Simple test: disconnect the hdd and see what happens. If the pc no longer shuts down then yes, the hdd has died.

Have an HP pavilion G7 wont boot, no power light , replaced mother board, still wont boot. Removed battery plugged in a/c cord still no boot? Help?


G7 what, it has full model number not just G7,
that means near zero. in fact.


what does boot mean? its a long serial process.
sure no windows (no windows stated, XP?)
the power must turn on and first.
hear that fan run? feel it blow? vents clean first.

The G7 Pavilion is both a desktop PC and a Laptop,
silly no, but HP did that, google G7 , SEE?

I guess the BATTERY thing is not the CMOS battery but the huge , Laptop battery. smart act taking it out first. they do short.
but what about sound, and the fan blowing. it must blow
or the Power pack is dead.
i bet the old mother board was ok. and you didnt do the strip down test to prove that.

ever heard of these?
1: CMOS RTC BIOS NVRAM COIN cell, replace it first.
if not the BIOS can not load configs. ever. again. bad bad bad.
2: power pack dead if fan is dead. replace it its only $8
or use a voltmeter is it enters the mobo 19vdc, is ok, less that 18v not.
3: then if the fan is still dead, power dead, BIOS dead.
and external VGA port dead to external monitors, then
we pull modules off the MOBO, up to 6 or more
they all can short and when they do, power goes to ZERO
the regulators do that by DESIGN.
(the no catch fire deal)

sure wish you said (lap or desk top sure did)
after all the Desktop PSU may be bad, if its fan is dead.

My Gigabyte Mother Board shows some time Load Optimized Defaults then boot / Load Optimized Defaults then reboot / enter BIOS. How to fix it?


Two things come to mind first. Number one would be making sure you have the most up to date bios. Number two would be that maybe the motherboard battery is dying/dead and isn't holding enough charge to after being shut down to save the option you selected.

No boot hd disk error


Hi,
HDD not Detecting only Some region, if you HDD data cable damage, HDD power Cable damage, HDD port damage, or HDD bad sector. But normally you change HDD data or power cable or mother board port. And i suggest mother board all connection disconnect and only HDD connect and open bios and search your HDD detected.

Yes it may be. When you cut it on will your Cap Lock light come on? If it does most likely it is your Hard Drive. You also if you have a system bootable disk place it in your CD-Rom and see if you system boots to it. If it does then your hard drive has a failure or a Virus has ate your boot sector.

Powers on, Fan runs at high for 10Sec's then goes off, but no OS loading nor any visual activity on the Display.


your screen may be broken.
Do you see the BIOS message at the beginning of the boot up? If you don't, then the screen or the video card/circuit is dead

Asus k8s mx mother board problem


To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS.
Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE.
Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.

Problem on Boot


Hello tccat1,

Definitley sounds like a bad motherboard, however, try removing the memory and using a different stick if you have some. Maybe 512 see if you can at least get it to post.
