Hi :)
For the past month my computer has been suffering from a "turn-on problem". When the power button is pushed the computer acts like its preparing to start up, but then it just shuts off before the Microsoft Windows screen comes up. The weird thing is the power button stays on (green) as if the computer is on when it really isn't. I have tried everything from starting at last good configuration to totally unpluging it. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions as to remedy this problem I'd really appreciate it.

My computer:
2002 HP Pavilion mx70
2000 + AMD Athlon XP processor (1.67 GHz)
NVIDIA nforce 720 integrated graphics (32 MB)

Thanks!! :p

are you sure it shuts off? or does the screen just go blank? like can you hear the computer still running, can you toggle numlock, do the disk drives work?

if its actually shut off, then it might be a PSU problem

Yes I'm positive that it shuts off entirely. I don't hear anything going on, and no lights are on except for the power button and the monitor light. I can't toggle any keys or do anything because it's off. I just thought the problem might be electrical but I'll look up some information on a possible PSU problem as well.

Thanks for the help!!:)
