Hi,

 

You have a hardware problem.

 

Hardware
3.4
The system board displays a power failure (crowbar).*
Indicates potential power system failure.
  1. Reduce to minimum config (CPU, System board, PSU, 1 DIMM of memory) and isolate failed component.
  2. Reduce further if issue persists.
  3. Test known good PSU.
  4. Replace affected component.
  5. If unable to confirm source, replace CPU, System Board, PSU.

 

HP Service or a local PC tech would have to diagnose the cause if you don't have replacement parts and don't want to do this yourself.

 

Regards

The solution was to unplug the power cord from computer, go have a beer, and replug the power! All works fine...
