Hp pavilion slimline x3507c pc. when I boot up the monitor remains in standby mode. I have already determined that the problem is in the computer not the monitor. The power supply is good, the fans run,...


very simple bring a new AGP card and plug in it on your pc and plug the monitor pin in new agp now start your computer . monitor will turned on.

if the monitor is not turned on its mean your have problem in your ram or mother board for that pluged out your all rams from your pc and start your computer if cpu ring a beep its mean you have ram problem and the mother board is ok but if you cant hear any beep its mean mother board's problem ram is ok.

How to get a computerto boot when it only has a black screen


Hello there everybody<br />Have you ever turned on your computer and hear that it was booting but all you got is a black screen and nothing else?<br />Well here is a simple tip that i have used on literally hundreds of support calls <br />(1) First when this happens power down the computer. <br />(2) unplug the computer from the wall and remove the power cord from the computer.<br />(3). open up the case of the computer.<br />(4). find the wires from the power supply going to the mother board<br /> and remove it from the mother board.<br />(5) now press in on the button that u use to turn on the computer for <br /> 20 seconds this allows for the ESD to be released , if you have a <br /> reset button do the same for this button too.<br />(6). replace the power supply cord onto the motherboard and plug in<br /> the power cord back into the computer <br />(7) plug in the computer and start up the computer .<br /> <br /><br /> Now you should be good to go the reason that this <br /> Happens is that Esd builds up in the system and overtime it will <br /> prevent the monitor from displaying. but once the esd has been <br /> discharged the (PROPER) WAY then it is taken care of ok <br /> <br /> I hope this tip helps you all out <br /> Best regards Michael<br />

Replaced the power supply and it still dont turn on.i think the motherboard is bad.


Sometime that will happen... the best plan is to upgrade the Motherboard if the CPU is still fast enough for todays OS demands. You should be able to use your excisting parts possibly except RAM, but that is cheep now...or... buy a new one. If you have data on your HD you need they make an external enclosure you can use to attach the HD to you new PC by USB. Or you can connect it internally.

Wont power up


Helo,

If the power supply from your friends old computer may not fave all of the correct plugs to power up your computer. You system needs 2 plugs going to the motherboard one with 20 pins and one with 4 pins. Besure you have the correct plugs. The second thing to check is recheck the friendss power supply in another machine. Last option is that when your power supply overheated and died that it damaged your motherboard and you may have to replace it too.

No power


1. Please check with the power supply of pc from a/c plug. 2. if power supply is ok then ensure that the input poewer cord is at right position in behind of cpu. 3. If you are using old type power supply (which do not autumatically turned off by operating system) then there is problem with power switch or SMPS. 4. If you are using advance power management (generally used in now-a days computers which is automatically turned off by O.S., then there may be a problem with power pin that is connecting thae mother board and power button. Shut down your computer and open the cpu chasis and tighten the pin and ensure that it is properly inserted (the location of the pin is near hard disk lid pin, power lid pin). 5. If this pin is ok then check with pconnecting wire of pin and power button and also the power button. 6.Then turn the computer on. If it does not work then check the power connectors from SMPS to mother board are properly installed and inserted. 7. If power connector is ok then there is posssiblity of problem with your SMPS (power supply) of computer. 8.Generally due to heavy load of power and long usage the condensers of smps get mailfunctioned. Take the smps or computer to a local hardware expert.

New Computer Wont Boot!


when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
