I was just given the following:

HP Media Center m1070n
HP Pavilion 724c

and I investigated my neighbors laptop that on deplayed the "battery has power lite" and is plugged into the laptop. It has been sent back to the mfr. for repair.

My question is concerning the two desktops, which display the same symptoms.

No power on function, although the 724c has a power LED that is green when power is plugged in.

It seems unlikely that the actual power switch is bad, thus leaving the power supply and mother board.

Have any of you Irregulars had any experience with these models and the power supply issues? My nephew would like his back so he can play the occasional game, thus my spending the time on these "things I consider a paperweight"
