Hey there,

Decided that I was going to have a PC to muck around with, so I just recently acquired a PC which a mate was going to chuck out - HP Pavilion 6619AP (believe AP means Asia Pacific). Micro ATX Case and a 600Mhz Celeron Processor, and other not so fancy specs compared to what is coming out these days...

When I brought it home, I plugged the Power Cable into the power supply socket, connected monitor, mouse and keyboard up, pressed the power button on the front panel of the computer, only to realise it would not fire up.

I realised also, that my mate (being a not so computer literate person), hadn't touched anything within the PC itself, hardware wise - the warranty seals and power supply configuration sticker was intact on the case itself. So I am assuming that he hasn't touched anything within the computer that may have caused this problem.

I am just wandering what could be the cause of this computer to not function? The obvious problem sounds like a power supply that has just given up, but it could be other factors, yes?

Do you hear anything go on like fans or drives spin up? Any lights on the case or keyboard or is the system just completely dead? Meaning absolutely nothing happens when you push the power switch.

Unfortunately, nothing sparks up to life. Keyboard lights do not light up, Monitor seems to have no signal being fed to it, Fans do not spin, LEDs on the computer do not work.
