hp pavilion a6000 desktop won't boot..

Hello,

I have a HP Pavilion that won't boot, no codes, nothing on the monitor or anything like that. 

 

The power light turns on and off and that is it.


I had been having problems with it locking up so I wiped and reloaded Vista.  I tried new RAM (diagnostics said the RAM was bad) with no change...

I kept getting a blue screen and it would recycle so I copied down the codes on the blue screen but couldn't find it online.  This went on for a couple of days and then it tried to shut down/restart and never started back up.

 

Here are the codes.

stop: 0x0000008E (9xc0000005, 0X9112894A, 0XA154FB68, 0X00000000)

Wink32K.SYS

address 9112894A

Baseat 91060000

Datestamp 4DE78921

 

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.


Thanks!


Jeff

Forgot to mention that the fan does work.

Hello jeffsji, The error you mention, many times relates to faulty memory. Since you mentioned you ran a memory test and the test showed memory errors, that may be something to focus on.

 

I would download Memtest and run this program to check the memory in your system. Memtest can be found Here .

 

If Memtest finds any memory errors, you might try removing all the modules except the one nearest to the processor and run Memtest again, and see if the first module is faulty. Continue to test each module one at a time until you locate the faulty module. Then remove this faulty module and see if the system works normally.

 

If you do locate a faulty memory module and want to replace it, I would suggest going to Crucial.com and run the memory configurator and find the certified compatible memory for your system. This memory may not be compatible with your existing memory so you may have to order all new memory and discard the existing memory.

 

Just some thoughts.

I gave that a shot before and tried it again with no luck.  With regard to your other troubleshooting tips the CPU won't boot at all.  No lights beyond the blue power light on top (and the fan starts up on the motherboard).  Any other thoughts?

Re: hp pavilion a6000 desktop won't boot..

Does the system beep when starting, for example 2 short beeps and 1 longer beep? You said it had no codes and I wondered if it at least gave some beep sounds, which are diagnostic codes.

Nope.  The fan starts up and you can hear the hard drive start spinning and the front lights up but that is it.  Oh and the key board and mouse both light up as well if that matters..
