Solved!

PC Dead?

HP Recommended
Pavilion P6000
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)
Hi, i need help on my desktop. My PC is 6-7 years old now, and I have not turn it on for close to 2 months now. I just turn it back on recently, and it was running fine for a few minutes, so I left it alone and when I came back, it's "dead" and it could not start up anymore. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you for the additional information.

 

If it were me, I would buy a PSU with at least 500W.  This will not cost that much more and it will give you extra power for peak use times.  I believe it may even make the PSU last longer because it puts less stress on it.

 

I like Corsair products.  A modular PSU is good for small cases.  This allows you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary, allowing for better airflow which will keep the components cooler.  Here is a PSU that will work for you.

@Werewolf98, welcome to the forum.

 

What is the actual model of your computer?  There are numerous versions of the P6000 series.

You are welcome, @Werewolf98.  Thank you for the additional information.

 

I believe that you may have a failed power supply unit (PSU).  Here is a guide to help you troubleshoot it.

 

Also, you should test the memory.  You can do this by removing all of the modules and replacing them one at a time and booting.  Of course, if it boots the module not in the computer has failed.  I have had this happen to me.
