Hi. To solve the issue of HP computer not turning on, before starting the troubleshooting, remove the devices and disks first. Next, perform a hard reset which means that you need to reduce the stored power. Then, run all the hardware diagnostic tests to troubleshoot the computer related issues. Next, ensure that the hard drive has been detected in BIOS by pressing F10 directly after the computer is restarted and checking if the name of the hard drive is listed or not. After this, refresh the PC and reset it by clicking on troubleshoot and then refresh your PC. Next, run the MS system restore using recovery disks and finally perform the HP system recovery.

Hope we helped.

If you have a computer that doesn’t turn on, here’s how to troubleshoot. If your HP machine is a desktop computer, check that the power cable at the back of the CPU is properly and securely connected. If the cable or plug is a little loose, push it in to secure the cable. Also, make sure that the power outlet where you connect or plug your computer has power.

Plug other appliance to the power outlet to check that it has power. Once you verify that the power outlet has power, plug your computer then see if it works. If this doesn’t work, check the back of the CPU and verify that the cooling fan of the power supply is working. If the cooling fan is not working then you probably have a busted power supply.

You can remove the power supply from the CPU and bring it to a computer center or shop to look for a replacement or just bring the CPU to have it checked by a qualified service technician. Since it is HP, the power supply is custom-built so you probably need to bring it to an HP service center.

On the other hand, if the cooling fan is working but the computer doesn’t start, try to remove and reconnect the power supply cable from the motherboard then see if it works. If this doesn’t work, I guess you really need to bring it to an HP service center because the problem can also be related to the power supply.

Before, I have checked a computer that has the same problem. The cooling fan of the power supply is working but the CPU doesn’t start. There is no beep error when I checked it. When the power supply was replaced, it worked normally again.
