My computer will not start up.

I have had this problem for a long time, so I usually don't turn my computer off.  It will not restart.  I have tried at least 20 times to day to restart it.  I turn it on and the fan starts running and then just when you think it is going to get louder and fire up it does not.  I did have some box (sorry I do not know what it was called) replaced on it and it turned on twice but know it won't start up again.  Any advise?  I tried unplugging and all that stuff several times

Re: My computer will not start up.

Open the case and remove and reinstall the memory. You might blow out any dust built up inside.

Did they replace the power supply?

Computer model number will also help.

Re: My computer will not start up.

The same thing happened to mine and it was a bad mother board. Hp fixed it the first time free because it was faulty when i bought it. Now less than a year later and the motherboard has gone bad again when i changed my hardrive. Now i have to pay to get it fixed cuz HP will not cover it. A motherboard should not go bad so quickly. So HP uses crap motherboards that dont last. I won't buy there brand again i cant afford it.

Re: My computer will not start up.

There appears to be no clear evidence that the m/b is "bad." If you allow the system to run 24/7,  for months on end, you could be setting the system up for boot failure. Ultimately, this can be traced to the hard drive, not the m/b. When the h/d is stressed for months on end, then the system is turned off, a successful boot can be questionable, iffy, or not at all. Some hard drives do not like to be run without a breather. When, after prolonged running, you shutdown, and then go to reboot, the hard drive will not respond on all occasions. Jim S

Re: My computer will not start up.

Hi Glenn,

Open up the case and unplug the HDD and CD drive. Do not have anything plugged in except the keyboard, mouse and monitor. Now start it. We need to see if it gets beyond the HP screen and the BIOS tells you that it sees no Operating syste. This will let you know if you have a BIOS problem. By any chance is the error message  "Checksum Error"?

Re: My computer will not start up.

@Jim1:  If you suspect that your hard druve has a problem then download a S.M.A.R.T  hard disk utility. The utility will provide information that your hard disk reports anout itself. That is, of course, unless you have S.M.A.R.T turned off in the BIOS of your PC.
