i have a hp touchsmart300, when i turn it on it powers up but 1 sec after that when normally you would see something on the screen, nothing shows and its still a dark screen, the fan or pc noise just get louder, i noticed the power button is not lighted up, neither is the bottom of the USB mouse
 
whats going on with my pc?
My pc seems to randomly turn off after being on it for sometime and refuses to turn back on again
 
after leaving it alone for some time, it can be turned back on but the same problem repeats itself
 
i just notice lately the pc is extremely quiet, i dont seem to hear roaring fan noise or even any hint of fan being runned inside of the pc
 
wat does this mean?

What you have described sounds like a overheating problem.  If you can no longer hear the fan inside the computer this is probably what is causing this to overheat.

 

If this compoputer is still under warranty I would take it back to the store you purchased it from or a HP certified repair facility to have it repaired.  The fan which is either not spinning fast enough to be effective or not at all is most likely the one attached to the heatsink on the CPU.  Overheating the CPU can damage it.

Your other topic related to this computer's problem has now been merged.  One of the topics involves what sounds like a overheating issue, while the other topic indicates that this computer won't even start.  This prompts the question of what is currently happening with this computer?

i have two HP pc of the same model but two diffrent problems, one with the working loud fans with no display and the other with the ineffective or not working fans that causes overheating, sorry for the confusion

 

i swapped out the hardrive of the unbootable pc and tranferred it to the overheated pc and it boots up and i can log in and everything else there so i know for now both of my hard drives r working

 

im just not sure whats wrong, maybe power supply problem?

Why...don't you...just post about one computer at a time, to avoid confusion?

 

Do not crosswitch anything...let's see if we can solve one set of problems...rather than compound them by your approach.

 

After that one system is resolved...then you can post about the other.
