POST stands for Power On Self Test.

Your computer runs some tests before windows starts, hen will beep the error codes, or beep once for all good.

What happens when you push power? Fans spin, any lights on the front light up?

If absolutely nothing, its your power supply which died. If not, it could be lots.

Did yhou move it or bump it recently?

Is there a model number on the front? as "packard bell/ 6997220100" isn't the model.

Hopefully we can get you runnning again quickly.

Hi,

You can try to remove the memory on the computer and check if the computer is making a beeping noise.

If yes, then install one memory at a time and check if the computer is able to boot.

If no, then reseat the other components like video card (if an external video card is present in the computer), sound card (if an external sound card is present in the computer), hard drive on the computer and check if it is able to boot. If you owner’s manual please refer to it.

Also, check all the cables are connected firmly on the motherboard on the computer.

If the computer is in warranty, you can contact the manufacturer so that they can replace the necessary parts on the computer.

Please post back the results.

Glad to see you're still trying to get it running.

To help you better can you dig up the system on the hp site?

If the power supply runs, and tests fine, we still have options. This could be as simple as the power button cable fell off.

I'd do as above suggested and check all the cables are properly plugged in. Mainly the big long 20/24 pin and the 4 pin thats square.
