Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I have a Hp Pavilion desktop computer. I unplug the CPU and relocated it to another desk in my home. When I went to plug it back in the green light on the back flashes but it will not power up. Is the power supply bit the dust?


Answers :

It is a pretty good chance that your power source is broken, but another one is the mother board. take the source from your other computer and test it on this hp pavilion. if it doesn't start, take the cpu from the other computer and test it on this one, first with its original source and after with the source from the other one (the one with the cpu)
