I have an HP Pavilion 7950 Desktop, I use to work from home, and it suddenly just shut off last night in the middle of a project and now will not turn back on. It has powered off several times recently … but only in the past few days. Those times, I was listening to a CD and the internet was running at the same time I don’t know if this has anything to do with it, but I will mention that each time it did that I was able to power it back on as it appeared to in a standby status or simply an improper shutdown asking to resume the page I was on. Nonetheless …this time it is not coming back on… Can someone please tell me what is wrong and how to fix it?

If this is a laptop, you have one of three possible problems.

1. Bad power supply
2. broken DC jack
3. Defective Motherboard

If this is a desktop, you probably have a power supply that has gone bad.

If you look on the back of the desktop, some HP desktops had a green power light on the power supply. If yours has one and it will not light up when the power cord is plugged in, then you have found your problem.

If it does not, then you will probably have to purchase another power supply or borrow one from someone to test.

Hope this helps.
