Having problems with your HP Desktop Computers - Hewlett-Packard 3.0GHz Intel Celeron D 160GB Desktop Computer with DVD+/-R/RW/CD... (A1110NPX743AA) ?

My friend has just moved and his comp was working before. But now when plugged into power the tower has no power. Any suggestions to what might be going wrong?


Answers :

There are a few possible reasons why it won't power on. One, it could be the power supply, look in the back of the computer when its plugged in to see if there is a light on, not all power supplys have a this light though. Secondly, it could be the motherboard and/or cpu is none operational, and was damaged during the move.
Firdt check another outlet ,that outlet maybe dead. then check if the power cord is properly seated in the plug at back of tower, then check if it has a reset button power supply, then open the case and check if duing moving the inside power connection came loose. check all the connections, then If it still wont work, either the power supply went dead or somehow the system motherborad fried
