Customer Question

After a brief power outage in our area, my desktop will not turn back on. I press the start button for several seconds but nothing happens. I checked all cable connections, power is on now and the green light at the back of the unit is on. Model is Pavilion Slimline s3700y and was purchased in 2009. Worked fine earlier today.

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help!

Sounds like you need a new power supply, which will require opening the case to replace. It isn't as hard as it sounds, unless you feel that you are very technically challenged. Here is a link to the power supply you need: CLICK HERE

And here is a link to the instructions you need to replace including a video: CLICK HERE

I'll be here if you need more help!
