Having problems with your HP Pavilion Media Center m8425f 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad Q6700 3GB 1TB DVDRW DL LS GeForce 8500GT Vista H... PC Desktop ?

I have an HP tower that won't power up...there is a green light on the back that steadily flashes unless you unplug the machine-then it slowly stops flashing. The unit is receiving power, however, neither the fan nor the motor are working...as a matter of fact, I can't even get the unit to ''turn on'' when I push the power button


Answers :

She/he states flashing green light on back, might be on the power supply which could indicate bad power supply. More then likely this IS the issue as the fans dont work when turned on. Also, the slowly dimming off is probably the power supply as the caps discharge. I recommend replacing the power supply or having someone test it.
It is commonly the power supply unit that has not enough power to power on the mother board or the mother board itself is faulty. Rarely the RAM might cause the problem so get a working Ram from a working one and replace it to test. If the Ram is not the cause and you have the two to look at. Thanx
