power button to drain the capacitors in the mother board then plug the power cord back in and try to boot up. Has helped me repair several similar black screen problems. Chuck Housecall101@aol.com

Power Green Light Flashing HP Desk Top PC m7250n


During a power outage their is a surge when power come back on the grid (surge can be caused by lighting strikes akso). This surge trips the internal procters inside the power supply to protect the Mother Board, hard drive, processor and fans and any device that pulls wattage from the power supply. Since all these power using devices are trying to pull power at the same time to boot the computer back up one ends up with a loop of surge thrugh the power supply with a protective trip, reset, surge again and trip again. This will continue in this loop as the computer is trying to boot all the devices at one time (Mobo, Hd, processor, cooling fans and other devices). Simoly, more power wattage is being demanded than the protectors will allow at one time causing a protective shutdown followed by a restart followe by a protective shutdown in a continious loop.
The normall sequence for a boot is to boot the board, processor and fans followed by a boot of the hard drive, and other boot devices once the board is energised, NOT all devices at the same time, as this results in an overload and trips the protectors. This protective loop is indicated by the blinking light as the power is turned on and then shut down for protection as the wattage pull is over the demand that the protectors will allow.
Blinking light indictes you are in the protective loop.
SOLUTION: 1. Disconnect the Mother Board connector, with the computer unplugged, this will allow the power supply to reset at maximum wattage upon reboot.
2. Disconnect the Hard Drive power connector and ay boot device power supply cables, this will allow the Mother Board, processors and fans to boot without an overload of the protector inside the power supply.
3. Plug in the computer and the indicator light will be solid green indicating that it is reset and out of the loop.
4. With the computer pluged in and the Power Supply fully energised, plug in the Mother Board. The computer will now boot, and the processor fan will come on and the cooling fans.
5. After computer has rebooted, shut the computer back down and connect the Hard Drive power cable and any other power cablis that were unplugged.
6. Reboot with all cables connected and you are up and running again.

POWER SUPPLIES HAVE AN INDICATOR LIGHT FOR A REASON.
REMBER - BLINKING LIGHT IS AN OVERLOAD OF THE PROTECTORS AND ELLIMINATING THE OVERLOAD SOLVES THE PROBLEM AND THAT THE POWER SUPPLY IS WORKING AND CONVERTING POWER.
NO LIGHT MEANS NO POWER OUTPUT AND THAT INDICATES THE POWER SUPPLY IS NOT FUNCTIONING AND NEEDS REPLACED.

Hope this helps everone with power outages and lightining strikes. It is a rather common problem and can also occure when building a computer and one missmatches the power supply with the board wattage needs. If the board wattage needs are greater than the power supply output you will get stuck in a potective loop eventually. WHEN BUILDING A COMPUTER ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE POWER SUPPLY CAN PRODUCE MORE WATTAGE THAN YOU CAN CONSUME AT THE MAXAMUM LOAD.
Have a great computing experiense.

Monitor flashes on and off!


Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light
