    Just knowing that made me realize the problem had to be in the power cord and adapter then. It turns out after messing with it the male plug in part was just slightly loose and I had to adjust it barely.

    But it was you answer that keyed me to the problems location. Appreciated and thank you.

Just connecting the power supply should switch it automatically from battery to AC. If it doesn't switch to line power a few seconds after you plug it in, then there may be a problem with your power supply or the DC jack in the laptop.

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on

ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

Hp Pavilion a350n shutdown and will only boot up to a blankscreen, (no Windows logo) there is not beep, no indication of any problem, power is good, video card is good (tried three cards), switch monitors,...

I assume by power is good you mean when you press the power button on the pc it spins up.

1) unplug all the components such as hard drive, floppy and USB from the motherboard.
(so you should only have the VGA, monitor and motherboard with RAM and CPU.) turn it on and see if you get a screen. if you don't there is possibly a problem with the motherboard.

if you do get some display on the screen 2) switch off and plug in one component at a time and then switch back on. if it works turn it off and plug in the next component and turn it back on. repeat until you find the faulty component that cause it to not turn on.

My computer will not turn back on

Hi there.
Remove the battery and try to turn it on on AC power only, if it boots up there is a problem with battery, it just may not be charged up properly.
Please post back the results

Can not get my laptop (HP Parvilion Entertainment PC) power on.

  • Remove power connection from lap-top.
  • press and hold power switch
  • wait 10 seconds, then insert power card
  • hold for 30-40 seconds. Your lap will be on.
  • If no success then take a tour to HP service centre.
Also check without battery.

Thanks & Good Luck
