Question about HP Pavilion xl756 (P1358A#888) PC Desktop
The problem: power switch does not turn computer on. I tested everything from the wall to the computer and know that the problem is the computer. I opened the computer up and used a power meter to measure the flow of electricity. As far as I could tell, there was electricity going all the way from power supply to the power switch. I've dissembled the computer into individual parts (after drawing a picture showing how everthing goes back together). First, Where can I learn the names and functions of all the parts of the computer with photos? Second, the problem could be anything between the power supply and the switch. Really not very many parts to choose from: power supply, mother board, switch & wire. How can I diagnose the problem? Third, where can I shop for parts? Thank you Joshua
Please let me know whether the CPU box power LED is on. If it is so, The SMPS ( Power supply ) may be working all right. Try replacing C-MOS battery of the motherboard ( On most of the boards, the battery number is 2032 ) Thanks, Rajesh

It can be the power supply. Does the power supply fan work when you push the power switch ?
