An HP Question . . .
I'm new to this site and thus far I'm enjoying my experience. With that being said, I do have a question about an HP (a520n) computer that I'm working on. The PC will not power on. I push the power button and it seems like it's going to start, then it fails . . . I've tried it numerous times--taking different components out, plugging it into different wall outlets, etc, but to no avail. So, my question is doesn't this seem to be a power supply issue? I can't think that it would be anything else.
In addition to the power supply, the hard drive has failed. I plugged it into a different working PC and it didn't work at all, it says that it has bad sectors and can't recover. When the power supply was working on the HP (a520n), I tried running the recovery mode, safe mode, etc, but to no avail.
My whole point in writing this thread is to hear what more experienced people think the issue is. I know that I can just purchase these products and find out, but I don't want to waste my clients money.
Thanks for your time and attention,
