Having problems with your HP Pavillion a818n Desktop PC (Refurb) Pentium 515(2.93Ghz) 512MB 160GB (PS453AAR) ?
No power all of a sudden i went to turn on the machine and there is no power going in. it was working fine the day before. all the connections are tight and the line to the wall is live.
so the red and green light are out or not on.
the fan is not on. i took the case off and nothing jumps out. could the power supply simply fail overnight?
A voltage spike can trip the power supply into "protection" to prevent damaging the things connected to it. If this is the case, disconnecting from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes may reset the protection circuit, therefore returning normal op. If that doesn't clear it up, you ay need a new power supply.
Yes power supply is damaged due to over use.
