HP Pavillion 2 years old does not turn on!

I went on vacation adn disconnected my desktop to avoid any electrical surges or blackout problems. When I returned my desktop does not turn on.  I took it to Stapkles and they said if it doesn't turn on they cannot diagnose a problem.  It is not even 3 yrs old.  Please help. I purchased it form you diirectly.

Marilug, welcome to the forum.

 

When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.

 

This sounds to me like a failed power supply unit (PSU).  Here is a guide to help you troubleshoot the problem.  It would help to know exactly what happens when you push the power button.  Also, have you checked all of the connections?

It's a Pavilion Slimline 3700 and nothing happens when I push the on button, except the green light  in the back is on.

I have the same problem with my Pavilion slimline s3321p.  less than 3 years old.  It locks up and will not turn on but the green light on the back is on.  A yellow light sometime flashes from the power button.

Like Old_Geekster said, I would check the power supply:

Hi gfuller1,

 

I'm not familiar with that model. Can you list the full name of the product? (for example, Pavilion H8-1010)
