Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?


the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

I had two bad PC's One would not power up. Thought power supply. Took out identical power supply from the other bad PC. Still would not power up. I fiqured bad mother board. Put the power supply back into...


Ensure the power supply at the wall is good, ensure all plugs of power supply are plugged into Mobo, especially the CPU pwr supply if it has one. You really need to know 100% if the power supply you are using is good. If so and absolutely no boot. HDD activity then I would first suspect ram then CPU then mobo. Simply remove / replace ram, sometimes fixes them.

Dell Inspirion 530. Will not turn on. I replaced the watch type battery and it came on. Went to use again and would not turn on.


check power cords. swap power cords from monitor to cpu. check the power supply if it is on. check cpu fan if spinning. check if power flea from mobo lit on. if all fails replace the power supply and mobo.

Gateway 507GR Wont Power-On after a power surge.  Had slight hissing noise in the Bestec power supply, replaced it, and it still will not always power-on. If I switch the a/c power on/off really fast...


Sounds to me the like soft on/off power switching in power supply itself is not working. Try another supply or if u have a tester try that. Wont be the motherboard or nothing at all would be happening.
Hope this helps

Hp pc m7640n won't turn on and power supply light is out


OK, this can be a hard thing to fix. Most of the time, the power supply is the first thing to go on a PC. However, when you stated that the motherboards LED came on after you unpluged the PS from the motherboard, it leads me to believe that the motherboard is the issue but the power supply might be outputting higher voltages and the motherboard might be shutting down. Since the power supply is cheaper then most motherboards, I would recommend getting a new one. Check ebay for a new power supply. It should be about $20 with shipping. If the same thing happens, then you need a new motherboard...
