HP Pavilion 500-314 will not boot after turning it off.

HP Recommended
Pavilion 500-314
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello HP Community,

 

For some time now my Pavilion 500-314 will not boot after shorty turning it off, I've tried everything and it seems like their is nothing on the internet that could help me, so I go this a try. The problem is that once you use the PC, and you're done with it for now, you come back to it later and find that it won't boot past the HP loading screen, so it won't get into Windows login. You could hear fans running and everything, but it would turn off after 2 or 4 seconds. I litterally have to wait until the next day just to get what I was doing done. This is very frustrating and I'd like to fix as soon as possible. 

 

If you need anymore info about my PC, just simply ask me in the comments and I will try to reply to you.

 

Thank you!

@IronHand12356, welcome to the forum.

 

The symptoms that you are describing could be a failing power supply unit (PSU).  Here is a guide to help you troubleshoot the problem further.  Also, there are numerous videos online that will help you test the PSU.

Hello old_geekster,

 

Thanks for replying. I believe what you're saying is true, I will have to look into this and test the PSU myself. If it is failing, I'll have to go ahead and buy a new one.

 

Thank you.
