Hi there I have an hp computer which is about 5+ years old but when i press the power button it dont power up. I can see the green light at the back but its not dark its light. Can you please help me how i can power it up.
1. Checked the wall to be certain the outlet isn't dead?
2. Tried a high wattage power supply?
3. You can get a power supply testing device and test the power supply to know if it's still good or not (I'm assuming not in your situation).
4. You might have loose cable connections from the power supply to the various parts in the computer and/or computer parts that aren't seated properly including a CPU or RAM modules that are not "snug."
