Answers :

I am thinking that you may have a power supply problem. If you were not have any type of problem with your computer right begore thsi started I would consider going to :\015\012newegg.com        or   tiger .com\015\012find a power supply  (ATX type is most common,check you book)) that has the saem or more wattage rating and change it out. Worst case,you have bought a power supply that you may have not needed. Likely abotu the same cost as taking the computer in for repair just to see what is wrong and still may have to buy one. Just disconnect the wires and reconnect the wires the same way. Usually this can even be done one wire at a time,or label the wires.\015\012

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?

I have a packard bell ipro desktop computer that will not turn on. I was using it when we had a power cut and once the power was back the computer wouldn't turn on. I assumed that the computer was ok and a fuse had blown in the lead, so I changed the fuse and this didn't work I also tried changin the lead but again this still doesn't work. I assume there is a fault in the power secton in the machine but have no ide what to ask for when looking for a replacement component. Any ideas? Thanks
