Windows 7: PC turns on, no image and no activity

The PSU still has the LED light, sorry. It stopped working momentarily when I removed the graphics card but I guess it was just because I plug it bad or something.

I also disconnected the HDD, as suggested and nothing happens again. Can't see any errors because I don't have any image. The only led that is always off is the orange one when that flashes whenever the computer is processing something. Which apparently doesnt happen anymore.

If you have a bootable disc,such as Hirens or similar,then try that to see if anything appears on the screen

Without a HDD, you should get a BIOS message.

It's possible that your motherboard has failed.

Have you made sure that all of your cables and cards are properly connected?

Sometimes removing the cables/cards and then replacing them can fix connection issues.

Remember to take anti-static precautions and disconnect your PC from the mains, before doing this.

Hey guys! Thanks for all the latest replies. I've been testing everything and the good news is it was not the HDD (I had a lot of work saved there...). Bad news is it is the motherboard .

I am going to invest in a new machine as this is 7/8 yrs old machine and I don't think investing in a new motherboard is a good solution. If I invest in a new motherboard I will prob need to change more stuff to avoid incompatibility issues. So, I guess a new PC is a more wise decision.

Thanks for all the help

Were you ever able to boot into the built-in HP hardware diagnostics by tapping the ESC key at boot? This is how to determine the hardware's condition. If the mobo or hard drive have failed it should not run at all.

Nope, I could never reach the BIOS or run that HP diagnosis.

Whenever I powered it on I had no image at all.

BTW, happy holidays to all
