So I changed the power supply on my brothers computer (HP m7580n) because it would turn off after 5min. of
being on, I thought it would be the power supply...but now it says disk boot failure and I can't figure how to fix it
can someone give me some advice on how to fix the problem please?

Does the old PSU work...after you had changed the units?

Thank you for your reply.

I am now providing you with a link to your support page.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product...;submit=Go%20»

Please click this link, it may be related to a possible fix for your computer.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...product=3189598

If not, I would have to recommend an inspection of the inside of your computer for dust build up.

Close inspection of the CPU heat sink may reveal dust buildup in the heat sink of your Processor.

Blowing the heat sinks out with a can of compressed air could possibly correct an over-heating problem.

If you need more detailed instructions, please let me know.

Bruce.

i put the oldpsu back and it powers on but it turns of after
like 5 minutes and the fan on the psu blows out real hot air so
i figured it was over heating because my psu doesn't blow out hot air
like that

Seems like we have two topics related to the same computer here.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic341334.html

This may cause some confusion here as two topics and two different pieces of advice can cause conflicts.

Bruce.

EDIT: Topics merged, thanks :thumbsup: ~ Hamluis.

if you computer fine after you replace PSU that mean the problem is PSU...
about HDD...if you OS is windows me or higher you couldnt boot it with a different type of mainboard...but sometimes it boot...but mostly it will not boot...except you using that HDD as data drive not OS hdd...

My Brothers computer was turning off so I thought it would be his power supply, I put his power
supply in my computer and it didn't turn off...but when I put his power supply back to his it started saying
disk boot failure...So now I got to figure whats causing his computer to turn off and how to solve this disk
boot failure

Another thing I wanted to add is that i just disconnected the hdd on my brothers computer
and put back his power supply and turn it on and the computer turn off so could it be cpu that is
causing the computer to turn off, the fan works but its still getting real hot.
Thanks in advance!!!
