HP Pavillion will not boot up

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi- My HP Pavillion desktop will not power up.The power light is lit up. I did a hard reset but still nothing. I took the side cover off & noticed both fans turn on but only for about 5 sec, then they turn off. Any ideas what i could try next? Thanks.

@Pat585 -- those symptoms are usually caused by a failing power-supply or a failing motherboard.


Can you temporarily connect a different power-supply, and try it?  

It's much more complicated, and expensive, to replace the motherboard.
