I have an older model HP Pavilion 521N -- I bought it new in 99 or 2000. It has an AMD processor, half a GB of RAM, etc. etc. It has been a very reliable machine for many years. It runs on Windows XP Home.
Yesterday I moved it to a new desk. To accomplish this, I shut it down, disconnected all peripherals and power cord, moved it to the new desk, then reconnected the peripherals and power cord. (A small green light on the back, next to the power cord plug, began glowing when I plugged it in. But the comptuer will not turn on via the front-panel switch.
The manual said to unconnect, then reconnect everything. I did. No go.
The manual said to check another appliance in the outlet. I did and it worked. I replugged the computer in the outlet; it still will not turn on.
Is there anything I should try next before I haul it down to the computer repair shop?
Thanks for listening.
