Having problems with your HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop ?

Hp a1712n shut it down and will not turn back on nothing happens when you hit the switch

Answers :

Either your power switch is not working properly, your motherboard is not sending the proper signal to the power supply, or your power supply is not coming on when it receives the signal from the motherboard. Most likely is failing power supply, but test your switch with a multi-meter, then test the signal coming to the power supply. You will have to look up the pin-out on your model, can't tell from the documents whether it is a 20 pin or 24 pin power supply connector to the motherboard.
