Computer wont turn on?

By computerhelpneeded ·
Hi, my computer is an hp pavillon a6235x pc. I woke up one day to go to my pc and pressed the button, but the comptuer would not turn on. i checked the back of the computer, and the green led wass still on. i pulled out the wire on the back, but the green light remains lit for a long while. Can anyone help me fix this problem? Thank you.

Are they any beeps when you turn on?
or is it totally dead.

Still you might try this
Try re-installing RAM or try a diferent RAM.

If still nothing happens and no beeps i think your motherboard is faulty or the CPU is dead.

They are many many possibilities why you PC does not start. So please provide some more info

Well for starters I would try the suggestions here

But this really sounds like a Power Supply Failure and the only solution is to replace the Power Supply with a new one.

i have EXACTLY the same problem. i went to tiger direct to see what might be the problem and all they were able to do for free was to check if the power supply wasnt messed up. After he checked it, he said the power supply was good. So i decided to take my chances and buy a motherboard and replaced it with the one in this computer and it still didnt work... now im stuck and dont know what to do
