I have a hp desktop about 5 years old..few days ago we had a power outage. power came on and off a few times ..i wasnt home but my pc was on when i came home my pc was off and wouldnt start..i try to push...

> bad power supply

Try an ordinary lamp in the wall-socket -- to make sure that a circuit-breaker inside your home has not "tripped", i.e., no power to anything that plugs in.

If there is an on/off switch beside where the power-cord connects to the power-supply, switch it to the "off" ("zero") position.

Unplug the AC cord from the power-supply.

While watching the fan inside the power-supply, and/or watching the fan on top of the CPU, plug-in the AC cord. One of the fans may "twitch", if there is power.

Flip that rocker-switch to the "on" ("one") position, and see if one of the fans "twitches".
Also, look on the motherboard for a small lamp -- it may go on if the AC power-cord is connected,
or may go on when that "back" switch is set to "on".

Try a different power-supply. If still nothing, then it's your motherboard that got "fried".

Computer will not come on loud sound from pavillion repeats it self. The fans will spin and the blue light on pavillion comes on. moniter screen will not come on the power light is on

On some computers, when you turn it on, the fan starts to run at 100% of its speed, i.e., very noisily.
Then, when it is detected that the computer is functioning, and _not_ over-heating, the fan will slow down, and quiet down.

So, what is the nature of the "loud sound" ?
Continuous? Beeps, in some pattern?

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for better trouble-shooting.

On HP Pavillion 512n - When I plug the computer in only the fans work and the light on the switch is on. There is no drive sound and nothing on display. Is it a motherboard problem or power supply problem?

first thing is to check RAM. Some times faulty RAM stops computer to load up and don not display anything.....if the problem persist try to change cmos battery>>> if problem still there then go for supply check>>>>last comes motherboard........

HP Pavillion 400 Power switch problem???

Could be your power supply is broken. That is a very common problem. Sometimes the computer will keep on restarting when the power supply is about to give way. I doubt it's the motherboard that is causing the problem, but then again i have never had a motherboard fail on me.

Power supply light flashing.

Computer power supplys are modular replacement fixes. Better to replace the whole thing then try to repair.
