Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this. There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure. What model is this?

Please unplug all cables from it including the power. Hold down any button with all cabled removed for 30 seconds. Then plug in only the power cable and test it please.

Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you. That model of HP desktop has an external power supply. Theres no internal power supply like most desktop computers. This is done to reduce the heat signature inside the machine, and also to make the power supply easier to replace. Since its showing zero signs of power, its clear you need to replace the power supply as it has failed. This link contains a discount power supply you can order to fix the problem If you have any further questions, let me know. I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent ( 5 stars ) selected and submitted below this answer or at the top right of the screen. I always answer follow up questions.Dustin S.Senior Technician and Network Switching Systems Operator / Maintainer.
