Let assume that the machine is fine. Is the display powered? Is the data cable from the display correctly connected.

The reason I am assuming your machine is fine is because it a name brand box. And when a video card fails on an HP you get a series of beeps from the computer. The same goes with the CPU and memory.

So if the machine is not beeping, it's generally one of two things. Connections or, sadly enough, a dead system board.

Hope this little bit of direction helps,

Paul

My Desktop PC assembled is emitting quite a bit of noise. Whenever an application or a download is started, the cpu usage shoots up and the noise / vibration also increases. What can I do?


I would think the SMPS fan, sounds like it's not keeping your computer cool. CPU fans usually never cause much trouble, but maybe you could look into getting quieter fans.

Power supply unit starts (fan running) but computer does not....


Try swapping out the ram 1 at a time, making sure there is one memory piece there while testing. If no! check hard drive for activity.

Hp pavilion a1220n comptur will not start unplugged unit and when i plugged to back in it would not start


Do you see anything on the monitor screen? Does the tower make any beeping noise or clicking noise, or does the fan tries to start up when you power the computer on? Are the cables connected properly?
If you see anything on the monitor screen, or if you hear a beeping sound, let us know so we can diagnose further.

Hp a305w will not turn on.


Remove the side-panel.
Press the POWER button.
Does the fan inside the power-supply start to spin?
Does the fan on top of the CPU start to spin?
Is there any lamp on the motherboard that lights up?
Is there any noise (from disk-drive, floppy-drive, CD-drive) ?

If not, take your computer to a computer store, and get them to replace the power-supply. Hint: the smaller the computer-store, the more-likely that they will install for FREE, if you BUY from them.

Loud fan noise


hmm, it's very possible that the new fan is unable to spin fast enough to draw enough heat away fast enough. I'm guessing that this a separate video card and not the onboard video of the motherboard? and, is it the video card fan that is making all the noise?

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer


trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

Loud noises coming from power supply fan?


it might be the fan of your cpu has dust.and making it the fan hard to spindle.if you can dismantle your cpu fan or the fan in your power supply.just clean it with the paint brush.or do it with vaccum cleaner.if you have air compressor the would be better.just blow out the dust.then if you can do it also just putting oil or grease inside the fan at the core.the one that has magnet.it will smoothen the spindling.ok good luck
