Pavilion Desktop PC will not turn on

[ Edited ]

I am using a Pavilion a1510n, XP Home Media Ctr Version 2002, Sv Pk 3, Serial # {Removed for privacy}


Trying to transfer documents to newer version of Pavilion and after plugging into outlet and pressing on/off button on face of computer (bottom), nothing happens !  It worked fine a couple of weeks ago and all of a sudden it won't turn on.


Anyone who may have some idea please drop me a line. I live out in desert country of AZ about 100 miles from city.  Thanks

The first thing I would check is to make sure that the outlet is working by plugging another device, like a lamp, into it and make sure you have power. Next, follow the instructions in this document and see if you can determine if your computer's power supply is working. It's a thorough document that will lead you down several different paths depending on what conditions you find. Hope it helps.
