    Help! I am an avid Mac (y) user, but have a couple of older windows PCs (n). I also have experience repairing computers. The computer I need help with is a HP Pavilion m9000. It used to have Windows Vista but I put Ubuntu 14.04 on it. It has worked since I bought it in 2009, but a couple of weeks ago, I tried to turn it on, and the tower booted, but no externals worked (I use a wireless mouse, plug-in keyboard, and HDMI/VGA monitor). I have opened the tower and cleaned inside, as well as looked for loose wires and other problems, but it still does not work. If I could get the keyboard and monitor to work long enough to boot to USB, I might be okay, but the keyboard does not do any input and the monitor does not receive a signal.

    What can I do to fix my computer?

    Thanks

    nothing works in the back of the computer ???
    how long ago did U install Ubuntu ????
    I would say to try to print something but U can't get it to show anything on your monitor------
    I would say its either something to do with Ubuntu drivers
    or somewhere where the I/O ports block is soldered to the motherboard is cracked / broke----
    and if the solder is cracked / broke then that would be a repair shop fix----
    U could look on the motherboard to see if any of the capacitors are leaking or swelled
    look burnt-----anything on the motherboard around where the I/O port block is looks wrong--

    I'll leave it to the Linux guys here on the site to check Ubuntu with U-----
