Question about HP Media Center m7060n PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hard Drive Won't Turn On

I have an HP Media Center m7060n PC. I shutdown my computer in order to move the desk/PC to a different corner on the same wall. When I tried to turn the computer back on the screen, speakers, printer, etc all turned on but the drive did not.

At the back of the computer there is a green flashing light, accompanied by a ticking sound. This light is on even when the power cord is removed. The fans do not come on either.

I know the computer was low on disc space, and I had been in the process of trying to make back up copies of all my music, pictures and home movies. I am very concerned that I have lost all this data.

We also have two laptops, and are set up wirelessly through an ethernet that is connected to the HP Media Center PC. Both of our laptops are still working.

Any help and advice would be appreciated!

    I am really not educated when it comes to computer problems so it doesn't sound silly to me.. LOL

    I am not even sure how to check the fuse on the PC power lead.

Hello there

as silly as this may sound, have you checked the fuse on the PC power lead.

Many thanks

Hp media center power

hi friends, unpluug the power chord from the wall jack after that press and hold the power button in the front for about 15 seconds, connect the chord back in and try it. if it does the same then look at the rear side of the cpu box (where the power chord goes in and look for a small fan inside the power supply box, it has to be spinning). if not then the power supply (smps) has goen bad. now if the fan is sipnning try disconnecting all the extra periferals eg printer and stuff, still nogo then try opening the cpu box (reffer owners manual). take the RAM out and try to power up the system, if it starts beeping like beep ...beep... peeeep... then turn it off put the ram sticks back in and it should work fine...
NB:-for the owners manual check this out: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&product=470506&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Power outage, now pc will not power up at all.

sounds like the surge protector didn't protect. I would change the power supply.
