Specs: Windows Vista
My comupter turn on for a second then turns off. It will go to the hp screen once and then evertime after that it will only turn on for a second then shut off.

I have switched everything, motherboard, processor, strip that has the power button....everything. Took the hard drive out and it worked in a reader on another computer, tried the ram from a different computer still nothing. I don't know what the problem could be. any ideas would be great i can't afford to buy anothe rone.

"strip that has the power button" Don't know what that is, you might want to try a new power supply, looks like that's the only thing you haven't changed.

Also, make up a memtest CD and check your ram with it. Swapping with other PC's doesn't mean the ram is working fine on the problem PC.

PS: another thing to try would be to remove all the PCI cards on the PC and then try booting up. Modem and ethernet cards go out quite often.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
